Hello! I am wondering if you still have kickingmycancer bookmarked?
A quick note to tell you that I am doing great!
I recently had some friends ask if my site was up and running, which, no it was not because I let it expire. Too many people being diagnosed with breast cancer so I decided to renew it and fortunately wordpress hangs onto the data just in case!
It has been over two years since my diagnosis and about a year and a half since I finished treatment.
I am now nine months into nutrition school at Bauman College which I love immensely. I intend to blog about the Eating For Health model designed by Dr. Ed Bauman, my school’s founder in coming months. The focus is whole foods and plant-based (which does not necessarily mean vegetarian/vegan). The program acknowledges that all bodies are unique and that there is no “right” diet for everyone. Diet Direction refers to meal planning based on certain percentages of macronutrients. The three diet directions are cleansing, balancing, and building. So based upon specific goals one can be following a diet direction with varying percentages of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. The school is amazing and I am learning a ton about meal planning, digestive physiology, macro- and micronutrients, in addition to therapeutic uses and properties of herbs and whole foods.
I recently summited Mount Shasta with three girlfriends. An epic milestone!
I hope you are enjoying life, setting goals, and achieving them!!
