Healthy Living

Healthy Living encompasses many ideas. Not just what we eat but when we eat, where we do it and how. Are we getting enough rest or taking time to be quiet during the day? In a twenty-four hour day, it is amazing that we, as women, are usually unable to take a moment out for ourselves. Sometimes it can be as simple as taking a little extra time in the bathroom, a moment in the car before getting the kids, or waking up before everyone else so that you can have a quiet moment for yourself.

A Good Nights Sleep

A Good Nights Sleep

We need more of it! How do we get it without drugs??! Chamomile tea, warm milk, meditation, soothing sounds , or even the smell of lavender can assist us in achieving the ultimate nights sleep. Are you getting 8 hours? You probably, like me, get between 5 and 7 (except on the weekends).

We all fight for it. Some of us believe we do not need it but it is necessary.

Meniscus (knee injury)issues

Whatever you do, try very hard to lose those unwanted pounds as soon as you can!

Once those issues begin, it is worse than the actual weight itself. I am in the process of losing and went hiking with my family 2 months ago. I injured my knee really bad but continued to exercise, jog , etc. It would not heal and so I went to see a Sports Medicine doctor last week. I went in for X-rays and will also schedule an MRI to see what the problem is, but I heard him mention something about a meniscus tear.

I researched it last night and am really MAD at myself for not losing ALL unwanted pounds earlier. Research says extra pounds as we get older will begin to assist in wearing on our knees and hips!

Believe me, I am TRULY back on my calorie counting and swimming, walking, and exercise bike (no jogging for now)!!!

 

Cheers!

Quick Weight loss???!!!

In the last month , I have watched my husband lose about 20 pounds! He puts on weight during the year and then all at once, he just decides to hit the gym and 5 am and eat little or nothing during the week -for a drastic weight loss! (SCUBA diving season).

This last time, I noticed that it was taking a toll on him. As he gets older and closer to 50 , I mentioned to him my concern about this diet routine. Of course, everyone knows how detrimental it can be on your system to have such a quick weight loss from basically “starving”- loss of muscle mass, dizziness, bad breath  as well as  a general feeling of malaise. I was also concerned about all of the driving back and forth, the intense exercise schedule and little or no food to give him the added energy to function throughout the day. When he complained of dizziness last week, he finally got it, and began to eat normally.

Of course, now he looks great and is exactly where he wants to be (give a few pounds).

I share this story because as I struggle with 30-40 pounds of weight I want off, he easily gets rid of it in no time! Fortunately (or unfortunately) , starving is not my thing!!

Cheers!

Mammogram anyone?

Just made my appointment to have my mammogram done. I absolutely hat this appointment every year! I am in my late 40’s but when I began growing breasts , I had an abnormality that only created one! At 17 years old, I had a breast reduction ( on the large side) and an implant placed into the smaller. whisked away to college 2 weeks later no one prepared me for the interesting problems that lay ahead!

1. I could only breast feed on one side (the implant side) because milk ducts are impaired during a reduction

2. I developed Keloids while healing and had to visit a dermatology for treatment ( and still do!)

3. 2 new breasts on a seventeen year -old away from home was not a good mix!

DON’T LET MY JOKING MAKE YOU FORGET TO MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT! MAKE IT AND KEEP IT!

 

CHEERS.
