Last week the excitement resulted in my first mammogram. Don't be too jealous. However it wasn't nearly as bad as all the horror stories you hear. There is some considerable boob smashing, but they bounce right back and it is only a little uncomfortable.
I found a lump, which led to an appointment with my girly doc (aka gyno) and the scheduling of a mammogram and ultrasound. The lump ended up being a cyst surrounded by rigid breast tissue, so all is good. No more mammograms for a while unless I find something else.
I really wasn't worried and didn't want to worry anyone else, so I didn't tell anyone except my hubs. He is the one who insisted I get it checked out. And the two ladies who did the ultrasound said to tell him he is awesome to push me to get it checked. It is always better to be safe than sorry. So check your girls. And if anything ever changes or seems suspicious, get it checked.
I'll admit I'm not good about monthly self checks, but I'll probably be a little better about it now. I just found it by chance because my ta-tas had been a little sore so I was adjusting them in my bra and felt a hard spot on the one side.
Anyhow, that's the big excitement from last week. This week we're going for little less excitement. However I am in a constant state of runnerd happiness and excitement due to the Runnerd Photo-A-Day Challenge. I look forward to every single photo posted! If you aren't following along or participating (it's not too late), you are missing out. And not just because I finally got around to ordering the prizes that will go to several participants chosen by Random.org at the end of the challenge.
Here are just a few of my favorites so far:
You can follow @redheadrunning on Instagram or check out her blog HERE to see more of her awesome pics. I seriously can't wait for her to become Mrs. Spike! I absolutely adore this picture.
This one is by @enjoyingthecourse. Her pics are a lot of fun! And her four-legged friend is irresistible. Follow her on Instagram or Twitter.
Janice is my amazing real life friend and an incredible runner. Her posts always make me smile. However this one made me laugh. It is perfect for her! Follow her on Twitter @janni329 or Instagram @run_far.
Follow @jillconyers on Twitter or Instagram. Her 3:03 plank made my abs hurt just thinking about it.
There are so many more I could post. I will post a few more of my favorites later. And I'll get you caught up on mine.
In the meantime, you can see more on Twitter with the runnerdphotoaday hashtag (#). Or on Instagram by searching for the runnerdphotoaday tag.
