The New Year is Right Around the Corner...so Don't Forget About You

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with M & M Realty of Brevard Inc. BK629999

the new year is right around the cornerIt is at this time of year that we don't eat right, don't get enough sleep and let our exercise program fall by the wayside. 

So, my question is, What Are You Doing For You?

When was the last time you went to the doctor and had a checkup?

When was the last time you had blood work done to see if you are healthy? See if your glucose levels are correct? If your cholesterol is okay? If your blood work is indicating that you are healthy?

Did you know that some healthcare facilities offer low cost health screenings?

I just had blood work completed to check on protein levels, iron, glucose, lipids, cholesterol and more. It was a complete blood history for only $30.00 at a local health care lab, with a 20 page summary outlining my current state of health based on the findings.

Do you currently exercise at least five days a week?

Are you a smoker?

Do you drink?

Do you eat healthy?

This is the time of year to get focused and concentrate on what you are going to do for you in the upcoming year.

No better way to start 2009 than on the right foot; eating right, staying healthy, exercising and losing that extra weight.

Best wishes!

Hi Sandy, Good advice, and good for you for getting your blood work, done! Now, I have to be honest, first I have to finish eating all the leftover goodies, crackers, blood thickening deli meat... oh and that open bottle of wine. (Well, wine is supposed to be good for you) Then, I can concentrate on getting healthier! Luv ya!

Hey Sandy... no smoking or drinking here... unlike my teenage years in Cocoa Beach! My new years resolution is quiting all sugars & carbs.

Sandy, thanks for the reminder. My doctor likes me to have bloodwork done yearly. I guess right after Christmas and all the good food isn't the best time to do it, tho.

Hi Mary, You're too funny!  We definitely pick up all the bad habits over the holidays -that's for sure. I actually didn't do too bad this season.  I stayed away from most sweets.  I have picked my exercise routine back up and getting ready to take my girls out to enjoy this perfect day here!  Have a good one!  Luv you too!

Hey Colleen, When did you live in Cocoa Beach?  I used to hang out in Cocoa Beach more than I care to admit.  We probably ran into each other all the time.  Small, small world.  I don't smoke or drink either, and I'm with you...trying to ditch ALL the sweets and the carbs - my weakness is bread. I LOVE white rolls.  I don't eat them very often, but need to cut them out completely.

Hey Rich, I went in and had my bloodwork done before the holidays.  I figured I would get a head start on it.  I imagine right after the holidays wouldn't be the perfect time. Give it till after the beginning of the year. Take care of yourself and I hope that you are well!

Hi Paul, Now I know that you have been working on your weight for awhile now, because I remember reading your blog about it.  I remember reading the touching story about 2 of your friends.  It was scary - and should be a wake up call to all of us. Keep up the great job.  I'm sure you can stick with it.

Sandy Good advise besides setting up business goal, how about some health goals too.
