I have not been this excited for a test since the last final of my last semester of college. This one though, I was not able to cram for. I have a blood test scheduled to check my cholesterol and other numbers. Since I started Running Without a Watch and changed my eating habits along the way, I was curious to see if this would translate into heart healthy numbers. My numbers have not been too bad the past few years. I wish I had the results from my tests when I was 50 pounds heavier.
Last year after only 3 months on this new healthy way of living, my numbers improved.
Cholesterol 131 133
HDL Cholesterol 25 35
LDL Cholesterol 86 88
Triglycerides 98 50
Glucose 88 79
I am hoping to bring my good cholesterol up and maintain the ranges of the others. We will see if eating all the fruit have paid off. If my numbers go up, I will need to rethink some diet choices.
