I am sick with the flu :( also, I have recently been diagnosed as iron-deficient anemic, so I am trying to take it easy and eat more iron to rebuild my energy.
Despite all of this, I have a NSV to report: I went to my doc and my blood work was better than ever! My triglycerides went down from 85 to 73; my total cholesterol and LDL were still low; my HDL went up from 45 to 50; my HA1C went down from 5.9 to 5.6.
My doctor took me off of metformin because I don't need it anymore :) I beat pre-diabetes into submission and I am totally proud of myself.
I lost 3 lb this week also, but I think that might have to do with being sick more than anything. I can't -wait- to get back to the gym... hopefully I am well before classes begin this Wednesday. I am still planning to stick to the schedule in my last blog.
I just want to apologize for not being around as much as normal this competition...along with physical illness, I have been dealing with family issues that have been trying my anxiety and it's been a roller coaster of emotions.
I wish my fellow Dune Riders a spectacular Week 8! I am so proud of you all for sticking it out and for being so successful.
