Holy Cow

Just had my annual “ScoreHealth” done.

I weigh 20 pounds more than I did this time last year. And my cholesterol is 30 points higher.

Sheesh. I knew I’d put on weight this year but didn’t realize I’d basically maintained the same weight for three years and then packed on 20 this year!

The biggest lifestyle changes this year seem to be

  1. brewing my own beer and
  2. DirecTV.

Now I don’t believe DirecTV makes me fat. Although I’d like to believe it. I’m still exercising very regularly and drinking fluids. But while watching TV, I must be grabbing snacks or desserts. Or beer.

On top of that, they now tell me that now that I’m in my mid-30’s my metabolism is probably slowing down.

Just when I need it more than ever, it leaves!

Oh well. Looks like I need to do some of that good-ol’ portion control and limiting of processed foods in 2008.

*sigh* Self discipline sucks.

But it’s gotta be better than type-2 diabetes.
