It has been a cold winter here in Ohio as in most of the Northeast. My children love the snow and would play in it more if allowed.
I have been having issues with my shoulder after the surgery
and hope that no more setbacks with it as spring is near and
I am SO ready to get back to work on our cabin!
I ate good last night after receiving a very bad cholesterol scan
and wanting to get back on track and control the late night
snacking with low calorie alternatives.
I am border line diabetic and fall asleep easily when I eat sugar
in most any quantity if left alone in my lazy boy. So I am cutting
back on my sugars intake as well.(178 mg/dl non fast)
My hdl was 30 and this is due to eating poorly, but mostly
lack of exercise and being over weight. Catch 22 because
working out causes me pain now and seems more so when
the barometer is low, I need to research why or if just
coincidence..?Thus I will be using my treadmill more to
get the weight off and the good hdl up. I am also back
on my cholesterol meds ( I had forgot to take them for 2
weeks prior to the exam). My triglycerides were through
the roof at 544 not fasting and this is very bad as well thus
I will try to eat less and less fatty foods.
My snack last night was a few oyster crackers a thin slice of cheese and a small sweet potato cooked plain.
My stress level is 1 of a 0 to 10 scale. Feeling Good with only minor arthritic pain to attest for the one.
