Nothing like being slapped in the face with a visit to the doctor. He is not happy with me, almost to the point where he couldn't wait to get out of the office.

My blood pressure is higher than it's ever been. Not high, but high for me. Eat less and move more is his advice. Don't you love old school doctors? Take up running he said.

My job is more stressful than it has ever been and my 5 1/2 year old is in full swing of not listening to anything! Please tell me this stage passes quickly! LOL

Walked a mile this morning and am shooting for another mile this afternoon.

Wish me luck and please pray for me.

    Moving is important however so is the type of food you eat and how much, protein takes a lot longer to process in the body and makes you feel fuller over a day :), finding 'your' exercise that you love is the key too. Mine is walking and zumba, it makes me happy.

    When you feel happy, everything seems to be great, look after you and have a 5 min play date with the 5 year old where they get all of you for that time.

    You are wonderful :)

    Wishing you good health... now, you've got to move it! (Think of that song from the 90s: "I like to move it, move it..."

    Being slapped might end up being the best thing for you. Once you get more active that 5 yrs old won't be able to out run you and you will feel great running after him. You can do this.

    Sometimes those slaps in the face is what we need to get our butt in gear!

    Honestly, moving more may help decrease your stress levels...decreasing your BP. Hang in there, things always get better. You got this!
