Surprised to learn vitamin D was low

Walgreens receipt
Love the mundane beauty of a simple, ordinary receipt and moment in time (yesterday). Purchased a bottle of Vitamin B12 and one of vitamin D3.

 

Rode bike to Dr. Patel’s office to review bloodwork and CT scan results.

Overall, great results.

Vitamin D and B12 are low.

Dr. Patel recommended D3 2000 IU and B12 1000mg.

Do you get giddy for your blood work results?

quest diagnostics portal
2018 is missing because it’s been two weeks since the blood draw…have been waiting so anxiously and was concerned the bloodwork report got messed up or lost.

 

Do you get giddy for your blood work results?

Probably a no for most of us – at least for me for the past decade – ever rising cholesterol.

Is it possible to reverse our yearly results-anxiety?

Yes, for example…

Concerned enough to try better habits over the past couple years.

These assorted eating habit changes led to a dramatically different cholesterol report last year.

Dramatic.

Shocking.

Inspiring.

Total cholesterol under 200 and LDL under 130 for the first time in at least a decade.

Factors:

  • eliminate sugar
  • dramatically increase fresh fruit intake
  • eliminate fast food
  • drastically reduced processed food intake
  • virtually eliminate protein bars (was eating four a day)
  • dramatically increase super-food intake (avocados, certain berries and nuts)

Yesterday’s results yielded highest HDL (71) ever and lowest LDL (102) ever.

Everything that is worth anything is this…

Hard work.

How cool is it to know for sure?

Go.

Have fun.

Work hard.

And let your karma be contagious.

Be careful when health no longer is a priority

Disney Space Mountain
Running to Magic Kingdom from home yesterday…almost there.

 

Leadership and adulthood are synonymous.

Life is one long “delay of game”.

Sometime around puberty, our ability to dream wide open starts to become censored.

When was the last time i exercised regularly?

Be careful when health no longer is a priority.

What is given to you can be taken away. But what you accomplish for yourself stays with you as long as you value it and protect it.
