Almost there... [Jun. 14th, 2012|03:27 pm]
John
26 minutes at 6 miles an hour yesterday. Some tiredness, not too bad.
30 minutes today, 15 at 5.5, then 15 at 5.7, today. The same - the only difference is, I took the aspirin *before* I exercised, and it seems to have prevented the headache.

Doctor has bumped my beta blocker dose up - doubled it - but she says that these drugs work with diminishing returns, so doubling it is the next logical step (even though I could take 1.5 as much).

I think I could jog at 6 miles an hour for 30 minutes (which many of you may remember was a big goal for me - hence, the title). I'm going to try it Saturday or Sunday.

My weight's definitely on a downward trend again. I've been under 230 every morning for a week, rather than bouncing between 225 and 235.

And my fasting blood sugar is dropping, at long last.

It's interesting - I think my weight stopped dropping, and my fasting sugar started getting wonky, when I stopped exercising as hard, because I realized how bad it made me feel. Now, well, now I can exercise hard, and things are starting to get better again.

Yes. But today, I found that three days in a row of fast-for-me jogging is too much :-).

PS: Passport is here. The books are kinda pretty.

Oh, that's excellent.

I have acquired a backup battery for my new camera, locally. And then found out the mail-order shop, which was flat out of stock and couldn't tell me when they'd get any, got some. So I'll have two backup batteries. Unless I decide to return the mail order one.

Oh, and contributions to the Sekrit Thing have started to come in. (-:
