#boobs

I haven’t had this much attention on my boobs since I was a freshman in college. Let me explain…. When I packed on my freshman 15, it went right to my boobs.  When I came back to my home town, word got around that I got a boob job. To be fair, it was Orange County, and I was very blond.

Fast forward to 23 years later, in early October,  going to the OB for my annual fun day with a side of speculum. The doc let out a “OH!” (code for I found a lump). No big deal, I have had one before, those mammogram places have chocolate! I am good.

Mammogram came back with not 1, but 2 suspicious “distortions” which needed 2 biopsies. I freak out, cry, plan my funeral and come back to my senses. First biopsy was awful! It was loud, and I had to stand up, while  they put a needle in my boob. I know, TMI. Sorry. But I did figure out that I want “Come Up To The House” by Tom Waits at my funeral.

So, fast forward past months, 15 mamograms, MRI’s andbbbra2 3 more biopsies, where they kept missing the spots, and then had to surgically open up my fun bag to pull out what ever was in there.

It’s been a long stressful few months, and I haven’t been a good friend, coach or family person. But here is the kicker, everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, has been so so so awesome and wonderful. So, this is just a thank you letter to you for being so awesome, even if you had no idea, you were still there. I hated telling people, it’s such a downer, and I had no answers. No books are written on the breast limbo waiting game.

The last test results just came back as benign, and I thought they said, beignets….both words I love and they are both so so sweet.

The holidays are here in full force. And I want to have a good time, and I want YOU to

I am ho ho so excited to announce our January Jump Start Challenge. It’s a fully balanced program to get your mojo and body back! We’ll provide you with activity actions every day! And we got a amazing food challenge coach, KIM! I found Kim through my friend, Kelly who has transformed since working with Kim. When I talked to Kim, I knew she was a great fit for RE. Fun, accessible and knows her stuff!! She’ll provide: meal plans, shopping lists, and a supportive group with AWESOME PRIZES! I am doing this with YOU!

“Kim puts the focus on healthy eating and correct portion size. I felt great about making good choices and cooking real food. I lost weight and gained energy and a new way of thinking about food that has stuck with me well beyond the weeks of the program.” Kelly Howard

Wednesday Wisdom: You’ve Got This.

Whatever “it” is. Starting to run, changing jobs, getting healthy, falling in love, making a leap.

And you are waiting for someone to tell you that you can do it,  that it’s going to be o.k., or just give you permission.

Let me be the one to officially say, “You can do this. I am not sure it’s going to be o.k., no one does. And you don’t need permission.”

You’ve got this. #buttslap
