Well, a few days into all of the diet changes and I am not a happy camper! I know I should stick to the diet so I won’t have to go on a medication to lower my cholesterol, but the foods I am not supposed to eat are the ones I really want.
My diet was sad enough before. But, giving up cheese? how cruel is that!. Very! I love cheese. Cheese is good. Fat has flavor. I was surviving without meat. I wasn’t happy, but I was used to not being able to eat it very often. Now, not at all.
But, I would really rather not have a heart attack and drop dead, Which, leads me to another scary train of thought. If I eat a basically low-fat diet & my blood pressure is perfect but, my cholesterol scary high, what does this mean for my brothers? Who I know just eat whatever fat filled thing they want. I don’t want them to have heart attacks either! Apparently this is hereditary, and I get it from both sides. My mom’s side has a history of everyone dropping dead before they are 57 and first heart attacks between the age of 40 & 43. Dad had his fatal one at 33. That just doesn’t look real great for me. But, then I am surprised I am alive now. But, I am worried about the boys, my brothers.
So, I replaced my delicious coffee creamers, with light vanilla soy milk. Oh yippie. Not impressed. It isn’t bad, but it didn’t really ring any bells for me either. Right now, my coffee only has my Truvia in it. I would be lost without the Truvia. Sugar was hard to give up.
Other than that, I guess everything is fine. Oh and my darling husband is finishing up the living room wall! There should be a TV mounted on it this weekend:) Now, if I can just convince him to paint that wall red!!!
