At the starting gate...
Sunday, May 12, 2013
Ok, it's Mother's Day, my birthday is in a few days - 56 - and I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 1 1/2 years ago. I can't seem to get my blood levels right with meds, I really need to do this for me! My husband and I own two small businesses and work 7 days a week to keep our heads above water. It seems life is always a struggle. We live in a beautiful area but never get to enjoy it because we are always working or too tired. I want to change so much, but getting my health in order is top on my list - can't forget bills however. Somehow I'm going to find a balance.
I love that I found this site. the food tracker is awesome! I have needed someone to help me with what foods I should eat and not. This looks like it will help in that area.
My medical group has never told me to test my blood, currently I only get the test in the office every 3 months, but I feel I need more. We haven't had health insurance for years, but applied and it should have kicked in May 1st. Maybe now I can get some answers to my questions.
I also started the ap 'Moves' on my phone. It keeps track of my steps - that is really cool. I downloaded the Sparkpeople ap too. I'm gonna make this work!
