I appreciate you all adding to my birthday joy!

PS: I had another Sleep Test last night. This one was a Split C/Bi Pap test. I thought I did well, but then I came home and slept for about 3-4 hours. We shall see. I still only have the Concentrator. But that's more than I've had the last 5 or more months.
Luvies,
Renie

PPS: OOPS! Almost forgot these Birthday Wishers from my personal account:

    Renie, hi !
I have been faithful, but you seem to have forgotten me. It's hard to keep friends when they don't blog. I had computer problems too.
Anyway, my question to you today is this:
Who are you doing this Spark thing for? If you aren't trying hard enough, remember that diabetes leads to many diseases, blindness, loss of legs, asthma, stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure, ect. All of us on spark fall off our routine, but you are in a very vulnerable situation so why aren't you putting yourself on the top of your list? I am not saying this to hurt you, but help you. I have been to hell and back in many illnesses. I was partially crippled for 15 years, most people don't come back eva

HELLOOOO! I'M BACK!

Friday, August 01, 2014

I finally got my computer fixed so I could use this site again.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I was about going nuts having to use RENIESSPARKIN2 until now.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

I just wish I could have transferred my new info onto my former site.
emoticon

At least I'm now back and can get on with my business.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Luv you all and have missed you!

    You can transfer if you had a flash drive, and went to office max . You may need both computers. And if all they could do was put stuff on your flash drive, take it to best buy & they will do the rest. I am glad your computer is better! I had 6 months worth, and each month after work it kept getting worse.. watch out for going into people's blogs especially if they send you into other sites. Viris can piggy back on good sites without you knowing it, don't read emails you don't know, and take yourself out of all the tracking on each site you are in like twitter, google, face book, your email, ect...eva

Oops! Wake Up Call

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I've caught myself making a major gaffe!

I've been so hot with our weather here in northern Utah, that I started drinking McD's Caramel Frappes! Can you believe a diabetic would be so foolish?
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well, I just posted my intake on my SP Food Counter and ... gasped with horror.
emoticon emoticon

Wake up call time!!! emoticon

Losing my health and eyesight are not worth the momentary pleasure.
emoticon

Time to get tough with myself. emoticon

Encouragement accepted. emoticon

Hope all of you are doing well and not falling in to the same pitfalls. Have a great day!

Luv you all,
Renie

    Anything that up's your blood sugar damages you, even excessive salt, processed foods, and white flour items. Its amazing how many things, diseases can develop to take you down in diabetes. emoticon eva

    Oh, thank you, everyone! I've sure learned a hard lesson. I'd hate to start having the 'sawbones' start hacking at my feet, etc.

Love you all for your support, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    As you know that it can also cause you to lose limbs too so that is also another thing to think about when you want one of those things. emoticon emoticon

    OH girlfriend, good you tracked it so your eyes were opened. You're right that, to me too, the momentary pleasure isn't worth the health risk as a diabetic!

HUGS and glad you caught yourself!

    So know the feeling!! I used to guzzle slushies when it got hot! What a calorie bomb those are -pure sugar and syrup! I am saved now though. There is no confectionery near where I live and also the weather is usually too cold to be interested in one more often then not.
You are going to have to try natural iced lemonade or tea to refresh yourself! They also have flavors you can add to water on the market too now..
You know what you have to do, you can do anything you put your mind to! You are woman! You are strong!

    What I try to do is track treats ahead of time. That way I know exactly what I'm in for and if it's worth the calories.

I'm sure though that if you want to resist you're strong enough to do it. emoticon

Wow! Who knew?

Friday, July 11, 2014

I can hardly believe it, but ...

Since I've been getting the shots to build my immune system and get rid of the miserable hives, I'VE BEEN FEELING BETTER and doing better with my diabetes as well.

I've been able to increase the number of steps I take each day!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
... and help my friend walk her new dog, Charlie, several times each day.

Who knew getting healthy and happy could be so much fun?
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I even made it through our heatwave--even though I had to cut down on how much time I spent outside. Thank Heaven for Fellowship Manor with its long halls, steps,Wii games and penthouse area.

We were able to go on the roof walkway and see all the fireworks for the 4th of July from the North to the West to the South horizon on one side. Then see the East side where the high schools and University are with their grand displays. They lifted our hearts and made us feel like kids again.

I'm enjoying life and hope you are too! emoticon

So very sorry they can't get that oxygen and bi-pap sorted out, that is truly outrageous. Whose cage can you rattle to be your advocate? Surely there is someone with pull that can shake things up? Like a politician responsible for health care, etc.
