Just Another Day….
Author: Shannon Miller
One third of the way through treatment and this is a good week. Unfortunately, I haven’t slept well in the last couple of nights. I’m feeling good but I find myself trying to cram as much as I possibly can into the day just in case next week is rough. Probably not the best balancing act but I’m working on it.
Today began with a visit from my good friend (and star of SML Fit Pregnancy and Body After Baby DVD’s) Jackie Culver. She came by to take me and Rocco for a walk. When girls start talking, yikes! We walked 3 miles without missing a beat. Being able to maintain a certain level of activity has been such a boost to my mood. Thanks Jackie!
My hair continues to drop and my skin has become more sensitive and dry. I’m going through Aquaphor at an alarming rate! But most important I’m preparing for a big day tomorrow. I know that hair is just hair and, frankly, my hair has always been a fight. (Yes, you all remember the huge frizzy, curly ponytail, the big bangs and scrunchie) At the same time, when I think about shaving it I’m still a little nervous. I have that same feeling in the pit of my stomach that I did before trying a difficult new skill. A little queasy, a bit of fear and a touch of excitement!
