I am a big fan of this Oscar-winning actress through the years. Last May 2013, I wrote a blog post about her as a woman being undergone in a double mastectomy to prevent breast cancer entitled Angelina Jolie, Double Mastectomy

Her braveness to tell publicly about it is very inspiring. Yesterday, March 24, 2015, She revealed another choice she made to her life that she has written in her column in The New York Times, The Opinion Page. It was entitled Angelina Jolie Pitt: Diary of a Surgery. 

She wanted every woman at risk to know about their options. She preferred to have preventive surgery and the removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes which her plan as it was less complex surgery the mastectomy. However, the effects are more severe because it can put a woman into forced menopause. 

She said, she did not do it because she carries the BRCA1 gene mutation and wanted other women to hear it. Instead, there are options. 

She also said and I quote:

"I know my children will never have to say, Mom died of ovarian cancer."
- Angelina Jolie Pitt

Last week, probably March 17, she had the procedure called a laparoscopic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. 

You can read more of her stories here.

In my own humble opinion, every women as choice of what things to do in our personal body. I know for sure that every time we make decisions we always consider our family. We sometimes made decisions not only for our own good but to extend our life to be with our love ones.  Most importantly, do not forget to pray ans ask  the highest above guidance.

Seeking advice and learning the options before making decision is the first thing to do. We can always consult doctors who are more knowledgeable about this field and from there think about the options. 

What is Laparoscopic Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy?

This is a surgery where your doctor uses a thin, lighted camera and small
surgical tool placed through a small (1/2 inch) incision usually in the belly
button, to remove both of your ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Read more about this procedure here.

Stay healthy and get beautified!

Working full-time and being an active mom to my kid was very tough. However, managing your time from busy schedules makes everything properly done. Stress is one of the biggest problems that we always encounter but having stress is not a hindrance to stop having a healthy lifestyle. 

Last March 20, 2015, I manage to attend a Fitness Party where I really enjoyed the Zumba and yoga session. Yummy Diet host a successful event by gathering people who love to learn and have a healthy diet and lifestyle. 

It was an advantage for me as a blogger to be part of this event, and I would say that I really appreciate the exercises, booths, freebies and of course the goody bags coming from Gold Press Juicing Co. and Yummy Diet's food that they prepared for us.

Bloggers and wellness enthusiast enjoying the Zumba session and dance the beat of music. Take note that the Zumba has not only a single set, but we had a two sets of it. It will be more sweat to give in while having a relaxing, smooth and slow drill during the Yoga session. 

As I mention a while ago, the food that Yummy Diet prepared was really good not only good but healthy. They served us the following with the corresponding number of calories; 

Tomato, Basil & Mozzarella: 118 Calories/piece
Yummy Diet Kitchen’s Homemade Cheese Pimiento on Whole Wheat Crackers: 45.5 Calories/piece
Baked Coconut Shrimp w/ Orange Dipping Sauce: 76 Calories/2 Shrimps
Tuna-Stuffed Sweet Peppers: 40 Calories/piece
Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap: 153 Calories/piece
Yummy Diet Kitchen’s Signature Egg Muffin: 133 Calories/piece

For the GoldPress Juicing Co. drink they served that day the following:

Green Machine: Celery, Cucumber, Pineapple, Apple, Spinach
Green Glean: Cucumber, Pineapple, Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, Apple
Real Red: Carrot, Red Beet, Lemon, Grapes, Cucumber, Mint
Ruby Red: Red Beet, Apple, Watermelon
Red Ahead: Carrot, Turnip, Pineapple, Romaine Lettuce, Apple, Orange, Red Beet
Orange Gilt II: Pineapple, Orange, Grapefruit

The Baked Coconut Shrimp with orange dipping sauce and their signature muffin is so loved while the Orange Gilt II was in the top of my favorites when it comes to drinks.

The Yummy Diet Fitness Party will not be possible without the following sponsors;

Who doesn't love a little fun in the sun? The beach can be a perfect way to spend the day and get some summer moments with your loved ones. Summer means sun, shorts, sandals, bathing suits, and bronzed skin. But with beach hair and shorter hemlines comes the dangers that not only instigate the probability of skin cancer, but the aging process as well. Sun exposure is, essentially, subjecting yourself to sun damage – but in the same note, avoiding the outdoors altogether is both impractical and nearly impossible.
