It’s been a year since my total gastrectomy. It flew by. I can’t believe where I am today. Although I’m very thankful for where I am, I still see I have a lot “healing” to become who I want to be.
For example – I went from 207 to 156 lbs and I’m hovering around 157 now. I’d like to build some muscle and get back to 165 or so. But – it’s been harder than I thought.
I also want to get back into regular training for triathlon and marathon. In order to do that, I have to have my eating dialed in and I need more sleep to recover from workouts. I used to rarely get sore, now I get sore after a decent workout. No big deal, but I need to do better at planning.
I have a 70.3 IronMan coming up in April and training is underway. After taking Nov/Dec off, I have lost a good bit of fitness. So – I’m going to have to be very disciplined to do this. Stay tuned!
