Emily’s Cancer Calendar

This is the calendar that sits on my FitDesk. I use it to track some of the day-to-day things I accomplish, because I need to remind myself that having cancer is a job. A hard one even.

The numbers inside the circles indicate how many minutes I spent actually riding the FitDesk that day. The stickers (yay stickers!) are for the days I ride, even if it’s a day that I can only muster five minutes. At the end of the month I total my exercise minutes and check the odometer for my total mileage. I also mark down the days I leave the house for doctor appointments, labs, fluids, etc. I note the days I take chemo, and what round it is.

I put a giant X on days I feel like shit and just can’t. And as I draw the X, I remind myself that rest is a to-do item as well. One thing that’s heartening is that I have fewer marked on the month of March than I do February.
