Getting Back to Normal

I’m really embarrassed at how infrequently I’ve been blogging. I’m well, but my attention has been focused on other things—mainly trying to develop a regular routine again. I’m working about 2/3 time, exercising regularly, marketing The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte, trying to get my garden in, and researching the new book. Blogging always seems to be the last thing on the list.

The good news is that, judging from how much exercise I am able to do, I seem to have built my stamina up to my pre-cancer levels. However, that’s still not all it could be because, during the six months before the diagnosis, I was working too much and not taking care of myself. Hopefully, my energy levels will continue to improve if I stick to my program of healthy eating, regular exercise, and slow, very gradual weight loss. But I don’t want to minimize this milestone. Even though I still have a long way to go to meet my end goals, I’ve achieved something important in getting back to where I was before the cancer.

I’m not going to make any promises about when I’ll be back to regular blogging, but I’ll try not to go a month between posts. Hope you are all well!

  1. Glad to hear from you, and congrats on your stamina improvement! That’s really awesome, and will (I’m sure) only continue to improve.

  2. I had no idea you have been undergoing radiation. (Even though you mentioned moving your blog, it’s taken me awhile to get here.) Glad to know that you’re feeling better and that you’re working on another novel.

  3. Well done, Ruth. I’m glad to hear you’re getting stronger.
