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. :)
