    Eat more protein, I eat egg whites every couple of hours to keep the hunger down on those days. Best wishes.

    go for a long walk
take you camera
find pictures that make alphabet letters (stop sign on pole is a dotted I)
spell something with the letters
make a visual collage of it

you won't have time to think about being hungry while stretching your imagination

I am back

Monday, April 07, 2014

I am sorry I have been gone so long but my computer went down and I just got it back running.
The month of March was very disappointing anyway. I have been on a platue all month. No gains but NO losses either. I can't find my camera but as soon as I do I will post March and April's pictures. Since I was on that platue I started looking very carefully at what I was doing wrong so I could change it. The first thing I notice was that I am not getting enough sleep but I don't know what or where I can cut anything out. So may if you all see my scheduled you can find an 8 hour chunk I can cut and then I will sleep during that time. By the way this will change a little after Easter. Here it goes: Monday up at 2am working from 2:15 am to5:30am, doing computer things(now that my computer is working) 5:30am to 6am then off to morning mass, mass is from 6:15am to 6:45am, back Home to get the kids up and ready for school that is from 7am to 7:15am then off to next job that is from 7:30 to 8:45 getting home around 9am, from 9am to 11am house work, appointment making, workout and finish any computer stuff I need to do, then back to work for lunch duty from 11:15 am to1:15 pm, back home for lunch and returning phone calls from 1:30pm to 2:15 pm then back to work at 2:30 pm to 3:45 pm then I go into Mom duties anything from homework to shopping ( any mom out there will know what that is) Tuesday goes about the same except that I don't go to church at 6:15am because I go at 6:30pm and then I go to a religion class after that which runs from 7:30pm to 8:45pm. Wednesday starts out the same then changes at 10:15 am where I have to go back to work and work until 12 noon come home until 12:45pm work from 1pm to 2:15 pm then into mom mode. Thursday is Monday's scheduled. Friday is Tuesday scheduled. So for a quick recap 2am-5:30am work,6 am- 6:45 church,7am-7:15 getting kids ready for school, 7:15 -8:45 work, 9-11:15 home, 11:15 to1:15 work,1:30 to 2:15, 2:30 to 3:45 work 4pm to 9 mom duties. Well while you are looking at that I talk to the PE couch to change my workout and that has been what worked.

    That is one busy schedule. It sounds exhausting. Would it be possible to get a different part time job with better hours to help free up some time?

    I would be cuting out the job that starts at 2am.
Kids in bed by 8:30pm and crash that is about 5 1/2 hours.
why so much back and forth?
Crazy.

Met with doctor

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

I went to the doctor today and of course they HAD to weigh me emoticon I now weigh 217 that is 5 pounds down emoticon since Friday. For a total of 25 pounds since I started this on 12/31/13. I am off my blood pressure med for now because my blood pressure was perfect today and I was out of meds and I told her until I met with her I did not want to refill them just in case she want to adjust any of them. My metFormin has been cut in half. She would not reduce my insulin meds yet until the end of March when she does another A1C;she won't take me of the thyroid meds yet and it is at the smallest doseage there is for that meds.

Coupon Saving Part Three

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Last nigh I went and got my new meter and test strips plus my syringes.Well when we got home and I was getting everything ready for my bed meds and that included my blood sugar testing and we found out that I was given the wrong test strip so I called the pharmacy and was able to take those back and get the right ones. Well because of their mistake they gave me $25 for groceries. Yes I redeem it today and with my other coupons I save 72% on my food bill this week. All store includes I spent $83.69 for 21 meals for 6 that is 3.99 per meal per day.

My day seem to be getting longer and longer but at least I was able to get on here today.

I had read on someone's else blog on how her blood sugar are lower than ever and she is feeling so much better emoticon and I am really happy for her. I on the other my blood sugar have dropped down into normal ranges to but I am still on all meds, hopefully that will change after I see the doctor, and I still feel like crap.


Well I weigh-in in the morning and I am hoping that I have lost 6 pounds that weigh when I go into the doctors office on Wednesday I will have lost 20 pound by doctor scales and 24 pound by my scales and the doctor will either reduce my meds or even better take me off the meds.
