How many times can we say that? 'I'm Back'.....? I've lost count for me. This time though I am back because I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure. I was put on medication and have to wait three weeks before I can exercise. Leisurely walking is okay. Once we determine if my medication is working, then prayerfully I will be released to exercise. I have a pulsing vein on the left side of my head and I sure hope it goes away once everything is regulated.
A part of me wants to start exercising now, but I know I can't. That's abnormal for me. I hate exercise. But, I know I can't so maybe that makes me want it. Sorta like that Dr. Pepper or fresh made sugar cookie sitting in the ziploc on the counter. Whatever it is, I'm doing my very best to be good. Every meal and snack since Tuesday evening has been healthy and as low sodium as possible.
I know how to eat right for the most part, but this low sodium stuff is really giving me grief. Can't quite wrap my mind around having to watch every bite I eat that much closer. I'll get there.
I've decided that the reason I can't exercise right now IS because I need to get the food part right. In three weeks, the food part ought to be going well and it should be easier to add in the exercise. Right?
Until next time,
