My Planned and Unplanned Summer Adventures
It has been a really busy summer and I wanted to let you know about the latest adventures I have going on in my life right now. I have been planning the first one for over a year and am very excited to announce the release of my new book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Hormone Weight Loss, on September 2nd! It will be available in book stores like Barnes and Noble and it can be preordered on Amazon.
My second adventure came as a bit of a surprise. On June 1st, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My immediate thoughts were that I live and I am able to use this experience with cancer to help myself and others. It has been a challenge for me, my husband, Rob, and my sons, Eric (age 15) and Evan (age 11) to come to terms with the changes in our lives. However, we have been overwhelmed by the amount of support we are receiving from everyone: family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. Over the next six months, I will be treated with chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and an intensive IV nutrition program. In addition, I am focusing on healing my body and learning to slow down.
As I heal over the next months, I will focus on keeping you up to date on the newest information on nutrition and hormones through my blogs and radio show, Aging Without Limits. This week, I will start a two-part show with Marge Piccini, a fantastic life coach, on transformation. What happens when things are going well in your life and you have an involuntary event that creates a major change in your otherwise wonderful life situation? My obvious change was a breast cancer diagnosis but many of us have involuntary changes such as divorce or job loss. Learn how to move through these situations to make the most of your experience. I will make sure to keep you up to date with my progress and success in overcoming this challenge.
