The Audacity To Live...




I've been moving and shaking in the myeloma community, and it feels good!
Anyone who has wandered onto my blog, know that I'm doing and feeling well...
Sort of, as I did have walking pneumonia some weeks back. If it's not one thing it's another. I'll have my labs drawn and a follow-up in a few weeks and pray there won't be any hiccups in my remission stage.


Well just to get you up to speed, I did a presentation at Mount Sinai Hospital on the Stain of Racial Disparities as it relates to Multiple Myeloma. I touched on the way of the few African American advocates with this disease; We're far and few between, yet cover this beast in higher incidences. Apparently, this conversation has opened up the door to more discussions such as this, and I'm happy to keep at it!

I've been working on a fitness coaching/ trainer business and look forward to our website in a few months, or sooner. So I know exercise can be a sore subject for many, as who has the ability to workout after treatments? Well, I know all too well the challenges as fatigue hits many of us strong. Yet, with that being said, this has been my savior of being active while on treatment. My experience has been trying to keep positive and active while having this disease. Could this be why I'm in remission? Who knows but I'm sure it hasn't hurt the outcome. I'll offer my clients an online hub to follow my suggestions in being fit with restrictions. I hope to share this with you very soon :)

I'm honored to have been accepted to 2019 Healthe Voices in Dallas Texas. Healthe Voices is a spectrum of engaging and impactful advocates repping their platform. I was one of the few repping multiple myeloma. There are some interesting things in the works as we move in #madabout myeloma movement... won't you join me?

Well that's about it.

The audacity to live is about trying, moving and staying relevant as we face this disease together!

Best

Still Kicking and Moving All Around

Hey Everyone,

I'm doing well on this end. I'm currently in remission, and my follow-up next week will actually reconfirm that. We will also discuss the next steps.

A lot has taken place this year and I'm just moving with the flow of things. I've been doing my share of writing via different formats online, so I'm excited about helping those also going through myeloma or any other blood-related cancer. I know this is still a harsh struggle for so many of my fellow MM's.
I know in the past few months a few people I follow on social media have had a time with the prognosis of their disease, and one has recently passed away. When I hear stories like this it reminds me, that no matter remission this is still a blunt reality that never leaves you. I will always be on pins and needles, as so many of us living this new life. However, with that said I'm LIVING MY BEST LIFE and doing what I want to do, with a great bunch of friends and family in my corner.

2017- 21 Day Fitness Challenge.. With Dex/ Krypolis & Rev

Okay, so I've been displaying some of  my journey when it comes to fitness. My weight has been up and down for about a year now. I'm petite- so my normal weight was around 120lb before I started taking my myeloma cocktail. In 2016 after a horrible all goes wrong with a root canal earlier in the year- my weight dropped from 130lb (gained 10lbs) to 110lb.... it was that bad! Anyway, I recovered from that but found my weight was still leaning towards the danger zone for someone my height (5'3").
I'm on a journey to change how we think our lives cannot change despite a chronic illness. I believe and have successfully pushed on my twitter the need to stay fit and healthy despite the situation- well aspiring towards a Fit trainer- I gotta look like I know what I'm talking about.

I'm taking part of a 21 Day Fitness Challenge and looking forward to sharing my journey with you.
Tomorrow is the day and I guess I'll do more posting than I normally do.
