Wake up

Friday, January 11, 2013

Well, I've been ignoring my nutrition and fitness for awhile and gained back about ten pounds. That's disappointing, but what's worse is that I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December. I'm only a month in and already the road has been very rocky - fear, pain, uncertainty, anxiety, financial worries. It's been very trying, emotionally, but one thing that has come out of this so far is a renewed commitment to my health. Nutrition, rest, and caring for myself are my top priority. I've been eating healthy all week, taking my supplements, drinking a gallon of water a day, and got a flu shot. Don't wait until something's wrong to do something right!

On a side note, my friend set up this page for me to help cover living costs while I go through treatment. If you're feeling generous, check this out: www.giveforward.com/sara

    I admire your positive attitude and commitment to taking care of yourself, doing those things that only you can do for yourself. May you find blessings in unexpected ways and places as you go through this trail in life.

    Love and hugs and heaps of positive energy to you! Lean on us whenever you need to - we are here for you and have gone through similar journeys. I wish I had known about SP when I went through my treatment (9 years ago!) because it is a very loving and caring community.

    All the best,

    Lyn (in Australia)

    I'm glad that you're wanting to be healthy but sorry you are dealing with the breast cancer diagnosis. Healthy living is an underlying benefit to every health challenge. Good luck on your journey.
