Diet and Fitness for the Right Reasons…

Long term weight loss comes from the right inspiration…  The wrong inspiration might help you lose, but it may not keep you inspired enough to keep it off. Real and lasting inspiration has to be about you and your future, not that class reunion or that wedding, not your significant other or anyone else… It’s about doing what’s best for you.

As a survivor, you need to keep your health a priority and realize that if you don’t take care of you, no one else can. Balance is key and remembering that this body is a gift that you need to care for, for no one other than you.

Have a great week and will be offering up more posts this week…

The Evening Giggle… The Bucket List

Tonight’s movie recommendation is The Bucket List directed by Rob Reiner and it’s a movie that touched me as a sarcoma survivor and as a lover of good stories. There’s a wicked sense of humor that I think is often a requirement as a cancer survivor and a heart touching buddy story that will bring you to tears.

Two very different men dealing with terrible cancer diagnosis’s (if that’s spelled wrong, just overlook it, as it’s late and I’m tired), coming together to take on unlimited adventures from their “bucket list” and learning from each other’s differences. Roles played wonderfully by Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, with heart and humor. Added sparkle brought in by Sean Hayes playing Nicholson’s assistant, Thomas.

There are some seriously crazy stunts  and sparks flying throughout, taking you from a hospital room, fighting for survival to racing cars and skydiving on a crazy road trip.

A movie with a lot of heart and soul, as well as great belly laughs. Just the pick-me-up a person needs, as well as inspiration to live our best and biggest life.

Welcome to Chaotic Survivorship… A site born out of the “desire to inspire” and offering hope to those living with and beyond cancer. With a slightly (or not so slightly) twisted sense of humor, hopefully helpful advice, and stories from the battlefield to show that the fight can be won.

I want this to be all that I was looking for with my own diagnosis. I’m not even close to a doctor, but I am a seven year cancer survivor with a razor sharp wit.

Posts will be once a week, unless I get quirky and something comes to mind (which is ALWAYS possible), with that anything goes.

Enjoy the site and let’s make this fun!
