gave a glimpse of her breast cancer
in a recent post. The actress hit the gym a few days post her surgery and shared her experience.
She 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!”
Chhavi added, “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”
Earlier, Chhavi shared a motivating post for fans asking them to keep working towards their goals. The actress who is taking baby steps toward healing gave her own example and suggested that one should never stop working towards their dreams. Sharing a picture, Chhavi wrote, “You will only receive what you work towards. So pause, introspect, analyse… what have you been working for? Happiness? Success? Fitness? Weight loss? Victories? That dream house? That dream job? Money? Or have you been working towards getting sympathy, pity, grief? Think. And don’t tell me. Just tell yourself. I’m working towards healing… abs that’s what I’m receiving.”
Chhavi has been taking everyone through her breast cancer surviving journey and it is simply inspiring. She underwent the surgery on April 25 and is slowly recovering back to normalcy. She has also resumed work. While her physiotherapy continues, she is getting back to her shoots and she shared a glimpse in a video.
