High of 72
I don't intend to turn this into my "diet blog" but there is some good news on that front. And since I haven't boated or fished in weeks I may as well blog about what is going on with me.
I spent the past week working and trying to figure out what I can and cannot eat. In a nutshell, I am consuming about one third of what I used to and I'm working out 6 days a week. I counting every calorie, fat gram, cholesterol and sodium gram too. I can't say I'll keep up the counting but the initial result cannot be disputed. Monday-Sunday, in 7 days, I lost 11 pounds. I don't pretend to this that pace will continue but if I can lose a pound or two a week I will easily make the Doctor happy in 11 weeks. He wanted me to lose 20 pound in 3 months and I'm half way there in a week. I walked 26 miles last week and started over with 5.1 today.
We bought a blood pressure machine and I am taking it morning and night. So far, so good. My morning readings have been around 111/70 and my evening readings averaging 118/71. That's way better than the 143/91 I had in his office.
I haven't had any luck getting the power steering ram out of the boat yet. I have tried but there seems to be a stuck pin that I can't gain the leverage to remove. After that pin, there's two more bolts that need a midget to remove them. I did manage to change my spark plugs and distributor cap. I ran the boat for about 15 minutes to charge the batteries yesterday.
This week I'm working close to home and sleeping in my own bed every night. Sunday I depart for Washington DC.
