I passed my latest blood test with flying colors! Cholesterol is down. Triglycerides are way down. I didn’t even have to debate with my doctor on medication – she was thrilled with how the Lovaza+diet+exercise seems to have done the trick. Unfortunately for my wallet, the Lovaza is a fairly recent FDA approved pure Omega 3 capsule so there are no generics yet, but she’ll keep an eye out.
Meanwhile, I get to go SIX months before testing again – yay!
Of course, since I happen to like that I lost 10 pounds and also that I have toned abs & can even see some muscle definition in my upper arms & shoulders….you know I will keep up the more extreme exercise I started. Yes, I will even keep up with the running – which is currently really just a super snail pace slow jog. And I wont go back to eating Skinny Cow every night. Ice cream stays a once a week (at most) treat. But at least now I wont worry about things when I go on vacation & pig out a bit. I deserve it!
