New Delhi: Popular TV actress Chhavi Mittal underwent a long six-hour breast cancer surgery last month and updated fans about her health. After sharing inspiring posts, she yet again proved to be a braveheart as she hit the gym and posted a picture of her surgery scar along with a heartwarming note.
The actress took to Instagram and wrote: I did the unthinkable! I went to the gym today. I couldn’t use my right hand, so I didn’t. Couldn’t lift weights, so I didn’t. Couldn’t do anything strenuous, so I didn’t. But what I chose to concentrate on is what I COULD do rather than what I couldn’t. I could do squats, lunges, Bulgarian split squats, calf raises, single leg squats and sumo squats!!! That’s quite enough isn’t it? No reason to complain at all! In fact I even got to sport my scar on the armpit while at it… and my physiotherapist was super proud of me.. as am I!
What I believe is, you can’t be strong physically without being strong mentally. So while I was jittery to take this step today, I gave myself a few minutes to remind myself of my mental strength. After all, you can’t be mindful without using your mind, can you? #healing #postop #postsurgery #breastcancer #recovery #healingfromwithin #chhavimittal #gymfreak #gym #gymtime #legday
