So Monday is coming and so is the weigh in. I haven’t cheated and looked yet but am expecting at least some loss. I see on Allan’s blog he’s saying some great numbers are already in. Oh I can hope. I still have the bugger of a headache but am sticking to it and hopefully next week it’ll get better. I had a great workout today, pushed to hard with the plan though cuz I felt like crap a good part of the day but I haven’t been to the gym all week (been working on my biking and 5K on the trails instead) so wanted to make my workout worth it. I can’t seem to find the perfect life style change yet for me. I so love my workouts and don’t want to change them but I want to lose a bit more weight too so need the lower calories but feeling like crap isn’t what it’s all about either. I’ll learn, I know there’s a happy spot in there somewhere.
I got my lap report back. Glucose was great, my thyroid is a bit high so will need to change my dose of meds, my cholesterol is still a bit high too, 208. My LDL is what’s not good so need to talk to the doctor and see what I need to change. I’ve been reading a bit on the LDL and it has some things to do with insulin resistance too. Not that I understand much about this yet but I do read a lot of blogs that talk about it but don’t understand yet how it starts but I’ll learn. I thought with all the weight loss, exercise and healthy eating everything would be just fine or even better then fine but I guess not. I know that on my mom’s side high cholesterol is part of life so maybe it’s a start for me. I’m hoping not and maybe my food will be changing a bit more, we’ll see. More to learn.
Sometime looking back, not knowing all of this stuff, not worrying about what I was eating, what I weighed, what I was doing was easier, not good just easier.
So right now, sitting here I’m feeling a bit down. I’ve worked so hard to make myself healthier but it’s not working as good as I hoped. The good thing, it’s all fixable. I hate medicine so I’m going to do some research and see what else I can change in my diet and also in supplements and come up with a plan. I didn’t work this hard just to have a heart attack from a messed up LDL.
Onward and downward. A good diet, good exercise and a healthy life style. Working on it. Not easy but well worth it.
Take care my friends and have a blessed and awesome Sunday.
