Vertigo needs to be Vertigone!
It has been an interesting couple of weeks as my vertigo has intensified. I spent Thursday afternoon in the emergency room prooving via a battery of tests that I was indeed NOT having a heart attack. I was freed after four hours with the promise of a referral for a test for which “insurance likely will not pay.” Well kids, that was Thursday and this is Monday and prepare to put on your surprise face….no call to let me know if said test is or is not happening. While the quadrillion dollar medical establishment continues to discard me, tomorrow I am seeing a chiropractor and then an essential oils guru who will be doing a “30 minute balancing session.” No. I have no idea what the hell that means.
Did not make it to the gym last week. Not once. So irritated that I bought a bodyweight workout book by Mark Lauren to make up for it. Read the man’s bio on marklauren.com cuz the dude is a beast. The workouts in his book plus the weights and bands I have at home leave me no excuse. If I topple over in my own basement, no harm, no foul. I hope to return to the gym at work.
Diet? Spot on. Down to 198 from 216. Ever look at those height/weight charts? Seriously? They must want us all to look like tongue depressors in tennis shoes. The chart would have me at between 165 and180. I am nearly 6’4″. Oddly enough I don’t want to look like a Middle-Schooler.
Protein. Turns out I am not eating enough? Mark Lauren suggest 1.5g per pound of desired bodyweight. Just try finding Paleo-approved supplemental protein (beyond toting a side of buffalo to work each day). I bought four different types of protein drinks today.
To wrap up this rant…. vertigo has got to git, scoot, vamoose! My job wants to fly me to Memphis in two weeks for a meeting. Vertigo on a plane….won’t that be a good time? “Flight Attendant….yes…is it too early for a bloody Mary???”
