What I've learned so far

Monday, August 12, 2013

Even on my days of eating what I want, short of boosting the calories over (which works for me by the way - as long as it doesn't have me gaining weight) the limit and generally raising sodium for the day, I'm not going over the fat/cholesterol thing. Trans fat doesn't count since you're not supposed to have any, but even eating pizza, I didn't go over the limits. In other words, changing my diet isn't going to impact my numbers it seems. I keep tracking just to make sure, but if the DR says I need to change the diet to lower my number, it isn't going to happen and at least I will have 7 months of record keeping to show that.

I didn't workout at all yesterday. I wasn't feeling well. Very tired and shaky feeling. And I had a bit of a stomach thing going on it seemed. Wicked cramping. So I spent a good portion of the day in bed. I did grocery shop and some laundry. Cleaned out the fish tank. But I slept late, woke up, drank some coffee, went back to bed, got up and had some toast and milk, back to bed. I probably slept an extra 3 hours. ;) But I probably needed it.

Big plans for the day: Take the kid to the library to pick up his "grand prize" for finishing his summer reading already.

    Hope you feel better soon although kudos for doing so much while you were sick. I would have probably used it as an excuse to do nothing emoticon

    Hope you are feeling better soon. Usually when you sleep extra like that your body is trying to tell you that you needed it.
You're smart to be tracking so you will have written proof to show your doctor that you are doing all you can do to keep your cholesterol in check. Maybe it will help in the long run.
Sorry you had to clean the fish tank, on the other hand that's good news cuz is means the fish is still alive!! emoticon emoticon
Are your kids getting ready to get back to it soon? I only have two weeks left of summer vacation then back to school. My daughter will head to Mass Art September 1st.
