First off....did you vote? If not, you've got about a hour left....so 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 election.......be happy that we don't have to suffer thru anymore political phone calls and ads. YAY!!!!!!
