Had a doctor's appointment last week and found out that all my labs were great, even lost 5 lbs. He reduced my blood pressure medication...
But on the bad side , my blood sugar is too low and he encouraged me to eat more. But the right things. That is going to be very hard , because most days at work, I work right thru lunch or don't have time to eat. But now I pack a healthy snack and eat in between patients.
I also changed my diet plan to the diabetic plan , which seems to help, but at the end of the day I still have a lot of calories left.
I am just disgusted with myself. I gained a lot of weight back,I could blame it on stress. But I know I have been slacking with my exercise and late night snacking.
I have 50 lbs before and I will do it again.
My husband is helping me again and he is looking to loose about 30 lbs. So we will be exercising more and getting rid of all the junk food in the house.
The doctor put me on the pasture for a couple days. I got a pinched sciatic nerve in my back. The pain is bad , going all the way down to my toes.
So I am sitting at home, staying off my feet and get bored out of my mind.
Going back to the doctor on Friday and hopefully he releases me to go back to work on Sunday.
Also got my new T-shirt today , at least something good happened.
participated in a great charity walk this last weekend. It was a 1 mile Dog Walk for Herry's kids, which takes care of children in Hospice care and helps children who have lost a loved one. It was a great day and so much fun. all the dogs were dressed up as Elvis ....
So far this new year has not been so great. My father-in-law, whom I love dearly was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and the doctor gives him about 2 months. He is taking it pretty good, but the rest of the family is freaking out. I am trying to be the calm one and they are upset about that. But they don't realize that I see and deal with this every single day in my job as Hospice Nurse. I am being realistic and want him to have the best time for the last couple weeks.
So I am trying to stay strong for my family and still keep on sparking. I am so grateful for my friends that are standing with me through all the good and bad times.
