Time is flying by! It will be Christmas again before you know it!
Just a quick update on what's going on with me. For the month of March, I lost 9 pounds!
I've joined a couple of challenges this month so hopefully I'll stay motivated to keep moving. Speaking of moving, the 5K training clinic is awesome! It definitely keeps me moving. I ran the Magic Mile on Thursday in 13:44. Way slower than what I use to run, but better than I expected. I have a bad knee now & it goes out on me whenever it feels like it. I've tried a brace but it's so uncomfortable. I don't want to go to my doctor because he's going to tell me to stop going to step class. That ain't happening. So, I iced my knee as often as I can & pop pain pills.
I received my steroid injection mid-month of March. Can you say USELESS??!!!!! I wanted to eat anything & everything I could get my hands on. I had a spoon in my hand & a jar of mayo. How gross is that?? Yuck! Glad my kids were there to help. Plus, the injection raised my blood glucose levels sky high for a few days. Had me scared to eat because I didn't know how much insulin to inject. I could eat a small salad & my levels would be 300+! I went from 10 - 20 units of insulin to 30-40 units of insulin. I was scared to go to sleep because I didn't know if I would wake up. I didn't want to slip into a diabetic coma! So, now I'm STILL dealing with tingling & numbness in my legs AND now a bad knee.
I should get my insulin pump started this Friday. I'm excited about that. Maybe I'll get better control of my diabetes.
I definitely need new clothes. The pants I have on today are about to slip off. Luckily I have on a long shirt because I know my butt crack is in clear view! I haven't tried to get into my smaller pants. Well, I have & some fit ok & others are still a little tight. I'm in that in between size stage.
Well, that's it for me! Have a great day!
