I can finally say I had a doctor's appointment and it was great! Dr. White was very pleased with how well I've been doing. I think I nearly shocked him- he wasn't expecting it at all, since I've been steadily trending downward these past eight months.
My weight is up a great deal. It's hard to cope seeing that number on the scale. A part of me wants to scream. My blood pressure is still low, but not nearly as low as last time thank God! He was actually pleased with my newfound vegan lifestyle, considering it's a vast improvement from how I've been living, or not living depending on how you look at it.
I'M APPROVED FOR EXERCISE!!!! YES! So happy about it :) As long as I don't lose weight, replace calories burned, and stay accountable to my team.
OH and I told my mom about my veganism. She was strangely OK with it. I think, like my team, she sees how it's been beneficial for me. As long as I'm eating, getting enough of everything, and keeping it right?
My mom suggested I do their TRX class at the Y with them. That's the first time she's ever suggested it, and it makes me happy that she did. It means she's okay with me exercising too. So I did that class with them and though it wasn't cardio, it was still good for strength building. I suspect I'll be feeling it tomorrow.
All in all, a good day :)
