Just another cancer – related update

Published July 17, 2018 by lynn k scott

I have been steadily changing my diet over the last couple weeks.  I will have to say, I actually feel a lot better.  To some, the dietary changes may be extreme.  I believe it’s easier for me, from all the other attempts at dietary changes, because my life literally depends on me being successful.

There have been two times I have “cheated”.  They have been small cheats such as eating soy sauce (has gluten) and I forgot the other cheat.  Anyway, since my body has been eating healthier, it really didn’t care for my choice to upset its new-found balance.  I have done those cheats before, but this time the reaction was stronger.  I have dedicated myself to not doing that again.  I really don’t like the reactions I had and repeat performances won’t be necessary.

I am using my new juicer at least every other day.  I am loving the combinations.  I am using less fruit and even added a few new vegetables.  I’m not really a spinach fan, but am finding it’s pretty good mixed with carrots and ginger, among other vegetables.

I am trying new food combinations.  For example, made lentils for the first time the other day.  Yesterday, I made lentil tacos (no cheese or sour cream) and they were really good.  The more I go without dairy, the more I don’t miss it.

I have been able to lend support to a friend who’s mother is Stage IV in her cancer battle.  It feels nice to be able to give back to a fellow cancer warrior.

I have also decided, I’m not putting off purchases because of “what ifs”.  I am taking back what the cancer tried to steal from me.  It will not be successful in making me second guess my life and its longevity.  As I have stated before, I have handed this over to God and he is in complete control.  He has brought such peace, that I can’t possibly fully describe the feeling.

I recently made a vehicle purchase.  It wasn’t the right time (credit wise), however, my other vehicle chose to push the envelope, so good-bye pickup, hello challenger.

It’s almost been a year since I heard those horrible words, “you have cancer”.  Gone from sadness to anger to acceptance to fighting.  I will be successful.  I have cancer but it doesn’t have me!

Don’t Rev On Me

Published May 13, 2015 by lynn k scott

Last night I was heading out to a meeting.  I was at the stoplight, right before getting ready to access the freeway.  A new, shiny black charger pulls up next to me.  I could see two young males in the car as the driver starts revving the engine.

I have become a car snob over the years.  I freely admit this.  I grew up with always driving run-down cars, never purchasing new and something always needed to be fixed on our cars.  I have been involved in the import scene as well as having dealt with muscle cars.  I have been a participant in numerous car shows (against my will but that’s another story…) and I’m not as “car-stupid” as I used to be.

As this “kid” kept revving his engine last night, I couldn’t help but think:

  • Give mommy and daddy’s car back to them
  • If you knew anything about cars, a CTS has beaten Chargers in a variety of categories, including performance.
  • You actually think your 4-door, family car, is even comparable to my luxury sports car.  That’s cute!
  • If you really wanted to sports car, you would have gone with the Challenger and not the Charger.
  • Speaking of sports cars, try that crap again and you best hope I don’t see you with MY Challenger; my other car.  Doubt you’d pull the same, stupid stunt then.
  • Don’t rev on me.

Btw…Chargers aren’t bad cars. Since I own a Challenger, there’s just no comparison (imo)

Again, I admit I’m a car snob.  But I’m a downright b*tch when it comes to “children” thinking they are grown and want to race, when they are clearly outclassed and don’t have the common sense of an ass; sorry mule.  I don’t race, but I do know how to drive.  That’s all I’m sayin’.
