in great health news--cholesterol = 205. my cholesterol has not been this low in 20 years. my LDL is 123, not perfect, but i'm getting there. answer = red yeast extract. that's it. it works. ask your doctor.
my blood work however was wonky. it looks like i'm anemic. or something. white blood cells up. i will just wait until my next appointment in three weeks. he will call me if there's an issue. but gods it's fun looking up all that shit online and seeing what kind of horrible diseases you must have.
my Umpqua oatmeal came yesterday. the best shit. EVER. a dessert with high fiber and high protein. about the same calories as a candy bar. but tastes like freaking apple pie. this is a good way to get my sweetness on. i am all about the sweet. and this has plain old sugar. nothing fake. which is better.
i now prefer unsweetened tea to diet coke. miracle.
it is raining. cats. dogs. fishhooks. toy trucks. i was out and about and got wet. i had on a sweater and a hat and just said okay you're going to get wet. so i did. and i splashed through puddles and stamped my feet and it was glorious. i haven't been out in this kind of rain in i don't know how long.
go out and play in the rain. we are lucky to have it.
