Took Cooper for a 2 1/2 hour walk this morning. The weather started out sunny (but COLD), but clouded up while we were out, and now it is quite gloomy. We covered almost 9 miles this morning. That is the longest walk we have done in a few months. I have walked farther without Cooper, but not with him. Now he is crashed out in my lap, snoring.
Tomorrow is my Dr appointment with my PCP. I am not too concerned. I just don't want to deal with the pressure to start cholesterol medication. As long as my numbers are continuing to fall, then I will stand firm. Obviously what I have been doing has been working. Why mess with what is working? Last time I saw him, he told me what my LDL was, but I forgot to ask him what all my other numbers were. It doesn't make sense for me to make a decision without all the facts.
I am not hungry today. I had a light breakfast, and a light lunch. I am hoping I have more of an appetite by dinner. Now I am off to start a big pot of beef and barley stew. Something hot and tasty sounds right for this cold, gloomy day.
