I had labwork last week and my annual physical today, so wanted to include the results in this challenge plan.
All good. Blood pressure good, cholesterol under 200, HDL a little down (travel and family stuff=not as much exercise these last few months), LDL a lot down, good healthy diet. My very thin sister is trying to diet away pre-diabetes, a family female affliction, my A1C was the lowest it's been in years! Woo Hoo! Daughter's B12 low, mine is soaring. Vitamin D is normal, but low normal, crazy because a big quantity is built into my multi, I take a few extra each week AND I live at the beach. Huh??!!
Weight annoyingly the same as it was last year and the year before that. Like, exactly the same. How can that be. Set point theory lives.
So, here goes.
I will attend my ST class, Abs class, and the new step class every Monday and Wednesday for two hours when I am in town. I will try to fit in some personal ST when I am on the road.
I will add cardio four of the other five days of the week.
I will replace one meal a day with a homemade protein shake when I am home.
I will eat oatmeal 3-5 days a week.
I will eat 5 freggies a day, or more.
I will eat red meat less than 4 times per month.
I will drink 8 glasses of water a day.
Less specific, I will track when I can, until after the middle of June, I'll be on the road more than home, so will do my best.
And finally, on May 14th, I will lose 5 pounds (I am having a colonoscopy, LOL) and try not to gain it back on May 15th.
