If you’re completely satisfied with your health, don’t read this article. This is not for you. Give yourself a pat on the back, and save yourself the scrolling. For the rest of you, approach what I’m about to say with an open mind, and maybe you can come out of this a fitter person.
This article really is about getting the conversation with yourself started. It doesn’t talk about long term, re-evaluating periodically. A plateau is a more obvious sign about re-evaluating – not too late, but can be.
I’ve made some changes in diet in the last six months or so. Weight loss is part of the training agenda, while noticing that I should probably eat more protein. But the changes also appeared in my INR tests – my levels having consistently been in the 3.5 range. A bit of a concern – higher chance of bruising/internal bleeding. My doctor started taking notice, test in two weeks rather than monthly. So made another change, which I’m hoping suits all goals – natural food source, a bit more vitamin K intake to level off the INR, and cheaper than what my second breakfast was (besides healthier).
