Happy New Year!

Thursday, January 01, 2009

Happy New Year Spark people! A new year, a new me! At least I am going to try for a new me. We went to the bookstore today (It's not a holiday here, just another weekend day) and I got 2 journals so I'll see which one works better. I am sitting on my stability ball as I type but I don't think this will work well at all. It's more comfortable than my chair but it's too low for the monitor level & keyboard level.

New Year's Eve there were no parties, no whistles, no bells, no fireworks, no nothing. It was dead quiet here. I was stitching in the new year, DH was in bed asleep. I'm having beans & cormbread for dinner.

It's dark, overcast, humid and yucky today. It splotted water this morning while we were driving but just a few drops.

Cheers friends!

    I babysat my grandson and asked my mom to come down and look after him while I went to bed. They talked about the ball but they didn't show it on tv. They were very disappointed. Mom left and my grandson stayed up. I woke up at 12:00 and asked him to get to bed. He came right in. I had to make room for him on my bed. Its just a 1 bedroom apt. He was excited because he had never stayed overnight at my place before. He thought that was really a treat. I thought so too. We didn't have bells or anything but I'm sure his mom and aunt did since they went out together. I did celebrate today by having a coffee from starbucks today.

Cross stitch finish!

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

Woo Hoo! I finished a cross stitch WIP(work in progress) last night that I started last Christmas! Now to figure out what to make it into.

I need to sit down today and start my Healthy goal list for 2009. I want to make a daily exercise list of which exercises to do on which day and start a menu plan.

Blood sugar level has come down a bit again

If I didn't know better, I'd say we were going to have a huge rainstorm. It's dark, grey, overcast and humid, one of those curl up and settle in with a good cross stitch project.

Really disappointed

Sunday, December 28, 2008

I had a dr. apt. last night, I gained 5 lbs. I am really bothered by that since I exercised, there were NO parties, NO cookies, NO sweets here. I can even feel that 5 lbs and I can see it. My blood sugar levels have been up too the past few days. SO I guess the only thing to do is to sit down, make a menu, make a daily exercise schedule and start a journal.
I know I could keep the journal here on spark people, but I believe in the right to free speech and if I want to use those nasty 4 letter words, it's my business and they shouldn't censor me.
I also got an appointment for January 3 with the endocronogolist (sp) to have my blood work done.
I still walk 5 days a week, do strength training 3 days a week but Dr. wants me to go to 4 days a week for the exercises.
So can I have another pity party for a couple days and start new in January?

    My blood sugars were so good while I was in the hospital. Even while eating they were 103 which I thought was excellant. However since coming home my numbers have been high and i haven't been able to exercise like I used to. Until I get my knee well I will just have to grin and bear it. Do you think you are going high on starches like Potatoes, or bread, or other things that starches are in? Just a thought. I know how that can make them higher. However I'm sure you know what you're doing with your diet routine. Good Luck and maybe if you step up the exercise it will help. I was doing 2 hrs. a day for 5 days a week and it kept it in check.
