Hi there! I'm Paula and I live in Orlando. I like to run and watch too much TV. I'm a lover of cupcakes and hater of chia seeds, even though I've never tried them. I eat peanut butter out of the jar and think Aaron Paul is my boyfriend.

I’m on an alternative work schedule at work. Basically, I work longer hours during the week to get every other Friday off. Usually I end up having plans on those Fridays and it just makes my jam-packed weekend even longer and more exhausting.
Well, today is the first Friday I’ve had off where I’ve had no plans. And it’s been magical. I went out for lunch with the hubs, returned some stuff to Target, mailed out some goodies for a friend at the post office, dropped off old clothes at Good Will, did the dishes, and watched my bunny hump a cow.
HOT DAMN I love productive days. They put me in such a good mood.
I also picked up some of this at CVS.
I have high cholesterol and I’ve made attempts at diet changes to get it down. I even lost 26lbs on Weight Watchers and my cholesterol didn’t budge by more than a few points. My family has a history of high cholesterol, so it’s not really a surprise to me.
Well, my personal trainer has high cholesterol too. She read up on Red Yeast Rice and its cholesterol benefits and decided to try it out. She texted me yesterday that her cholesterol has gone from 230 to 175. (I think she’s been taking it twice daily for 2 months.) So, I’m going to try it out.
There are a few side effect warnings on the bottle – muscle pain, weakness, rash, gastrointestinal issues. Say whaaat? That’s like effects of long-distance running in a bottle. I’ll go ahead and start taking it after my 24 mile run just in case.
Time to get my running gear ready for tomorrow morning.
