I am so glad for you! Having my knee replacements done was the best thing ever! I think the drug companies lowered the number because they want everyone on statins. That is one of my battles with my doc also. But I am not going to take them. He can just get over my numbers. Which by the way are over 300. But my triglycerides are very good!

Got cleared for knee replacement surgery today at my primary care doc's. She loved my cholesterol numbers (best yet..) and I didn't have the heart to tell her I only take the statins a week before I see her..LOL I'm not convinced they are good for you..just something Big Pharma pushes..when 200 total cholesterol was good enough 10 yrs ago, why do the drug companies say it has to be 150 now?? Not to mention the joint/muscle/liver damage they may cause...
The ketones were up....(hello..I'm doing Atkins..) but other than that..I'm cleared for take-off. I still want to lose AT LEAST 10 lbs before April 16th, and she thought that was a good idea too...
Fridays are always a challenge in Lent. Need to load up on more eggs, fish, crablegs, and salads. Maybe have polish sausage and cooked cabbage tomorrow...

TGIF! I think I'll make it through the week now!

I was laying in bed this morning after the alarm went off and was judging myself for not wanting to get up and work out when I realized that Thursday is my very long day (8 intense hours of work followed by a fast dash home and then to a client's office where I have to think and function optimally again for at least two more hours) so why would I NOT be a little tired on Friday mornings?? So, I have decided that until my schedule changes, I am going to do a day off from exercise on Fridays. That will give me incentive to workout earlier in the week. Why in the heck do I drive myself so dang hard??? Yeah, yeah, I know: eldest child syndrome, perfectionist, over-achiever, OCD, etc.!!!

You can't say I don't catch on eventually... LOL Today I am going to consciously slow down a bit. I have a lovely three-day weekend ahead of me, so I'm going to walk the boys tonight and this weekend, and breathe a lot. And, of course, squish in some client work!

Today we get the new refrigerator delivered. They just called as we were getting our showers. I usually exercise on Friday before I go to my Artist club but today's cold weather keeps me out of pool for today.

Food: Started out with waffle with 1/2 peach and 3 Tb butter. Waffle's are carb friendly...5 eggs and 8oz cream cheese with nut meals.

Later, I'll be running around to get frig filled again so I'm carrying a Atkins snack bar. It will do until tonight when I have chili made of deer meat with high fat beef meat and peppers, and dark chocolate, tomatoes. That will do the trick.

type with you later. Junebug

I decided to mix thing up and bought chicken for today. I will be back to burgers tomorrow. It is not horrible and I can do it for one day, but I am a red meat eater.
I am waiting for James to wake up so we can go to playgroup.

Ok, let's get this daily thread going again! Seems like it's been a bit hit-or-miss lately.

Nothing at all scheduled for today! It's been a busy week (for me, anyway) with multiple things going on most days. Will take a walk, do some decluttering and some housework. Maybe go to the store. Stuff like that. And, of course, eat yummy low carb food!
