It was in the 80s again today. Cooper really dislikes this weather. He would rather have snow. I still managed to walk him over 7 miles. I walked over 9 miles, as I took a quick walk along the lake between appointments. Speaking of appointments... I had my Wellness checkup with the doctor today. He was pleased with my progress, although he harped on my cholesterol level. My LDL is a little high still. Not bad, but not where he wants it to be. It IS dropping though, so I resisted the idea of taking a pill for it since it is dropping with diet and exercise. I don't like taking pills. I don't like getting poked with needles either, but I have to go back June 3rd to have another blood test. I guess I shouldn't complain, as that will be a month between blood tests, and at times I have had to have them several times a week. ugh!
It is trying to rain now, so hopefully this heat will ease a little and I can walk Cooper a little more tomorrow. I really need to get to the gym, or go for a run outside tomorrow. My excuse lately has been that I haven't been sleeping well, and that always saps my energy, and combined with the heat... Anyways, that is just an excuse. The gym is air conditioned after all, and I always feel energized after a workout. So, those excuses don't hold much weight. Blargh! I need to just suck it up and do it.
