Fasting glucose this morning was 93 (I'm happy with anything below 100). Weight 172.0, a small loss. Office is closed so I don't know if I'll get a blood pressure reading today. I want to because I felt it a little high yesterday. Hopefully I didn't celebrate getting off of my meds too soon. At least I still have a month's worth.
Today was weight day. The gym was fairly empty and I was letting myself get distracted thinking about the blog and all.
For now this is what I'm doing with 3 sets of 20 reps.
Leg Press 110
Ab Machine 70 (added 20 pounds)
Back Extension 90
Lat Pulldown 50
Chest Press 50
Overhead Press 30
On the 16th I go 15 reps and start increasing weight. I hope to get to 170 before the 16th since as I start going heavier I should increase muscle mass and my weight will be less helpful as a measure.
I've decided that I will take pictures at milestones. So every 5 pounds, so 170, 165, 160, etc. Also every inch lost, so 41, 40, etc. And when I'm off another med.
