It has been eleven days since “Doctor’s orders” are to get my cholesterol and blood pressure lower. The attempted diet is going fairly well, yes I’m cheating a bit because I’m really hungry. This is my protein charged lunch from Thursday, white meat chicken salad, red beets, and chickpeas.
It was actually pretty good, a tall coca-cola would have been nice but I stayed with green tea and lemon.
The big question I ask myself is how did I get here? Since I’ve eased into retirement I eat more at home taking control of the salt and sugars. In the past, I would pull back on calories when I noticed my dresses and skirts getting a bit snug. That’s when it dawned on me. Since I am only working from home now I wear comfortable clothes like jogging pants and leggings. The wider I get the more they stretch.
With all kidding set aside, I am serious about taking care of my health. Any tips for these common ailments would be appreciated.
