On the positive side, significant and sustained lifestyle changes are supposed to reduce risk of recurrence 3-4% as well. I am working effectively to achieving those lifestyle changes too. I have gotten my BMI to less than 25 – I lost 39 pounds, I am exercising every day – I track 10,000 steps every day. I even did a 5K with Unite For Her on Saturday Sept 22nd. Considering I have never been a runner, it is quite noteworthy. In addition, I have slowly worked to eliminate toxins from my environment. The last piece of this puzzle is stress reduction. Exercise is a piece of it, but I also am very carefully considering what comes back into my life and looking at possibly starting Tia Chi. It is less impactful to my wrists and joints than yoga. If anyone would like to try it with me, let me know.
I am slowly starting to relaunch my business, Leveraging Financial Knowledge, LLC. Other things in my life are still chaotic, so I am working to get those things under control as well. I am finally feeling like I am back to myself and able to make progress. The silver lining; I have had to go through my closet to find what clothes fit and what I need to replace. I am back into my size 6’s in my closet, woo hoo!
