Here's one that is on most people's "thankful" lists. While I'm not in perfect health, I'm thankful for the ability to manage my asthma so that I stay as healthy as possible.
After being admitted to the hospital in the early Spring with sepsis and asthma issues, I started to take my health even more seriously... I mean not being able to breath has always been scary, but that trip through the ER and getting admitted was a whole other level of stressful. So I joined a gym, tried to cut out some extra calories and decided to participate in my health plan's mentoring program.
It's a process...and some days are far more successful than others. But I feel like it's helped. The holidays are busy and stressful and I know that no matter how good my intentions are - a little extra dessert will make its way into my life.
Who wants to come walk around the block with me after Thanksgiving dinner?! Ha!
