The last, almost 2 weeks, have been pretty successful since I have temporally changed my focus from running to more cardio & weight training. Picking either a day to work on upper body, a day of lower body and a day of cardio with a bit of ab training on those days. I had Friday and Saturday as my rest days last week. Sunday was an hour of elliptical at BSU. Monday was legs. Today was elliptical.

Oh, man, I have felt that I have needed to move and challenge my body by doing more then the same running form for miles and miles and miles. I was so sore last week after the split lunge/squat thingies that I hurt for 3 days after. And I only did 2 or 3 sets of 10-12 each. I don’t remember how many I did, but that’s my standard set/rep goal for weight training.

Either way, whatever they are called, I felt it in my glutes and hammys for 3 days. 3 freaking days!
Today, I was tired. 6 hours of sleep for some strange reason, and I just ellipticaled it out while watching Wings on TV for a half hour. Despite the show being 20 years old, I love it. So funny!
When I got done with today’s workout, I did something even more important to my health.
I made an appointment for a mammogram that I have put off for about 3-4 years.
Thanks to FitApproach, and Self Magazine, I got the guilty nudge I needed to call my doctor. I need a mammogram for an issue I have. I don’t want to go into details, but things are not normal and have gotten worse over the last couple of months. My doctor checked me out, gave me a referral AND an appointment for a mammogram 3-4 years ago, but I made excuses for not going in. Even though I have insurance and no excuses for not going in other then being scared, I didn’t go to my mammogram appointment. I don’t have a history of any cancer in my family, but as we all know, we don’t have to have a family history of something to have a current health problem.
No excuses today. I made the appointment. I am going to get my mammogram.
I Sweat Pink and now I Live Pink.
What was your workout today? Have you ever had a mammogram? What are you doing to take care of your health?
