WELLNESS CHECK
Not good –  but I knew that… I have been feeling crummy for a long time and here is the black and white of it.   The meds only work for so long before we have to increase them… I was down to the 150s / high 90s but it’s right back where it was.

Eating more meals today was…. Interesting… ๐Ÿ˜‚

At the beginning of the day I thought there is no way I’m going to be able to eat all this today and I felt like I was just kind of constantly making something and then cleaning it up and then making something and then cleaning it up… ๐Ÿ˜‚…

Now I don’t have a whole lot going on so it was fine but I was surprised that by about my 8.00 meal – I was actually a little hungry, which for me is unusual.   Feed the metabolism…

I made it through Day 1 with everything that I had pre tracked and hit all of my targets which is fantastic.   I did take a look at what my heart rate was after eating so I had a baseline to go from and it was pretty much what I thought it was – in the low 130s.   Now keep in mind this is just sitting at the table doing nothing.  

I had a lot of very simple things – the only thing that I even used to cook today was the air fryer twice and then the microwave for the shrimp and zucchini.   Everything else was just as is…. Easy peasy…

So how do I feel at the end of Day 1?

Medical stuff aside –  I think this is certainly doable with some planning.   I am looking forward to getting my BP and HR down so I can see what effect this has when I’m not in a bad reaction state. The only thing I am going to change is I am going to try 5 instead of 6 meals tomorrow… It was a bit of a hard press today.

I also need to change my volume eating habit (eat more lower calorie foods) – so I am going to balance smaller volume, higher calorie items so I’m not eating so much to fill my metrics. Definite change…
