Whoa!  What’s a girl to do?  Over the last few weeks, I have had some of the most exciting experiences in my life and some of the worst.  I’ve been to Nashville to see the Steelers defeat the Titans and then the following weekend to Chicago to meet some of my Beachbody Business Partners.  Both were pretty awesome times and events that I will treasure for the rest of my life.  I’ve been pretty fortunate that I have been able to travel and enjoy life.  Not everyone gets to do that and I won’t take any of it for granted.  Sometimes though, life throws a curve ball at you.  You think everything is grand and than BAM! it hits you like a ton of bricks. 

Last week, my mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  More than likely, it’s stage 4.  Her Doctors feel pretty confident that is her diagnosis without all of the tests coming back in until the next week or so.  Stage 4 is the worst of all of the stages.  Until all of her testing is complete, we don’t really know what we are dealing with.  Her doctor has already started her on chemo and the 4 of us (my siblings) are putting plans into motion.  There is no history of breast cancer on this side of my family so it’s taken us by surprise.  Over the last few days, I have been educating myself on what, when, where this journey will take us.  Is it going to be easy?  Not at all!  I do know though that I have to continue living life as normal as I can.  My girls need the stability as do I.  I need to continue to eat right and exercise.  My mom would want that.

So, my goals for this week are to continue to participate in the Eat Clean Challenge and to get my exercise in.  I will continue to be the best wife, mom, sister, friend and coach that I can be.  Over the course of the next few weeks, months, years, etc. life may change but I have to remember to keep myself a priority.
