Miscellany Monday

1. I am so sore. 10 miles least, it hurts me! I wasn't fast...but I finished and I remember thinking there was no way I'd ever be doing that kind of mileage. We are setting our sights on this next year. I'm glad I have over a year to prepare...and train better. 

2. Pretty sure I'm ready for the warmer weather only because I hope it means no more least more than a month break. Two out of the three boys have yucky noses now, and the third will be joining them soon I'm sure. I'm not a fan of the hot weather...I enjoy 60-70 degrees with some 80 degree days and so Fall and Spring are my favorites.

3. Do you remember this story? Well, she is going to be my final guest post in the coming week or two and I'm excited for you to hear about where her journey has taken her since I wrote last!

4. That is all I have today. Very exciting. I will be finishing my thoughts on Part 2 of How to Breastfeed Twins this week (here is Part 1)

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!
