A place for my collection of ramblings, musings and general rants or spleen venting sessions
The BP machine is mine for a week.
And already it's pissed me off ;
>No batteries supplied
>Instructions for another model
>Cuff that only just squeezes over my guns
>Out of date calibration
Christ on a bike that lot alone would send my blood pressure through the roof.
Hey ho, lets see what we see.
That's my problem I like a drink of an evening.
My current alcohol intake for 1 week is;
1 bottle whisky
2 bottle of wine
12 bottles of Hobgoblin
That probably accounts for loads of sugar, loads of calories and loads of units
So I reckon a bit of cutting down is in order, not quitting it all together, that'd be daft. So from Monday I'm limiting my weekly booze shop to;
1 bottle whisky
4 bottles of hobgoblin
And they're a bit, well, meh nothing life threatening, yet, but the normal stuff most folk know about.
Kidney function; Normal
Cholesterol; 5 - 6
Weight; Too much, OK OK 130Kgs
Smoking; Quit it
Alcohol; Half it
OK so my BP is high, and my cholesterol is borderline, although he did say my lipoproteins were slightly elevated but probably down to the booze.
He's given me a month to straighten up
Funny little buggers ain't they?
Bloody things get everywhere, well except black coffee can you live on coffee alone, it'd save a whole heap of hassle down the road?
In preparation for tomorrow I've been playing with an app on the old mobile http://www.myfitnesspal.com/apps to see what my intake is
432 Calories in a jacket spud, a small one mind
240 in a milkshake
700 in a bottle of vino fuck my boots
Well time has caught up with me, 40 this year, and the doc is worried about pretty much every aspect of my general health.
To this end I was shipped off to have an armful drawn and get to have a full run down and results on Thursday.
I'm not looking forward to it one little bit, I smoke what I like, drink what I like and haven't sought out exercise in many a year.
What he will tell me probably won't come as a surprise, but
