Getting it Together

Sunday, September 06, 2009

This week it was like a light bulb went on. I have been doing strength training with my youngest daughter and just seem to be eating less & healthier.Exercising on my own. Cardio exercsing is still a little slow. On the down side, my doctor increased my blood pressure medication. She assured me, that if I loose weight & feel better maybe it can be decreased. I think I'm in denial about that. Doing these changes is making a difference in how I feel. I hope I am finally on my way to change.

    Go for it! If you've just been prescribed for the first time, it's the onset (and that's just my opinion). I truly believe that if we eat right, exercise, maintain a healthy attitude, that our WHOLE BODY reflects that. The meds are a warning. Pay attention! Now you have the choice and the opportunity to reverse it. IT'S ALL UP TO YOU! You can do it.

    It worked for me---I could not stand the side effects of bp meds, so doc said if I exercised and lost weight I would probably not need it---and he was right. Actually, I think my bp is now back on the low side as I get cold again easily which I use to do. Good for you on doing those strength exercises---the cardio will come---just keep plugging.

    IT WILL TAKE TIME FOR THE CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE, REMEMBER IT TOOK YOU A LONG TIME TO GET UNHEALTHY, SO IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO GET HEALTHY TO THE POINT OF OFF MEDS, BUT I DO KNOW WHERE YOUARE COMING FROM. I AM GLAD YOU STRENGTH TRAINING IS DOING GOOD, THAT BUILDS MUSCLE WHICH ACTUALLY BURNS MORE CALORIES WHEN HEALTHY MUSCLE... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, THE REWARDS, ARE AMAZING !!! emoticon
