New Jogging Record

This morning I jogged for 40 minutes, setting a record by a full 10 minutes over my previous high!

While I understand day-to-day fluctuations are not to be taken seriously, I was gratified that my weight after the jog was down by 2 and a half pounds over 2 days ago.

Last summer my brother told me his cholesterol was very high, and suggested I get checked. I have finally done that, and the results are that overall cholesterol is 227.2, triglycerides are 151.3, HDL (good cholesterol) is 40, and LDL (bad cholesterol) is 156.9. Websites I looked at indicate this is borderline high, so diet modification and exercise is indicated as the first line of attack.
