I'm determined more than ever now! I had CF Clinic on Tuesday. If you didn't get to see our vlog that Andrew & I made afterwards, check it out on YouTube here!

So yes, we are pretty happy about the step up in lung function and my stable weight. It doesn't mean I can slack on meds or stop trying so hard. There is no break with Cystic Fibrosis. But a good clinic gives us hope. Andrew & I hang onto every good clinic we can. Especially since lately my health has been a yo-yo, always going up & down. I'm hoping to break that cycle and continue upward.

I want to work my hardest during my nebulizer treatments. Believe it or not, even though I do them all, I get os used to them that sometimes I forget to breath them in. I put them in my mouth and start chewing the mouthpiece and breathe through my nose. I don't even realize I'm doing it. It's a horrible habit. I'm also excited it is warm out again!

That means I can start walking (and trying to jog) more often. I am preparing for my first 5k of the year on April 22nd! AND it is a 5K for Cystic Fibrosis near where I live. If you live in Central Illinois make sure to check it out! More info is on their facebook page HERE!

I'm also going to get back involved with the PiYo class in town and even start working out as much as I can.

As Dr. K said "this is only step towards 60%" -which is the ultimate goal. Also he would like me to reach 115 pounds. I am hesitant, considering how short I am, but I made a bargain to gain it. He made a good point that I can gain muscle & gain it slowly. I do agree I need to be at my healthiest!

And I haven't forgotten about those surprises I said we have to announce soon!!  Keep tuned...

 For everyone celebrating Easter, I hope it is a beautiful Easter!


  1. Hi Cheriz,

    Spring is so special to so many people and it's lovely to read how it has extra meaning for you. Congrats on the increase in lung function. I'm a big believer in celebrating health victories and I wish you many cooperative body days.

    I love to walk in this weather!



    1. Thanks Ashley. I always celebrate even small achievements. I always try to find the positive and I'm loving the warmer weather!
