Again, it’s been too long. I, like most of you, have been trying to navigate my way through this weird world as best I can. There’s been a lot of adjustments, a lot of winging it, and a TON of flexibility. If I had to choose one word to define the last two years, I think it would be “flexible.” We had to develop so many new ways to do old things, right? Sometimes at the very last minute.
This will be my last post here at Boobs, Sweat, and Tears – the epilogue on my cancer book. I think one of the reasons I’ve had a difficult time keeping up with things over here or turning it into something new is because this was always about the big C. It was a wonderful outlet for me, and I hope it was a source of knowledge for others as well. I don’t plan to delete the blog, I’m just not going to add new content. I’ll still reply to comments, and I encourage people who happen upon this blog to contact me using the form on the site if they have any questions or want to chat more about their experience with breast cancer or about my experience.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and blogging. It’s why I always come back here to try to start up something new. I’ve officially decided to take my hobby somewhere else, though. I’m pivoting over to Jen Pivots! A personal behavior change blog that will focus on my journey to being the healthiest version of me. I’ve struggled with nutrition and fitness my entire life, and while I eased right into my fortieth year, it also hit me like a ton of bricks that I needed to get myself into gear. My body, my mind – all of it. And what better way to keep myself accountable than to share my journey on the internet.
If you’re interested in seeing what kind of trouble I get myself into, head on over. If not, then this is good-bye. This blog has been such a ride. So many good things, so many frustrating things, and so many painful things have been documented here. Real, raw stuff. Thank you for being part of it. Thank you for the kind words over the years, and the encouragement. My doctors told me, in the very beginning, that one day this would be a blip on my radar. They were right.
Take care, and thank you again!
