Happy TGIF!! I was hoping that my week would end on a whimper but oh nooooo...it blew up in my face at work. I'm dealing with it but it wasn't a pretty picture.
Nothing bad happening to me...just some last min (as in project done 2 weeks ago and NOW they make changes!?) stuff. So TGIF!!
I had a heart to heart with hubby last night. He's been hopping on to the scale every morning, and the scale stays the same of goes up a bit. His Dr says he's pre or just starting being diabetic, his feet hurt a lot after a while, and he's always tried. The Dr gave him pills for the diabetic thing but they make him woozy. He was almost in tears last night over all of this. I told him I worry about him and that we need to find SOMETHING he can do to get some exercise. And I'm going to try to cook a bit healthier. He can't do a lot of walking so the treadmill is out right now. I told him that we get his weight down, the diabetes will improve, he'll feel better. I also told him I don't want anything to happen to him. He's cut his Pepsi back to maybe one a day (some days none) and switched from Pepsi Throwback (loads of sugar) to Pepsi Max (like 0 sugars), no beer, and has stopped smoking (that was months ago). I need to find something for him to do. Any ideas out there?
At work we have a program called Healthy Tracks. We earn points for a variety of actives, like working out, eating right, attending Healthy Tracks Seminars (cooking demos, etc), getting check ups, etc. There are 3 levels, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Everyone that makes Silver gets a prize. Gold goes into a prize drawing, as does Platinum. I'm at Platinum now, so my name will go into both the Gold and Platinum levels. I picked up my Silver prize this afternoon. It's a Cool Gear Collapsible Salad To Go Set. I'm going to try and use it for my lunch everyday at work. This is what it looks like:
Karry and Nick went to Boise for a show (Nick's a great DJ!) the day before yesterday. Caleb is staying with my mom (he has football practice) and Malia went to her other grandma's house. Having both kids is a bit much for my mom, she's almost 80 after all (although she's a lively almost 80 year old). Karry and Nick will be back tonight or tomorrow.
Eating was good most of yesterday. A bit off late in the evening. Today has been OK so far, but we're going out to dinner tonight. Sushi I think, so we'll see where I end up. I'm not going to sweat it though.
OK..that will do it for now. Lets move onto the weekend!!
