I have been slack again...

and not posted for a while. I have however continued to do my excercise but have not been so good at the diet side.

I have been doing a lot of research lately into sleep apnea and talking to doctors and experts in the field etc. And I found out some really interesting stuff being that my higher blood pressure is caused from the sleep apnea because the oxygen levels in my body are so low my blood pressure goes up to help combat this. It also makes your stress hormone levels increase as well as your insulin levels which makes it difficult to lose weight. So all of my issues are in one little bundle of stopping breathing when I am asleep.

At least I know now that I am not falling apart and that once I go on the CPAP machine all of these things should rectify themselves and I should lose some weight. Yay!

I must say though those machines are damn expensive and you can't hire them out indefinately so it means I need to purchase one. At least they offer interest free payment plans.

So it is only onwards and upwards from here. I am also thinking of following the Curves diet plan but that is another post.

See you soon
