Cancer and all the things that go with it

Sun through trees

My mom’s cancer this time feels different. I am not sure I worry any more or any less — but watching a parent go through cancer affects you differently as an adult than as a child. I often relive the fear and concern I had as a child, watching my mom and family experience cancer and all the things that go with it: hair loss, doctors appointments, missing activities because she isn’t feeling well, and the overall fatigue that takes over her body.

A to Z: Reflections

A-to-Z Reflection [2016]

Another year of A to Z. And for me, a challenge within a challenge — to find, try, and write about an exercise for each letter of the alphabet (or in my case, some letters had several exercises).

A to Z: Walking

W

I chose walking to highlight for me “W” exercise, because not only is it universal, but it is a great way to control your pace and place.

A to Z: V-ups, vertical mountain climbers, and vertical swing

V

The letter “V” brings three very lucky exercises: V-ups, vertical mountain climbers, and vertical swing.

A to Z: Upper cuts, upper back stretch, upper back-leg grab, and upward stretch

U

We are entering the part of the alphabet where things can get a bit creative, to say the least. But thankfully I found decent “U’s” to keep me busy for this post. Without further ado, let’s uncover upper cuts, upper back stretch, upper back-leg grab, and upward stretch.

T

Today’s exercise is highlighting the good ol’ treadmill. Straightforward yet timeless.
