I have been advised that I am "pre-diabetic"...and have been such for about 5 years. I haven't done a one touch reading for a very long time and to my horror was shocked with a reading of 12.4 . I am going to have a blood test for my doctor soon and I expect she will tell me I have full blown diabetes. Since that day a I have been diligent with minimal carbohydrates (no more than 15/meal) and lots of protein over the last week and my readings are back down to 6-8 on average. The positive side effect to eating this way is that the protein and fewer carbs has really put a halt to cravings and ravenous hunger. 30-60 minutes of exercise daily has helped with that also.
I would appreciate any pearls of wisdom that you may have to offer me.
Thanks for listening!!!!!!
Real estate closings, showings, offers and big disappointments interfered with my sparking for the past few days. I know I can now come here for an emotional uplift...and I am so grateful. Thank you sparks for being a support in more ways than most people ever realize. I am excited to go out for a walk now to get some exercise, fresh air and time with my dog. I want to feed myself with some healthy choices, and will look forward to enjoying a wonderful weekend! Hope yours is too!
I attended an all day (1st of 3) workshop on investment properties today. Awesome information, but a very long and fast paced session. There were no restaurants or food available, but fortunately we brought cottage cheese & strawberries.Went to a steakhouse afterwards for dinner. I am happy I took time to track my food even though I was tempted to skip it today. I was rewarded to find that my daily percentages were EXACTLY what my doctor recommends for me. Go figure.... I must be getting back in to the groove for sure!
Have an awesome weekend!
I don't want to bore you with my day's events with tons of even more boring details...lots of one thing on top of another. Too many real estate dramas, but people pulling together to make things happen. Our dog "HARLEY" is almost the office "mascot" ...he came in with me for about 4 hours today. Good for both of us! The little things are often the big things...I'm so blessed! DH and I managed to end our day with an evening at the movies. To have his support and loving companionship empowers me!
Today was busier than I excpected. Every thing that happened became a complicated mess. In spite of the frustration, I learned that if you act with love and forgiveness, things sort themselves out and you are blessed with a sense of purpose and fulfillment. I say....bring on tomorrow!
Hugs to all!
