One thing about my old job though, was that I never cared to work overtime or anything, so I always had a pretty regular schedule which was really good for fitting in the gym. Nowadays I'm finding it a bit harder to make it. This week, I made it 3 times, which would have been very unusual in the old days. But lately, that's become more and more the norm. I've really got to figure something out because I think I need to go at least 4 times a week. Though I've also mentioned in the last couple weeks, I'm realizing that getting enough sleep may be just as important as getting in a workout, if not more. So I need to work out the right balance.
Recently, I was tested again for a regular blood panel for the second time in about a year. And for the second time in a row, my cholesterol level is higher than it should be. This was kind of alarming because I've always had very healthy cholesterol level. In fact, I used to not even fast before getting my blood drawn, and I'd still test normal. A year ago or so, when I first tested higher, I thought maybe it was a fluke. But this time it was the case again so I have to face this problem now. I eat healthy for the most part, and I have been working out regularly (definitely more than their recommended 30 minutes). So I think lack of sleep (and getting older??) is a factor in making my cholesterol higher! It's the only thing that has changed in the last couple years for me (other than getting older lol). So, that is why I've been really focusing on getting more sleep rather than getting in all the prescribed workouts. Sigh. The struggle is real!
Anyway, I digress. So here comes the fun part... outfits! Haha.
