Day four soda free! Today I walked for two hours with a pace under 17 min/mile ~ 16.7! I always use to walk about 17.1 every time! I expect my new glasses tomorrow. My last Doctor visit my blood pressure was 125/87 down from 140/90. I have had heart disease in my family history so this was great news. I have been cutting down on salt in my nutrition. I use to have between 3,500 -4,000 mg per day. Now I am down to 2,000 - 2,700 every day! I think this will help with the blood pressure too. By the way, cutting out the diet pepsi helped a lot bringing the salt down! Win -win situation. Now I drink black ice tea and water! My weight at the Doctor visit was 152 down from 175, during my visit in January, which caused me to come back to SP! AND I am so glad I did! I have connected to so many positive and encouraging sparkers!
I am looking forward to my Aunt Jean and Uncle Ed's Golden Anniversary in Denver on June 1st! There should be about 80 friends and family at a three day bash! I go Friday May 31st through Sunday June 2nd. I am so looking forward to this vacation/celebration!
