Think Healthy!

I am in my sixth year of living a healthy life style!! I celebrated my fifth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2016. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I am in my sixth year of living a healthy life style!! I celebrated my fifth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2016. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals. I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it! As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 3 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people! Even though I have conquered all of the above, I am faced with an even bigger "challenge". I lost my 26 year old son last November to Anorexia Nervosa. I am in the first year of my grieving process and it is very difficult. I need to stay healthy, but, it is not the first thing on my mind. And, since he passed away from counting calories, weighing himself on the scale 3 times per day, and eating halves of everything - it has been a real mental challenge for me. My favorite quotes... �All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything!��Gary W. Goldstein Goals are dreams with deadlines. ---Diana Scharf Hunt Take care of your body. It�s the only place you have to live. - Jim Rohn What you are doing is not nearly as important as how you feel about what you are doing. - Unknown There'll be two dates on your tombstone. And all your friends will read 'em. But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em. - Kevin Welch All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. �Walt Disney Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice and do so against all the risks confronting you.�Guru Singh No Matter How You Feel, Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, and Never Give Up - Unknown

I used to have low blood pressure when I was younger. Then I began to have spikes at doctor visits. I was told that if it goes up and down, I needed to be on medicine that would control it. I don't know much about it, really.

Have you ever looked into biofeedback. I tried it once and there was a noticeable drop in my blood pressure and heart rate. I don't remember where I was that I was told about it. You would think doctors would teach it, if it works. The problem is that we don't know when our blood pressure is high.

My sister has very high blood pressure, but it is due to her kidneys and not fixable. I didn't realize that the kidneys had so much to do with blood pressure.

They are certainly needful to keep so many other body processes in check, like potassium levels and they even have effects on the heart.

I take a Trulicity shot once a week for diabetes. It is an injectable pen.

I take a pill for my blood pressure and one for cholesterol. I have to take two Vitamin D gel caps, a coated aspirin, and two pills for calcium deficiency and one for my thyroid plus the weekly shot.

Praying about your blood pressure.

Yes, when the refrigerator leaked, I was so glad my husband was willing to get out of bed and help me to clean it up.
