Healthy M&M Blizard

/
Who doesn't love a thick vanilla M&M blizzard from Dairy Queen? I always love it at first but after I feel so full and bloated. Here is a healthier version with 1/2 half the calories and fat and about 6 bags of lettuce that you don't even taste.

Surviving

/
Survivor: the remainder of a group of people or things; a person who copes well with difficulties in their life. This word, the reason I hate going to a doctor I haven’t seen since I was diagnosed,  the reason I don’t want to explain to people what I’m healing from. The guilt I have for even using the word. Take for example tonight I decided to wear this shirt to bed, it’s been in my closet since the day of the breast cancer walk because I don’t believe I’m worthy of it.

How a cancer diagnosis hasn't stopped my health and fitness journey

/
I don't think we can ever prepare ourselves for a cancer diagnosis or any other devastating bad news, but I have to credit my investment into personal development and self-love in helping navigate through this time in my life.  You see, 3 years ago I was struggling with my self-esteem, the lack of success on getting pregnant and the blame game on why my life wasn't were I wanted it to be. I had to take a hard look in the mirror and realize that I was sabotaging my own life. Since that day that I decided to take control of my life and make the necessary changes required to move forward and I haven't looked back. 

The Unexplainable

/
Two months ago I started having some pain in my left armpit and it would randomly show up. I just thought it was sore from my workout or something. About 5-6 weeks later I felt a small mass in my left breast. It wasn't anything big and I would just keep an eye on it. Well after a few weeks it felt bigger and hurt a little more. I told my husband I think I should make an appointment.
