I was in Salt Lake City for the weekend visiting my family and got the update on my Mom’s progress (here's the first blog).
Six weeks ago she had a routine blood test and her cholesterol was 285! She had two choices, medication or exercise. She chose exercise.
Five weeks ago, she committed to walking at least three times a week for at least 15-20 minutes. While that may not sound like a lot to some, it has made a big difference! She teaches school full time and it has been challenging to find the time and motivation at the end of a long day to walk.
I was able to join her on two walks and she is getting stronger and more fit each week! She will retest her cholesterol at Thanksgiving.
