Test Results

leave a comment »

It could be  worse.
Blood test results-
Glucose-103 (slight elevation)
Cholesterol 206 (slight elevation)
Triglycerides 97
HDL-59
LDL 128
All numbers are better than 3 months ago-Dr. said to keep doing what I’m doing-that menopause might be playing a role in this puzzle.
 
This is what Jimmy Moore (from Livin’ La Vida Lo Carb) stated recently…" Dr. Mary C. Vernon has said that a rise in HDL above 50 and a reduction in triglycerides below 100 is a sure-fire way of knowing if someone is truly following a low-carb diet or not."  According to my numbers,  that’s me.
 
I’m concerned with the glucose number, since I do not eat any sugar and watch my carbs. This number did drop from 110 to 103.

Going to the Dr. tomorrow

leave a comment »

Going to my Dr. tomorrow for a follow up appointment.  Had to get my blood work repeated-some cholesterol issues. I’m hoping that things are better. I guess we’ll see.
Had a crummy day at work  today and tomorrow will be no better. Oh well, that’s how it goes sometimes.
My Spring Break mixed berry pie was really good!! Had the last piece for breakfast this morning.
Gotta go watch my shows………………….

I was checking out low carbing on You Tube and came across a 5 part BBC series on Atkins. I found it to be very informative.

Exercise anyone?

leave a comment »

Boy, it’s hard to stay motivated to exercise. I’m hoping to get off my rear and move around more. I had been so faithful with my Walk Away the pounds DVDs. I have become………lazy…..It’s time to use a reward system on myself-if I exercise today, I can ________. (immediate) If I exercise __x a week x 1 month,  I can ________.(long range goal)
 
My daughter, Amanda, is getting some great results doing some Biggest Loser Workout exercises on our cable "exercise on demand" channel.  She says it’s pretty tough.
 
It’s darn cold here in S.A.  My roast is sooooooo good…we ate it with some gravy and green beans, too tired to prepare anything else this evening. Anyway, I gotta watch American Idol……..
