Yay for exercise!

Monday, February 10, 2014

I had a physical last week, and the results of my lab work showed up Saturday in the mail. I'm happy to report that my numbers were excellent! Just to hit the highlights, my fasting glucose was 89, my total cholestrol was 144. LDL, HDL and Triglycerides were all in the normal ranges. In fact, just about everything was smack in the middle of the normal range. So really, all I need is to work on my weight! This just really shows you the power of exercise. I may not have hit the right food intake for weight loss, but my insides are just reaping the benefits of my active lifestyle!

Speaking of food, I'm working on my new suggestions starting today. The lady who looked over my food wants me to eat more, up my protein, and cut back on some of the processed things, like my Lean Cuisines. Which means I need to start cooking meals that make leftovers again! I'll give it a week or two and see what this helps me out any. Can't hurt to try, right?

As far as a quick non-health related tidbit, we spent all day yesterday looking at houses! We finally found a realro that seems worth her salt, and we actually managed to get in and do some real house hunting. The one I thought for sure would be a winner turned out otherwise, and the hubs and I need to talk some more tonight, but I think we may have found ourselves the one. Now comes the really nerve wracking part. This is simultainously the most exciting and terrifying thing I've ever done!

I've gotten a little bit behind in my current class, so I've been scrambling to get caught up. I had entertained the idea of pausing my classes, and maybe jumping in with the next group, but I'm afraid if I stop, I won't finish, and I'm a quarter of the way through already! So I emailed my advisor and professor so they would know that I'm still alive and working to get back to my usual standards that have landed me a 3.67 gpa so far.

I appreciate your support, and I'm looking forward on catching up with all the things on here that I missed over the weekend! See you guys on the boards, and have a MARVELOUS Monday!

    You don't have to have leftovers. Use them to make your own lean cuisine and freeze. emoticon You will know they are healthy and not loaded with preservatives. So pleased that all your levels turned out well. emoticon Keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Seems like a busy weekend you have. Looking for houses is challenging but can be a lot of fun too. It's important to have the right realitor. Congrats on the blood work. Exercise really does make a big difference. I like the feedback you got about your eating. I was told to eat more too and was doubtful but it does make a difference. Eating whole foods is also important. I slip but really do try and focus on meals I've made on my own out of whole ingredients. You can do it! Have a great week!
