Diet Log - July 19, 2008

Weighed in this morning at 190 pounds, up a pound from yesterday.

I stuck to the beef jerky diet yesterday, read my review for "Buffalo Bills Beef Jerky - Premium Hickory". I also drank about 3 1/2 cans of V8, and a couple bottles of water.

I'm still getting that "grogginess" I wrote about earlier, and some slight headaches. I'm also feeling some tightness in my neck the past couple of days. And I notice that after sitting down for a long period, and then standing up, my vision blacks out for a few seconds. That grogginess has largely kept me from exercising, though I did mow the lawn yesterday.

I wondered if my blood pressure has shot up due to the high salt content of eating beef jerky. We actually have a blood pressure monitor that my wife bought for herself sometime ago. I took three readings one after another..

111/74
101/75
99/75

Those are all within the normal blood pressure limits. So, I don't think the high sodium has affected me at all.

I've been off of diet sodas for a couple of days now.

I wondered if maybe I have some kind of bacterial infection, because I noticed I feel kinda hot. Albeit, we have't been running the air conditioner in the house until it gets up to about 88 inside. But, I've dealt with hot temperatures all my life living in Southern Califonia. I just don't think that's it.

I'll see about setting up an appointment with my doctor on Monday.
