I went to the doctor the other day for a physical. He said everything looked good, for the most part, but blood tests would come in the next couple days. I told him about this cough I had at night and the weird sensation I had in my throat.

He figured I had acid reflux, even though I rarely feel anything in my throat. I am on Prevacid and the there is now no fried foods, chocolate, mint, and some other things I can't think of right now at night.

I got the blood results back today. Blood suagr is good, but my fears were confirmed. High cholesterol. SInce I am already exercising and it is still high, it looks like I will be needing some meds for it as well.

This is not a surprise, though it is a diappointment. My family has a history of this kind of thing. My cholesterol is actually hte lowest in my family, I believe, but still over 200.

I wanted to avoid this, but it looks like I will be headed to the doctor Monday to get some meds and a prescription.

I'm 36 years and I guess this is the time when I will begin accumulating ongoing meds. Does anyone know, do I qualify for Medicare part D? Ha, J/K.

Boom! Hit the $100 mark. Wahooo! Hit the 6.8 pounds mark. This is progress. Lots of rain, not much jogging. It'll kick back in.

I am on a roll, baby. My legs are sore and I am happy. You know the good kind of sore, don't you? The kind of sore that says, "darn right you're working you butt off!!!"

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

I shouldn't have done it, but I was traveling today and stopped by at the Crispy Cone in Highland, Arkansas and got me one of these.

This is against 40 Days of Fat law, ethics, and morality. I sinned and I confess. But I must say also that I did my 4 miles today. I should've done 6 or 8, but there is always tomorrow.

Donna has joined in the fun. Any other takers? It's never too late to join in. Feel free to spread the word.

I have started out with a bang. I have run each other 4 days so far and feel really good about it. I know I am a streak hiiter, so to speak, and get int and out of grooves. I really want this groove to linger.
