I can remember breezing through years without visits to the doctor. Now I have to go every six months to my primary care physician. Then there are visits to the dermatologist, the orthopedic doctor, the gynecologist.....
And of course we can't forget the dentist. Aging brings on a host of new dental woes.
I remember my dad saying that getting old is not for sissies. Boy was he right, but I also know that over the winter I have let up on my self care.
This morning I sat myself down and said enough with the excuses.
It is beyond time to lose those unwanted pounds I accumulated over the last few months.
It is time to get out and get moving again and start back on my healthy eating program.
Putting it in writing seems to make it all the more real to me, and so I am going to write out my plan.
I know that I want to be around for many years to come to watch my sweet grandchildren grow. It is definitely an incentive to start taking better care of myself again.
How about you? Do you feel that now that spring is actually here you need to make changes and start taking better care of yourself?
I would love to hear what you are going to do. Maybe I can incorporate some of your ideas into my own plan?
