Numbers Numbers!

I had a pleasant surprise today. For my insurance, I had to get a blood draw and check cholesterol and sugars, waist measurement, weight....you all know the dread of it all! Well, I knew last year my total cholesterol was 260 and my blood sugars were 101. I have been eating pretty healthily most of 2015.
So today, I got new numbers. I haven't been perfect by any stretch, but I keep at it and have been eating a lot more fresh fruits and fresh veggies. I have been exercising ....sometimes. I have days that aren't great, but not weeks that aren't great, so that is good.
Today:
Cholesterol 219, down 41 points!!
Blood sugar 91, down 10 points.
Weight down 15 lbs from my last year's physical.

I was surprised. The weight loss has not been phenomenal, but the other numbers are really a shocking improvement just from diet alone, and a little exercise. No meds, just some supplements and vitamins.
I could say, wow, it could be so much better, but I won't. I am thrilled to be right here.
I am just excited that these small changes (Beth Indygirl this summer said, Do Something, start Somewhere), and that was what I did, and I am getting to see some results pretty quickly.
Sooooo....
Today,
Do something.
Start Somewhere.
You can surprise yourself! I did!
