My cholesterol is higher than it's ever been. BUMMER! I am on an ultra-strict diet for 6 weeks and have to step it up a BIG notch with my exercise routine. Then I have to be rechecked and if my numbers aren't down in the "safe" range, I have to go on those dreaded drugs.
I. DO. NOT. WANT. THEM.
So why am I blogging about THIS? Because I think if I tell someone, it'll keep me accountable.
IS ANYONE OUT THERE READING THIS???
The irony is the diet I'm supposed to start eating ~ It's basically what I'm eating now. Lots of fruits and vegetables, multi-grains, low to no fat dairy, very few eggs (I like Eggbeaters anyhow), no beef (HA! I don't really like beef!!), a little chicken and anything that lives in the sea.
Seriously, that pretty much sums up how I eat anyhow. With one exception. And this is a LIFE-CHANGING exception that I have to cut out. NOW.
Mexican food is off the menu for awhile. :-(
Queso and chips = GONE
Margaritas = GONE
So here's to a healthier lifestyle. I have exactly 6 weeks to get my cholesterol down at least 40 points.
I CAN DO IT.
I need YOU to remind me, encourage me, FORCE me to stay on track.
Happy Losing to Me!
