I got a clean bill of health from the doc this last time except I’m overweight and my cholesterol is WAY high. My HDL is stratospheric in comparison to my LDL, but she (my doctor) wants ALL my cholesterols to come down from that ledge before somebody gets hurt.
So I’m trying to cut back on carbs, caffeine, calories, and couching. I also bought a “Fitness Stepper” from Starcrest for a measly $69 bucks, no shipping!
Here’s how it arrived. Well, it arrived neatly packed in a box, but here’s how it looked out of the box.
Oh, lord, methinks, what have I gotten myself into?
But I bravely unpacked the boxes within boxes and twisted my brain into interperet-instructions mode.
How long did it take me to put it together? About half an hour. Charlie was on the couch, watching me. I was terribly afraid he would try to do it for me, in which case the instructions might as well be written in Swahili and I’d have to take one of the pieces and beat him to death with it and live as a widow. But he left me to it, and I did it.
It works just peachy, or did for the minute and a half I used it. Don’t want to overdo.
I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today about some chard thing I made.
