Why “Rack Attack”?

Some have asked about my team name for the 2018 Race for the Cure. First of all, I’m whacky, so you know I’m not going to have a normal team name.

Again, I consulted Google for names (because while I am whacky, I’m not very creative or original when it comes to naming stuff). So I found a bunch of silly names, some of which I will absolutely utilize in the future.

“Rack Attack” stood out because I was a 90s child! And what TV show was huge in the 90s? That’s right, Saved by the Bell. And what was the band name in Saved by the Bell? Zack Attack! So, it was obvious to me what I should choose for my first goofy team name.

Next year will be something different, as will the year after that, and so on.

Race for the Cure

I mentioned in a previous post that I’m putting a team together for the Lowcountry Race for the Cure. Here are the details:

Why am I racing for the cure? It’s one thing to wear pink ribbons and talk about supporting a cause. It’s another to do something about it. That’s why I decided to show that I’m More Than Pink™ by racing for the cure and raising funds in support of Komen’s vision of a world without breast cancer.

Is it hot in here?

Yowza! The last two weeks, the hot flashes episodes were off the charts. I even checked my temperature one night just to make sure I wasn’t overlooking a fever. They’re like how they were when I was going through chemo.

During the first few cycles of the Lupron, the hot flashes were just that…flashes. I’d blink and then they were gone. I thought they were a piece of cake. Ha. Hahahaha.

I should have known better. Nothing about life with C was easy, why should anything after C be easy?

I have an appointment with Dr YB tomorrow, so I’ll talk hot “flash” management with him then. That and sleep. I’ve had a heck of a time falling asleep this last week, which I don’t believe is related to the hot flashes since they don’t necessarily occur together. I forget what number my infusion cycle is tomorrow, but I know it’s close to the end. I want to say I have one or two more after this.

I also have an appointment with Dr H tomorrow. I’ll get drained again. I know this because I can tell there’s extra juice in my abdomen. Yay.

I’m restarting my clean eating tomorrow, and exercise, I’m looking forward to fueling my body with stuff that’s good for me again. I felt so good, physically, when I was eating clean before the surgery, and I wish I could have kept up with it post-surgery, but my appetite was just so off that I felt like I needed to just eat what I could.

Also, I’m creating a team and registering for the local Komen Race for the Cure. I’ll post the details here once I’ve got it all together, in case anyone is interested in joining or supporting the efforts. It’ll be Saturday, September 22.
