YOUR HEALTH AFFECTS OTHERS

Good morning.


Happy Friday!


I just took my second Trulicity pen treatment for the week. I called Mom and told her about my experience. So the first pen, it left me feeling sore due to injecting the solution in my thigh- NO GO FOR ME!!!!

This round, I did the next injection in my belly (where there is more meat- 😂😂😂) and it didn’t hurt, and it was a lot easier for me to handle. Further in the conversation, she brought up that she told Nana about my news. Long story short, my health is impacting my grandmother.


It had me thinking, wow, I’m not the only one affected by my current health issues and decisions. How I take care of myself affects everyone. The last person I ever wanted to be affected by this was my grandmother because she’s a diabetic. It’s bittersweet because I’m glad to know that she’s concerned, but now I feel like that’s another person I’ve let down.


Don’t worry Nana, I’ll make you proud. I say all of this to say that your overall health is not just a personal matter, it’s a family matter as well. If you don’t have that support group within your family, start today. Sit down with your parents and loved ones, let them know how your health is, and figure out ways to keep each other positive and encouraged.


If you’re just starting on your health journey, create a plan. Write down your struggles, your goals, and what you want to get out of this experience. Do it together as a family so you can keep each other accountable.

Well, time for me to get work done. I’ll check in with you later.

Until next time…

A MUCH NEEDED DO-OVER

Good evening

Just wanted to give you an update on how things have been in my life. Let’s start with health:

I’m starting over on “Road to 200” due to things spiralling out of control due to stress, over-thinking, fear, laziness, and feeling overwhelmed…

All of these things while keeping a smile on my face…

Eating patterns were…horrible for the most part. Dad and I both came to the conclusion that we have to do better. So I took time to edit my goals for my health and taking my time slowly changing my unhealthy habits. Tomorrow will be the official Day 1, where I’m not only being honest with you all, but with myself as well as I face the good, the bad, and the ugly of being unhealthy during a pandemic.

Work is…work. I’m going through the motions. I get up, do the same thing over and over again. Still not feeling fulfilled, but mature because I know it’s a responsibility to keep a job, pay rent and bills, and be an adult. But, I say no more.

I aced my media writing class, and probably had some issues with my video submission for my week 1 discussion board. Not to mention, I have to write 3 proposal letters for my writing assignment, only having 1 completed so far. For the past few days after the video disaster, I’ve constantly been overthinking about how I’m doing in this class, and it’s causing me to feel stressed and overwhelmed. Tomorrow, I’ll come back fresh, and rethink how I can approach future writing assignments.

Due to class, work, health, and life, I took a small hiatus from the blog to prioritize some things. Long story short, I need to better time-block my day. I have my planner out where I can see it, I’ve made my intentions for the week, and wrote down action plans to get more accomplished. For now, I need to get some sleep since I didn’t sleep well last night.

I’ll leave you all with this peaceful Verse of the Day, found in Zephaniah 3:17.

The Lord your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
Zephaniah 3:17 NASB

Until next time…
