July 9th, 2017 at 04:53 am

My test results came back, and my LDL has improved to the point that I no longer have to take a statin. I will be monitored, however, so I have to be ultra-careful with diet and exercise.

I can't tell you how happy it makes me to know I don't have to endure that ache in my muscles. If my knees would just shape up now, I'd be feeling pretty good!

Yesterday I got a free MyMixx deal, a single serving of Tai Pei broccoli & beef worth $2.50. I added $2.50 to my snowflakes.

I spent $18 on a haircut. The price has gone up again. I do get a 10% senior discount. I really like my stylist, so I'm not going to look around for a cheaper cut.

Today I'm taking a lakeside walk -- in fact, in about an hour. The temperature is nice, so it should be a great walk. We have storm warnings for later in the day, but the weather is great now.

Food stores are holding up great; I don't anticipate any shortages in the near future.

Life is good!

    Congratulations CB. You're doing fantastic. I hope you remain being pain-free.
    P.S. If it would interest you, I saw a Chase AARP card with a $200 bonus for spending $500. The info is on the home page of fatwallet dot com under the FINANCE heading

    Yay! You're like my mom. She's never on prescriptions long or at all. She usually talks her doctor into letting her try diet and exercise to see if it works!
