Yesterday's bloodwork shows that my triglycerides are high.  My mother's is very high too.  So, it's good that I am taking the steps now to work with reducing my excess weight, improve my diet, etc.

Today, I went to the Health Plex.  We covered my orientation, including the results of my assessments.  We visited all the machines that I will be using.  After covering all the information, I felt as though I were ready to get started.

I haven't been in a pool since October 03, and I love the water.  So, I got in my suitie, and slipped into the pool.  Then I checked out the hydrotherapy pool too.  The whirlpool was not ignored either.  Then I treated myself to a bit of sauna time.

When I came home, I ate a salad of spinach, red leaf lettuce, carrots, radishes, green onion, walnut halves, and 3-cheese dressing.  This morning, I ate a breakfast of raison bran cereal.  I feel healthier already.

No, really.  I do.

  1. not sure how I stumbled across your journal; first time commenting in it. Triglycerides respond very well to exercise and diet restrictions. They often reflect what you have eaten over the past couple of weeks. You might find with a bit of exercise and healthy eating they will go down quite nicely. The doctors worry about triglycerides, but they worry more about the cholesterol and the bad cholesterol (LDL). If your triglycerides are too high then they can't figure out what the LDL is until the triglycerides can get reduced a bit.

    Good luck with your healthy eating.

    I love being a pool that is warm; like over 88 degrees.



Thanks for taking the time and effort to let your thoughts be known!
