So my eating two eggs a day for most of my life has caught up with me. My Cholesterol is elevated. (HEY, I'm a farm girl. We eat eggs, so sue me.)
I know a lot of things contribute to elevated cholesterol: age, menopause, weight loss, etc. I have to add some olive oil, eat nuts etc. But cutting back on eggs is gonna kill me. The food plan I follow has a good bit of protein for breakfast, so I general put 93% ground turkey or turkey ham in an omelet. I've tried egg substitute before (i'm not impressed) and I can't have soy products, But I had been trying to eat some non-traditional breakfast foods (beans and fish) on occasion, but the carb content for beans is too high.
I guess I will figure it out, but I was getting to a point where I didn't have to think about food all the time. My plan was pretty routine and becoming second nature.
(And for those of you curious about how I hurt my arm, I didn't. Wish I had a really good story about hurting it bungy jumping or something, One day last winter I woke up and I had lost some of my range of motion and had some pain in my left arm. I knew it was my rotator cuff because about a year and a half ago, I woke up and couldn't move my right arm without searing pain and I could only move it a couple of inches. So exercise has been limited for me the last few year. No weight training which I really need to do. I've lost a lot of muscle strength. But I will keep working on it.)
Everyone have a nice Sunday - It is supposed to be sunny here today!!!!
