Well, after my great check-up I was a little disappointed with my labs. My total cholesterol was a little high and so were my triglycerides. Just a little over high normal. All of my other cholesterol numbers were great and my ratio was good. So what does that tell me? I just need to work a little harder. I am on the right track with 2 things:
1. Starting personal training for working out with weights to increase my muscle mass and decrease my body fat
2. My hubby and I are eating more fish these days and cutting down on red meat
I am sure my next numbers will be better. I am not going to let the numbers discourage me, but I am going to let them guide me in what I need to do to improve them and have a healthier lifestyle.
It is a good thing to know your numbers and I do have the benefit of good genetics. My total cholesterol was 210 - so not high enough that I need medication and my good cholesterol and bad cholesterol numbers were great. So I think by lowering my body fat and losing more weight will get things in check for me.
Hoping everyone is having a great week. Off to the gym soon for my personal training session and I can definitely feel muscles getting a workout that have not worked out in a while!
