Tuesday's wellness check was a mess! My good cholesterol is too low (36), my bad cholesterol is too high (121) and my triglycerides are too high (137)! It was pretty depressing. When I came home and told my husband about it, he started us both on a diet. Lots of vegetables, less red meat, and cut back on the sodas. I was told that more vegetables would help my good cholesterol go up. The new diet and working out three days a week should get me going in the right direction.
We went to the gym on Tuesday and worked on the elliptical and upper body. I went for 3 minutes on the elliptical before I had to rest. I'm trying to add at least 30 seconds each time. I want to get up to 5 minutes in the next couple of weeks. I'm up to 28 crunches. I can't do them all at once, but I don't have to stop for very long in between.
My granddaughter is so cute! She is getting so big already! She gets the hiccups a lot. I can't believe she's almost 2 months old already! It won't be long and she'll be running all over the house getting into things. I want to be ready when that time comes. I'm sure I'll be getting more energy and stamina soon. I can't wait to be a "smokin' hot grandma". My husband is anxious to see some results, too. He's starting to get some definition in his abs already. We'll both be "smokin hot" in no time.
