I am about to get real honest right now. Being a woman is high maintenance. Truly. I am not talking about shoes, clothing, accessories, make-up or even the monthly that seems to just show up whenever it feels like to control my body(still a little bitter—are we). I am talking about screenings and making sure my body is firing on all cylinders and I have all the knowledge of how my body is functioning. Sure, that may have been an over-rated statement considering men have screenings as well that they should be keeping up to date on but SHEESH!!! Keeping this ‘ol body up to date is starting to prove to be another full time activity as I crept up and am now dominating (ha! Right…..) my thirty’s.
I started to do some research about things I should be doing as a woman my age to determine if I need a little extra TLC for this broad. Below are some things that may be helpful for the dirty thirty women in order to identify if you are in need as well. I decided to also take it one step further and look at the year ahead (those come fast) to identify what I should be preparing for.
If you are anything like me, you are TERRIBLE at calling the doctor to make appointments and you probably dread carving out the time from the normal routine to go. Don’t delay. I have made it kind of a yearly thing to call in January, shortly after everyone settles in from the New Year and make the appointments, and then I can plan life in the next few months ahead accordingly. Take care of your vessel. You are only given one.
