I am making lemonade today. Well actually I am making plans. Things in my life aren't going quite the way I would want. Hence I am making lemonade out of my lemons. They aren't terribly bad. I'm not sick, no one is dying, I'm still working. Things just seem to be falling just short of where I would like them to be.
I just learned my grade in Chemistry is a B. I was 1.35 points from making an A. Now B's are good. But I am going to apply to nursing school in August and competition for this plan is fierce. I'm going to apply anyway and hope for the best. But I am also signing up to retake the two courses this fall I made B's in, just in case I don't make it. Then I will reapply in Feb. if needed. Not what I want to do, but it would work.
I am also rethinking my stand with diabetes. Diagnosed in Feb. I tackled it pretty strongly. My doctor felt we were moving on the right track, when my body goes into protest mode and I can't seem to get my blood sugar numbers to behave for very long. I'm trying to do stay off of insulin as long as I can, and hopefully stop taking the oral medicine too, one day. After re-evaluation, I've decided to ask my doctor to recommend a dietitian or nutritionist. I've also decided to up my walking. Something will work out and if not, then I will makes other plans to get this under better control.
My weight is coming off, but it is soooo slow that I am thinking I must have the metabolism of a sloth. Still, it is coming down and at the very least, heading in the right direction. I am thinking the extra walking and hopefully the nutritionist too, they will help ramp up my metabolism,
And on the other hand, making lemonade for the Memorial Day weekend isn't a bad plan either! Well, sugar-free anyways!
