B12

B12 blood work results
In acceptable levels, yet we are working to increase the level…before it has a chance to dip below acceptable.

Seven personal health vibrancy pillars:

  1. Aerobic
  2. Anaerobic
  3. Nutrition
  4. Rest
  5. Flexibility
  6. Core
  7. Motivation

Which do you pick as the number one priority?

PS. Part of nutrition is annual blood work to see what can’t be visibly seen.

Annual blood draw this morning

Walt Disney picking up trash
Walt was never a picture of excellent health. Not judging. And each of us has to decide what efforts we are committed to physically.

Annual blood draw this morning. Annual physical two days ago. 

Yesterday and tomorrow, cardio, strength, stretching, and core.

Every day this week, every day period, focus on nutrition, sleep, and motivation, in addition to cardio, strength, flexibility, and core.

Surprised to learn vitamin D was low

Walgreens receipt
Love the mundane beauty of a simple, ordinary receipt and moment in time (yesterday). Purchased a bottle of Vitamin B12 and one of vitamin D3.

 

Rode bike to Dr. Patel’s office to review bloodwork and CT scan results.

Overall, great results.

Vitamin D and B12 are low.

Dr. Patel recommended D3 2000 IU and B12 1000mg.

Do you get giddy for your blood work results?

quest diagnostics portal
2018 is missing because it’s been two weeks since the blood draw…have been waiting so anxiously and was concerned the bloodwork report got messed up or lost.

 

Do you get giddy for your blood work results?

Probably a no for most of us – at least for me for the past decade – ever rising cholesterol.

Is it possible to reverse our yearly results-anxiety?

Yes, for example…

Concerned enough to try better habits over the past couple years.

These assorted eating habit changes led to a dramatically different cholesterol report last year.

Dramatic.

Shocking.

Inspiring.

Total cholesterol under 200 and LDL under 130 for the first time in at least a decade.

Factors:

  • eliminate sugar
  • dramatically increase fresh fruit intake
  • eliminate fast food
  • drastically reduced processed food intake
  • virtually eliminate protein bars (was eating four a day)
  • dramatically increase super-food intake (avocados, certain berries and nuts)

Yesterday’s results yielded highest HDL (71) ever and lowest LDL (102) ever.

This is just the tip of the unhealthy America iceberg

 

Who wouldn’t want their young child to know from an early age that neglecting their health will greatly reduce their quality of life, not just physically, but in their emotional, mental, career, and home sectors.
