Renie's Sparkin'

I'm happy to find this site and hope to get back to a more comfortable and healthy weight. I'll start out by getting the sleep I need and go from there.* I love the food tracker and other helpful tools available on SP. However, I believe I've made 'beginners' mistakes by expecting a huge change in a very short period of time.

*For one thing I still haven't got my sleep controlled. I've been through just oxygen, then to a Cpap, I'm currently using a Bipap for Sleep Apnea and it ...

*For one thing I still haven't got my sleep controlled. I've been through just oxygen, then to a Cpap, I'm currently using a Bipap for Sleep Apnea and it seems to be working okay. (Except see my Blogs re: Oxygen & Bi-Pap Machines.) In the meantime, I'm learning to eat the things that are better for me and connecting with the Diabetes teams.

I invite you to read my Blogs. Also check out the links by experts on the Better Sleep Hygiene blog. I also have a Fitbit that helps me keep track of all sorts of things like my sleep which is my main concern right now and a dear necessity.

Hugs and health to all. Having SUPER SP Friends is part of the trick!!

Fitness Minutes: 62,878

My Goals:
One of my goals is to stay healthy long enough to meet other goals. So far, not much luck, but I'm still trying. I'm hoping the Bi-pap and FitBit will help there.

My Program:
Use Nutrition Tracker to keep track of what I eat and what I should eat to control Diabetes 2 and lose weight.

I love my Fitbit, especially the sleep tracker. With it I had proof I wasn't sleeping & could set things in place to help.

Personal Information:
I'm from southern Utah, moved to northern Utah at age 5. I joined SparkPeople in November 2010.

Since I'm a Leo, (August 1st*) ruled by the sun, I changed my background color to yellow. My favorite.

*Added especially for Miss Peaches (Brenda).

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries, humorous, and slightly off kilter books. And LOVE my new KINDLE. (Thank you, Helen & Bob.)

I have had my work published in "Mosaic, a Collection of Short Stories"; and "Tapestry, Poetic Threads of Life." I hope to get so I can have enough energy & creativeness to start writing again.

That's a good age. So happy for you!!!!!!!

Yes, the weather has been really nice the last several days.

Have been busy w/recertification for licensure. Almost done though. Seeing the light @ the end of the tunnel. Hoping it's not the light from an oncoming train! JUST KIDDING!

Jason is making progress. He goes to Madison WI (about 1-1/2 hrs. from here) for an interview w/the WI Insurance Commissioner's office. He knows him so hopefully that will help. That's on the 15th July.

Then on the 22nd July he flies to Lexington, Kentucky. Has an interview and will return on the 23rd.

Just praying one of these two works out. It's been a long haul!!!

Awwww, poor little fur baby! Mr. Spot had that too and he was fine and back to speed in a couple of days.

Hope you're getting your water! Today is so pleasant here, it's almost unbelievable for this time of the year! In the 70's, low humidity today and though it's cloudy, there is sun too.

My dear, HUGS

Hey there again. Glad the insulin was cut back! Good grief!

Feel good today. I'm soaking up the heat here today! Sunny and humid. Wish this could be bottled and released in the dead of Winter!
