home again

We had a difficult trip home yesterday--our first flight was late, we got onto a later connecting flight, but then it was cancelled. But we are home and settling back in.

I went to my doctor for an annual checkup. I feel like my metabolism and energy levels are slowing a little and was wondering if there were any ways to tweak my diet or exercise patterns to help that during menopause. But she didn't have any suggestions, just said that I am doing better than 99% of people.

I do watch my eating very carefully--that my A1c is 5.6 is the result of hard work. The exercise (and probably the low carb diet) help my cholesterol numbers, but I think it is mostly genetics that my HDL is 90 and my Triglycerides are 37.
