Went to Doc’s for a physical this week to see what was what, get some mileage from expensive health care plan I never use and look at blood chemistry. Well that was an eye opener. Scary for me. That explains my absence from posts. Ive been busy reading, walking and generally trying to right the sinking ship. Its been about a week and a half and things seem to be going fine. Ill be back shortly but I need to rectify this 18 stone 9 lbs overload I’m carrying about. That and get my BP down to something that will allow me to live a little longer. Hopefully I can become a shadow of my current self.
I’m basically adopting a primal regime and adding in walking exercise. Its not been an easy transition but he who suggests that restricting carbs and thus controlling hunger and insulin seems to know what is what. I have had to take a crash course in BMI, BMR, Primal Diet and safe exercise. Too much junk food and to many hours at the computer/radio have conspired to cause a wake up call at this end of the circuit. Hopefully this week will see a normalization of things and I can get back to posting about radio stuff.
If you want to know about Primal just google Primal Eating or similar. No craving going on and aside from short walks being a strain initially, things are okay. I used to run about 30 miles per week about 20 years ago so this is nothing new for me. Just amazing how accustomed one can become with a sedentary lifestyle. But we are on the mend now.
Now if I can find a good set of shoes that do not generate blisters and a good BP Monitor all will be right with the world. Here’s hoping…
