I struggle with my body like many of you and yes, I had cancer and that was my “speed bump” on my way to my dream body. I hate the fact that my dream body was just within reach, I had made plenty of strides and had already come so far. I had the drive, the desire, to take my training and lifestyle to the next level and then “life” or “death” or the fight for life got in the way. Well, what ever, excuses…….my speed bump was only suppose to be a year; treatment, surgery, more treatment, I’m cured and I could go continue life as I know it, at least, that is what they make you believe. Well, my first body transformation that I did was, well…. 4 years ago and took about 1 1/2 years to obtain. It has been 3 years of being “cured” and I am, just now, finally seeing results!!! I admit that I have not been the strictest, on my diet nor exercise but I definitely haven’t dropped of the wagon of the healthy lifestyle I once proclaimed. To be honest, I have been on a consistent life of eating healthier and have been extremely excited to say my energy level has increased and pain level from side effects have decreased! I am starting to see the positive changes but they are so much slower! My body reacts differently, my hormones have changed, I have had to relearn everything about what I knew about my body. It has been a frustrating lesson but I am moving forward. I will reach my goal and I will not beat myself up if it doesn’t happen tomorrow. I will applaud my baby steps!
For what ever struggle you may be having, do not beat yourself up over it. SH%T Happens…fix it, get’r done, do what has to be done and then get back on the horse and start over, continue forward and move one. Don’t ever let yourself be stuck in proverbal quicksand. If you want the dream, get it! No matter what! Sometimes it just takes a little longer then planned.
