So excited you are here!!!! Thank you for being a part of my journey!!!
This is genuinely a journey. I have never been one to care “tons” about health. I guess I was kind of comfortable. Cancer changed the way I think about EVERYTHING! What’s important, and what is absolutely NOT! When I say that this is a journey, for me it means that everyday, I want to learn something new, one more thing to improve my body, mind or spirit.
I had never really been very disciplined, driven to do any kind of exercise (regularly), I despise most fruits and vegetables….that leaves….well, the WRONG stuff! If there was a tomato, some lettuce and a pickle on my burger, I counted that as 2 servings of vegetables! French fries were worth two more….and, aren’t there “real” fruit juices in gummy bears? That has to count for something!
I am NOT here to tell you that I have changed all of my evil ways! HARDLY! I can’t pass the cookie/cupcake section in my local grocery store without having a package of “something” because of “my husbands” sweet-tooth! Heaven help us if I find the “we baked too much” rack in the “clearance section”! I eat a frozen breakfast sandwich every morning with beef jerky as a side, and Lord help me, I can’t pass up a chocolate pop tart to save my life! Of course…I have added two amazing smoothies everyday, loaded with GREAT stuff (to be discussed later)! I do intermittent fasting and make better choices for the rest of the day….mostly :). Another HUGE thing is that I committed to walking at least 20 minutes 5 out of 7 nights of the week….sad, I know, but it is 100% more than what it was! Baby steps, everyday of my journey!
Cancer also gave me the nudge to go back to school and get my certification as a Natural Health Consultant. I have been fascinated by “supplements” for as long as I can remember. I had always studied ways to improve my immune system, but only half-heartedly…I was “comfortable”. That is not good enough anymore and I am committed to waking up all those NK (natural killer) cells and trying to get my body to fire on “all cylinders”.
In comes a cancer diagnosis to add to my health quest. I have studied and read so much about this horrid disease that I actually corrected my surgeon on her original diagnosis. Did I mention how much I was “online” the first couple months after the big “C” was slapped in my face? I must have logged over a thousand hours “surfing”. Dr. Google N. Web MD at your service! UGGGGHHHH!
Bottom line, as we get started; my goal with this blog is to bring together people who want to make changes in their lives to better their health and overall well-being; for those who have and want to share how; for anyone who has helpful information and insight into how we begin to achieve better health; if you are an expert or professional and are willing to lend your expertise…PLEASE DO! If you are any or all the above, I hope you will walk with me!

Hey Kath, My wife and I Michelle have been through stuff. Her colon cancer, My son Kenny’s heart issues (three heart surgeries, 2 open heart) and two bouts of meningitis with two of our children just to mention a few. We will follow your blog. There is strength in numbers and “family”. Thanks for doing this and letting us be a part of it.
Thank you KJ and Michelle! It’s just in the beginning….but I have lots to say! More questions than answers…but if just one thing I’m doing can benefit someone else…or if i can get a laugh or smile…job done!
