Taking to her Instagram, Chhavi posted a picture where she bravely flaunted her surgery mark. Along with it, she penned "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." ASLO READ: Chhavi Mittal gets CAUGHT as she grooves in hospital room before her breast cancer surgery
"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!" she added.
Chhavi Mittal wrote that 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 concluded with the hashtags #healing, #recovery.
