BP = 150/80
Blood sugar = 172
I’m being forced to eat healthier and it sucks. –Like I’m the only person ever to say that.
This is my plan for the next few days:
For breakfast I kick off my day with a big bowl of oatmeal, sweetened with raisins instead of sugar and with unsweetened almond milk instead of half and half.
I like oatmeal, but not when I’m forced to eat it.
Lunch is an open face sandwich with tomato, avocado and pickled red onion on toasted sourdough. No mayo or butter, the avocados provide the fat.
It tastes pretty good, but it’s not filling. I can eat one and be looking for something to eat within twenty minutes. Which sucks
This is supper. It’s a black bean salad, with beans, corn, tomato, cilantro and green onion. With lime and olive oil dressing. (I’ll probably add jalapenos and avocado)
I need to get my weight under 250lb, but I mostly need to exercise more in order to build muscle mass and to improve my cardio.
It took a long time to get this far out of shape, and being old makes it a lot tougher to make much improvement. But if my knees don’t hurt quite so much and I can get off or at least reduce the number of pills I take, it’s a win.
