Week 5 day 3 done and dusted ! This means a lot to me


Recommended Posts

Hello there, this morning I completed the scary week 5 day 3 and... I've nailed it ! I wasn't sure I could do it but once I started running I knew I could just go all the way to the end of 20 mins . This program really works, you just need to commit and enjoy.


Just 6 months ago I was completing chemotherapy following a mastectomy for breast cancer. I was so weak that I couldn't lift my legs to climb stairs.  One month after chemo I started to walk, first just at the end of the driveway and back , but little by little I started to regain energy and lose some weight. I weighted 95kg at the end of treatment , I was so bloated on steroids I could not recognised myself, but now, after months of clean healthy eating and exercising I am 84kg and committed to lose another 15kg.


So this morning I ran 20 minutes non stop. Words cannot express how happy and grateful I am to be alive and healthy.


If an overweight, 42yrs old mum of two, cancer survivor , ex (20 years) smoker can do it , you can do it too. Super excited now to see how the rest of the training will go.


Have a great weekend everybody

Wow, youre an inspiration! Good for you Federica. Its always amazing to me how strong not only cancer survivors are but anyone who come back from a debilitating illness and live a healthy and fit life. Congrats on week 5 day 3 thats always a huge step in the program! 

Keep it up!
