Happy Healthy New Year

Happy New Year! It's 2012 and like most people, I have started off the year with hopes of becoming more physically fit. I have made it to the gym 3 times since I have been back in the country and have no intentions of stopping. Many say that by February, our resolutions of physical fitness die down and the gym becomes a memory. Let's hope that doesn't happen to me!

The same can be said of YOUR health. There is not one of us who can honestly say they have no room for improvement because we should all be constantly trying to better ourselves especially with our health. I'm going to start adding fish oil tablets to my vitamin regiment. I have long been frightened to take additional supplements since I really thought I was pretty healthy before the stroke. I took Green Vibrance every morning, stretched etc etc. I have slowly been adding vitamins and other things I used to do in my former daily routine to my new life. This is the year to be at your best health ever! I know, I sound like a page out of an exercise magazine but I'm serious!

When I was on vacation, I ran into a childhood friend who is very close in age to me. He suffered a heart attack the year before I had my stroke. Both of us found ourselves in an in depth conversation about drugs such as Plavix and Warfarin. We paused for a second because we realized we sounded like our parents! Both of us standing there, survivors of disease, laughing about who's taking what and in agreement that maybe we went through what we did so we wouldn't have to suffer later in life. No suffering this year, no hospitals, only routine doctor visits!

Here's to your best health best you ever this year. I'm looking forward to it :)
