#tbt When I went to Disney World in October. Looking forward to going back this upcoming week and warm weather! But first @youngsurvivalcoalition summit tomorrow in Orlando. Last year was my first year going and for the first time since I was diagnosed it felt good to not feel alone. Looking forward to some breastie time and meeting new ones too. If any of you are going, let me know! See you guys tomorrow! #YSCSummit2018 #rdtravels

Still one of the best lessons I’ve learned on this journey. Awareness=Education=Prevention=Early Diagnosis, Diagnosis Reversal Or No Diagnosis At All.

My go-to snack these days... @so_delicious coconut milk yogurt alternative, @younglivingeo Einkorn granola, a sprinkling of ground flax and then banana, frozen raspberries, cacao nibs and unsweetened coconut flakes. Often times I mix up the fruit, but the base stays the same. It’a a great way to get my serving of flax for the day! Plus, thanks to the cacao nibs, my brain thinks it’s getting some chocolate. 😜😂 #phytoestrogen

You may not be able to see the muscles but trust me they are building and right now after an early morning session at pilates they are crying.
.
.
I started reformer pilates late last year, did a month at one studio and then switched to @studio_pilates Henley beach...best move ever.
.
.
I am not gonna lie, classes used to intimidate me and so did lean bodies in lycra with high pony tails, but moving my body and strengthening my body is important...to me. So I got over myself and got moving. .
.
Turns out I love pilates and so does my body, I now attend 4 classes a week and can feel the difference. I love the challenge, love the music, love the instructor and guidance videos and love working in a class environment.
.
.
I also love being a curvy, middle aged plus size chick representin' and breaking stereotypical exercise moulds. Babes, don't for one second let age or size dictate to you what you can or can't do. You CAN move your body, just find the exercise and class that you feel good doing and show up! Oh, and sometimes you gotta push through fear but the rewards are sweet!  #yourbodyconfident

Contemplating this message today, day 1 post-surgery to remove all my lymph nodes on my left side, as a precaution to cancer recurrence. There's the tendency to just "want to get past it", past the physical pain and discomfort, to move on. To return to life as I knew it. Yet, if we take that approach to life's challenges we miss the growth opportunity behind it. Under the surface there's a gift, a gift to connect with your soul on a deeper level; to dig deep, to be still and realllly hear that inner voice that beckons you to live life large. To expand. To be present in the moment. To allow vs. resist what is. You can't change what is. But you can change or shift how you respond to it. THAT is key to both emotional and physical healing. #LivingWellThroughCancer #cancerthriver #LIVESTRONG

“Ha! Look at her, she stopped yet I’m still spinning despite cancer in the lungs and body beaten by treatments” 😏💭<—- Words I thought to boost me up, as I peaked to my right at a woman who slowed down half way through the class. 
Then my spin instructor (coincidentally) screamed, “Do NOT look at anybody else! You are your own competition. You showed up today! Now give it your all.” *Ouch* That got me thinking... who am I to judge. I don’t know that woman. I don’t know what she’s been through. Maybe she suffers from injuries or trauma far worse than mine, yet here she is, at a 9:30am spin class, sweating bullets! 
Who am I to judge, because I guarantee, no one else in this class would ever guess that I’ve been through 1/2 of what I’ve been through by glancing at me. 
I clearly had that reflex to make ME feel better about MY weaknesses. But why do we put others down to lift ourselves up? Often, that’s the only reason why we judge people in the first place! 
In order to encourage others, we must learn first, to encourage ourselves! And that’s exactly why I love spinning at @victoriaparkmtl.

Thank you @drea_wheeler @spinner.girl @mtlyogagirl and soon, @spinturban for reminding me that I am stronger than I think. 
Now, when I spin, I see the room exactly like it is in this photo. No one else around me. The only person I am trying to be better than, is... myself. #victoriaparkmtl #vicstrong

We are so chuffed for Niki signing her first book contract! #Repost @niki.hardy with @get_repost

This grin says it all! “OMG, I’m signing a book contract where I’ll write a real book with actual words in it ... for you to read.” 😃👍🏻👀👍🏻 To be honest (and you know I’m genetically predisposed to brutal honesty) it’s sat on my desk for 3 days unsigned. I’ve been too scared to sign it. 😩But no one gets to skip the tough stuff life throws our way and we all need a friend to walk with us through the poop, so I’m going to face my fear and do it anyway. 🤓😬Life doesn’t have to be pain free to be full, but so often we believe we have to wait for the current poop storm to pass before we can experience it. That’s RUBBISH!! Complete nonsense 😩👎🏼💩 !! This book will be a no nonsense down to earth friend cheering you on and offering practical help and real life stories so you can thrive and not just survive whatever’s come your way ✅ If you can’t wait for the book and need some practical help and encouragement I’ve got heaps of resources and talks for you over on my blog. www.nikihardy.com (Link in the profile) see you there friends.

My last #throwbackthursday for today is my boy on his tractor. He loved that tractor!  He rode it nonstop and loved to hall hay out to the coops in his trailer. He has dreams of being a farmer when he’s older and doing woodworking. He is just like his dad who’s his best buddy!

Continuing my #throwbackthursday pictures of life at the old house with this sweet picture of my two oldest. Notice the egg in one of the girls hands,  they loved gathering eggs and still do. We got our first chickens when they were this age and now as a teen and preteen they are both huge animal lovers like their mama and have dreams of being animal rescuers when they are older. They spend hours searching the internet for dogs they can try to talk me into adopting because they know my weaknesses and that I love animals too and wish I could rescue them all!

A cancer diagnosis couldn’t stop this gorgeous warrior and professional athlete from THRIVING. Diagnosed at 26 with ovarian cancer, Jennifer Keddy ( @jennkeddy ) is one inspiring bad-ass and the definition of a THRIVER. We couldn’t be more honored to share her story to encourage and uplift you on this #thriverthursday
-
Tell us about the day your life changed: “I was in Germany playing professional volleyball at the time. I had no friends (minus the teammates I had just met months before) and no family with me where I was. Except for the friend that was visiting me over her Christmas break, I was completely alone. She came with me to my appointment and was there when I received the news. The doctor didn’t speak English so she used a translator to tell me. They began talking about the size of my tumor and surgery and treatment plans for afterward. At that point I went into shock and basically blacked out. I couldn’t believe that I, a healthy 26 year old professional volleyball player, had cancer.”
-
What makes you a THRIVER: “My positive attitude, spirit, and faith make me a thriver. This whole time I have had a sense of peace and comfort, knowing that even though I am going through this trial, it is where I am supposed to be in life. Whether it is to inspire people by my positivity or to bring awareness for other women. This is what I am supposed to be going through right now in my life.”
-
Advice/Tips for others faced with adversity: “My advice would be to not let these trials dictate who you are and what you do in life. Stay true to yourself no matter what!!”

Where my book nerds at? 🤓 When I first received my diagnosis, I spent WEEKS researching anything and everything I could related to breast cancer and how to heal it and survive. One of my favorite books was this one, Radical Remission by Dr Kelly Turner (@radicalremission). It truly gave me hope that no matter what the stage, I could triumph over cancer. Now I recommend it to anyone with a new cancer diagnosis. Currently I’m trying to compile a list of helpful books to share with others. What have been some of your favorites and I’ll add it to the list!

Too often we don’t take the time to truly listen to our bodies.  Our bodies are miraculous, but when we don’t take care of them, they slowly break down.  It’s funny how well we clean our house, or take our cars to the shop all the time, check the oil, check the tires, but we forget about our bodies!  I have been ignoring some signs my body has been telling me, but at the same time asking the universe for relief, and it has come to me.  But not with easy decisions to make.  I will embrace the new path and trust in where it will lead me.  Thank you “body” for sharing your story. 🙏 I am listening 💕.

Warm summer mornings in the garden and mornings like this are my absolute favorites!  I love how snow makes everything so quiet and peaceful.💕

This was me 6 years ago. Why am I posting this? I am posting because I want you to see my smile. I look happy. I look healthy. I was on the set of filming Booty Barre with my friend @traceymallettfitness. I was really struggling to keep myself together. I felt light headed. I blacked out at one point..... but didn’t tell my friends on set because I did not want to let my friend down. I knew something was wrong with me... I just didn’t know what. I was really insecure because my stomach was bloated so when we took pictures.... I had to turn to the side to hide my pooch! I went home and cried that night. Why?...... because I knew something wasn’t right. I went to doctors and I was assured I was fine. I started to think I was making these symptoms up. A few years went by and I said enough is enough. I KNOW there is something wrong with me. Still.... the doctors said my blood test all looked fine and I that I must be constipated so to exercise more and take miralax... a stool softener. Ha.... that didn’t work. Eventually, I demanded tests and got answers! Stage 111C ovarian! I was so angry because I let this cancer grow inside of me for years! I wonder and think back to the time this picture was taken 6 years ago..... what stage was my cancer then? If they caught it early... things would have been much different.... but they didn’t so I can’t continue to say “ what if”. It is what it is....but please ladies...... if you have symptoms of bloating, constipation, urinary infections all the time, low back pain, night sweats, these are the basic symptoms.  I had all of them! You never know what is behind someone’s smile.........#smile #behindeverysmileisastory #bootybarre #traceymallettfitness #ovariancancerawareness #ovariancancer #neverjudge #listen #friendshipgoals #friends #cancerawareness #cancersurvivor #cancerthriver #comebackstory #thereishope

A slightly strange selfie dans la toilette....🤳🏿 But I am feeling a little unsettled today for some reason and have written a little bit about it 👆🏻👆🏻 link in bio. 
I’m sure we all have moments, days, weeks like this. I believe it’s part of the cycle of life - can’t be great all the time eh?
Anyway let me know how you’re doing today. .
