Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Today is January 1, 2013 and here are a few of my goals for this year:

Practice patience a little more.
Help a total stranger at least once a month.
Tweak my attitude just a little more
Keep Diabetes II at bay
Drink more water
Keep cholesterol and triglycerides in check
Keep high blood pressure in check
Exercise more

These are a few of my 2013 goals and I hope to accomplish them all.

I am practicing patience more and taking things more in stride.

In January: I gave a young girl that I did not know a donation toward her nursing degree in honor of my deceased niece (who passed away from cancer) who was an LPN working toward her RN degree when she passed.

In February: I gave a cancer patient a donation toward a new pair of glasses which she could not afford due to her mounting chemo bills.

My attitude still needs tweaked.

Try as I may, I cannot keep diabetes at bay...will probably be going on meds soon.

I am now up to 8 glasses of water a day. Yay!

Haven't had a cholesterol check yet this year.

BP is super...Yay!

I am exercising more because I wanted to try to keep the diabetes at bay.

That is an update on my 2013 goals.



Patience is a virtue

In March I donated money to a young gentleman that was involved in a head-on collision and was in serious condition. There are tremendous dr bills and hospital bills.

My attitude still needs work.

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in March. I am now on metformin. Not doing so well with that. Having a hard time adjusting to the meds and the turmoil going on in my body. Have no energy and sick to my stomach a lot.

I do drink lots of water.

Still no cholesterol check yet this year.

BP is excellent.

This is my update for now.

    Do you use your tracker to keep up with how much cholesterol you are eating? I set mine up for that and sodium. Those goals look good to me and very do-able.

Oh....what did I do?

Friday, December 21, 2012

My back is hurting so bad....what did I do? I don't remember doing anything out of the ordinary other than getting another day older. LOL

No I know that you really don't have to do anything extraordinary to get your back out of whack. I put an icepack on it first thing this morning and later I took a nice warm shower and took a couple ibupro and it is feeling some better. I did not do my regular exercises of stretching, bending, yoga, and aerobics but I did do my stationary bike for 30 minutes therefore I don't feel guilty.

Hope everyone that visits my blog has a super weekend.

    Who knows what happened. I would have preferred the heating pad on a chilly day like we are having. Take it easy and hopefully tomorrow it will feel better.

Always excitement!

Thursday, December 20, 2012

I knew I had to take my Mom to get her glasses before the end of the year...(for Medicare purposes) and the lady said they would be in Thursday and we could come get them anytime after Thursday. Well she called me this morning and said they did not come in today but they should be in tomorrow. Therefore I decided since I don't have to go anywhere I will get some goodies made for Christmas. I am right in the middle of making the treats and she calls and says they came in late this afternoon and if we got there before 4:00 we could get them today. Sooooo....turn off the oven, turn off my range top and get myself ready and get over to get my Mom and my Dad (because he can't stay alone) and off we go to the opthamologist's office. I mean the wind here today is terrible and the rain has really come down and my car was being whipped but we made it to get her glasses and we (hopefully) don't have to get out in the snow which is coming tomorrow. Wheew!

    Snow. Wow! It's super sunny with blue skys today and a chilly breeze. Supposed to go below 40 tonight. No snow though. Be careful with your treats and enjoy the weekend.
