Saying Your Healthy Is Just not Good Enough

I have had friends die because of health related issues. And one may think...hey that is enough for "Me" to be more health conscious. Hearing about the lost of a love one or a friend do to health issues is a sad and unbearable thought. I find myself going to the doctor every year for a physical. Flawlessly  pass every part of the examination  every year. Well all except for 08 and recently in 09. Twice I have come back with a flaw on my examination due to high Cholesterol. Doc says to me its your choice whether you want to live or die. To die just keep eating the same foods and change nothing about my exercise. To live meant to have the will to change my eating habits and to exercise regularly. I chose to Live obviously. I'm working out everyday and on my way to being in the best shape of my life. Changed my eating habits (not totally...but i have cut out alot of things) Some may ask why tell a story like this? I say why keep something in that could help someone out. You never know what or how you can touch someones life.  This is a personal blog day in the hopes of reaching out to someone somewhere that needs to change something in their life before its to late. Mine happened to be health related...but their are a number of other things that can and will lead you toward death. Life is already to short...so why not choose to live while you have the chance!

  1. I commend you for sharing your story and I believe that it is our responsibility as a community to help one another by sharing. If our stories can help someone, it would be selfish not to help. I'm not saying that I'm willing to share my ENTIRE life's story to the world, however, I have experienced challenges that I'm willing to share because I know that my experiences are not a direct reflection of me. Life happens!! And about the topic at hand, I applaud your efforts to change. I know it's not easy, but you can do it.
