OK so this one isn’t digital marketing related, but it is business owner health related so I feel like it may reasonate with some of you anyway!
Putting my heart on my sleeve and my ego aside.. I am on a health journey AGAIN!
In november last year I ended up in hospital with bilateral pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in both my lungs) which was pretty scary but at the same time, I didn’t recognise the severity of it at the time. After a few months of blood thinners and rest, I had my hematology follow up appointment last week and that was a huge eye opener for me. My health is really not great.
So, I spent the end of last week in a tail spin. I was down in the dumps, depressed and lacking energy (as usual) and just in this huge slump. I didn’t want to do anything.
BUT something switched over the weekend. If not now, then when? I was literally on the verge of death. Noone knows why or what caused the blood clots but I am going to assume that my obese BMI, and the way I have been eating for the past 20 or so years didn’t exactly help.
So, here we go again. But this time is different. This time is the last. And I’m not going to lie – the first few days have been HARD to say the least.
I have brought a soda stream and I’m having carbonated water instead of coke. Im trying to stick to a plant-based/whole food diet, and I’m walking for at least an hour every morning.
I’m not comfortable in my skin or my clothes, I don’t have the energy to keep up with my kids, and my overall health is just rubbish. I am embarrased with how far I have let it slide.
So it’s time. It’s time to prioritise my health and do something about it. I’ll try and share my journey with you.
Wish me luck!
