End of July

Sunday, August 03, 2014

July came and went with nary a bang to speak of. Realistically I realize that this is a good thing in my life right now.

My husband has been up and down for most of the week.
I have been having an "I hate cancer" week. It has just not been easy.
My neighbor told me that her son was declared cancer free. This is very good news and I really am happy for her family. BUT- I had a moment of intense guilt when I recognized that I was envious of her. My family will NEVER get that. I hope that this makes me human and not a truly bad person.

My week was so-so. I did journal daily and wrote about a number of what I call "Emotional Eating Moments," these are where whether I eat or not I recognize that my emotions are big and food is calling. I hit most of my workouts and ate better than the week before. I could have done much better at logging things (even with the new app.). Thankfully it's progress, not perfection.

My goal for this next week is to continue with my workouts, and log everything everyday. I have shopped and put the meal plan for the week on the fridge in hopes that this will help with my eating.

My plan is to keep it simple this week and build on what worked last week.
Here's to the end of July.

    Welcome to the Cancer Spouses team. Can I ask what kind of cancer your husband has and how he is doing with it? Let us know how we can help, even if you just need a shoulder or an ear!
