eat a lot, gain a little?

Thursday, July 21, 2011

well 3 days of a hurry up and rush trip to my brothers in nc and my 96 yr old aunts in va didn't help. i did well on the road and at the fast food stops but not at the seafood resturant. i ordered crab salad but it came w/red potato salad and some of the best cole slaw i have ever had. way too much but didn't clear my plate (but close). came home and i have gained my 5 lbs lost back. i did not walk and only did my exercises one morning. so between the 2. today i am back in my saddle so hopefully that will get going on my 5 lbs again (and again and again)

Friday, June 24, 2011

i found a set of simple exercise in a recent prevent diabetes mag that i am physically able to do. i have now done them 4 days in a row, plus walked anywherre from 10 to 35 minutes. maybe i am on a roll. hope so. this is my 5th week and i still have not lost any weight, but my blood sugars are much lower, too low, sometimes. today i was a walmart picking up some fresh fruit and i started feeling funny and took it and i was at 51. have reduced my insulin don't know what else to do. will see dr soon and see if she has any ideas.

    I was walking outside and got really bad shin splints. Took my workout inside and actually doing well. Bought a used recumbent bike off of Craigslist which helped while I healed. Every little bit counts!!
