I'm in the same boat with you all with BP and BS, just to name 2 of my challenges. I have borderline BP, not medicated for it but dr. is watching. A couple times when they took it just prior to eye surgery it went up more and I was concerned. Of course I was super stressed with that guy's knife awaiting me.
BS has been 105 fasting for the past 3 tests, so over a year. Dr. is making noises about that also. It's very stressful, like Damocles' dagger hanging over my head.
I was making great progress with my leg muscle strength. Could tell the difference riding my bike around the neighborhood. We don't have any hills, thank goodness, but when the wind blows against us it can get tough. I started out only being able to do 1st gear, then some 2nd gear. Now I can do the whole neighborhood in 2nd pretty easily and some of it in 3rd.
Since my eye surgeries I haven't been out on the bike. Hate to admit, but we don't use helmets. I intend to get one now because the last thing I need is a blow to my head. I'm afraid I've probably lost all the muscle strength I've gained. So..guess I'll be starting over.
I did manage to lose a few pounds over these last few weeks. Pain has a way of making me nauseous. And nothing sounded good to eat. As soon as the news on my eyes was better and the upset eased I began to get my appetite back, so now the struggle continues.
How I wish all these healthy habits were easier.
