Distracted, but not forgotten. I will post again soon!

I just wanted to update the blog to let regular readers know that there will be some great information posted soon! It's been a crazy time with a distraction that makes it incredibly difficult to focus my thoughts. I have great things to write about, but I can't seem to sit down and type them out.

Not too long ago, I wrote about a fellow blogger and her very informative post about Inflammatory Breast Cancer. The information motivated me to finally call my Doctor to get in for an exam. I've had a lump since I started breastfeeding. When I weaned my son almost 8 months ago, it was still there. I thought it would go away and it never did. I started to worry when it became increasingly tender.

I had to wait three weeks to finally get in to see a Doctor (thanks insurance company!) and had my exam on Friday. There is something there and I will get further testing (hopefully this week) to determine the diagnosis. My Doctor is confident that it's not cancer, but now I'm hearing horror stories from people who've been told the same thing. Thus, the lack of posting here.

In the meantime, Whymommy nominated those women who have read her post and made the decision to get checked out for the Rockin' Girl Blogger Award.

I'm thankful for her post because without it, I probably would have continued ignoring the lump for quite some time. I hope the re-posting of her information on here was helpful to other women and inspired them to take action.

I'm positive the outcome will be nothing to worry about but until I get an official answer, I'm afraid my thoughts will be elsewhere. However when I get the all clear, stay tuned for some very useful tips and advice on how to achieve your fitness goal!
