orange juice morning, noon, and night [Mar. 8th, 2007|09:43 am]

[Current Mood |awake]

I went to the doctor last week to get a physical for the first time in, oh, three years. I guess I should go more often, but I've been pretty lucky when it comes to health problems. Anyway, my precious bodily fluids were also taken and sampled, and I found out my good cholesterol (HDL) was lower than it should be. (my bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides were a tiny bit high as well) Apparently diet and exercise help a lot, as well as certain foods (orange juice), so I'm really trying to stay on the wagon with the whole losing weight thing. I find it's almost impossible for me to avoid eating when I'm bored (especially at work), so that's something to work on. No sodas before dinner this week is going pretty well, though.

Did a similar analysis for jewelcrafting as I did for alchemy (which things can be crafted for profit on the auction house) - there seem to be some decent possibilities there but I don't know much about the items.

mmm...oatmeal...I wonder if oatmeal cookies also have magical cholesterol power? especially chocolate chip ones?

you have good genetics -- mom has really good cholesterol and so do I, so you probably do too.

The weird part is that I have oatmeal 2 out of every 3 breakfasts. And I like oatmeal and all, but I'm not sure I want it encroaching on other meals. (although I did buy oatmeal bread to see if it's standable or not...)

I've been recently living on homemade granola - I realized I've been eating a cup of uncooked oats a day. Plus all the other goodness (wheat germ, oak bran, dried fruit, etc etc). Lots and lots of fiber. I'm guessing my cholesterol is in decent shape... (Let me know if you want the recipe - you should use it as a work snack food!)
