Day 5 in the trek to a healthier mind and body for me (and Mickey). 🙂 I did my Tai Chi last night. I had it wrong though. The dvd is in 20, 40 or 60 minute increments. I did 20 minutes of sit-down Tai Chi, then I did 6 minutes of “Shake Weight.”
Are you laughing now? There’s something about the motion of that exercise device that is a little naughty. 🙂 But, I can sure feel it in my arms today.
Today’s Disney Dreams step is talking to my new health coach. I know…who can afford that right? Again through my benefits at work (I am a secretary in an ELCA church), I qualify for a personal health coach. Here’s why: weight, high blood pressure, pre-diabetes. Not a very fun trifecta! However, I am going to make use of that free resource!
Here’s what they say: “You qualify for Mayo Clinic Health Coaching. Take advantage of this phone-based service at no cost to you and let an experienced coach help you reach your health goals. You choose the health areas most important to you — then team up on an action plan personalized to your life. You’ll learn proven techniques to change habits for good and get help with challenges along the way.”
Here’s the plan: Talk to my health coach for one half hour today, and set up an action plan.
And I am still sugar-free. The headache is subsiding. Only a dull ache now. 🙂
A special shout out to my bestie, Jean, for sending me the book, “Trim Healthy Mama.” I am so blessed and grateful to have you in my life!! Love you.
Thanks for caring enough to read. Meet you at the Kingdom.
