After going through cancer treatment, I have gained a new appreciation for my body and as a result, I have made many changes to help me take better care of it. Exercise, obviously, is of the utmost importance. It is something I have always done and will continue to do. I currently do predominately cardio workouts, jogging being one of my favorites, with a light weightlifting regimen as well. I don’t think I need to explain why exercise is important; it just makes you feel better and relieves stress. As far as diet is concerned, this is where I have made the most improvement. Before my cancer diagnosis, I was an athlete so I really didn’t care what I put into my body. However, now I am much more wary about what I consume; I try to eat fruits and vegetables as often as possible and I have cut back significantly on unneeded sugars (soda and candy). For protein, I try to eat mostly eggs, white meat, and fish, although I am still a sucker for red meat every now and again. And of course, sleep, glorious sleep. If I don’t get at least 7-8 hours I am pretty much useless. That sums up my best attempt at healthy living; nothing special, but much better than before.
