Getting Back In The Saddle & Pushing DH's Limits!

Saturday, February 22, 2014

So far this year I have not achieved what I wanted.
Blood pressure readings that have achieved 190+/100+ At times!!!
Long days at work ( not the cause of the high blood pressure ).

I now have a week off and, having started treatment on the blood pressure, decided it was time to get back to things.
Today I have achieved :
3 x Leslie Sansone miles (37mins) and 35 mins on the treadmill at 3.5mph. emoticon

Those of you that know me well, know DH is a truck driver. Man, meat eater, definitely not likely to turn into a vegitarian!
We enjoy a risotto - made with white arborio rice (I know, don't say anything, but we've enjoyed it). Today, I swapped the rice for - pearl barley!! Risky move!! Oh, that was nice and, guess who finished what I left on my plate!! Do that again then!!

    Hey, Doll

what is this that you are exhausting yourself, work is work, you need to pace yourself....ok and I hope that you are eating. Can you not have left overs from the night before, just cook a bigger portion? That is what I do, I know if can be boring, but instead of living on crisps and chocs, it is a better option for me.

I will check on your later!

    Hey doll love the new piccie, and the hat!

please pace yourself when back to work, hope you had a good weekend, still have problems. By accident I clicked on the drivers advert on SP and it has caused me nothing but problems, so please be careful. The Otimizer pro is still embedded in my computer, although I have downloaded antivirus Avart.

Anyway well done for all your fantastic fitness achievement, you are a star
