My February Go Red goal was to get my cholesterol and blood sugar levels tested. I had been putting it off forever because I didn’t want to fast for 12 hours before. Then I planned to go Monday but got snowed in. So…I committed to going today.
Dinner last night was so good! Grilled chicken, chickpeas, and Monterey Jack on top of the greenest salad ever. (And I added like three more cups of greens. My life has been lacking green things as of late.) I alsp threw some vinaigrette on there and had a slice of whole-wheat bread.
After dinner, I was eating grapes like they were going out of style, knowing that my 12 hour hunger strike was about to set in. When I woke up this morning, I was SO hungry so I got dressed and took myself straight to the lab to be there when they were just opening.
The lab is only five minutes from my house and even though they don’t take appointments, they weren’t too busy. I barely had time to open my mag before I got called in. I gave her my info, rolled up my sleeve, got poked, and bam! Done!
From the moment I left my house to the moment I got home, it was only 30 minutes. Sigh. It’s always over so fast when I’m getting poked, isn’t it?
In this case, I wasn’t too upset about it. I wanted food!!! Being out and about early makes hitting the drive-thru tempting, but as I did not have sex last night and therefore did not meet the criteria for getting McDonald’s, I had to go home and make my own version of a McMuffin.
So delicious: English muffin with an organic OMG3 egg, reduced-fat cheese, and a slice of bacon…
Plus a fruit salad with grapes, pear, strawbs, and cantaloupe!
Yum. I do not know how people skip breakfast!!!
My doctor will get back to me with my lab results soon enough; hoping that all is good in the hood with my blood sugar and cholesterol, but I’m actually really quite interested in knowing what my exact numbers are!
