Kansas City dietitian loses patience

Today I had to go to the doctor’s office to have blood drawn. My main goal in life is to stay out of doctor’s offices by good clean living. So far so good.

(If you are 40 or younger, listen up. It is not too late to change your lifestyle so you can stay out of doctor’s offices, too. Wake up, smell the antiseptic, you do not want to spend the last half of your life in doctor’s offices. Commit to changes today!).

So, anyway, I was in the waiting room for 45 minutes. I was not happy. I do not want to waste even one hour of my waning years sitting in a doctor’s office. This event has once again motivated me to exercise more and eat more veggies.

Think about it: run, swim, bike, yoga, topped with summer-veggie flatbread verses watching NCIS reruns, meat lover’s pizza, topped with ten very expensive prescriptions, followed by hours, days, and weeks sitting in doctor’s waiting rooms.

Then to be told “it looks like you need a procedure.” (Run when you hear this, oh wait, you can’t run, you are out of shape from pizza and reruns.)

So, what’s it going to be? 40 years of road races or 40 years of doctor’s offices?

P.S. If you choose the latter, that’s O.K. by me. My husband, daughter, and son-in-law are all physicians and they can use the business.

See you in the waiting room.

Or at the next 5K race.
