Drinking calories

Monday, February 24, 2014

It is amazing how many calories you can drink in one day if you are not careful. I normally only drink coffee, brewed teas and water, occaisionally a diet soda. Today with my lunch I saw Ocean Spray Cran-Grape drink in the vending machine and that sounded awfully good and sweet. Lordy, it has 120 calories per serving, if you drink the whole bottle, that is 240 calories just in a bottle of juice! It is only 15% juice on top of that.

    You are so right on that one! I am trying so very hard to not have any calories in liquid form. And "juices" are the worst. People think they are good for you, but they have as much sugar as soda.

    I once drank orange juice while I was sick and couldn't believe that it was equivalent in calories to a typical lunch!! So crazy. Way to go with tracking it all!

Progress and Success

Monday, January 13, 2014

Slowly but surely I am making progress with the blood sugar control. I went to the doc in September and the A1c number was 10.5 which is extremely too high. Normal should be betwee 6.5 to 7. I went to the doc again on Jan. 3. She had put me on insulin and I got scared and depressed. I dropped from 277 pounds in September to 246 in November. I packed on 10 pounds, mostly because i felt discouraged and depressed because my blood sugars were what I though were too high. Granted they are high but the doctor is pleased that they are a lot lower then what they were. So I get blood word done at the beginnging of this month and I almost jumped for joy when the doctor told me I have my A1c down to 8. So the insulin is working. I was put on another pill and she told me when my blood sugar drops a little more and i lose 10 more pounds, I am going to back down my insulin dose. I have to keep reminding myself that diabetes didn't happen over night. It took years for me to develop this and it is not going to get better quickly. It all takes time.

Added some weight, not going to fret!

I added some weight over the holidays and during my 3 months of mandatory overtime. Not going to worry about it though. Just have to buck up and get back on track!

Holy Cow, I can jog!

Monday, October 21, 2013

I didn't think i could but I did! Last night my blood sugar was a little high because i bartended at the Legion Post for the Bengals game and ate some junk food. When i got home after dinner it was high so i decided to go for a fast, brisk walk. I walked a mile then started back home and thought what the heck, let's jog and see how it feels. I jogged for about 1 minute. Not fast, just enough to get me out of breath lol I did that in short spurts all the way home. It wasn't much and i didn't feel like i was going to have a heart attack like i did when i tried that 2 months ago. I am making strides of my goal for being able to jog for half a mile to a mileby the end of next spring.
