Wilson gets off two meds

Oct 18, 2012

Another busy week. I went to my family doctor this past week for a check-up. He could not believe how much weight I've lost. He was able to take me off two meds that I take for high blood pressure. We are waiting to see what the blood work tests say about my cholesterol and sugar. I've been borderline on both of those for a few years now.

The weather has been perfect for bike riding. I've rode about 80 miles this week. I plan on riding my bike outside as long as I can. I enjoy the fresh air after working in a foundry all day. I just wish it didn't get dark so early. When the time changes, I'm screwed.
I wish my shoulder felt better so that I could do more exercises that work my upper body. Between the shoulder and torn bicep there is not a whole lot I can do. I feel like I can't get a total workout because of my body being wore out from all the abuse it got during my power lifting days. It was fun when I competed, but my body is paying for it now.
