More health related victories
Saturday, November 14, 2015
I am trying to bust my current plateau. I had been doing fairly well--but then we were on vacation without a scale for a week. I THOUGHT I was getting LOTS of exercise--we walked a lot, did weights, had 2 water aerobics classes--but I gained 4-5 pounds. I am getting them off again SLOWLY but I am supposed to list health related victories. So
--I still have excellent blood pressure--like 90/60 at 58 years old!
--I take NO medications at all--at 58 years old.
--My biggest physical complaint is the varicose veins that I am seeing on my left leg--no pain, just looks "old". (My sister has had surgery 2x for hers and she is younger so I am NOT complaining.)
--I can push for the whole water aerobics class and I can do most of the Les Mils Power Pump class -- not all yet but pretty good till we get to shoulders.
Guess that is a pretty good list--even if I can't get to goal weight (145--gives me a BMI of less than 25), I can stay pretty well around 155--up and down 2 pounds around that but the BMI is more than 25--not a lot but more than I want...
