…but you didn’t possibly think I was talking about birth control pills did you? *hollers* FYI this baby shop is shut down…possibly indefinitely at this point. I’ll let you know if plans change.
Seriously though, the pills I speak of are for my high blood pressure. Before you start chastising me and throwing me the digital mean mug, lets just say I take them, but in a very sporadic manner. I have removed salt, red meat and other naggy culprits that contain salt yet my number is still on the high side and I know its because I need to exercise and be diligent about taking my medicine. Heredity much?
I am supposed to take them twice a day, unfortunately I probably take one every two days or so. I knooooow. Please don’t judge me. I don’t like taking them because they make me groggy, and I know I should probably speak with the doctor about changing my dosage or the medicine itself but I don’t want to chance the side effects of starting a new medicine which for me is nearly a week of awful headaches.
I bring this here because it is certainly time for me to start taking my health more seriously. Daily I read so many of your blogs that offer great information on how to get and stay fit, how to eat healthy and are just overall encouraging as I follow along on your journey and those you spotlight who have made lifestyle changes to be more health conscious.
Another challenge is I’m skinny. A week of cardio may drop me 10 pounds and when you are teetering at 135….I’m not interested. I’m one of those girls that has always wanted hips and booty so I am trying to hold on to the very little that I do have…read none.
So begins my process of researching the things that I need to be eating that will help me maintain a healthy weight while exercising. Today begins the day I set the timer on my phone to go off and remind me to take my medicine. Today I will call the Dr. and make my 6 month blood pressure check appointment
that I have been putting off for two months. Today is the day I take the reins of my health and go about getting healthy. Today I will make the promise to live my best life mentally and physically not just for myself but for my family. Today is the day I come after Kelly Rowland and her skinny thickness!! YES…Today is the day!!!!
Somebody hold me accountable…Okay?!
Where my cheerleaders at?!! Who needs to join me on this quest? Speak up…cyber home girls uplift and encourage and turn into drill sergeants if necessary….
