Sometimes in life you get a wake up call. That has recently happened to me. I went to the doctor last week. My work-up was abnormal. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and pre-diabetic syndrome. I felt like my working out 6-7 hours a week would make me healthy. It was a reality check. I am now on a low sodium, low sugar, and low cholesterol diet. Also I cut out the caffeine last week.
I have always told my kids that I I was going to love to 100 just to give them a hard time. I will too. It's just going to take aliitle more work than I had planned. I have the Waterloo Duathlon in Michigan this week-end. I am just goin to take it easy because I am not sure how my diet changes will affect me. I am just glad to go do it and enjoy the day.
