Today some beautiful roses to share
as a way of Saying Thank you for all your kindness and Best Wishes for the New Year.
One thing I want to talk about is warning signs.
We may run into them head on, or they may slowly creep up on us.
make you pause in your tracks,
We can face them or hide from them,
but they are there no matter whether we choose to face them or not..
About eight years ago my Dad had a five artery bypass.
He pulled through it, and then started walking,
He did it almost every day, I remember thinking how wonderful he was doing.
We all did, and then one day he was in a car accident(not his fault)
He had broken ribs etc....after Dad healed he never kept up with his
walking, of course he was busy on the farm, telling us all
he felt great, maybe a little tired,etc.
I often wonder what would have happened if he had kept walking.
It will be two years ago in May that Dad has passed away.
He believed he was Healthy.
he just was not healthy enough.
The other day I read a post on Anns blog
about her friend and it really made me think.
I have not been in control of my weight loss
and just because I have lost a few pound
does not make me healthy.
I am still morbidly obese.
and even though all my numbers come back good.
It just is not good enough.
So I am in control of what I eat,
how often I eat, where I eat.
I am in control of making better choices,
I am in control of seeing to it that I drink enough water,
I am in control of taking my medications on time,
I am in control of walking on my treadmill.
I am in control enough to know it should be a perscription
that I have to follow, and use as diligently as I take my medications.
I refocus on my goals. I choose to live a better life,
I control that for right now this is the most important
thing that I can do for myself, so I can get around easier,
breathe better, better circulation, more energy, more stamina,
So A New Year, A New Day,
and I try again, again,
This is my Year to Get It Right
We can do this together,
I am getting my journal out and recording everything,
food, water, exercise, mood, why I eat, etc.
I hope you come along for the ride,
oh and the treadmill
has been named by Patrick.
Mr. Giddy Up,
because Lord knows,
I just have to Giddy Up and Go.
So Thank you Patrick for your help,
I was pulling a blank on this one.
So if we can all just do one thing today to help ourselves,
is to start the new year by moving..
I hope you Have Your Very Best Day!
