I went to the allergist tonight. The good news is, my regime is working: Claritin and Flonase in the morning, Singulair and Netti Pot at night. The bad news is I have high LDL and high total cholestrol. Like, LOTS OF POINTS too high. WHAT?
Okay, it's actually not totally and completely shocking. I have not been maintaining my exercise levels of years gone by, and I am eating more crappy foods. I still eat good-for-me foods, but I have let the crappy come in.
When I was a kid, I used to think eating one potato chip would blow me up like that aunt in Harry Potter book #3. Now, I am okay with chips. My real vice though is chocolate and ice cream. I am pretty sure that is why my cholestrol is creeping up.
So, even though I am not overweight or obese, I need to take Bob Greene's advice, EAT LESS (crap), MOVE MORE....and seriously, seeing those numbers is WAY more motivating than seeing my cellulite! I want to live long and well, I don't much care if I have the dimples in my various areas!
HOWEVER, it will have to wait until after my job tomorrow. (YES I GOT A JOB!) It's an industrial for Listerine Whitening Strips. Don't tell them I have fake teeth. SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
