But as the new year rang in, so did Lyndsey’s mindset: “I started 2021 with specific goals to get my fitness back on track. I started to use my weights again most mornings at home and if I felt up to it I would get on the treadmill in the evening before my shower,” she said.
“I lost a lot of muscle mass following all of my treatment so I really wanted to build myself up again and feel strong. I hated what cancer had put me through and I wanted my fitness, my health and my life back!”
And after joining Battle Cancer, the world’s leading functional fitness fundraising competition, she saw huge improvements in her fitness and helped her find confidence in her body again which she didn’t think would be possible after everything it had been through.
“I feel so much better right now, I almost feel back to normal. My body has adjusted really well, I’m almost two years cancer free, I attend all of my maintenance CT scans and appointments. It’s early days, but so far so good,” she beamed.
