New Delhi:

TV actor Chhavi Mittal, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, has been documenting her journey of healing on her Instagram – one post at a time. In her latest entry, the actress writes about doing the “unthinkable” – hitting the gym. An excerpt from her post read: “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.” The actress listed all the drills she carried out. She wrote: “I could do squats, lunges, Bulgarian split squats, calf raises, single leg squats and sumo squats! That’s quite enough isn’t it?”

Chhavi Mittal wrote that she had “no reason to complain at all” and added, “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.” She wrote about how her mental strength helped her accomplish the task. “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?,” Chhavi Mittal wrote, signing off with the hashtags #healing.
