So, let me ask you a question…

Do you take the condition of your body seriously?

  1. The honest answer here is no. If I did, I would not be on the program that I am on today nor would I have the concerns. However, I do have to admit things are going in a positive direction.

  2. I suppose that depends on what it happens to be doing or not doing, and how that compares with what I want it to do or not do. Much as I would like to be able to take it for granted, sometimes it demands some seriousness. That said, I don’t follow some planned program of exercise and diet is kind of improvisational, so it is safe to say I don’t go obsessive about it.

  3. Yes. I’m nearly never sick or hurting, so when I do feel something off I’m acutely aware of it. And I do stay very active with the gym, kayaking, biking, etc. And my job requires a lot of walking and can become very physical very fast. Oh, and I have three very active and rambunctious boys to keep with, so if my body fails, I’m screwed.

      • Good for you! I can’t say I’m some health nut. I’m not. I despise going to the gym, for anything besides the pool. Just that most of the stuff I like to do requires some level of exertion. I kinda inadvertently get my workouts. But they don’t feel like the drudgery of a workout. Win-win. 😃

  4. Yes. I have several health issues such as high blood pressure and hypothyroid, and anxiety… all controlled with meds. So I keep that in mind when I’m choosing what to eat. Not much salt, caffeine or processed foods. Exercise helps all my conditions, so I walk regularly and try to get to the gym. It’s a lifestyle for me, not a quick diet or intense working out for a week. It’s a process, a healthy lifestyle.

  5. The condition of my body is overwhelming and I fail at taking it seriously. I have RA, diabetes, fibro, high blood pressure, an aortic aneurysm and other heart problems, esophageal spasms, and a few other issues. I try to take it very seriously but the more meds they put me on the worse I feel. Lifestyle changes are desperately needed but I struggle with those also. I guess my new motto really needs to be, “Do or Die”, literally.

    • I do a lot of talks with MS support groups and I encourage people to focus on one thing about their health: value the types of food you put in your body. When your body is struggling, putting low-quality food in is like pouring sand into the fuel tank of your car. Food can make a huge difference.

  6. A recent health issue is forcing me to. I eat decent and exercise but struggle with anemia, not a major or uncommon thing. But my iron was so low recently I thought I had a respiratory infection. Turns out my lungs were struggling to work properly. I need to slow down and listen to what my body is trying to tell me.

  7. As I get older, I do take it more seriously. I’ve been exercising regularly and paying attention to symptoms. I wish I had done this when I was younger, but, even at my advanced age, I can still reverse the negative effects of misspent youth.
