So here I am- realizing that my mother's genetic predispositions to low iron and high cholesterol are in me and that the potential consequence of not adjusting my eating and exercise habits is heart disease and/or stroke. This is "old people" stuff!
What do you do with that? Do you:
A) Make a bowl of chili con queso and a margarita (as acts of rebellion and surrender) while deciding when to go to In'n'Out burger because life as you know it is about to end.
B) Start looking at vegan websites trying to figure out how to make vegan cheese.
C) Reframe this as a blessing, knowing that this information is the motivation you've been waiting for to start moving away from red meat and cheese and begin exercising again.
D) Shit your pants.
