A little bit of everything

A good day!

Today I had all sorts of plans but I didn't get to do all of them. Thankfully, I can still call today a great day because I did a bunch of other unplanned things that I felt I had the energy for, not only did I have the energy but I also managed to get through the day without any discomfort!

Change of mindset

I managed to have a true change of lifestyle since the hospital incident as it really opened my eyes that this is the moment to do something. No more postponing in getting healthier even on days that I don't feel too excited as in a couple of days I simply only have to get up and step on our brand new treadmill. So bad weather, wind, rain, it's no excuse anymore, lol.

But for now, I also still have two types of medication for my blood pressure, which I hope won't be a lifelong thing if my health improves, but let's not get too eager right away and take it step by step. Poco a poco as they say here.

The original plans

I wrote half a post for the @ladiesofhive contest, as @kerrislravenhill asked about a topic right up my sleeve. Then I got distracted by cleaning the kitchen properly (again: without pain guys, that's been forever since my back gave me some slack doing so) and before I knew it, I was making my daughter's favourite pasta for lunch. I figured I better eat the heavier meals during lunch when I can so I have two rounds of walking left to shake off the calories, lol. But the post is probably going to be published tomorrow, I think I still have time, will check that in the morning..

Another thing I planned was catch up on the amazing response to my last Silver Gold Stackers engagement initiative as many wrote comments or their own post while I was not feeling well, so I feel a bit bad for not being back on track in terms of engagement but I figured, before the new one is written, I'm going to check every comment/post anyway so don't worry, I've seen your response and I will take everyone into consideration!

The only thing that I had planned and actually did was the laundry and organizing my list with blood pressure values from a paper note to a digital document so I can properly show it next week when I see the cardiologist for the first time. I love analysing things and I've been monitoring my blood pressure before and after medication, before and after lunch and walks etc so I can see a pattern. I've also written down the things I've consumed to see where I can improve.

The actual day

I mentioned a few things above already but on top of that, it was another good day with two more walks, as every day this week. One after lunch and one after dinner. I've been very happy with the change from day two when starting the second medication. Not only did it definitely get my blood pressure back to healthier levels, I've also managed to shake off the pains in my arm and hands most of the days.

I've been feeling much more energized and happier, the cloud in my head is 100% gone and even after a very shitty night last night, I still managed to get the day started without feeling like the day is ruined on forehand. Normally, these days are guaranteed to fail but none of this, I've been much more active than the past months in general. No huge discomforts really help me get shit done without relying on my boyfriend to finish the task for me and every day I've managed to get proper food on the table as well. Today I decided to treat my girl for being on her best behaviour all week!


This picture kind of sums up my mindset currently :)

Happy and ready to change things

I'm feeling this thing happened for a reason as I needed this to not only say that I want to change things, but actually do it. My daughter has joined me on all walks and we added the outdoor gym to our routine in the evenings as well. I can't use all the machines because of my knees, but the ones that I can use, are definitely going to help me get the blood flowing properly again. I'm smiling most of the day, and it's a good feeling!

Great talk with my boyfriend

We have a clear view of where we want to go but the cloud in my head has honestly been a huge part of not pushing things through when I could have if my health was a bit better. I can see now how bad the health situation was because I feel this huge difference now. But now that it's gone, we finally had one of these long good talks about what the vision is short and long term and I think I have something to work on now. These type of talks really get the excitement going and it feels like a good timing for new steps as well.

The cherry on the cake!

Then I received a notification that I was accepted in the @ssg-community with a bunch of great people who are all very supportive and cool to hang out with. I feel these people are a great bunch to chat with and from what I've seen so far, a lot of them are very eager to help, guide and get good people onboarded to Hive. This is great and inspiring!

As it's already 11:11 here (I love numerology) I will dig for a picture or two and then call it a day. I need to dive into my bed to process all the things we spoke about today and make a plan.

Wishing everyone a great evening, day or whatever time zone you're in :)

I'm glad it has helped so much! Being active really makes such a huge difference, and might even make that blood pressure pill disappear eventually too!

That's really the goal!
