Today's daily desk note

Thursday, April 02, 2009

Share your knowledge. Who might benefit from what you've learned so far? Acting as a mentor can strengthen your commitment to your own goals and inspire others to create positive change in their lives, too.

I had blood work this morning but won't know the results until the 11th when I see the endocrinogolist. I did see the diabetic nutritionist today and she said things were ok, but they need to find out why my BCG numbers are so high in the mornings. So I have to have milk or yogurt right before bed and do a blood count thing before bed.

I didn't do any exercise today, it's my weekend.

    I had the same problem a told my dr. and he slough me off. After trying to reajust carbs etc. nothing worked. I called the diatician and told her and she spoke to the dr. ((She is fiesty))I knew she would get things going. HEHEHE. sometimes you got to know who to go thur. I was controlled without meds for 9 years and things get out of control.

I hope they find the cause of the sugar rises and what is going on. I won't see the dr until may 12 it was july 13 but I had it bumped up.

A new month for a new me!

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

I'll try at least. I'm starting the month at 140 lbs, neck 13 - never changes, bust 41 - down 1 inch from Feb., waist 38.5 - down 1 inch from Feb., hips 42.3/4 - down 1 inch from Feb. I still have a LONNNNNNNNNG way to go here.

I have to do the 3-month blood work thing tomorrow morning then an app. with the nutritionist. Last time she said if my morning blood levels weren't down, she would thing about insulin. I do NOT want to go on insulin, I am one that doesn't have patience or time for it. I travel a lot and that is just too inconvenient for insulin on planes and in transit for 6-8 hours on layovers and where do you keep insulin when you are staying in a cheap hotel with no refrigerator?

    Be sure and tell the Dr. about your loss in inches because he wants to know that too. Sometimes it tells him you're making progress even if you think you arn't. That can make a difference which treatment your Dr. gives you.

    Good luck on the blood work tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you! Diabetes is not fun. Having come from a family that has it, I can see it's a daily challenge and I struggle all the time with being bordeline diabetic myself.

DO be encouraged by the inches lost! That's wonderful. Even when we can't see the scale move we are toning and that's every bit as important too so remember that's a good thing :)

Let us know what the doctor says when you get the results back and we'll all be thinking of you!

    you're above me in the inches. I have a long way to go to reach those marks. I think a perfect waist is 28 and the hips are 38 so you don't have that far to go to reach a perfect figure. Just a couple of inches. Just think of what you started with and where you are now. I'm sure you've made a lot of progress. I'm having trouble with my waist too. It keeps the same as my hips.

Today's Spark People Day At A Glance desk note says:
"Fish for Omega-3's. Two - three servings per week are good for your heart, brain and body. You'll find these healthy fats in ground flaxseed, soybean oil, walnuts and fatty fish (like Salmon and albacore tuna)." Well with this stupid gout thing, I can't eat flaxseeds, very limited on walnuts and fish. BUT for diabetes I'm supposed to eat fish. So go figure.

I got in my walk this moring but only 50 minutes and 2 1/2 miles. I had to go pee so I had to stop, LOL. I am getting ready to go upstairs to do my strenght training for today. Dumb bell work out today

A GREAT walk today!

Monday, March 30, 2009

What a surprise! The temps were back down in the low 70's this morning so I did 3.25 miles in 64 minutes and it felt good! If I had more water in my bottle I would have kept on walking but I didn't have money to stop at the store and there isn't anyplace else to get water along the way unless I go off my circuit and stop at the house. I also did a 20 minute Resistance band workout.

    Well it looks like you didn't sit there so you didn't get run over. If you had gone back to your house then you probably would have gotten in twice as many miles.

UGH, abscessed tooth!

Sunday, March 29, 2009

I knew that before I went to the dentist but instead of 1 I have 2 and didn't know it. Soooooooo, he gave me 2 antibiotics, 1 gel and 1 bottle of mouthwash to use and come back next Saturday and we see if it is better or we pull. Yay. THEN I have to have that thing done where they scrape between the gum and teeth, even more fun!

I did manage to do a 2 mile 30 minute WAlk Away The Pounds video this afternoon and I will get back to walking on Monday. Had to wait until most of the pain subsided.
