So I’m finally taking advantage of my Medicare and have had lots of lab work done with other tests schedules (mammo, bone density, thyroid). So far I found out I have high blood pressure and am pre-diabetic. Neither came as a big surprise because I am over weight and don’t exercise enough. Anyway, I’m now on high blood pressure medication and need to lose weight and exercise. Fortunately I’ve already been working on the diet, no processed sweets and more fruits and vegetables. I’ve also been walking the last week. This was before the news. Anyway, definitely give me incentive to “do the right thing” and take care of myself.
Down to 166.8 today – slow and steady wins the race. Has been a couple of weeks with sugary foods like cookies, cakes, etc. Just have been eating fruit (watermelon, blueberries, strawberries and bananas).
