Fast forward to present day. I got a blood test yesterday and to my surprise and delight, I am now in the 130's! I will get all the numbers in the mail shortly but to hear that made me very excited. It was surprising because I have been eating eggs like it's my job in the past few months as well as some other potential higher cholesterol foods such as meats. Although they are fairly high, I have also been eating a lot of cholesterol reducing foods such as nuts and fish.
I should also note here that my blood pressure is 120 over 80.
As a scientist I LOVE seeing objective numbers and this one just really excited me and enforced the idea of a healthy lifestyle.
Obviously life is about more than having good stats, there is a lot of luck involved, so lets keep my fingers crossed that I don't just drop dead tomorrow.
I missed the WOD this morning so I will do it at home tonight.
