Heart Smart

Mcj was called to the GP's office unexpectedly last Sunday though he was scheduled for an appointment two weeks away.  Why, you ask.  The results of his blood/urine tests weren't good.  He had very high sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels.  He had high risk of developing pancreatitis.  News that we are not happy about but are we not glad that he went to have those tests without prompting.  They were not planned at all.  He was at the doctor for a different reason and it's another story. 

We are taking this news in stride.  We fairly eat a healthy meal and I suppose, it wasn't enough.  Mcj had to give up sugar for his coffee, so he's using stevia.  We are on low carbs diet - less bread, less potatoes, no sweets and smaller portions.  Meat has to be heart smart.  Mcj is really being good with all of this.  I can say that I am being a police and control freak with implementing a very strict diet - but I am just being very supportive.  I think we all deserve a pat on the back for implementing dramatic changes with our lifestyle.  What do you think of a class ring at JoyJewelers.com?  I'd love one please.   

I'll be documenting our journey to our healthier meals and improved lifestyle.
