October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Mom's are often the caregivers of the whole household and over time they lose themselves in the everyday shuffle of being a mom. We can tend to forget about ourselves and put our concerns last just due to a lack of time. 

So the fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month should help us to remember to take care of ourselves and our health should be a top priority. I'm not saying we have to run out and get a mammogram, because not all of us are even at that particular age. 

However, I am urging all women to take an assessment of their overall health and well being by scheduling that doctors appointment we've been putting off because we are always making them for the children and sometime just get tired of seeing the inside of a doctor's office. 

Take stock of the way you are eating and make a "diet" lifestyle plan for the whole family. This is a good time to start a workout regimen even if it is only 20 mins of time playing the Wii fitness. Walk to school in the morning or to pick up in the afternoon instead of driving if you can. 

Just make sure to write it all down and take the time to think about and care for yourself. You may even have to schedule that mammogram and don't forget about the self breast examine at home. Make it a point to say I'm going to take care of me. 

You can't be a Hip Mommy if you don't take care of yourself, so let Breast Cancer Awareness Month serve as the catalyst for overall health change.
