Wake Up Call
Saturday, August 08, 2015
I have been walking pretty much most days for the last 3 years and thought I was eating healthy (at least most of the time) but my labs say otherwise. Went for my visit to my primary and instead of going down, my triglycerides had increased by almost 20 points and they are now over 200 (211). Dr. is talking about increasing my statin medicine but gave me till I return in December to get those numbers down. If I can up my exercise and improve on my eating I should be able to lower the number - at least that is what he and I are both thinking. I am going to aim for my 10K at least 6 days a week instead of 5. I have been aiming for 25 miles a week with my walking but will increase that to 30 and will work with my weights more often since I am not doing as much gardening in this heat.
This isn't going to be easy as I will be on a lengthy vacation from mid Sept. till early Nov. so I am going to have to try hard to get in my exercise and eat healthy while traveling.
