BadASS Heath Insurance - My BadASS Life VLOG #9 - 12-2-23
Today, I discuss the challenges and pitfalls of shopping for health insurance as a semi-retired business owner who left corporate America and who is between retirement and Medicare as well as being a a cancer survivor with a pre-existing condition! Whether it’s a plan in the ACA marketplace, a self-employed/employer plan or and private insurance, it’s a marathon of mental gymnastics that would put even the most tech and HR savvy person in last place!

BadASS Burning - My BadASS Life VLOG #7 - 11-19-23
Today I released #Cancer to the wind, forever! I took the box of all the cancer-related documents from the last two years—keep in mind many documents were already electronic, so this is just a portion of them—and burned them! It felt amazing and cathartic to not only perform this ceremonial burning, but to also share this milestone with you! At the end I say some words about releasing the smoke to be transformed into good health for all. This is loosely based on the practice of TongLen, a Tibetan Buddhist practice to help heal suffering, both your own suffering and the suffering of others.(zenfulspirit) How do you release your cancer demons? Thank you for your continued love and support of my journey! These videos will appear on Instagram, Facebook, our Vimeo Channel and YouTube.

BadASS Talks to Cancer - My BadASS Life VLOG #6 - 11-12-23
Many people have asked me how I was able to take the approach that I did throughout treatment for stage 3b rectal cancer and beyond I often think it's the way I talked to cancer that really helped me stay positive most of the time (we all have our days). So today I discuss some of the ways that I spoke to cancer. One really important thing I did was I always believed that my "Diagnosis was not my Prognosis!" Just because a statistic exists doesn't mean that you may not be the one to change it for the better, and make it a new statistic for the next round of survivors to be hopeful. I realize my perspective may be unique in some circles. Please understand that I am not telling anyone else HOW to do cancer in this VLOG. I'm simply sharing what worked for me and what I believed for me. I also feel strongly that the medical intervention I received helped save my life. What I talk about here is my mind and spirit and their connection to my body. I'd love to read what worked for you! ⬇️ You can find me at MyBadASS.Life or @CCnDoc on social media! https://linktr.ee/ccndoc
The Real Life Of A Cancer Survivor Statistically Speaking - My BadASS Life
✍️NEW BLOG POST! ✍️ “BadASS Statistics: Marking my 2-year Cancerversary with Gratitude and EXHAUSTION!” Read Now at MyBadASS.Life Dedicated to my fellow badasses! This week I marked 2 years since being diagnosed with stage 3b rectal cancer (NOV 2021), and as you saw in a recent My BadASS Life VLOG, the last couple of weeks have been a roller coaster ride of emotions, mental and physical exhaustion. I’ve come to the realization that surviving cancer is just the beginning: that recovery after remission takes a very long time, and that staying physically and mentally healthy after cancer can be just as daunting as fighting the cancer itself! As of today, I am back on the upswing of gratitude, good thoughts and positive vibes, but in order to put things into perspective, I decided it would be “interesting” to add up the sum total number of medical, mental health and integrative medicine appointments that I have had in the last two years since being diagnosed (including those leading up to diagnosis, which was a process in itself). Interesting is an understatement. I was shocked! What shocked you the most? *Details for stats can be found in the full blog post.
BadASS Re-Entry - My BadASS Life VLOG #5 — 11/7/23
Shocking Fact: Did you that 1 in 50 people in the world are immunocompromised due to illness or medication? (Economist Impact). To put that in perspective, about 1 in 24 people will get colorectal cancer and it is currently the #2 cancer killer in the world, predicted to be #1 by 2030. Let’s talk re-entry back into the world since both of the “C-words” made a crash landing into our lives! We (Doc and I) went directly from Covid to Cancer, so life for us has been a little different than for most people. Today’s conversation is not just for #CancerSurvivors, it’s for everyone who is willing to listen to one person’s perspective on what it’s like to integrate back into a world full of GERMS (and opinions) after walking in the shoes of the #immunocompromised. I’ve sacrificed two years of my life to be well, I’d rather wrestle an alligator than to be sick again in any way, shape or form! Everyone person’s journey is their own, I’m advocating for compassion and understanding for cancer survivors and their unique perspective. How are you re-entering life after Covid and Cancer?
CC Loves Therma Pools - An Honest Review - My BadASS Life
About the time I got diagnosed with stage 3b rectal cancer we bought a 4EZPools therma pool! We had one of their pools previously and loved it, but had never considered a therma pool (therapy pool) before. In this video I share my therma pool story and explain why I really believe that this pool helped literally SAVE MY ASS! Thanks to Simon and Hank for all of your help and support during our build out!

Season 2 - Episode 8 - How to Communicate Better with Your Partner
NEW PODCAST EPISODE! CCnDoc Talk 🎤 - Season 2 - Episode 8 - How to Communicate Better with Your Partner We’re Back! We took a little break in July to enJOY our summer! Now we’re back with renewed energy and NEW episodes! Ever wonder how to communicate better with your partner? Especially when one or both of you have been in heavy concentration mode (doing your own thing), and you come back together, only to find yourselves disconnected emotionally. You know the drill, something of interest sucks you in and the seconds turn into minutes. Then hours later your partner is balancing on a delicate teeter-totter, not knowing if you are open to being interrupted, if you’re going to surface physically while still in your head, or if your heart will be surfacing as well. If you’re still stuck in your head, how best can and should your partner communicate with you to discuss important daily logistics such as “Who’s cooking dinner?”, “Who’s picking up the kids?”, “Who’s in charge of happy hour?” or “Are we spending any quality time together today?” Although we don’t have a grandiose answer to these questions, listen to how we navigate the discussion of this topic of being in and then emerging from hyper-focused concentration mode on a regular basis!

CC's Colonoscopy Party 2023 - My BadASS Life
Welcome to #MyBadASSLife (‿!‿) This week isn’t just a holiday week (JUL 4), it’s #Colonoscopy week for me! That means I’m also reminding YOU to get yer butts checked � and inviting you to tag along with me this week! Friday will be my 1st colonoscopy since a) A colonoscopy diagnosed me with stage 3b #RectalCancer in November 2021, b) My first since ending cancer treatment and being in remission, c) Also my first since having my sigmoid colon and all but a teeny tiny bit of my rectum removed last June! I’m documenting this experience to convince you that colonoscopies are really NO BIG DEAL! Especially if you don’t have symptoms and you are getting them regularly starting at age 45 (earlier if you have a family history and symptoms). Colonoscopy is still the single best way to prevent and identify early #ColorectalCancer! Trust me, a colonoscopy is WAY EASIER and CHEAPER than cancer treatment! Just ask my Sassy Semicolon!

CCnDoc Talk - Season 2 - Episode 5 - Hiking Tips and Trail Etiquette
First, some handy hiking tips for all hikers! And, as we hike our way through Arizona and New Mexico on our #UnexpectedRoadtrip (check it out on our social media @CCnDoc), we continue to be surprised, amazed and even dumbfounded at some of the folks we are sharing the trail with. We are admittedly old-school hikers, taught by an even older-school hiker, the etiquette of the trail. Is there such a thing? YES! Further, we live in Colorado where Leave No Trace is a very big deal. Suffice it to say there is a new breed of hiker out there, and they're challenging us!

If you're like us it's been since we transferred our analog address books to our candy bar phones 20 years ago! Recently Doc set out to go through her phone contacts and get rid of some annoying duplicates that were created by the rivalry between enterprise corporate software and her ios. She had some revelations about herself then and now, and in scaling her contacts from 14,000 to 1400, she had to make some decisions as well as say some goodbyes. Tune in to hear her insights!

CCnDoc Talk - Season 2 - Episode 3 - The Mindfuck of Body Image and Weight
CCnDoc Talk - Season 2 - Episode 3 - The Mindfuck of Body Image and Weight With such strong cultural influences, when it comes to our health, what really matters and what should we be focusing on? This podcast delves into our psyches and exposes unhealthy thoughts and behaviors around weight and body image. It’s time we stop self-shaming and shaming others based on unrealistic and cookie-cutter standards! Where do these crazy ideas come from? When CC was feeling her best the scale was up but she had a tumor! They told her not to lose weight during cancer treatment, so she lost 40 pounds! Not on purpose obviously. But, having gone up and down in weight over the years, and finally giving up on the number a few years before; this was quite the mindfuck! So now what happens? Many of us are guilty of watching the scoreboard instead of the game, in this case, watching the scale instead of our life. The numbers on the scale are only one small indicator of good health. We need to be aware of all of the indicators, this is why watching the scale is a mindfuck. Even though Doc weighs more than people would think, she has a reputation as someone who can eat anything she wants and stay slender. But behind the scenes one could say she has an unhealthy relationship with the scale, weighing in each day to make sure the numbers are within her personal acceptable range. When the numbers go up, she’s harder on herself than she should be. She always says she does not want to buy a new wardrobe, which begs the question, is it about money or weight? Of course, it's important to be healthy! It's also important to not feel deprived or to shame yourself into "good behavior". How do we (all) change the way we see ourselves and be in tune enough with our bodies to listen to what they truly need and want on a day-to-day basis, and not be influenced by unrealistic archetypes? #mindfuck #bodyimage #weightloss #selfesteem #SelfLove #Mindfulness #psychology #eatingdisorders #skinnybitch #listentoyourbody #bodytalk #CancerTreatment #weightgain #LifestylePodcast #LifeAfterCancer #BodyForLife #RectalCancerSurvivor #ColorectalCancer #MyBadASSLife #BadASSLiving #CCnDoc �♀️#Over50Influencers #UnapologeticallyEclectic #DynamicDuo ��#CCnDocTalkPodcast � #LiveBold If you're not already following us @CCnDoc on social media, we welcome you to join us!

CCnDoc Talk - Season 2 - Episode 2 - The Cancer Hangover - Life After Cancer (and other major li...
WAIT!!! Before you run off thinking this episode doesn’t apply to you, think again! The Cancer Hangover is a metaphor for any major life event, illness or what we call in our book “Courageous Money”, A Life Falls Event. Any event that causes upheaval or major transition in your life qualifies for “hangover” status if you are coming out of the fog and re-adjusting to a new reality! February 4th was World Cancer Day and we thought it a perfect time to talk about what life after cancer in our household is looking like. Yes, those who are fortunate to be cancer free after their battles have everything to be grateful for, but it doesn’t mean there isn’t sometimes an adjustment period afterward. We call it the “Bewilderment Zone.” A “Where do we go from here?” kind of place where you’re striving to get a foothold on what in many cases is a new, yet undefined you! If you are in a partnership, this can be even more interesting. Today we are not discussing so much the physical aspects of adjusting to life after cancer because everyone’s cancer journey is different. For instance in CC’s case, lots of extra trips to the bathroom in a day! But rather the emotional aspects. The things that are harder to see but just as important to sort out so you can live bold!

CCnDoc Talk - Season 2 - Episode 1 - Mindfulness Circle - New Year New You
CCnDoc Talk - Season 2 - Episode 1 - Mindfulness Circle: New Year! New You! Hello and welcome to Season 2 of CCnDoc Talk! A fitting start to the new year and our new season, this podcast focuses on a tool that we call the Mindfulness Circle, which we created after taking a couples course through Insight Timer (our favorite meditation app). In the course they discussed one version of the Mindfulness Triangle, but true to form that didn’t work for us so we created our own tool! LOL There is no better time than the start of a new year to manifest new habits and practices for a better you! We discuss how to use the tool and how it can apply to different areas of your life from work to personal goals as well as “coupleness” (mindful couples) and a variety of circumstances from positive to stressful. Check out the “Freebies” section at our LINK IN BIO for a companion guide to this podcast and a link to your FREE @InsightTimer membership!
