It’s a new year and the perfect time to reach those health and fitness goals. For me it’s time to shed these baby pounds and get back a regular exercise routine. I have been doing the Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred and am seeing great results, but I admit most days I do not want to do it. Along with exercise I know my diet needs some tweaking, I love my carbs and have a sweet tooth. I am generally pretty good about what I eat but the holidays brought out my sweets loving side and I am still indulging a bit too much. I have always been a fan of the CVS MinuteClinic and have visited it twice myself, once when I had strep and once when I had bronchitis. As a mom I tend to take care of myself last and often find myself in the throws of serious illness on the weekend or after my doctors office hours, thankfully my local MinuteClinic is not only close but has great hours for busy moms. The people at my local MinuteClinic are super friendly and knowledgeable, I am so grateful to them for the quick and thorough care I have gotten in the past.
This year CVS MinuteClinic has two new programs that are worth looking into the MinuteClinic Weight Loss Program and the MinuteClinic Smoking Cessation Program. The Weight Loss Program really caught my eye as it offered personal health assessments by the nurse practitioners at CVS MinuteClinic. The program follows the DASH diet and you get a full physical assessment to start your plan and you can have continued medical guidance throughout. For anyone who has serious health concerns about dieting or exercising or both this sounds like a very smart way to go. The plans range in cost depending on how much lab work you need but on average it is $69. To me this sounds like a personal trainer in the health department and who wouldn’t want that? This sounds particularly good for those people I know who have made exercise and diet changes and are not seeing the results they want.
It’s a new year and while we all want to be healthy all the time that doesn’t happen so if you fall ill, be sure to visit your neighborhood CVS MinuteClinic and if you need help loosing weight try out the MinuteClinic Weight Loss Program.
