Pursuing Health and wellness

Posted January 22nd, 2010 by jenkijos

I am very excited about my progress in this challenge.  I had my first meeting with a personal trainer at Dixon yesterday who just happened to be my old roommate.  It was very challenging and showed me how far behind I am with my knee rehab and my flexibility.  Considering I used to live with him, he did not hold anything back in informing me how pathetic I was in certain areas. :)  I am excited to pursue improvements in these areas, and I am also doing a great job of getting 7 hours of sleep this term.  I have been trying to get 6 hours a night for four years now and consistently have missed my goal.  I think having this challenge has motivated me to make it a higher priority and with the extra sleep I have been getting I feel like a new man. 

I am confident that I will continue to improve my overall health and wellness to help me re-open the pursuit of the many large dreams that I have.  I have been using CAPS services as of late as well and have really found them to be beneficial to help me improve as a person.   Again, nothing super exciting to report, but maybe by the end of the chalenge I can kill a cougar with my bear hands or something so I have something really exciting to share with you all. 

Have a great weekend,

Joey Jenkins

    Good job! You ‘sound’ much more positive this week! I like that the trainers are pushing us to do better, it helps. Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to see the cougar and bear at the end of your challenge!

    Sometimes you really need someone to tell you how “pathetic” you are…it’s usually for your benefit especially when it comes to your health. A good trainer is only there to help you…good luck with your knee rehab.
