Morning haven't posted for a while as life very hectic at moment. Still managed to lose 2.5lbs, not much but its been harder of late. I have been attending hospital for radiotherapy several times a week and in between I have been determined to carry on with my cycling. I was determined to take my place in the 10 miles of the 100 mile ride with my eldest daughter. (She was completing the 100 miles !!!!) It has been hard but I absolutely refused to give up. I have continued to be out most days even though some days I have only ridden for a couple of miles then come home for a rest, then yesterday joined in with the huge crowd and my daughter of course ! to complete my bit of the leg. It was amazing I have never felt so exhilarated and buoyed on. Took me just under 2 hours as I had to stop a few times as was quite tired, but hey ho all completed. My lovely daughter also completed her 100 miles, I'm in awe, she is absolutely fantastic and amazing. She said that she is going to do another one, she has invited me to do it with her(may give it a miss, think 10 miles is my limit at the moment) We managed to raise over a £1000 for cancer and epilepsy so great result all round.
Today I have another proud child day, as my middle daughter is graduation from Cambridge and I am attending her ceremony of graduation. Bless her she has worked really hard and has already started teaching at a primary school, sorry for rambling but I am a very proud mum !!!!!!! Of course there will be a luxury high tea after so I am not going to worry to much about food, I will of course try to make some wise choices but I am not going to beat myself up if I slip up
Tomorrow is my day to get back on with my fab at 50 plan and I really feel the last few weeks have taught me to keep persevering no matter what happens. I have seen some things that have made me feel even more grateful for what I have. We never know how much time we have and we should not squander it on making excuses, but live life to the full. I feel very strongly that taking care of yourself is the first steps to doing this and you cannot support others if you do not 100% support yourself. It may seem slightly selfish and I know it's hard but, in the long run you can give so much more.
So here is to the next week and I hope all of you have an amazing and fulfilling week. Remember kindness to yourself is really important.
Big hugs to all xx
