weeknd update

Good morning.
It was a beautiful weekend! Sunny and low 80's. Got some good walks in. There's a couple of neighborhoods near the apartments and looking at every ones yards gives me a flower fix but also reinforces all the work involved in maintaining a nice yard. 
And Craig had his physical on Tuesday morning. I have to say, blood tests seem like a crap shoot. We haven't been particularly good with our eating habits or exercise. So he wasn't expecting improvement on any of his results. And for the most part, he was right. His sugar is still the same and his bad cholesterol was a little worst. BUT, His good cholesterol was the highest it's ever been, (that's really good) his triglycerides were in the normal range for the first time in years, and his ratio was normal for the first time. So go figure! Now besides eating out more often, the other major change we've done is cutting out most of the fat free stuff we ate. Instead of using fat free butter, mayo,dressings, sour cream and such, we've switched to low fat versions. So we're actually eating more fat, but it's mostly good fat. That would help explain his high good cholesterol.
Anyway, some good news with the bad.
Also, we met with the lawyer planning on signing the papers to sell the Salon, but the lease hadn't arrived yet, so no lease, no sale. We'll meet again next Tuesday and try this again.  We may have to delay the closing date a couple of weeks. No big deal
And maybe, just maybe when I get to work and pick up the mail, my phone case will be there! I checked the tracking yesterday afternoon, and it said it had been delivered. Finally! Only 11 days.
And it's back to work and it's looking like another slow week. But at this point, that's not really a bad thing.  :-)

  1. The problem I have found with the fat free stuff is they usually add a ton of sugar or salt to make up for it.
    So as you are doing, it is usually better to eat some good fat rather than no fat.

    Hope your papers show up soon. Have a great week!
