Hello to all my SparkFriends. I am still on my journey 4Life. Being it's 4Life it has lots of changes going on. I am still learning a lot about weight lifting and what works and does not works for me mentally and physically. My body is changing in ways that have surprised me.
I am also experiencing a bump in the road.
In the last few weeks, I have started to experience something labeled as exertion headaches. They only come on when I lift at my heaviest.
The headaches have caused a spike in my blood pressure. Doctor put me back on blood pressure medication for the next 90 days. I also have an up coming CT Scan of the brain in June. Why so for off??? Just my personal choice. In the mean time I have to lift wise and listen to my body. Dr didn't band me from lifting just told me to use my own discretion. Those of you who already know me....know I STILL REFUSE TO BE DEFEATED, but I will be WISE. Being I want to LIFT4LIFE, I know I will have to use wisdom. Planning to start my next 90 Days of Body Beast Round 3.
Is Lifting my #1.....by all means NO....it's #3. My Lord #1 and my FAMILY #2. My Lord makes ALL things possible for me to do. My family makes doing what I do worth the hard work.
You all know the love I have for my bodyguards.
And this is my survival crew.
I hope all of you are continuing to make health a life style change. See you again soon.
