Once you have those numbers in front of you....you can't deny what needs to be done. You have to take action or face the consequences. Those consequences are heart disease, cancer and DEATH.
You might think I'm being dramatic. I might be a little bit, but the facts are that I have slightly high bad cholesterol, low good cholesterol and I'm getting close to the pre-diabetic line. I'm also very low in Vitamin D.
The good news is that the numbers aren't so bad that they can't be corrected. I've caught it before things get out of hand and I've done damage that can't be fixed. Again, I'm reminded that my baby steps aren't working and it's time for drastic and dramatic change.
It's time to exercise and it's time to get my family active!
I think it's also time for me to stop eating pizza. I had some on Friday night and I felt terrible for two days! UGH! And I gained two pounds and I'm having trouble getting rid of it.
