Appointment with Dr. Powers.. Working on Stress, Mindfulness, Cognitive Therapy, etc…!!!!

Back at #MDAnderson again today with Dr. Powers at #IntegratedMedicine!!!  Have been working with her once a week for a while on #stress , #mindfulness , #CognitiveTherapy , etc…..  Pre January I missed appointments frequently and now actually look forward to seeing my Doctor every week!!! She has given me so many tools and ways to communicate and deal with stress more effectively.  Cancer can be extremely stressful so having a therapist for me has really improved my quality of life in many ways. Thankful for another awesome doctor on my team 🙂 ~ Jamie  ...
Mom Duties, thankful for every moment!!!!

Mom Duties, thankful for every moment!!!!

Mom Duties last night!!!! So thankful for every little moment that IV C and my crazy #cancerfreeway health regimen has given me my life back!!! The little things.. like taking her to get a hair cut, getting inside rides she is too big for (lol), helping her with a science project, etc….. Just months ago I would have struggled to do any of these and I am so thankful for my health, being able to share the little moments with her and feeling good for the first time in years!!!!!!! ~ Jamie     ...

Getting veggies into smoothie for breakfast on the road to MD Anderson

#Veggies for breakfast….. So it’s always hard to imagine how to get veggies into your breakfast and this is my way.  Strawberries, blueberries and spinach smoothie on the road back to #mdanderson this morning again.  Trying to live #thecancerfreeway takes a lot of planning and prep work but soooooo worth it!!!!!  ~ Jamie  #cancerfreeway     ...

Mom to the Rescue!!!

Mom to the Rescue!!!

Mom to the RESCUE!!!!!!!!!!  Mom picked up organic ingredients to make what they call their “Raw Energy Smoothies” and came over to teach us how to make them.   I have been doing great getting 10 juices sometimes up to 13 a day (every hour) but still struggling to find easy healthy meals for lunch and dinner.  I don’t have the energy or the time to cook what I should be eating for lunch or dinner, so am planning on using this recipe for my lunch and maybe as part of my dinner (with a salad, etc..).  Soooooooo thankful I have a mom that never gave up on me and my previous unhealthy eating.  Now  I need her more than ever and she has been super supportive!! ~ Jamie   ...
alcoholic & bartending / sugaraholic & selling candy = good idea? Probably Not!

alcoholic & bartending / sugaraholic & selling candy = good idea? Probably Not!

So if you were a recovering alcoholic do you think bartending would be a good idea?? Probably not!!  Well…. I am a still a recovering sugaraholic and we had to work the concession stand for spring branch for our daughters softball league today.  It was probably my hardest challenge since home from Hawaii (from my complete lifestyle change) and surprisingly the candy didn’t bother me at all.  Took a pic with an old favorite, lol.  Think the hardest challenge was smelling the hamburgers!!!!!!  Good news, I made it with no junk food or sugar relapses!!!!!!  🙂 Big x on photo below added by my daughter. ~ Jamie       ...
Hammock Time!!!!!

Hammock Time!!!!!

    Hammock Time!!!! Just added a hammock to our backyard and now getting my Vitamin D by laying outside in the sun for a little bit before heading over to get some work done.   Before cancer I was working in the real estate industry full time as a Broker (started my own brokerage) and investor, but all of that went on hold over the last several years. Every now and then I still do a LITTLE real estate and actually have to do a little work today (listing a house), lol 🙂 Seriously love our backyard!!!! Great place for working on Mindfulness in nature.  Also.. Planning on making a meditation area. ~ Jamie        ...
