This morning I had to have an ultrasound on my boob. I found a small lump on my right side about a month ago and whilst the Dr assured me it was most probably a cyst related to my milk ducts, she sent me for an US to be sure. I wasn’t worried at first however as today drew closer, I have to say, I started to freak out slightly. I know I’m not in the age range for Breast Cancer, and I don’t have a family history however I’m not healthy and it seems, you hear more and more about younger women being diagnosed with the big C. I couldn’t sleep last night and I was so nervous at the appointment, I asked the nurse if it was possible to see the brain via a head ultrasound. (I get talky when nervous.) Luckily, all was fine and I left the appointment almost crying with relief.
In days gone by, I never worried about diseases or illness. I smoked all the cigarettes, drank all the wine and ate all the food. (That last one is still happening.) And I did it with gleeful abandon. I never thought about consequences. Maybe it’s getting older? Or having kids? I dunno. All I know is, I don’t want to get sick and leave.
I also still don’t know if you can ultrasound your brain. She wouldn’t answer my question.
After my health panic, I went and worked out for the first time in well over a year. I’m doing Monday fitness sessions with some of the girls and bubs from my Mother’s Group. It was really good and I am very surprisingly, not as unfit as I thought. I can still run, though I cannot do burpees. Nor do I really want to. I am currently shaking like a leaf though. I think my body might be in shock from all the movement.
With one week to go till 12WBT kicks off, I’m nervous. Very nervous. Michelle Bridges is frightening me in her pre-season videos. Her eyes are very poppy and intense. I’m scared that if I don’t lose weight, she’ll come to my house and laser beam me with those lookers.
Anyone else joining in on this round of 12WBT? How was your weekend?
