For over 25 years now I have been able to manage my weight pretty good. I decided that with a family history of heart conditions, blood pressure issues, and many other ailments…I had better get a grip on my health. I feel that since my mental health was fairly stable, I had a good chance. My brothers seem to have too many health issues lately. I do not want to take medications, unless it is a matter of life and death.
I have maintained a balanced diet. This is not to say that I do not “cheat” every once in a while! I manage to get in walking on a daily basis. I purposely park far from any entrance to where I am going. I use light weights on a regular basis. I love stretching. I embrace yoga and meditation.
I hope you all have a system that works for you. Without our physical and mental health in tact, what we can achieve is limited. Believe in yourself. Take charge of your life. Look ahead, not back.
Have a great summer. I will be around.
Believe in Yourself;
