I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

What the Fudge?

I’m not exactly sure what happened to my WordPress blog, but I’ve had several people (ok, 2 people) tell me that they weren’t able to access it. Something about it being private and needing a password. I immediately set about trying to figure the cause of all this confusion. Some how, some way, my blog privacy setting got changed. I assure you that I did not do this on purpose. It’s all fixed now and should allow any and every body access. I’ll still have the occasional private post, which you may get the password to by simply sending me an email, but I’m not going to privatize the entire blog. That defeats the purpose of having one.

Speaking of having a blog… In light of the recent news from El Doctoro about the insanely shocking level of my cholesterol, I’m going to be writing about my food intake. It’s probably going to be boring at times, but I’m going to use every resource I can to make sure that I start to eat right. A blog is a wonderful way to keep track of what’s going on and to get helpful insight from other readers. Help and tips are always welcome.

I know that it seems I’m jumping in this whole thing with all my clothes on and I guess that I am really. I’m overly worried about the whole situation because my grandmother had her first heart attack when she was only 33 years old. That factoid resonates inside my head. I’m almost 31. My cholesterol level is crazy high.


I think that might be the most worrisome issue about this whole thing. The fact that I was completely clueless. I mean, I am aware of the fact that I do not eat as healthy as I should or that I don’t exercise either. Apparently all of my laziness and bad eating habits caught up with me a while ago, but they were sneaky and didn’t tell me.

I do have a tendency to overreact sometimes, but in this case I think it may be beneficial. I asked Chris on Monday morning to stop by the grocery store on his way home to pick up few things. Whole wheat bread, white albacore tuna, wheat thins, yogurt… things I know that I can now eat. The grocery store here in town only carries the unflavored version of Silk soy milk. From what I understand, the unflavored version is a little lacking on taste. Yesterday afternoon he graciously made an out of the way stop by Wal-Mart in Bowling Green to pick me up some Very Vanilla.

I shook it up. I poured a glass. I took a drink. Not what I was expecting, but in a good way. Definitely doesn’t taste like moo juice (as Sam called it!), but I like it. Sort of reminds me of milk with powdered sugar and nuts. Not the crunchy, just the nutty type flavor. Does that make sense? The great thing? Kaia LOVED it! She had two glasses.
