Just chillin'

So today I'm just hanging out. I got to sleep in, which was nice. I got some test results the other day and my cholesterol has gone up! Its at 99 which is the highest its been in a while (both numbers); my CK was 860, that is the lowest it has been in years! So although I am still anemic, deficient in Vitamin A, E, and D and am also low on Beta Carotene...I'm happy!
I had been feeling better muscle wise for the past week or so--but didn't know why. Now I do. I have been doing laundry, and dishes with out a problem! I have even been able to drive around with out leg cramps!

New Year!!

So it is 2010 and I've made a few resolutions this year and I thought I'd share them. Last year I wanted to get closer to my family and friends, I didn't do as well as I had wanted so I extended it! I also added to it in hopes to reconnect with people I knew way back when. This year I also made my awareness resolution, I make it every year in hopes that out of 365 days I can teach at least one person about cystic fibrosis. This year I added to my list:

-Eat healthier. By that I just mean to eat more fresh foods. Cook with fresh ingredients and to buy meat from the butcher at least once a month.

-If you ask me how I'm feeling...I'm going to be truthful. Really. I expect people to be truthful with me, so I should be truthful with them. It is only fair.

-Do what I can. For those of you who know me; you know I'm always trying to do more than I can. I usually end up in pain and many times unable to move...so this year I'm going to be better to myself.

So these are my resolutions for this year; wish me luck!
