Ohio Valley UUs Community Blog: The Prodigal Blogger Returns

I wrote this a while ago, for the OVUUC blog, but felt the need to share it with a wider audience, so I'm adding a link, here.

Ohio Valley UUs Community Blog: The Prodigal Blogger Returns

I'll have more to talk about, soon, but life is very wacky, right now. This is the short explanation. Just add that I moved from Wheeling, WV to Jersey City, NJ and the culture shock (not to mention the "moving" shock) this is, and you'll have more of the story!

High Cholesterol

OK, so I have a new computer...a notebook. It's great to be able to update blogs, again.

I've been dealing with some health issues, lately. Most of my tests look good, so far, but I found out that I have high cholesterol...which is not too surprising, as my Mom was troubled with it. I did a lot to change my diet, over the years, but it looks like I'll have to get more focused. I know exercise is SOOoo important...and here I sit on this computer. Guess it's skim milk, from now on (I had already gone to 2%). I really don't eat a lot of chips or fries, so this shouldn't be too hard. I'll get the diet from my doctor in the mail, soon. I'm good at making small life changes, but the word "diet" just makes me want to eat all the unhealthy stuff I can get my hands on. I like taking walks and will do more of that, as the weather improves.

Well...just wanted to update this little blog. It's been so long. I'd love to hear from others who are dealing with high cholesterol. I sure love to eat, so any suggestions for guilt-free recipes will be appreciated.
