Day 766

Sunday, October 27, 2013

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. emoticon

    Stand firm with the doctor. If your levels are going down, then he should be doing the happy dance with you.

You crack me up on how you wear out that little Jack Russell. Poor pooch. His little paws are probably aching.
