“Can I press the ding-dong?” – That’s what BoyGeeding asks every time he wants to ring the doorbell.
For the first time in my life, I donated blood yesterday. It’s something my doctor is asking me to do twice a year because my blood is too thick.
The blood work from my physical arrived yesterday and it was a bit discouraging. I’ve changed my lifestyle over the past year and a half by exercising a lot more and eating better, despite what all my BBQ posts may lead you to believe. My weight is down, dropped body fat and added muscle (I’m now seeing veins pop in my forearms and biceps), cut down sugar and saturated fats, and added a lot of fiber to my daily intake (I’m averaging 30 grams a day) through vegetables, grains, and psyllium husk. Some of my numbers are just right confusing. I know it’s a marathon and not a sprint, but sometimes you just want to nail it end when it comes to your health.
Interestingly enough, my Vitamin D levels are too high.
WifeGeeding is making me get rid of the shorts that no longer fit me. When I put them on, they barely cling to my hips, and when I wiggle, they fall.
