I completed four days of Insanity. Tonight I will be doing day 5. So far so good. I find that the workout is a challenge.  I am sticking to it. In fact I look forward in dropping a few extra pounds. Anything to get rid of high blood pressure.

I had to get to the point where I had to want to do it for me.

Well it was my breaking point. As a diabetic I stress about my feet and legs the most. However, the meds I suppose to be taking for my high blood pressure  made my ankles and calf swell badly. For me I can’t handle that. I stress, what if it isn’t the meds? What if this or that. Suppose my skin breaks open and I get an infection. I can’t deal with that.

So, I’m changing somethings to be around a little long. It all starts with me.


I guess this is a before of me that I am willing to show. I don’t know how much weight I am willing to drop, but long as I get rid of HBP (High Blood Pressure) !

I have not blogged for over a year. Not sure where to start either.

I am  challenging myself to loose weight to get my blood pressure under control. I don’t like the new meds my doctor put me on. My ankles and calf are always swollen. That isn’t right nor cute. Never had that happen to me until the meds. Now I am scared to take the meds. This was one of my breaking point. You would think being a diabetic on insulin would have made me say I want to take less insulin, I need to do something. Nope! Not at all!

What made me break was the tight feeling I got from the side effects from the meds. I get scared when it comes to my feet and legs. I need my legs to kick. Besides this is interfering with my martial arts life style. Plus I don’t want a stroke or heart attack from high blood pressure.  My question to myself was this….. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

That may seem like a simple or easy question. It isn’t!

I ordered the Insanity videos. Maybe this will whip me up in shape and to get rid of the high blood pressure meds.  Not worried about the insulin,  I have a feeling I will be taking less dosage once I finish.

Today I got my insanity package. This is my day 1 of a 60 day challenge. I did the fit test.

One I am glad I take martial arts. Cause I would have not made it as far as I did. I think I did okay, but I still doubt myself.

One day at a time.

And one more thing. I hate when I read blogs from someone loosing weight and they don’t really say what they did to loose it. Just a brief I change my eating style, and joined the gym. No real details at all.

Well I am going to give you the good and bad. I will try to log my meals, my exercises, and my thoughts.

I just had a small vent on my mind. One I got this letter today from a doctor I have been going to for 10 years. I have  had my ups and my downs with my medical history.  this letter said this   DUE TO YOUR LACK OF TRUST IN  MY JUDGEMENT FOR YOUR CLINICAL PROBLEM, I WOULD ADVISE YOU TO FIND A DIFFERENT PRIMARY CARE PRACTICE FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN.

Oh snaps to that right there. Let’s  do some judgment trust on this one.  Let’s get something clear. I have a lawyer. We are suing a drug company for damages I received from taking this drug. This drug was told to be good. It was also thought to be good. My primary care doctor prescribed this dangerous drug. This drug that caused me more damages then I could ever imagine. Was he practicing with the best of my care. Maybe he was brought off by the drug companies. I really don’t know. Now that  I got a copy of my records. It is a problem because I am suing a company for damages and I obtain my records because of this. Oh wow! you sent me this letter because you are an idiot.

This leads me to wonder how many people died in your care. You know I won’t complain because this is the best day of my life. You not being a part of it and now I can find a real doctor. Yes, I said it! The last few years all you wanted to do was prescribe this drug or that. Depression even came up. It was not me it was you.  People go through things in life and hearing you have to take insulin is not a joyful moment.  You tried to give me cholesterol meds to take. I had it checked with my endocrinologist and it was fine. If I would have taking that meds. Who knows what would have happen to me.

I can’t believe I am wasting my time blogging about you. I wish I could sy your name. I wish I could out you right now.  However, you caught my attention long enough to blog about you. Even though you are in the Washington DC metropolitan  area. I hope you some day stop being bought and become a real DOCTOR!

Thank you DOCTOR BROUGHT, for opening up my eyes.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for anyones doctors. You should know your doctor is a bunch of crap. I knew mines for 10 years so, what does that say? Even if you were to ask your doctor, if you sued a drug company would you stop seeing me. They would lie because money talks and bull shit walks every time.  What I would say is research any meds prescribe before you take them. Know what you are taking!

If your doctor sends you a letter like mines. Go to their office nd sy that is the best thing you have done for me. Thank you for saving my life.
