Cold outside

Snow in Burque! Saw a car up on the sidewalk on the way to the gym. It was a slow drive.

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
Rows 50

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.

You know you're on the right track when you make it to the gym through snow and icy roads.
