I don’t know Loriana Hernandez personally. I know of her through my sister, and, over this past year, have been following her personal journey to fight leukemia. She is the epitome of “Feed Your Good Dog”.
Loriana is a journalist and former news anchor for Good Day Austin, KTBC Fox 7. She is using her gifts as such to educate the rest of us about life with cancer, and how to fight back. Foremost, as one quickly sees from comments to her Facebook posts, Loriana is a devoted mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend.
Following is Loriana’s Facebook post today where she responds to the question “How can we help?”. Her answer is the 100 Day Challenge, wherein Loriana challenges us to “100 days of new life” to correspond with “100 days of HER new life” which begins on, October 29, Day 1 of her bone marrow transplant. The 100 Day Challenge will motivate Loriana to stay strong during the arduous bone marrow transplant process and the rest of us to stay on track to better health.
I’m in . . . she had me at “how we can help”. What about you? Read on for Loriana’s thoughts on the 100 Day Challenge and how to participate.
September 30, 2014, Loriana Hernandez – 100 Day Challenge – Facebook Post
Good morning everyone!!
You asked how you can help. Here’s an idea.
Have you been putting off getting to the gym? Not motivated to lose the extra weight you need to be healthy ? Or just want to feel better and eat clean?
Why not make my first 100 days of MY NEW LIFE after my bone marrow transplant the first 100 days of YOUR new life?!! Get off the blood pressure meds, cholesterol meds, get yourself out of the pre-diabetic/diabetic danger zone. You know health and fitness are my passion and nothing would make me happier than to see more good come out of this.
The first 100 days are critical and are hell. When you are “too tired” to get up out of bed and workout let my story and pain be your motivation. You can post your success stories and it will bring happy tears and keep me going. I don’t want to let you guys down either so you will all keep me strong. I can’t give up so you can’t give up.
This all started after Aly Frisque Kerr and I spoke and she needed motivation and we came up with the 100 day challenge AND all night I thought “hey why can’t we challenge everyone?”
Aly will be blogging. She knows she can’t give up.
What do you think ? Want to join Aly?
Aly’s 100 day challenge starts DAY 1 of my transplant. Oct 29th. So you have time to throw out all that bad food. Haha.
Share and Spread the word. Let’s see how many people we can take the #100DayChallenge
And, remember … Feed Your Good Dog so your good dog always wins!
