"I've always planned to live up to 100. I realized that if I had to do it, I had to change some bad habits, incorporate new habits and make sure that these changes last forever, one way to get started was to start my blog, not only is connection a great empowerment tool, but it also encourages me to constantly try new foods, to try new ones exercises, to question myself and to share my experiences, good or bad, with others.Last year, I underwent a double mastectomy as a result of a breast cancer diagnosis , and I attribute my quick recovery to the health changes I've made in recent years.I still have surgeries ahead, but I'm confident that I'll be able to heal quickly at new.Mr surrounding people like-minded was essential so that I could continue to lead a life full of healthy habits.
