Earlier this week I headed to my doctor’s office, slight case of tendonitis in my knee, and had a lengthy discussion about what health screenings and tests we would need to run now that I’ve turned 40. I go back for those in a few weeks, but of course, much of the discussion was about the need to lose some weight. I have a family history of heart disease and diabetes. Being overweight increases the already high risk for those things that I have.
I’m definitely feeling a need to change my balance a bit, to pay a bit more attention to my health, my diet, and other habits. Obviously, that doesn’t mean I should stop paying attention to all the other things around me, but sometimes, you have to do what you have to do for yourself. This is a great example.
I have to do a better job of taking care of myself physically. I’m hopeful that won’t intefere with the other areas of my life, but it will be a challenge. I’m not really used to paying that much attention to that aea of my life, but it’s time to do that.
