What does Wellness mean to you? I have thought about this and one thing is certain... for me it would be a normal blood pressure reading... although I have been to the gym regularly since September and have lost 15 lbs, my blood pressure when I visited my doctor 3 weeks ago was 146/101... not good!
I have joined the Wellness Journey class at Big Picture... and I know my focus will be on becoming a healthy person... How? Well... for one thing I definitely need to decrease my stress... so this will be accomplished by continuing to do the things I am doing, but also to incorporate some stress relieving exercises like deep breathing for 5-10 minutes each day... this will help me to decompress (so I don't implode!!). Also, I am looking forward to adding a strength training routine to my regular workout schedule... Other things I will work on is meal planning and taking wheat & sugar (chocolate especially) out of my diet (I did this for 2 months before Christmas and it really worked). So there... I am sharing this with you to help keep myself accountable and I really hope within a few months I can be rid of the blood pressure pills I am currently on.
To help encourage myself I made a little layout which I will share with you... and if you wish to tag along on this journey I would love to hear from you.
