I lowered my cholesterol! (yech – I could be a TV ad-pitch-person)

During my annual physical exam/health check-up today I received good news. My cholesterol was down to 180 from 244 a year ago. My secret? Smaller, healthier meals spread throughout the day and attempting not to over eat.(not always succeeding though) No medication, special diet or exercise program. I brisk walk one or more of my Irish Setters between 1-2 miles a day. For a 5’11” guy between 145 – 150 lbs. approaching his 48th birthday, I’m smugly pleased with myself. I can already feel the wrath of all those overweight readers who constantly are fighting weight problems. Well, if it makes you feel any better (and it probably won’t) I had to endure “turn your head and cough” plus the only time KY Jelly is allowed inside my body to get the good news.

Leaving the doctor’s office I immediately drove to Starbucks at Providence/McKee/I-485 to celebrate with an iced grande no-whip mocha and cinnamon twist. (my usual once or twice a week splurge)

Looking at my father’s side of the family tree, there is absolutely no tendency toward obesity so maybe it’s all in the genes.

So maybe I won’t check outta here anytime soon.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
