So happy to see everyone posting their exercise and blog and comment post. The excitement, is in the air, the plane is soaring the skies, it's a nice relaxing flight, ride is smooth, so passengers are taking advantage of the exercise room, made available, to the spark people, in the Fall Challenge. There is also a track around the edge of it, so those, not on the machines, can do their walking. I know we all have to stretch, after sitting, so long.
Conversation is flowing, encouragement is being offered, and invitation to join another in the lounge, is heard, throughout, the room. The lounge has various beverages, seltzer water, spring water, juices, beer, wine and liquors and alcoholic beverages, of your choice. There is a 2 limit drink per passenger,on those, but that is fine. They also surprised us, with fresh veggie trays, fruit trays, and even an assortment, of proteins beef, lamb, salmon, nuts, and seeds, also rye, pumpernickel, and manna bread are available, plus an array of hummus and other healthy dips. Enjoy, Exercise, Express Gratitude to Someone and always Remember to Smile and say hello. It might be the only one that person has gotten that day.
I like the tranquil, atmosphere, throughout the plane, the movie that is being enjoyed by some, the board games, set up between passengers. So much room, on this plane. It is like a dream come true. Now, all we need is a place to lay our heads down for awhile, dare we ask the pilot, if a bunk or two or three is available. mmmmm, think not, the energy level is so high, I doubt if anyone will be sleeping, for too long during this flight. Relax, Enjoy, Soar the Skies Beautiful Butterflies! We have a few more days to land this plane.

I want to welcome all the new Butterflies, to the team and I want to welcome previous Butterflies, back to the team.
We are in this together, if one of us have a problem, we all do, because we fly together, so keep your eyes on the discussions, questions, exercise post and weigh in post, and if you see another Butterfly needing a boost or an answer, please be there for them and if you need a boost, don't be afraid to let us know. Set a plan for yourself, Work it to the best of your ability, and Stop by the team page, several times a day and see what is going on. It's a fun place, to be!
My plan for action, for these 8 weeks!
1. Track my food and do my exercise daily!
2. Wake Up with a Smile, and make my bed, as I get out of it, then it is done!
3. Empty my bladder, weigh myself, clean my bathroom, do my bathroom wall push ups.
4. Go to computer, check e-mail, spark, then go to living room, take my Glucose Reading,
take my meds and have breakfast.
I plan on losing 5%, plus I would like to get the extra 6.2 lbs I gained, in the two weeks between challenges off, also. I want to be able to say I lost 10% during the Sizzling Summer Challenge and the Fall Challenge.
I want to say Good Bye to the 3's and hello to the 2's for awhile and then finally hello to the 1's and say, I'm back home again, when I see those 1's, it's been at lease 46 years, so with a positive note:
1's I'm going to reach you, again! I make that promise to my body, I'm going to accomplish this!

Soar those Skies, Beautiful Butterflies, WE WILL DO THIS!

Reading these blogs, on a regular basis is very inspiring.
I get many ideas, from other people
Realizing, I don't need clutter, if I unclutter my life, it will be easier to handle
I will make an effort to do this.
Staying focused is so important, in achieving the end result, but realizing at the same time, one needs to take it a meal at a time, an exercise session at a time.
Seeing the reflection come back at you from a store window, a mirror, realizing that is you, and you are looking better. Seeing is believing. Sometimes as one becomes smaller, they do not recognize it, because it is oneself. We have to grab onto to the weight lost, claim it, to keep it. Notice the change in little things, like the size of your calfs, thighs, wrist, ring size, neck size, width of face, length of face, and especially notice you are smiling more. Keep that smile, keep a positive attitude, and live life each day to it's fullest, doing all you want to do, you live only ones.

I talked to my doctor, about taking Byetta, for diabetic control, knowing that, one side effect, could be weight lost. He agreed and I started it last Friday, but something happened to my glucose numbers, they went up and stayed up, and went over 350, one time. That made me call the doctor's office, with this info.
He called me the next morning, told me Byetta takes two-three weeks to kick in sometimes, so I was to take a half a dose of my 70/30 Novolog (which is insulin and lantus ,mixed), twice a day, and to call him on Monday, and he would either adjust the novolog or, stop it again, depending on my numbers.
I'm hardly ever hungry, and need to look at the clock and know, it is time to eat, this is important, for a diabetic, to eat at a scheduled time. I never had that problem, before. I find it kind of amusing, after all these years being a diabetic, I think this may be the right medicine, for me. We will see. I was just tested, last week and my HA1C, was 7.5 down from 8.5, would like to get it to five.
I know getting all this under control, will help, to lead a more stimulating life!
