Anniversaries for today

Today is the 7th anniversary of when I first started blogging. Blimey, where has the time gone and how am I still managing to find things to write about?

Today Ruby is 8 months old!

Yesterday I went for a health check. Apparently we are supposed to have them every 5 years. I had my flu jab with a local pharmacy last week and they agreed to do it as I couldn't remember when I had my last one.

Anyway, all seems well. My BMI is 22, blood pressure 115/69,  heartbeat regular (say what, I have an irregular heartbeat problem so maybe that is also changing) and my total cholesterol is 5.54 (good stuff almost double what it should be so that is very good).

She wasn't concerned about it being just over 5 as my eating and exercise lifestyle means my cholesterol level can be up to 10. There is no way I want it up there. At my last check is was 7.5 so a good reduction.

So all the tests she did,  mean my CVD (cardiovascular disease) risk is 4.7%. Hopefully that holds true down the line.

None of the above means I won't have a heart attack or stroke but hopefully, I am doing the right things to try and reduce my risk.

Have a good weekend everyone!


  1. Good results, well done. Happy anniversary.

    1. Thanks. Got to try and keep on top of things.

  2. Happy blog anniversary. Great results which surely must help to keep you as fit as possible for as long as possible.

  3. Happy Anniversary on blogging. Happy 8 month birthday to Ruby.

    My cholesterol is a bit high so I am trying with diet and exercise to change that number.

    God bless.

  4. How strange - just posted about my 7 year blog anniversary as well. Cheers to us! :-)
