It is that time of year...

So, I was a good girl and walked down to the lab to get my blood drawn this morning. They took like 10 or 11 vials! I've got most of the blood work out of the way now; all that's left is the 'fun' stuff. I have the giant orange jug sitting here, as well as 2 cards. I'll not say what those are for (especially if you are eating right now!). There's still a bunch I need to do, but those will happen over the next few weeks. The part that's going to take the longest is seeing my local doctor to get the chest x-ray, EKG and PAP. I've already had my mammogram this year, so at least that's done!
I'm really curious to see what my blood sugar is! At this point I've lost 14 pounds. I'd love to know what my cholesterol is like now too, but since I'm taking a med for it, I'll have to ask the doc if I can stop it and get re-tested at some point.
It's really motivating though; walking down to the lab, the traffic was whizzing by me, but I felt calm and happy. Plus, I knew that I'd be getting almost 7000 steps in before 9am!
I've got the day off today, so it'll be house cleaning time here shortly. As I said before, if anyone wants specifics on the tests, etc just drop me a note!
Have a great day!
