Monday. Again. (A Health Update)

What with traveling, weather, and a general lack of interst, I didn’t get to the gym much last week. That’s not a habit I want to promote, so dark and early this morning I was out the door and on my way to the Y. Ugh.

At 6:00 a.m. I was on the road. The car has a temperature display and as I drove I watched it drop from the brisk 24 degrees that the car had been at in the garage  all the way down to ZERO by the time I reached Ambler.

I put in a bit over an hour on the elliptical this morning for a grand total of four and a half miles moved and 800 calories burned. A good beginning to the day.

I’m still fat, but I feel stronger than I can ever remember feeling, with improved posture and flexibility (thank you, Pilates!). My blood pressure is down where it’s supposed to be. My blood sugar is down where it’s supposed to be. My weight, well, it’s plateaued again, but I’ll keep working on that. I continue to eat little refined sugar or bread, though I have loosened up from my previous zero tolerance policy. Quantity continues to be an issue, but with the stress of the last novel off my back I’m managing that a bit better too.

All in all, my life is extraordinarily good. Hoping you are the same.
