It's never to late to be what you might have been

Leading a health and wellness challenge program at work for the department and we are going to use SparkPeople. This should motivate me to stay on track.
Yesterday I was making pretty good choices – mostly water, no added sugar. Prednisone still messing with my blood sugar, so increased the Victoza finally – have to take lower dose for a week then up to prescribed dose. Seems to work as long as I walk after the prednisone and don’t eat much carbs. Have to do a low-carb diet to help control it.

Just talked to the nurse at the doctor’s clinic and I just have to say that they are GREAT and very responsive. The doc upped my prednisone to 10 mg/day. I know that’s not much, but it does play havoc on my blood sugar levels, so I’m going to take 5 in the am and 5 later and walk a little while after each dose, which seems to help a lot.

TGIF – am going to a dirt bike race with DH – he’s racing and I’m going to settle with a good book and computer and enjoy nature. Will walk, too. Also have to finish taxes for us and son this weekend.

Just keep on trying – not giving up. Have to take action to feel some kind of control over the parts of my life that I do have control over. That makes me feel better. Have to give the rest up to my higher power (GOD).

I'm just where I'm supposed to be today, but I'm reaching for more.
