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.

Swimming Is Hard

I’ve been swimming the past three weeks off and on. Calling what I’m doing swimming is being generous…. It’s closer to drowning.

That is until today. I picked up a copy of Total Immersion swimming and have been working my way though the text. Today was my first attempt at using some of the techniques and…. Wow! I can really tell a difference. I can’t wait to see what else this book has to tell me…. Particularly in the area of breathing.
Also, the weight continues to drop…. In fact I finally had someone I hadn’t seen in a while remark that I looked thinner…. Yes!
