I have been spending a lot of time on Spark People in an attempt to get support to lose weight. I have enjoyed it and learned a lot. I am hopeful weight will come down.
My blood pressure has been running high which is really worrisome. I found out I am ADD so it may be the medication. I am going to purchase some Vitamin D and start taking it as I read that it may help with BP and that it is hard to actually get Vitamin D with our sunscreen use and position of the sun during parts of the year.
I am starting to cook more which has been kind of enjoyable. I have printed out some healthier recipes and hope to have a 21 day cycle of dependable recipes for us to use. I have found quite a few veggie recipes to use and am making two to three different ones for each dinner since we are supposed to eat 5 to 11 servings of fruit and vegetables a day.
I am soon to get my blood drawn to find out just how bad a shape I am in. I am considering doing it at two different places. One to have my doctor run per her instructions and one to send to Life Extension (I heard about this through a Suzanne Somers interview) so that I have two pieces of information to use. I think the life extension one concentrates more on hormones and nutrients but I’m not for sure. I need to find out about that soon.
