How Much?

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Good Day Sparkfam! Its a brisk but extremely sunny day here in Chicago & I'm in high spirits! Did I thank you guys for all your support & for helping me when I feel I need support too. You guys are the best cheer leading squad around!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonYEAH ME!! WOOHOO!

I woke up this morning feeling like someone slipped me a mickey. That means they drugged me somehow? So needless to say, I laid in bed until 9am & then got up to rush out to work without breakfast & bottle of milk & a hurried piece of grilled KFC chicken for lunch. I was got to work feeling sleepy and tired, I don't if I've told you guys but I am really fatigued lately. I also have been have an ache in my shoulder so I have self-diagnosed myself with walking pneumonia. Why? I had it when I was child and while I don't have a fever or cough, I'm tired & achy. Not achy or tired from working out either. I am making an appointment to have my doctor listen to my chest & see what goes with that. I have had a cough a mucus every other week but I don't have a cold or feel congested. Maybe I am being silly but I'll just have it checked out. lol

So I am at work going through my emails and decided to take the "real age" test. I will be 42 in April but my real age would be 38. Now if I could workout less, lose more weight, take a vitamin e supplement & eat more potassium & eat more fish or take a Omega 3 supplement that would probably take it down another 5 years. I sat here feeling good but wondering how much is my health worth to me? I mean, couldn't buy more fruits & veggies, buy more foods filled potassium, eat more fish? Then I went to Target got me some bananas & a bottle of bolthouse real juice & strawberries. I got a lettuce too. By the time I was done I had spent almost $40. Which isn't surprising to me at all. I should allot for fresh fruits and vegetables weekly for me & the family always.

I did walk today for 60mins & tonight after making steak & chicken tacos & chili. I will be doing Vinyasa Yoga for 60mins once I get everyone else taken care of.

So how much is your health worth to you?

You don't need a membership to a gym everything we could possibly need is available to us here on Sparkpeople the rest is inevitably up to us. . . .Remember to celebrate the small things everyday!

God bless Sparkfam!!

    It does cost to get healthier but the end result pays for itself. Hope you are feeling better soon. The gym isn't for me. Too many men hitting on me. Could not workout for roving eyes all over me.

    Girl I wish you lived near me. the fresh fruit and vegetable markets are amazing and cheap. You gotta have some by you. They are all owned by Greeks. The only one I know that is halfway close to you is Stanley's, on Elston & North Ave. or Ashland & North Ave.

    But the gym is just the added bonus!! LOL! Loved the blog today. Yes, you definitly need to get checked out. My DHwas having the same type of symptoms. No pneumonia, but doc did give him an inhaler. Taking care of yourself is so worth it! Thanks for the reminder. Hope all goes well at the Doctor. Keep us informed.
