updating my blog and it has been a while!!!

Thursday, September 20, 2007

I have increased my cardio to 40-45 min on the stationary bike, also I have begun to use the Leslie Sansome WATP, Walk Slim etc dvd more. I have been doing the 2 milers but because I have asthma along with diabetes I will have ease into the three miler with caution. But I will get there with time. I have also have been lifting weights (hand weights) I started out with the 2 pounds (for over a year) so this past 2 weeks I purchased a 3 lb weight. Hey it is a beginning. I will look into some articules and vidoes here on sp about strength training.I will increase my strength training with time also. The pilates that I use are great and I love them. The only thing about them are they make me sleepy and relaxed after I do them. I will look into purchasing some new ones(that probably will be tax time). I have noticed that for the week since I have increased my workout time that my blood sugars have gotton better and are in more range. Usually they run around 90-120. I want them down and they have been down so far. Yesterday in the morning it was 72(GREAT). I will keep moving inspite of asthma and anything else the enemy want to thur at me. THIS IS WAR and I am declaring war on diabetes. I may move like a turtle but I will keep moving. Still I am grateful for being able to have a dr who will listen to me and work with me )I praise God for that. I also am grateful for Sparkpeople. My water intake was awful because the water from the sink was nasty but I brought a water filter thingy and I have no excuse for not drinking water. I am currently drinking 5 glasses. Yes I know that I should drink more but this is a beginning. So there is life after diabetes and I believe that I am living proof that you can manage it with hard work and prayer.

I will look into some vitamins etc to help myself. Until next time.......

  Hello! Thanks for the encouraging words.~ On exercise and diabetes,
a couple of my family members have diabetes, and I'm amazed at how
exercise helps regulate their blood sugar. It's one of the most
important things for them. So, great job keeping working out! ~
You're such a faithful teammember, by the way. It's wonderful to
have your steady presence on the challenges. ~ Keep going! Take care, Shawn

    Hey there, it sounds like you're doing great! Just remember in then old fable....the turtle beat the hare! I have asthma too, so sometimes exercise can give me trouble. Keep up the great work, and let God be your strength!

A Weight loss prayer

Sunday, September 16, 2007

A wonder friend posted this prayer and I want to read it when I grow weak or weary.

A PRAYER FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Father God, I come to you in the precious name of jesus that you will perform a mirculous healing in my life concerning my desires to lose weight.
Thank you Lord that nothing is impossible with you and that you can help take away my desire to overeat, and fill the voids within me that cause me to seek food as a substitute.

Lord, touch my mind right now, help me to see what causes me to overeat, give me a strong desire to want to take care of my body and see it as you Lord. help me to make the right food choices and touch my mind with creativity concerning food and what I eat. May I be restored to divine health again.

As I strive to do this Lord, please bless all within me-my cells, and my metabolism- that they will function properly so I can lose the weight. and let me take it one day at a time and not worry about anything else but cares of the day that I woke up to.

Thank you father for loving me enough to help me through this.

AMEN Posted by spiritangel37. I sure needed to her this after the day I had.

Today is Friday weight day. I have been struggling to stay away from chips. For the first time my blood sugars were 83 they were running in the ninties. But I want them close to normal as possible.


Starting today I will have increase my stationary biking riding to 40-45 minutes for at least 4-5 days a week.

I will also use pilates for exercise, my heel is given me some trouble and I will have it checked on at my next dr. appointment. Until them I will use seated aerobics listed on my favorites articules. I will not be able to do WTAP even though it really burns up the calories. I am sad for that, but I am going on anyway.

I will increase my veggies intake from an estimate of 3 to 6 a day. My fruit intake will have to stay at 3 because of the diabetes.

I will have to invest in a filteration system because our water tasts awful and I don't drink it. It makes me sick. That way I will be able to drink more water instead of buying bottled water which is very expensive.

I will also try to post more often but I'll have to get used to blogging.

Another pound gone today which is my weight day. I have been in cal range about 2 weeks (I don't want to junx it if there is such). I exercise pretty good. But the fiber intake is fleeing me. I am determined to keep working on it. To date I weight 172.6. Praise God for giving me strength to endure these goals

  


A GUIDE TO QUICKER WEIGHT LOSS FROM SONOMA DIET IN EMAIL EVERYDAYHEALTH.COM

Saturday, August 11, 2007

I KNOW IT NOT GOING TO HAPPEN OVER NIGHT. I AM A REALIST. IT WILL TAKE DESCIPILINE, PLANNING, PRAYING ETC. IF I FIND SENSIBLE TIPS I AM BLOGGING THEM, AND JOTTING THEM DOWN.

BUY FOOD INSTEAD OF PACKAGES.

1. BUY ONLY FRESH FOOD FOR A WEEK, MEAT AND FISH FROM THE BUTCHER, FRUITS AND VEGGIES FROM THE PRODUCE SECTION, WHOLE GRAINS FROM THE HEALTH-FOOD STORE BIN. I BUY FROM THE GROCERY STORE BUT I READ LABELS LIKE CRAZE NOW.

WHEN YOU BUY FOOD INSTEAD OF PACKAGES YOU GET RID OF UNWANTED PROCESSING, REFINED GRAINS, AND ADDED HYDROGENERATED FATS, MYSTERIOUS CHEMICALS FROM GETTING INTO YOUR DIET.

2. EAT MORE CHICKEN AND FISH FOR PROTEIN THAN RED MEAT, BEANS OR EGGS.

3. SKIMP ON YOUR PLATE USE SMALLER PORTIONS.

4. EAT SLOWLY-THIS WILL HELP YOU EAT LESS AND POSSIBLE MAKE YOU FEEL FULLER.

5. CHOOSE MOST OF YOUR VEGETABLES THAT ARE MORE NUTRIENT/DENSE WITH FEWER CALORIES.

6. LIMIT SNACKS TO NUTRIENT DENSE VEGGIES IF THAT IS ENOUGH TO GET YOU TO THE NEXT MEAL.

7. DRINK YOUS SNACKS: HAVING A CUP OF HOT TEA OR WATER. YOU MAY NOT BE MORE HUNGRY THAN THRISTY AS LONG AS YOU'VE NOT REACHING FOR YOUR NEXT MEAL IN STARVE MODE. THOSE UNEATEN CALORIES WILL PAY OFF.

8. START EXERCISING. IF YOU ARE ALREADY EXERCISING, KICK IT UP A NOTCH.
