Don't Go Breakin' My Heart

In honor of February being 'heart-health' month, my numero uno and myself had our cholesterol checked a few weeks ago. Today, the results were delivered. I'm happy to say we are both relatively healthy and should be around for each other for many years to come. HOWEVER, each of us needs to do some slight modifications in our eating and exercising. I need to raise a few points in one area, Phillip needs to lower a few points in another. So, to insure that we will live to see another 'heart-healthy' February, today is the day we start changing things up a bit. Eating even more fruits and vegetables, eliminating massive amounts of Miracle Whip (Mr. Phil), drinking more water (Miss Joy) eliminating fried foods (Both--Do you think french fries and tots are considered 'fried'?) and adding more resistance training to our workouts. We're on the right track. We just need to get better at what we are doing. One step at a time in the right direction. As long as we're taking those steps together, I think we'll make it. Especially if we also eliminate anything wrapped in shiny paper that resembles chocolate. (Perhaps that modification will occur after February 14th.)

what a good girl you are. I say a little chocolate never killed anyone. I'll bring you a heart-healthy valentine, then!
