Getting healthy in the Rain

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Riverbend Realty, Cape Girardeau, MO 2004008944

For two months now, I've been thinking of Dr. Stacey-Ann Baugh, and her GET HEALTHY challenge. It fit right into what I needed to do as I continue to make the lifestyle changes that will, literally, lengthen my life.Mended Hearts

My goal in the challenge was to continue to keep up an exercise regime after I graduated from the formal Cardiac Rehab that I was in following quadruple bypass surgery in October. As I explained at the start of the challenge, supporting my heart health was my primary concern, but losing weight is a component of that. I did lose a few additional pounds during the challenge.

I am now down 27 pounds from my heaviest weight, having lost some before surgery, during the hospital stay, and since surgery. I am bolstered every time someone remarks on my weight loss, but I am careful to always explain that I have worked at it. When people first started noticing my smaller size, they often worried that my recovery was not going well. I am not "wasting away." I am sweating it off!

During the two months in the challenge, I have been faithful to my exercise sessions, having only missed three times. I actually tried to make up one of those today, but found the gym closed for Easter Sunday. That is alright, because I will be back tomorrow, and I will pay my fee to stay in the program another month.

The challenge of being healthy continues and my mended heart is the best incentive I have (though it also is nice to hear people say that I'm looking great)...

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.

If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?

NO OTHER SOURCE is as complete or as fast as your local REALTOR®’s source. This is not just an advertisement for REALTORS®--it is information about how the system really works.

Exercise is key to health and energy. Keep up the good work even if you have to push yourself.
