Cancer Journey

I am thankful for a cancer diagnosis.

I am thankful for a cancer diagnosis. Good morning! Hope your Thanksgiving was a great time to connect with family and friends and recount why you are thankful. I am thankful that on March 9th, 2010 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma. Does it sound strange that I am so thankful for receiving a stage 4 cancer diagnosis? It may, but it’s true. Right from the beginning God worked in my heart to see cancer as a blessing and not a curse. The months following that diagnosis were filled with fears, anxieties but HOPE always won out. His promised always proved true. Here are some of the biggest lessons I learned. 1. Perspective. With only God’s help I was able to see a cancer diagnosis as a way to grow in my faith, allow God to love on me and choose to not complain or say, “why me?” Instead…

Healthy Moms Hey there Momma, I have been looking forward to talking to you. Are you a stay at home mom, working mom or a little of both? Do you find yourself being pulled in all different directions? Are you juggling a lot of roles, multi-tasking between work, homework, sports activities, scheduling appointments and cleaning the house but never feel like you are fully engaged or doing a good job at any of it because your mind is always floating around to the next thing you have to do?  You want to nurture your children, feed them healthy foods, tell them to make good choices, be active and involved in their communities.

Is Convenience Making You Fat?

Eat Less Crap Eat More Food

Is Convenience Making You Fat? Have you ever thought, Hey, if I’m overweight and I want to get rid of fat, I’ll just eat “low fat” and fix the problem?   Did you go out and buy lots of “low fat” foods? Scale way back on your calories? Buy those little pop in the microwave freezer meals that say “Healthy” all over them?  It seems like that would make sense right? If so, how did that work out for you? Unfortunately, it may have helped for a short period of time but I suspect it failed to produce lifelong lasting results for a healthy weight and healthy body.
