It's been a year since the neck surgery. It's time to quit wallowing in self pity and get on with life. I have been utterly stagnant, if not a little backwards, in the health improvement department.
A couple of weeks ago I had my annual bloodwork done. Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels were still high. About the same as last year. LDL's were increased. For the first time in my life my heart health risk ratio has risen above the magic 3.3 number. It's telling me WAKE UP, LINDA!!!!
I do follow the B non-secretor diet about 85%. But I have not really been rigid about how may times a week I eat a certain food. So, for now the grains are abolished (and I do love those spelt pretzels!). I'm adopting a low carb version of the diet. Also, I'm going to be more diligent about aerobic exercise. As much as it makes my right side burn, I just have to get through it. Pilates makes it burn more, but somehow I am able to drag myself there twice a week.
I think those two things will keep me busy this spring. I am taking advantage of the NAP offer to order the genotype supplements for three months to be able to get SWAMI-ed. I am pretty sure there will be some changes once that happens. I can't wait. I've been wanting to be SWAMI-ed for a long time. I just can't justify the expense of flight, hotel, car, and all that.
Thanks for visiting.
