Today at work was one of the most productive days I have had in a long time. Maybe it was because over half of the office was out of the office or maybe today was just one of those days that I could turn the brain off from thinking about Cancer and just focused on my to-do list. Oh how I wish I could have more days like today.
Food still taste awful. The family ordered pizza for dinner last night and I could hardly eat. I can not even describe what it taste like in words. But it is a huge deterrent to eating. When I started this journey back in August my Doctor told me he did not want me to eat fresh fruits or veggies. And you know that is the one thing I have craved since then. So, I made a decision to ignore Doctor advice on this one and eat what I needed/wanted. And that means, fresh fruits and veggies for me. I have made other choices that are good. I have stopped drinking Diet Coke. I have been drinking Diet Coke since I was in high school., giving it up has been unbelievably easy. I have almost detoxed myself from caffeine. The only liquid that really taste good right now is water.
Each chemo week my weight drops a good 10 pounds without even trying. Yesterday when I weighed in at the Doctor, I was down about five pounds from the last doctor appointment. Now the God Lords knows I have a few extra pounds to lose but this is not the way anyone should have to do it.
