Hold onto your hats for some crazy numbers. A person's normal total cholesterol count should be less than 200. Mine is 250. Normal bad cholesterol count should be less than 130. Mine is 180. And I'm only 24 years old.
Based on these numbers, I expect to perish from a heart attack some time around 3:00 P.M. CST today.
Since I got my own place a little over a year ago, I haven't eaten anywhere near as healthy as I did when I lived with my grandparents. Sure, I've had a token vegetable once in awhile to pretend I'm making an effort to do better, but really, I'm in awful shape. I like having eggs for dinner. That probably wouldn't be too much of a problem, except I also like having fried chicken for lunch. And don't forget all the bacon.
You know, I think I can hear my arteries hardening.
So, fresh from eating a turkey breast sub from subway with fat-free onion sauce and NO CHEESE (sob!), I'm making some changes:
If you hear from me again, it's probably a message from the afterlife.
