This month we celebrate incredible cancer survivors….like Linda
USE IT, MOVE IT, OR LOSE IT….WORDS TO LIVE BY
Linda had a past life. Now she has a life where she LIVES WELL.
BEFORE LIVE WELL
“In the ‘past life’ my diet consisted of processed junk food. Exercise meant reaching for the TV remote. I had a sit-down job glued to my computer and headphones. My mind turned to mush during many sleepless nights, simply trying to deal with the stress of everyday life,” says the New Westminster LIVE WELL member.
She had not one, but two wake-up calls.
The first was being diagnosed with “the BIG C (cancer)”: I almost lost it. That was my wake-up call to make healthy choices. I used my brain to move my body and sought help. The second wake-up call was learning how to deal with diabetes,” says Linda.
AFTER LIVE WELL
Enter LIVE WELL and her decision to embark on a brand new life.
“I have learned how to lead a healthy lifestyle with my mind and my body. I love having a changing exercise plan designed just for me, including cardio and strength training. The staff are caring and provide gentle guidance and motivation for each member to have a good workout,” she says
Linda loves the class sizes, and how bright, clean and cheerful LIVE WELL is “and the music keeps you moving!”
400 WORKOUTS STRONG
One of her greatest possessions is her “400 workouts’ T-Shirt that she wears with pride - and she is working towards her 500 workouts T-Shirt and becoming a lifetime member. The rewards of all her hard work include a leaner, lighter, and stronger body, more energy and a mind to match!
Now retired, Linda is an 8-year cancer survivor and has eliminated her daily injection of Victoza, a diabetes medication. “This was on my doctor’s orders! My blood glucose levels are within normal range now!!!”
Linda is planning a long retirement, walking her French Bulldog Diamond and going on fun adventures. “I have learned that movement is magic medicine, so I am not done yet! Thank you LIVE WELL!”.
