Exciting results

Okay. I lied. I’m a horrible person. I told you I’d be back more regularly and then you didn’t hear from me for almost a month. I’d like to say I have a good excuse, but I don’t really. Right after the last post we went on a family vacation, and I’ve spent the last three weeks trying to get myself back into a normal routine.

But today, I wanted to share Andy’s most recent lab results. It’s been 2+ years since his last appointment, so we weren’t quite certain what to expect from his numbers. Since he’s maintained the same basic diet and lifestyle we weren’t too worried. And for good reason! Look at the numbers in the image at the top of the post! Not only is his A1c well in the normal range, it’s actually gone down since the last time he had it checked! Plus, his cholesterol and triglycerides (not shown) are all phenomenal.

I couldn’t be more proud. Maintaining our current lifestyle isn’t always easy. I tell ya, that 4:15 alarm clock sure goes off pretty early so he can get out the door for a pre-work walk every day. But Andy has shown a commitment to his health that I really admire, and I wanted to brag just a little bit.

If you’re on a health journey right now, I want to encourage you to keep at it. You may never reach a finish line, but the journey and the results will be well worth it!
