Healthy Color

Well, I made it to the grocery store and returned with the healthy stuff. Taking the time to read the labels of everything I was buying, took additional time. I think I may have set a record for the longest grocery shopping experience.

The report I mentioned on Monday’s post was lengthy and the section on supplements is going to take more time to investigate. What I’ve read so far makes a lot of sense and I think it was a worth while purchase.

Some of the report included the commonly known healthy choices that we should already be making. However it also offers much information on nutrients, exercise, sleep, stress, meditation (I’ll call prayer), etc., some of which I was not aware, such as sea salt.

Who knew, sea salt, make the switch.

So, bringing home the colorful food is only the beginning to this natural approach of controlling blood pressure and a new way of living.

These are two of my healthiest pieces of art, both from my “Home Grown” collection.

Come Up-ins

Regarding my recent post on struggling to achieve a healthy balance, it has become apparent that I must take the issue a bit more seriously. After the holiday’s festivities and extending the fairly steady diet of treats, pie, cookies, cakes & candy, I am getting my just desserts! My come up-ins! Yep, the party’s over. I’ve officially joined the 65 million Americans (American Heart Association) with high blood pressure and the condition definitely has my full attention.

A Yummy Batch of Oatmeal Cookies

So, the plan is to try the natural approach. Over the weekend a search turned up this report “High Blood Pressure Remedy Report” so, I’m reading up and going grocery shopping for the healthy stuff.

Although these were yummy cookies , the only healthy ingredient was oatmeal.


Still struggling to achieve that elusive “healthy balance” of all that we try to fit into our busy lives. Seems to be an ongoing goal. Walking is the one healthy activity that has worked for my schedule or is most consistent, although, I’ve even abandoned that for many months. Today, will be three days of WALKING in a row! Next on my list for 2010, strengthening exercise, eating right and cutting down on caffeine to name a few.
