Last Three Cholesterol Screenings

Sunday, March 31, 2013

I recently found my previous two cholesterol screenings and thought I would compare them to my most recent screening.

TEST ONE
Cholesterol - 252
Triglycerides - 285
LDL - 145
HDL - 50

TEST TWO
Cholesterol - 206
Triglycerides - 226
LDL - 108
HDL - 53

TEST THREE
Cholesterol - 262
Triglycerides - 210
LDL - 163
HDL - 57

I am quite pleased with the movement of the triglycerides, and horrified by the skyrocketing of my cholesterol and LDL between tests two and three. But I know I can bring them down, so I just need to be more dedicated like I was between tests one and two. I've got to get moving!!!

I recently bought a yoga DVD and a Tai Chi DVD at a thrift store, so hopefully adding some more options to my workout choices will help me to not get bored. I think later today I'm going to try the yoga!

    I didn't even think about that!! That is an awesome idea! Then if I really don't want to do any of the videos I own, I can look up something new. Thanks so much for the awesome tip!! emoticon

    Did I already suggest streaming workout videos through your Wii via YouTube? One of the major studios has a ton of their fitness videos up for free, like the Jillian Michaels program I'm doing.
