After my regular 3 monthly blood test, my visit to the Doc's was reasonably encouraging.
The number crunching (above) seems OK, my blood pressure was surprisingly normal, and whilst with the Doc' I even had a flu jab. Everything is under control.
So how do I manage to stay in such fine fettle? I don't really deprive myself of anything, I don't overdo things, I take plenty of exercise, and I watch my weight.
I also follow what many would call a 'Mediterranean Diet'. Plenty of fresh fruit and veg', plenty of Olive and Walnut oils, and a liberal sprinkling of Vin Rouge.
I NEVER buy 'ready meals' of any sort. We eat veggie one day a week, and I try to follow the 5:2 diet as much as I can.
It all seems to be working.
p.s. Any nurses reading this, please don't look too closely at the figures above; or if you do, don't tell me.
