As per previous entries, I have been going to a gym and generally trying to improve myself physically, to make up for a 16 year slackfest that may have actually turned me into human Silly Putty were I not to have tried and stop the slide.
So here we are, nearly six months in. I made reference to being a sexy little pineapple by this point, all things being equal.
Well, I’m likely not a sexy little pineapple by most standards, but compared to how I was, things are a lot better. Drugs have brought my blood pressure from the “hypertensive” level to deep into “normal”. My acidity level of my blood is way down, and in fact I’m seeing a specialist about my kidneys so I avoid spending too many more “screaming at the moon” evenings in my future.
Weight is steady, strangely, although I definitely have significantly more muscle mass. Crap doesn’t just snap into a new shape so parts of me have something obviously muscular going on underneath Not So Muscular.
But what has definitely happened is I feel better. I feel healthier and I feel stronger. I added weight training to my regimen, and this past week, I added the Elliptical trainer into the mix. I couldn’t have imagined being able to lift, run, or move the way I can now, say, a year ago. Improvement has happened.
I am not going to fill this entry with endless details of my techniques, thoughts and theories. All I can say is that in five months, I’ve made something that wasn’t so good into something good. I will try to soon make it something great. The single most important thing has been making a decision and sticking with it.
