Taking Care of Me with Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Memphis #shop

by Notorious Spinks on 03.31.2014

cb-shop-disclosureMy health is important to me, but the last six months have been hard. Starting in August 2013, I started working out. I was in beast mode and I would walk on the treadmill daily. I also added some lunges and stomach crunches in. I was going hard, but then pneumonia hit me with an upper cut in September. I was ill, having shortness of breath and working out was not possible. In times like this, the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Memphis comes in handy.

In February, the weather was terrible across the country and on one cold morning, a driver crossed the median and hit us head on. I’m still dealing with headaches and pain from that. I know… but, don’t feel sorry for me because I’m still living.

However, before I do that I wanted to stop by the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Memphis to get a health screening with health risk assessment. It’s important to me that I get a work up before I start my workout regimen. More so, I love that I can visit my local Walgreens, head back to the pharmacy area and see a licensed health professional as a walk-in or an appointment.

On my most recent visit to the healthcare clinic, the nurse practitioner on duty advised me of my need  that my blood pressure was good, my glucose levels were pre-diabetic and my cholesterol levels were good. She also provided me with tips to get healthier. Here are some of those tips:

  • Exercise/increase activity
  • Eat fish high in omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, mackerel and tuna)
  • Read food labels
  • Eat balanced healthy meals

Overall, I eat well, but I struggle with eating enough due to skipping meals. I know that this isn’t good and I will work on this week by putting my meals times on my schedule. I tend to work well with a planned schedule. If you’d like to join me in living a healthier life, then consider the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic Memphis for health screening to make sure you don’t need to follow-up with your physician before starting a fitness regimen.

How do you maintain a healthy lifestyle? Working out? Eating balanced and regular meals?

    I love the convenience of being able to pop into a Walgreens for minor ailments

    I love Walgreens. I’d be lost without ours, it’s like our home away from home, literally.

  • jheylo

    We have walgreens here but I haven’t tried buying meds at their pharmacy yet. Will check that out!

    I am not sure of our Walgreens here dif they do the same thing with what your Walgreens does. I have a friend who has been in and out of the hospital due to pneumonia and it seems like a very stubborn disease because it keeps coming back. I do zumba, eat more fruits, meats and veges and less carbs, I stay active by doing house chores and playing with my kids at the park.

    I love the convenience of Walgreens Healthcare Clinics. We have one literally 1/2 mile away from our house and it makes me feel better knowing it’s there if we need it (we’ve visited it a few times already).
    I have been working out but really need to get my snacking under control – sitting at a desk all day does NOT help ones healthy eating habits, lol.

    I’m am also a meal skipper, but that’s mainly because I literally forget to eat because I get wrapped up in doing other things.
    These are some very viable tips. I’m right there with you trying to get back in shape.

    0 copays are fantastic because w/ kids, we spent too much time there.

  • http://simplybeingmommy.com Crystal

    I do several things to maintain a healthy lifestyle, the problem is I don’t do them consistently. I have to get better about that.

    i’ve never had to use our Clinic but it’s always so clean and the staff is friendly when I’m there for other things

    I have been a meal skipper often too. I try not to do that anymore, but sometimes I get busy and forget. Then I eat junk later.

    I so wish our Walgreens had a clinic in it. I keep hoping they will add one!

    Good grief, you’ve had a rough year! It sounds like you’re keeping a positive attitude though, which is certainly a big help. I used to dance 5-6 days a week, but now my exercise routine consists of toting and chasing little boys all day.

    I’m guilty of skipping meals, too….waaaay more often than I care to admit! :\

  • http://www.sippycupmom.com Melissa

    I love that there is this option. My Mom has used it several times!

    To maintain a healthy lifestyle I try to eat healthy and workout. Although I DO need to visit my doctor for my annual check up. You never can be too careful. :)

  • http://momspotted.com/ Jennifer @ Mom Spotted

    I try to get outside and exercise every day!

  • http://adventuresinallthingsfood.blogspot.com/ Andrea Kruse

    I am trying to get back at it. The baby is turning 1 and I no longer have a good excuse. Best of luck along your journey.

    Work out and healthy eating is what we’re trying to do to stay healthy and fit.

  • http://mommysnippets.com/ Marina

    My exercise routine comprises of running after the kids and overall we eat pretty healthy ;)

  • http://www.mikishope.com Michele

    I also tend to skip meals and actually do not eat enough. I don’t know if the Walgreens near where I live has a health care clinic but I will certainly check it out.

    It’s great that Walgreen’s can offer those services and come in especially handy when my family is traveling with my husband’s job and need to see a doctor.

  • http://www.mommyhasalife.com Mommy Has A Life

    I haven’t had to use one of these clinics yet, but they are nice to have on the just in case you can’t get into your doctor.

    Honestly, I am a huge advocate that hand washing helps to keep you well.

  • http://thatbaldchick.com Virginia @thatbaldchick

    The walk in clinics at Walgreens have helped us out on several family trips, where our physicians weren’t close by.

    I need to be better at eating healthy, but I do take care of myself by visiting my doctor regularly and exercising.

  • http://crazyadventuresinparenting.com Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting

    I work out, take vitamins, drink plenty of water and eat several small meals a day to help fuel my body without overdoing it. These clinics are pretty cool – the inside of your Walgreens looks EXACTLY like mine here.
