I’m Feeling Inspired

II’ve been working hard over the past two months. Last time I saw my doctor we discussed a number of different issues ranging from anxiety to my blood pressure and my weight.

Since my last visit,  two months ago, I’ve dropped 12 pounds. My blood pressure is hovering at an almost-too-high place but it’s static (the bottom number is the issue). I’ve self-identified some of the triggers for my anxiety and I’ve taken on some different mindful/self-care activities. 

She was totally happy to see my progress and was thrilled at the weight loss. I explained my intermittent fasting plan and she had no problem with it.

I also talked to her about my GYN concerns from the other day. She said they can handle that stuff in their office. We also discussed the middle-of-the-night headaches I get from sinus, tension, or both. She’s helping me modify my allergy routine so that hopefully I won’t wake up in the early AM hours unable to think.

I’m feeling inspired to do more. I feel better than I have in a while. And I’m certainly motivated to not need meds. Unless I need a sick visit, I’ll see her again in 6 months!


  1. I took myself off a couple of meds myself. I think the weight loss is key, because I lost a few pounds too. Glad you are feeling better. Hope all gets better.

  2. Hi there! I’m coming from the A2Z Blog Challenge.

    Congrats on your weight loss. I, too, am on a similar journey to better health for the mind, body, and spirit because all facets are intertwined. Good luck to you!

  3. Congrats on your health! I’ve been working on putting up a chin-up bar in my backyard, because I remembered how much I loved doing tricks on one when I was younger. I was obsessed with it. I already have the muscle memory for it, so it’s just a matter of building up the strength. I’ll do that the same way I did when I was younger, and I’ll see if it works to get me back in shape. Wish me luck! 🙂
