Did You Vote? If Not, GO NOW! Not Much Time Left!

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

First off....did you vote? If not, you've got about a hour go.......NOW! This blog will be here when you get back, I promise!

So, I have been dodging my PCP since I got my cholesterol tests back bc I knew she was going to make me go on meds and I want to wait til January so I can give a true solid effort to lower it. Unfortunately, I see my PCP every Tuesday bc I work in her office bc we use it as a satellite office. She informed me that I needed extensive HDL blood work and a CMIT (or was it CIMT?) test (Carotid Intima Media Thickness). Urgh. The blood test was crazy, so many tubes of blood needed!

I have been eating really well, losing weight and feeling great. I'm getting a bit nervous for the holidays but I HAVE to remember how important it is for my health and happiness to stay on track. I will be talking with my mother in law to discuss Thanksgiving dinner so I can make sure that I can eat healthy. I found a recipe on Pinterest for cholesterol free biscuits, so I'm hoping I can get those made. I think I'm also going to make a chocolate low fat pudding pie as well. I'm going to focus on more what I CAN eat and what I shouldn't.

I guess that's it! Hope everyone has a great night and remember, no matter who wins the happy that we don't have to suffer thru anymore political phone calls and ads. YAY!!!!!!

    I'll still be getting the mailings for another week or two. Because of my absentee ballot my address in France was available to the politicians so I've been having all sorts of political ads sent to me all the way over here. I can't imagine what the mail carrier thinks of it all.

    Geez, now you've got me hyperventilating since Turkey Day is only 2 wks away!

But it would be counterproductive for me to get swept up in the drama of "trying to lose 10 lbs" - not that it would make a noticeable difference ANYWAY thou foolish woman...
