Decided my page needed an update. Everything on here was still valid, hower let’s just freshen it up, start anew.

Hubby and I and our dog, moved to Annapolis valley NS this summer after 22 years in the city. It wasn’t our intention but life happens, this time was breast cancer. Thankful it was only in the duct, lumpectomy with clear margins, some radiation and “ they say” that I am fine. Well never the same after a cancer diagnosis. I have to see my dr every 3 months for the next 5 yrs. so that put a stop in our full time rving idea. However, we did get out of the city, quieter, calmer area, walking more, eating better.

I have missed spark, but got caught up in fb and pinterest. Oh how I can dream on pinterest! So decided slow wayyyy down on FB. Organize my pinterest ideas and get back here. So many have left, many are still here.

Started eating well after my dx, did great till started selling house, pack, move etc. Been here 5 months and oh past month and half been eating well. Sooo low in sugar and grains. However eating lot more veggies.

I have been deamed a sp motivator... guess it’s my perseverance! But now it’s going to be cos I reach my goals. A few more arthritis isdues to deal with, learning to adapt exercises so don’t wreak my rotator cuff more, hurt my hips etc. But hey if there’s the will there’s a way... and with a few “always there for me SP friends “ I will succeed.

My 60th birthday was 2 wks after being told I had cancer. A scary time, this year has bought anout a lit of changes. One very important one is I have learned how strong I can be. If I can fight cancer, I can certainly fight a cookie or muffin!

So thanks to old friends, welcome new!
Loving myself, my life and my dreams.

    I eat leafy greens and lots of veggies. I don't really cull any veggies unless I don't like them and I don't cull any fruits except for the high really high sugar ones but I keep my carb intake a day at 125gms or less.. I'm not going to do without meat. It's counterproductive as sugar is the fuel that cancer uses and it comes from all carbs. They are all converted into sugar.

    When on plan I'm eating fresh or frozen uncured meat, high quality fish and seafood, eggs, veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts, almond milk, cheese, healthy fats like olive oil, occasional legumes, and rarely grains like rice or quinoa. I try to eat this way at least 80% of the time if not more. The better I adhere to it the better I do.

    I eat minimal processed foods, less sodium, less artificial sweeteners, and less omega 6 fatty acids. I avoid transfat, nitrites, nitrates, hormones, antibiotics, additives, chemicals, pesticides, preservatives, dyes, junk food, fast food, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, fruit juice, farm raised fish, cured meats, caffeine, MSG, alcohol, soy, gluten, foods that come in tins containing bisphenol-A, microwave popcorn that contains perfluorooctanoic acid, low fat foods, diet foods.

    I don't expect perfection.
