2011 started out with all good things. I was feeling good and ready to take on the world! After the switch from Arimidex to Tamoxifen my body just seemed more able to take on new things. Plus my mind was clearer and I felt that I could now do so much more. My new mantra became “sure I’ll try it!” I was also feeling much better about my appearance. The weight and puffiness was gone and my hair was long again! I could feel it blowing in the wind and I could tie it back into a ponytail and I could use a straightener or a curling iron and I could feel it brushing against my back. I had brand new hair which was a nice change from bald. Much more work but I was not going to complain!
Since my whole family was playing hockey, I figured if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. So I did. I took a few more hockey lessons and then was asked if I was ready for the ladies league in our town. I wasn’t ready but I thought what the hell. No time like the present. So I away I went. I was really nervous the first night but I knew most of the ladies so they made me feel comfortable. Every time I would get all the gear on I would check if my hockey bag was empty to be sure I had everything on somewhere. I might not have it on in the right spot but I was wearing it somewhere! I hoped that my skating would improve since I had never used hockey skates before. I could skate okay with figure skates but this was a whole new ball game. I also tried to get out to public skating once in a while to practice a bit. Anyway, it was so much fun playing and I laughed so much that it really didn’t matter how crappy I was. I just did my best and had a blast.
