Diet/Fitness Update

Blessings Darlings!

Well .... uh ....  you see ..... I'm starting over on this diet/fitness stuff.  I let it go, again. I'm calling it another practice round.  This time will be for real!  Yeah, that's the ticket.

Weight is up.  Endurance down. Don't know what's gong on with blood pressure.  I assume my cholesterol and triglycerides are at their usual high levels. 

Today I ate well and got back to beginning levels of exercise.  Still HATE HATE HATE to exercise.  Still don't have the knees or endurance to bike to the store instead of using exercise bike.  Current plan is to walk tomorrow. 

I've been meaning to take some psyllium fiber supplements before meals, but keep forgetting to do that.  It's not only supposed to help you feel fuller but also block absorption of dietary cholesterol.  OTOH, my cholesterol and triglyceride issues are not just diet but also genetics.  Still, it's something to try that's cheap and doesn't have a litany of bad side effects.  Unlike most of the cholesterol drugs on the market.

That's what's up here today.

Frondly, Fern

  1. Good luck Fern! Have you tried fish oil pills? I take 3 a day. It helps tremendously with my cholesterol and dropped my triglycerides big time! Just a thought ;)
