Ok, so I took a blogging break. I just couldn't bring myself to sit at the computer. Easter was crazy busy (but great) and then the kids were out of school the next 2 days. I also had 2 doctor's appointments.
Speaking of doctor's appointments, I FINALLY got to get my WHOLE body wet! Yeah! A shower never felt so good! My foot feels great, which is why the doctor told me to be careful. I feel like I can do more than is actually good for me. I'm still in the horrible big shoe and now I have a spacer between my big toe and the next. I have to wear a foot splint at night. (you cared to know all that, right?)
On my quest for total health (not just weight loss), I visited the website www.RealAge.com. You've probably heard of it, many books sold, on Oprah often, well respected doctors. I liked the site a lot. So I took the survey. I'm 41 years old according to my birthdate. I'm 48 years old according to my Real age! Wake up call! This is unacceptable. God gave me a perfectly well functioning body, capable of doing many things and working properly. I have got to treat it better! If I had taken this test a year ago, I bet I would've been my age or younger. A lot of healthy habits have slipped and a lot of stress entered my life. I gained 20 pounds. I went back to work. There have been a lot of changes. (yea, yea, whatever...quit making excuses Melissa and make the necessary changes to get your health back!)
OK, I will.
Seriously, it is my goal to be 38 by the end of June. :)
In my next post I'll get a little more specific about what my individual report said and the changes I can easily make.
Do you know your Real Age? If so, let me know (if you are so inclined to share).
No matter what your chronological, Real, or whatever age, you are beautiful and so am I.....yada yada yada! (just kidding on the yada part)
Blessed to be in a silly mood today (can you tell?)
