The Wiwille workout.

I went to the doctor today as he was concerned about my blood pressure from an earlier visit. Turns out my reading was good this morning, but the results from my blood work were a bit disconcerting. I apparently have high cholesterol.

My doctor wasn't too concerned with the results, but we talked about solutions. I asked if he was going to put me on any medications to which he said no. He wasn't a fan of just prescribing me expensive pills to solve my issues it seemed, to which I was grateful. I'd rather do things the healthiest way if possible. So he recommended that I diet and exercise.

Damn.

I've gained a ton of weight since I made the move to the great state of Texas. When I say 'gained a ton of weight' I mean I've ballooned into a fatty boombaladdie. Consequently I have to turn down the deep fried goodness that the area's restaurants have to offer as well as the meats slathered in BBQ sauce. No more will I have Whataburger or the like. My diet's confined to vegetables, chicken, and fish cooked in ways that are inedible to most.

My doctor reiterated the fact that I need to exercise 24 times in the appointment. I guess I'll have to start going to the gym 4 times a week for 30-40 minutes of cardio. On top of that I plan to workout with the Kinect at home, do some boxing, maybe even dance....

I tell you, doctors are probably getting kick-backs for every patient they send to the gym or health food store.

I've gained a "ton" of weight since my move too. Not running up and down four flights of stairs umpteen times a day will give any girl a gut/butt.

I've started counting calories and watching fat intake. The first week I lost 6.9lb and that was with very little exercise. So, there is hope.

Good luck, my friend... you can do it!
