I'm taking brownies to my biking group tonight, so I'm counting it as the official start of my birthday celebrating.
I'll take some brownies in to the office staff in my department (and another that always shares treats with me) tomorrow, so they can enjoy some, too.
I got the results from my lab work back, and it's mostly good. My blood sugar was within the high range of normal (ie. NOT in pre-diabetes range), so that's good. If I lose weight and work on not eating sugar, and keep exercising, I'm guessing I can keep it in the healthier range okay. I'm guessing the thing that helped this time around is that I've been exercising?
The cholesterol was good (though the hdl was not quite in the normal range), but the triglycerides were high. So I guess again, less sugar would be better. I hate worrying about health stuff. It seems like there must be a better balance between worrying and not and actually doing something (like losing weight) than I manage to achieve.
But for now, I'm going to party! Let the biking begin!
For my birthday present to myself, I'm going to take a beginning yoga class, and see how I like it. One of my friends who's already good at yoga is going to take it with me, partly to be supportive (which, wow, can I just say, what a good friend) and partly to look at how another instructor works with beginners. So I should enjoy it.
