Country Heat Day “30”- Live Like You Were Dying

So today is supposed to be day 30. Last week was our annual trip to Oahu and I did NOT stick to containers. I’ll probably add a week of country heat before the Beachbody Health Bet challenge that starts Monday. 

Last week was fun and my mini-me did a lot of the dances with me. 


On Friday morning, I got a call at 3:30 and another at 4:40 from my friend at work who had just done my mammogram 2 weeks ago. The backstory is that I’m 35 with a good family history of breast cancer so they did my baseline mammo early. I half expected something to show up but they said it was fine. Now the doc did a second read and could I come in Monday for additional views and maybe an ultrasound. 😳

I lasted 2 hours holding it in, then had to tell E. Thoughts like “what if this is my last trip?” and “how would I play with the girls differently if it is cancer?”ran through my head. Also thoughts like, “it’s going to be ok. Our team will take care of it, and you might get implants for your trouble!” 😂

I’m glad to report that the follow up views came back fine and I don’t have to come back for 5 years. 

I wanted to hold on to that perspective though. If I did have limited time what would I do differently?
