Try Before I Die

June 2, 2012


My first meal after cancer surgery - I had a great fear of the unknown and started the blog a few days later

I originally started this blog because of fear of the unknown. During the course of writing over 480 blogs I've heard more stories about death and disease than I could've imagined. Most come to me personally and they've inspired me to live life to the fullest.

Two days ago, I went to my primary care doctor and all my blood-tests results came back perfect. I asked, "Is there anything I can do to improve?" - I was told, "No, the numbers are as good as they can possibly be." However, that's exactly what I was told nineteen months ago, a few days before another doctor informed me that a very aggressive cancer had attacked me. But now I only worry about cancer every ninety-days - when I get checked to see if cancer has re-invaded my body.

My new focus is on improving and sustaining my quality of life for as long as possible. I feel great but I can be in better shape - so today I started a longer exercise routine. This new routine eats up much more time and I may not be able to get a new blog out every morning at 4:50 AM.

If you don't see the blog post change at 4:50 AM don't be alarmed - I'm okay, I'm just working out! The blog will change at a later time. Please check throughout the day. I've been putting this exercise routine off for a long time but I know it's something I need to do. Something I've got to Try Before I Die.

 


I'm inspired to live life to the fullest


All my blood-test results came back perfect


My new focus is on improving and sustaining my quality of life for as long as possible


I did cardio today


I walked on a steep incline today


I'm swam in my turbulence pool today as part of my workout


We pulled the boat out of the water today - but of course that won't be everyday


After today's longer workout I cooled off in the backyard. It was time consuming and hard but I know I can get back into shape
