I wish that was my SAT score. Alas, that's the calories I've been placed on. Do you know how freaking hard that is? I'm measuring, and counting, and sorting, and weighing (well, okay, I'm not weighing because I don't have a scale right now, but I'll be getting one soon at Harbor Freight. Love Harbor Freight.) and realizing "THAT'S a serving?"

I mean, I knew it before, this isn't the first time I've done this, but, still, it's always a surprise. Especially when you love avocados and know that you can really only get away with one a day because, dammit, that's 250 calories that you might put to better use with say a big bowl of broccoli and some oil free hummus. I haven't made this yet, but I as soon as I fix my food processor, I will. Stupid frozen bananas broke it. I do have that immersion blender though...

I digress. 1600 calories. But, I can do it. I have faith and what not. I'm finally over the worst of the hell cold that downed me for five days. Now it's just the vestiges of it. I sound like a four pack a day smoker. It's kind of fun. Without all of that pesky lung cancer to ruin the day.

I came home from Walgreen's with a big bag of prescriptions. She changed my blood pressure medication, so far it seems fine. Thankfully, she didn't prescribe statins, I explained to her that they really made me feel terrible. She prescribed niacin. So, I have some of that that I take every night with a cup of almond milk and a baby aspirin. The niacin flush is lots of fun, let me tell you. I'm back on the metformin, and tomorrow I'll go up to the full dosage. I have to wean on to that stuff, it gives me terrible stomach pains and other nasty things if I don't.

That's your boring health update from me. Yaaay!

In other news, my mom is in town tomorrow. SURPRISE! *shakes head* I tell you, sometimes I wonder about my family. :)
