I saw the Doc on Monday.
he results were better than I expected, but still not very good.
- I have to consult with a Urologist about the kidney stones.
- My weight increased again.
- Blood pressure was very good, considering I was out of one of my pills for a couple of days.
- I’m not diabetic, though my A1c has gone up a little.
- And my potassium was down again.
I’m taking potassium and have another blood test next week to see if I took enough or need more. I’ll be ordering the CT-Scan results to take with me to the Urologist and I’ll pick those up the same day I have the blood test done.
The weight issue and A1c are related, so I’m doing “strict Keto” which means a strict cut-off of 20g Carbs per day, no matter what! If I’m still hungry, have an egg! I’ve set a 30-day goal for that. It helps that I got some MCT oil in, so my body can transition to burning ketones faster.
The garden is doing well.
No, nothing is planted yet. I cleared one whole row, about a foot wide by 12 feet long. It’s a lot of work! I missed 2 days of watering over the weekend, and the soil is responding better now since I’ve been watering nearly every day. I pulled big clumps of grass yesterday and today.
Nancy, the head of the garden, was there today and offered me a small plot, as well, for fall since it’s taking me some time to clear the bed and the season is advancing. I took her up on it! It’s already cleared except for some scattered nutgrass, which is edible, but probably not allowed on my diet.
I’ll turn the soil over during this week and start planting what I have: lettuce, snap peas, kale, chard. I need beets and more chard. I wish I had some onion seeds, too. That would give me some nice spring onions.
Most of my seeds are for a spring/summer garden, so gathering the fall seed collection is my next focus.
I’ll have to keep clearing my bed, too, so I guess I’ll be getting more fit as time goes on. I could certainly use that!
Updated an older Page.
I updated an older page, finding a few typos and phrasings I didn’t like. Nothing major.
That’s it for today.
P.S. I was able to go through the comments and approve most of them. Thank you, all!
There were still some wayward porn or “want to help you with your website” comments that I deleted.
