Welcome to all readers.
It's never too late to change your life for better.
I'm back on the straight and narrow .....maybe!
Today is John's 77th Birthday. We had dinner out last night with our daughter and Rotorua son. Greg came up on his motor-bike. It has a side-car which enables him to ride it in spite of being a paraplegic. He has adapted it to all hand controls and uses velcro to keep his feet on the pedals just to be sure they are safe. The first time he saw him do this I freaked out but I'm so delighted he can do something he loves I don't say anything, much.
For some reason I'm terribly tired and had a nanna nap this afternoon. My eating is not planned but I'm not doing anything unusual for me. I'm disappointed that I let things go a bit after our trip to New Plymouth and so end the month exactly where I began, weight wise. I manage well on the months when we have no big adventures. Somehow I have to learn how to manage when away from home for more than a few hours. in 10 days we are heading off to Christchurch for 12 days. That will be a challenge.
In the meantime I am going to do what? Weigh and count? I'll see how I feel tomorrow. I'm not overeating and that is the main thing. I could be eating too many carbs some days. I like to stay moderately high protein and I enjoy my veggies. I'm not so sure about the high fat though.
I have an appointment with my doctor on Monday. I don't think there is anything new but I need to renew my medication and I will get my blood pressure checked. Maybe it would be a good idea to fast so I can have blood tests done while I'm there.
