Sunday evening I was standing in my kitchen ,sitting up the coffee for Monday, when a sharp pain hit my foot, hill and ran up my calf, It was so intense it almost brought tears to my eyes and just about through me to the floor. I grabbed the counter and lifted it up off the floor . I stood there for what seemed liked hours ,but probably a few minutes , then made it to the table and finally to the living room. My husband who was asleep woke up about an hour later and came through to get him a drink, I asked him to rub my hill and explain to him what happen ,he said it was swollen. It keep doing the pains when I was on it. I wrapped an ace bandage round it and went to bed. When I got up Monday ,our power was off, but after being up a little bit, I decided to get dress , I had to go check on one of my older ladies , went to get my clothes and the pain hit me again. I called my oldest son and he came up to get me . When I got into his car I called my doctor and they saw me yesterday. I was pretty sure It was bone spurs an Achilles tendon. because I dealt with it about 4 yrs ago, It is, I remember it was painful, but I didn't have shooting pains like that, She called me in some med and some of my other meds that I needed and sent me for an ultrasound to make sure I didn't have any blood clots. No clots When we got back to drug store they only had 1 out of four filled, I told her it was 4, she checked on it and told me it would be 10 minutes or so.In a few minutes they text me said my order was ready , when I went in only 1 more was filled 2 out of four,but not the one I needed .They needed authorization from the doctor and she had just got off the phone getting it on one of them, I just told her I would pick up later. I didn't make it back. I am going to call when they open and make sure they have them before I go. To sum this up. I am to stay off foot as much as I can , use ice on it and take the med for pain, I took it before ,so I know I will only take it at night ,or when I am not leaving the house . I have to work , at least I work for me and can go at a slower pace and sit down if I have to. But I guess going to the gym is out for awhile . I will figure something out. Anyway that is how I have started my week,but I am not going to let it get me down, for I am a winner and this is just a test. Have a good week my friends.

Yesterday was my one year sparks anniversary . I have had my ups and downs and fell off the wagon a time or two but no more messing around. I finally figured it out I had my goals wrong. By putting my weight wants first I got mad and disappointed when the lbs just didn't fall off. I know at my age and problems it was going to be harder, but in my mind 2lbs a week was doable. But it isn't . It made me angry . Even though my health was getting better ,the weight lost was consuming me. I couldn't let it go that my progress was to slow and that was my final fall from the wagon for two months I half way to no way stayed with the program. My sugars went crazy and I wasn't feeling great . When I went to doctor numbers were up, by talking to her she started me back on the right path. When I went to my eye doctor last week ,well he strengthen the path, He said for me to have had diabetes for as long as I have, I had good eyes. The fluid that I had ,had was gone, I had a few diabetic problems, some floaters, but the key to it all was keeping those sugars down, Even though I would love to see all my weight down faster, I have put it second and health first . It is the right thing to do. So here is to my Anniversary and to better health. After all I could lose all the weight in the world and it would not mean a thing ,if I wasn't in better health where I can enjoy it.

Tomorrow , we go on vacation. We have a time share in Gatlinburg which is only about an 1 3/4 hours away, no long driving. He likes to leave early and they don't have to have it ready until 4 . Sometimes we get lucky and get it by 2.30, but still we have hours to wait and try to find things to do.And he starts getting upset. I know he likes to leave early because of traffic , so I think he shouldn't get upset. Anyway we decided to stop at flea market ,in Sevierville , then go on up and tell them we are there. They will get my cell number and call when it is ready. Go down to side shops and to the pool if we have too. Anyway I want have anyway to track here , so I am going to write it down and for exercise , they will be allot of walking when we go down town at night and other places and there is the pool even though I don't swim I do get in and do water exercises. Since we do allot of the cooking there I can kinda keep meals in check. I just have to make good choices when we are out. Well I have a million of last minute things to do and I must get started . I will think of my sp friends while I am away and look forward to blogging when I am back. Have a great week.

Just a quick blog today. After being off tracks .my sugar went up. After getting back to things they are going back down, but I am still waking up to numbers like 176, 157, 166. But my doctor told me I was smart and I knew when and how to adjust my meds. As much as I hate too I know I am going to have to go up on my Lantus at night, but it is my fault. So tonight I will go up and when I get two weeks of good numbers 90 to 110 I will try to go back down. I am also adjusting getting back into the gym. I went the last 2 days and I am sore I am skipping today, I have allot of house cleaning and will go tomorrow. One day at a time, one step at a time.
