:: Results are in ::

So i got my baseline bloodwork done yesterday and just got my results. I am not thrilled with the results but I can understand why it's the way it is. The last time I took my cholesterol, it was at 138. At that time, I hardly ate meat and focused on a diet of mostly veges (raw and cooked), fruits and grains. In the last 3 months, I ate a ton of meat (South america trip) and hardly ate veges at home because of our house being staged. I can't wait to have my kitchen back again!

The good news is that my good cholesterol (HDL) is up - YAY! Finally got it moved past the 50 mark. The exercise has paid off!

Cholesterol 195
LDL (bad) 132
HDL (good) 56

Cholesterol 138
LDL (bad) 82
HDL (good) 48

Will test this again 6 months after I get a kitchen back. If ever.

:: oops, false alarm! ::

For some reason I thought the 1 year anniversary was today (June 10th), but it really is June 16th! Read the post from 6/18/2008. How time has flown...

Notice that my goal was to get to 140-150 by the end of 2008 so technically, I am 6 months late. But hey, better late than never! :)

Nutritiohn journey summary:
Restrict calories -> Reduce junk(Refined sugars, carbs) -> Eating naturally -> Warrior Diet -> Eating organic veges/grains only -> Eating primal (Why would you do this?) -> -> Intermittent fasting -> Reducing carbs -> Feelin' good! (Will post my baseline bloodwork results as soon as I get them!)

Exercise journey summary:
Bootcamp > Kettlebell training > Running > 1/2 marathon > Full marathon (10/2009)
