The Physical….or Wow, am I in Bad Shape!

I had my physical yesterday and will receive the blood work in a few weeks. I’m not excited to see the craziness that will be my cholesterol levels and how they compare to my past results.

There were some immediate results however,,,,,the BMI was 27.5 and a body-fat percentage of 21.7%  Ouch!   So, the image I Googled below is just about right.

So what you’ve heard is true.  Pizza will put on the pounds!  😦

It’s time to rethink this:

I Have A Heart Attack In My Future….

Image….Were the words my doctor started my physical with today. My blood work numbers were off the charts!  HDL, LDL, Cholesterol,  Triglycerides……you name it, they were HIGH. I thought they were elevated last year…..but this was a big step (jump) in the wrong direction.

My Doc suggested (strongly) that I get on medication.

I convinced him to give me three months to try something different.  I’ve read The Engine 2 Diet.  I’ve read Rich Roll and the Skinny Bitch.  I know what to do……I have to DO IT.

Time to Eat Vegan and Workout Strong.
