I'm feeling pretty miserable which isn't usually like me.I had another repeat cholesterol test to see if I could bring my levels down just through diet changes.So after quitting butter,cheese & trying to reduce saturated fat,my levels have only gone down from 6.2 to 6.1.So now the nurse is going to recommend statins.
Now I know most people over 60 are on statins but I suspect that when my Mum was on them for many years they maybe caused some of her problems.Eg memory loss,neuropathy,muscle pain.
When I'm trying my best to keep active,eat well its just frustrating that my body has let me down.It was hard when I had to take BP medication & now this.
Maybe it's familial & I can't do anything else but take statins to keep me healthy.
Sorry for the rant but I needed to let out my frustration.😡

Hello Shape Shifters. No walk for me on Wednesday. Forecast said it would rain all day, which wasn't true so I could have gone in the early morning. It was fine though and I had a relaxing day with Tinus. I also got my new shoes, so I was really excited to try them out on Thursday. I am so happy I got them. They fit well and were comfortable right from the start. I just did my usual walk, no need to break them in at all. Almost all the pain I had is gone, except for a small amount in my right heel. That makes me a lot happier to start my walks in the morning. Also noticed my feet in general felt less tired after the walk on the new shoes. It was quite muddy and wet in the forest, but my socks stayed dry. I had a really good time with them! They come with an insole you can remove, though I will keep those in for now.
Hopefully my feet can heal up in the autumn and winter and then in the spring I would like to go back to my Vapor Gloves. I still prefer those because it barely feels like you are wearing anything which is just super nice. The Bootee M's are a bit heavier and more shoe which is really useful now and they are better for the colder and wet days so I think it is good to have both. Happy Friday everyone
