  • Primal Journey to health - Glass0wl

    Well following my blood results yesterday and the need to watch what I eat I thought I would start this journal.

    So first off my starting stats

    Age: 59
    Female
    Height: 5 foot 1 inch
    Weight: 121 lbs

    Total cholesterol : 6.9
    HDL: 2.21
    LDL: 4.4
    Triglycerides : 0.73
    Cholesterol / HDL ratio : 3.1

    Calculated risk 9.95%

    I have over the last 8 months lost 30 lbs, changed from a total sedentary office life to a retired active / exercise life. Should have started this journal earlier as I think it would have been more interesting.

    Meals today:

    B: avocado, crab, salad
    D: redbush with almond milk.

    Supper: pâté and salad with a banana/strawberry treat.

    As for lunch hmm not sure it's a meal out, I am spending the day at our local country fair, walking round all the exhibits, craft tents, watching the show jumping, best sheep, best cow, ferret racing. Of course I will spend time in the food tent and will get some food for lunch and snacks.

    No normal walk today, I will be walking into town and back with my backpack and then around and around the showground; be interesting to see how far I do walk.

      Not sure where they get their figures from, will have to check that out but over 20% and doctors get worried apparently. It has an age element, genetic predisposition as well so me only getting 9% I can't be all that bad

        Ok so I didn't derail myself yesterday, thought I may the mood I was in.

        Gorgeous hot day, maybe too hot for walking, started walking at 10am and got home at 4 pm, didn't stop during the day.

        Food was:

        Boar sausage in a bun - threw bun away
        Organic beef burger in bun - you guessed threw bun away
        Strawberries and clotted cream - well I am at the heart of clotted cream tea country
        Then I derailed a tad

        One white chocolate magnum
        Two half pints of pear cider


        Today is a new day and I intend to behave

        Planned food

        Supper: avocado and crab salad
        Treat: banana and kiwi and lime frozen pot with a tab spoon of home made yogurt
