I Have High Cholesterol

I like to think of myself as a bit of a health nut.

 I work out 4-5 times a week between running, attempting to run, and spinning.


I eat relatively healthy. I mean I indulge, obviously, or else I wouldn't be a slightly overweight SAHB (Stay at home blogger). I just thought that I was in pretty darn good shape. Slightly overweight but healthy.

Here I am going on my merry way when bamm...High Cholesterol. Like 242 high.

I am pretty much in shock because it kills my, but I work out theory.

I guess the 50 pounds my doctor told me to lose really does have to come off. So here I go, losing weight, taking down the evils of cholesterol (no more Lenten Fish Fries for me), and generally taking charge of my health.

My goal, to have cholesterol under 200 by the time I turn 38.

Eek. It's going to be a challenge. But I can do this. Interested in joining me? Comment below.

***Update: I survived my doctors appointment. I am going to take 1000mg of fish oil a day for six months and getting my cholesterol rechecked. My good cholesterol is high and my bad cholesterol is borderline. Put those two together and you get high cholesterol. In the end I think it will all be good, but I will keep you updated.***
