Shannen Doherty has undergone a lifestyle overhaul as she continues to battle cancer.

The BH90210 actress was diagnosed with stage four cancer a year ago and went public with the news back in January, having previously conquered breast cancer.

However, Shannen took to Instagram on Saturday to let her followers know that she is focused on remaining positive.

Sharing snaps of her working out with pals, model Anne Marie Kortright and personal trainer Kira Stokes, she penned: "After a year of dealing with cancer coming back and other stresses, I'm back at it.

"Taking care of myself and embracing every day. It's not always easy. I have days I'm depressed or just plain lazy. But I push thru (sic) with the help of friends."

Shannen credited Anne Marie with motivating her and passing along key nutritional information, explaining that she "has been relentless in getting me to hike and learning new ways to cook that feed my soul as well as my tummy but in a very healthy way."

"It's been a productive great week," the 48-year-old concluded. "I feel better. My skin is alive and so am I."

Shannen was first diagnosed with cancer in March 2015. She underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation as part of her treatment.
