Both Sarah and Julia avoided drinking wine this week and found great results, especially in sleeping. And they both got up at 5am every day.
Shout-out to the podcast Julia loves called You Must Remember This. Helps keep her morning walks that much more interesting.
It was the first week of school for Julia’s daughter and Sarah’s youngest son, and we chat about it went. And we reflect on what school was like for us, back in Hawaii.
Bible Study -Chapter 13 – Creating Breast Health from the Wisdom of Menopause by the Christianne Northrup
We’ve had a love-hate relationship with our breasts our whole lives. We talk about how Breast cancer has touched our lives: Sarah’s Mother and Grandmother died of breast cancer and one of her Aunt’s worked in breast cancer research for 20 years.
We discuss how and whether attitude can affect your health. Sarah talks about a time in her life when she was very wrapped up in her kids’ life and the school PTA and her own health suffered. She really put herself last. They both talk about how important it is to find something in life that gives you joy and to make time for it.
We discuss how often to check in with ourselves about our plans. Annually on one’s birthday is a great one, but you can add in the equinoxes and solstices. Mammograms are discussed, as they are in the book, along with breast self-exams. We advocate touching your breasts. In private. (affiliate link)
