Freeze Out Cancer 5K - GIVEAWAY

I ran the Freeze Out Cancer 5K last year.  It was my second 5K ever and I did pretty good.

I just registered to do it again this year on Sunday, December 15th, 2013 at Riverside Park, NY

I like running different 5K's, but this one has a special meaning to me, it's close to my heart.  As a cancer survivor it is something I wish we can do -- "FREEZE" cancer forever.

Happy 1st Birthday Heavy Girl to Healthy Girl!!

Happy 1st Birthday Heavy Girl to Healthy Girl
How time fly's!!! It has been a year since Heavy Girl to Healthy Girl was born, and what a year has it been.

I must confess that I didn't want to start a new blog, since I already have a cancer blog (A New Camino) and share a health blog (The Voices of Two Mujeres).  I started writing about my weight loss on my cancer blog, and got many e-mails and messages suggesting to consider splitting the journeys.

AHA 2013 Lifestyle Change Award

This past weekend was amazing for me.  On Sunday, October 6, 2013, I was honored to have been the recipient of the American Heart Association 2013 Lifestyle Change Award.

Thank you to the Jenny Craig Hartsdale Center for nominating me for this honor.

The Lifestyle Change Award is given to individuals who have made a positive impact on their health and quality of life, and influenced or inspired those around them to do the same.

Never thinking that I will win among many other nominees, I got an e-mail on Friday that shocked me. It was from the Regional Director, Westchester & Putnam Counties of the American Heart Association  letting me know I have been selected as the winner of this award.
