I've been doing yoga, and walking, and now made some radical changes to my eating so far this year. Now it's time for me to set up some actual goals. I think I'm ready for a more specific plan rather than just "eat better" and "be healthier".
I'm calling this all "Project 150", because hey, a catchy name is much more fun to say then "Gotta quit being so fat, and by the way, be nicer to your ticker, too, asshole". :) Here it is:
Weight at 150, cholesterol at 150, by 1/5. It gives me a little over 9 months, so it's a little stretch, but a doable one.
I'm honestly not sure about how my cholesterol will change, now that I'm eating so much better. I'll get it tested again the first week in April and see how it changes. I picked 150 because supposedly, if you can get and keep your chol that low, your chances of getting heart disease are super, super low. My mom had terrible CHF that she didn't treat until it was FAR too late. I'm going to try to head that off before it even happens to me.
So there you have it! Project 150.
OH! Yesterday... SURROUNDED by corned beef and cheese EVERYWHERE, I didn't touch one single bite! Tom ordered fried mac and cheese balls where we were, and I thought I'd cave, but I did not! And HELL YEAH, I LOVE mac and cheese.
