I recently went to the doctor and was informed that I have high blood pressure. Since I am only 30 I found that a bit concerning. I started researching and taking the steps necessary to be healthy. I don’t want to die of a heart attack when I am 50 years old. I now eat extremely clean. I don’t eat red meat anymore. I eat chicken, shrimp and salmon for protein. I eat all sorts of vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains. I also no longer smoke, drink alcohol or coffee. I made it my mission to start meditating and relaxing myself in the evening. The last step was working out. I had a backyard shed that strictly kept tools safe. Now I have converted it into my own personal gym. I replaced the windows, redid the cement flooring and painted the walls. I bought folding mats to keep the floor soft. I also bought a sound system to make it more fun. Lastly, I bought an air conditioner and heater for temperature control. I need AC most of the time since I live down in Missouri. It is hot, muggy and sticky during a Lee’s Summit summer. The AC is absolutely required in order to get a decent workout in. I start sweating profusely the moment I walk out my door. I didn’t want to make it so I had to work out at 6 am everyday. The winters do get chilly in Missouri too. I didn’t want to fight tight and sore muscles. A little bit of heating goes a long way. Now I can work out in style and work to lower my blood pressure.
