So you made changes, maybe even tried a medication and went back for your follow up health check... And still, your numbers aren't where you thought they'd be.
Maybe your body is still throwing up warning flags, letting you know that chronic condition is hovering on the horizon.
If your health numbers are frustrating you to the point where you feel like giving up, you're not alone!
Many of my clients are right there with you on that feeling when they come to me.
Cholesterol numbers, BMI's, blood glucose- it can all be so confusing. It's no wonder your blood pressure skyrockets when you walk into the doctor's office, especially when it's just to find you didn't achieve the numbers you were shooting for, and here you go again.
The first thing to know is that some numbers are sensitive enough to be thrown off by that one party you went two days ago. The apparent lack of movement doesn't necessarily mean the changes you made meant nothing. Take your triglycerides, for example, you can find out more about the actions that can throw those numbers off - you can check out this Web MD slideshow, All About Triglycerides, to find out a bit more.
The good news here is that your health numbers are actually easier to work with than you think!
Many of my clients were struggling to reach those target goal numbers because they're trying to 'add in' a treatment to their daily life for a health flag. When the tweaks fail to produce the results, frustration mounts and folks go to war with their health- resorting to extreme guerrilla tactics.....maybe repetitive fastings, detox cleansing, denials of all sorts as a way of punishing their body into compliance.
I have to tell you, in the end, your body will win that war.
'So what is a winning strategy' you ask? Step 1 is understanding what 'HEALTHY' means to you and your life overall. Those numbers today aren't the whole picture.
Family history, the current health numbers, your lifestyle past, and present- all these factors come together to create the wellness you are experiencing today.
A great Coach (like me :-) can help you use what YOU know about YOU to envision and create a lifestyle that supports your health and wellness goals for your today and all your tomorrows.
