First Chin-up. Yay!

Some of you may remember I recently began a weightlifting program to hopefully improve my bone density. One of my personal aims was to improve my upper body strength enough to be able to do a chin-up. Today I achieved that!

What a feeling to achieve this. My body has been through so much and the aches and pains (Femara plus who knows what effects) are depressing at times. But today for at least that moment in time I felt like I was winning the battle to not only stay cancer-free but to have the best quality of life I can too. :p
