Survivor diary: 5 years ago I was “super fit” but had no idea I was “super sick”.

Jeez!  What a title!  I really am a firm believer that just because you look or appear healthy it doesn’t mean you are.  I am living proof.  When I was 39 I was working out 4-5 times a week and looked very fit.  I thought I was eating clean and had a great diet watching closely to what I ate.  I didn’t watch close enough and I didn’t understand how much emotional stress I was also putting on my body by just harboring so many emotions from years prior.  I am a former martial arts instructor and also taught cardio classes.  Fitness was a big deal and I just couldn’t believe it when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I have since gone through treatment and recovery not only consists of changing my diet.  It also included strengthening my mental health by learning how to not be so stressed out.  I can tell you that a great thing I learned from the journey of once having cancer is that it does humble you.  I am grateful for the perspective that I now have on life.

Eat well, live well, take good care of your body and mind,
