After I turned 37, it seemed my body just broke!

Migraine that made me so light sensitive I had to rock my shades in the ER.

I have had a string of health issues to contend with the last couple of months. Nothing that I would call serious, but certainly the results could have gone very differently and could have been life changing.

There have been CT scans (I even had a transient episode – reaction to the dye), MRIs, X-rays, blood tests (my arms are all bruised from all the needle pokes), ultrasounds, orb scans, and I have been to more doctors and specialists than I can count on one hand. I recently had surgery in the emergency room for an infected cyst on my neck that was giving me a migraine so bad that I was dry heaving. It has been crazy.

Lately, because of all of my health issues I haven’t been as active, but I am still trying to do the right thing for my body and eat right, take isotonic vitamins, and live a healthy life. Over the last year and a half I have lost almost 40 pounds, over 20 inches, and 10% body fat. I feel better than I have in years, but with all these health issues it makes you see that the body is a sensitive thing. One thing out of whack can cause so many other problems.

My very fast husband acting like he is trying to catch up to me at the finish line.

I try work out at least three days a week. Well, I like to do Zumba which is more like going dancing for me. I find such joy and fun in Zumba. You definitely need to find something you love to make it stick. In addition, I run, ok more like walk/jog 5ks about once a month with friends or my hubby, which is funny because I am so not a runner. I actually despise running and before every 5K I ask myself, why the heck am I doing this? But after each race, I am so glad I did it.

I am not going to stop investing in my future with my health. What are you doing to take care of you?
