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
Height: 5 foot 1 inch
Weight: 121 lbs
Total cholesterol : 6.9
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.
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.
As previously mentioned lipids are very good .......but anyway ......

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.
