First, the average news. I twisted my ankle back on May 31st and I haven’t exercised since. It’s feeling much better and I’m fairly certain I could bike and swim, but I’m not sure about running and I don’t want to push it. I’m going to go to the doctor and get it checked out, but this is by far the longest I’ve gone between workouts.  Hopefully I’ll get back out there this week.

The good news is that I got my blood test results from my annual physical and my cholesterol is even lower than it was eight months ago.  The additional improvement is much less significant—an additional ~10% drop in cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL—but still great news.  My “healthy” cholesterol (HDL) hasn’t increased any, so I’ll have to work on that some more as it’s borderline.  Now if I can just train myself to eat smaller and more frequent meals, I might be able to drop back under 190.  One step at a time.. 🙂
