Tue, 13 May 2014 23:57:09 EST Glucose Control http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5687408 Well today has been an interesting day to say the least, took my lantus as normal going to bed thinking nothing of it, took my normal dosage of 100 units that I've taken for the past 6 months and for the first time ever got woken up at 6am with an extremely low glucose level that I've never had before was at mmol 2.2 (mgdl 39) talk about not thinking straight, took me I don't know how long to get my fingers to work my meter and my brain to even think and I know I wasn't fully thinking straigh... Sun, 4 May 2014 19:05:15 EST Long day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5607705 Well work went well save for the fact that the office ordered pizza for the staff and though they did order a gluten free pizza for two of us - I wasn't able to eat it because they forgot that I can't have dairy so it left the pizza up for the only other gluten free person on staff (and according to him the curst was close to cardboard - which isn't uncommon) but it made me glad that I'd brought left overs from dinner. <BR> <BR> Everyone was like but its Gluten Free pizza, you can have it a... Mon, 27 Jan 2014 23:09:27 EST Eating Out with CoWorkers http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5604914 Well yesterday was my first time eating out with my coworkers and actually be completely serious when it comes to NOT having anything to do with gluten (no sampling of my mates delicious looking calamari or nanna bread - sighs. <BR> <BR> Well it went better then I was expecting, I had actually originally tweeted the restaurant asking if they had any Gluten and Dairy Free options other then a next to naked salad and got a reply tweet back that yes they did, they had about 6 options that wher... Sat, 25 Jan 2014 01:57:02 EST Three Weeks Completely GF n better Glucose Control! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5602955 Well its not been an time of it as I mentioned early I've had one melt down and since then not another melt down but several crying spells of looking at the fridge and seeing everything everyone else can eat and I can't = annoying. <BR> <BR> But I'm progressing, baby steps. Finally got around to burying the stuff in the deep freeze that they can eat and putting the stuff I can eat on top forcing me to dig down to get their foods, but making it slightly easer to look at when trying to plan m... Thu, 23 Jan 2014 03:08:06 EST Gluten n Dairy Free http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5599617 Well so far so good, had a few glitches that I did get glutened and paid for it big time, one I have no idea where it came from and another well lets say I've hidden my jam from my dad (which means gotten a new jar of it, let him have the one he contaminated and have it in the fridge among my veggies (that he will not touch). <BR> <BR> Not hard to avoid dairy, but trying to find a "creamer" for my coffee is turning out to be harder then I thought it would be. I know there are several vegan ... Mon, 20 Jan 2014 01:47:13 EST Happy New Year and an update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5589455 I hope everyone has had a good start to the new year and that 2014 brings with it good tidings for everyone. <BR> <BR> Not much to report for how things ended last year, didn't has any official weight loss I prity much held steady for all that I had lost some in the start of the year, according to my GP on her new scales I had 0 loss for the year (oh well my scale still says I lost 10 pounds and my clothing says things a going down so regardless of what her scale says - ppl who only see me ... Fri, 10 Jan 2014 17:43:02 EST FitBit Flex http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5552450 Well its been a few days since I got the FitBit Flex and though I have not been as active as I was the day after I got it, its still interesting to see what I am doing around the house (since I've actually not left the house since tuesday for various reasons) I know I'm not getting in the steps I should but its actually interesting to see how little I am doing around the house for (other then working at my computer on a few projects) I can totally see why some people who have desk jobs find t... Thu, 28 Nov 2013 22:04:24 EST Long time no post http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5551861 well its been several months since I posted anything here - though I have been active on the site using the mobile option, which doesn't allow for forum or even blog posting (most annoying since you have to pay for the app you'd hope they would have more features then just being able to track what you eat and working out plus a few articles of reading and the spark point wheel). <BR> <BR> Well in the time that I've not been n the site itself just on the app side of things no weight's been l... Wed, 27 Nov 2013 23:20:13 EST Not been around much of late http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5390500 Not been on SP much of late, mostly because been going though a world of a lot when it comes to what I can or can't eat and its been driving me a little nuts - that and some of the comments from fellow members was less then nice or understanding so thought it best to take a break from the drama. <BR> <BR> At any rate, still not back fully and am still trying to get enough into me - weight loss right now is as it is (standing still and yo-yoing) the main issue is lack of funds (no work) thus... Sun, 16 Jun 2013 02:15:36 EST No pop yet this year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5225150 Well its been since christmas since I got any pop - as in actually bought a bottle of the stuff or a case of it. Now I use to buy a 12 pack when ever it was on sale, since for the past 4 weeks plus has been every week that its been on sale (half price or better). Yet I've not had the temptation to buy it, yes I've thought about doing so but I've not had the craving for it that I once did. <BR> <BR> You see for Christmas my husband and I got the SodaStream for our family in the hope that it... Sun, 27 Jan 2013 03:13:26 EST SP for the New Year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5177164 Well one thing is for sure I am so going to try and get onto SP more then I have been over the past couple of years (alright I'll admit it since getting married my SP time has gone down till to the point that I log in once a month on average - but my weight hasn't suffered for it). <BR> <BR> I'm making it a goal for 2013 that I get back into the habit of logging into SP at least weekly if not a couple times a week and log at least one or two meals just to see how things are going - I know fr... Wed, 26 Dec 2012 22:40:23 EST Making a Goal and Hitting IT! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5172198 Well as I have posted and in my last post I said that i was 5 pounds short of my 20 pound a year goal loss - well that is actually no longer the case I have actually now made the goal that I set for my self each year. <BR> <BR> I'm pleased that I've been able to make it two years in a row and if next year goes well as this year (in general) then I'll be 10 pounds closer to my 200 pound goal weight (ya I know doc's still wont me at 160 - but if I can get close to the 200 mark and not louse m... Thu, 20 Dec 2012 16:06:20 EST Weight Loss for the Year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5146525 Well I ended last year by having hit my middle goal weight - so was very pleased. <BR> <BR> Yet like all things life happens and some of that was gained back over the course of the first part of the year - then once again things started going back in the right direction and I made the weight again and them went right on past it by 5 pounds. <BR> <BR> I'm now sitting at 5 pounds past my mid-weight goal and holding - so baring more medical issues (insulin changes, new food restrictions, etc... Sun, 25 Nov 2012 22:48:56 EST holiday season is with us yet again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5144327 Well the holiday season is with us all again and with it comes temptation of many people - I wish I could say that I had to fight temptation this season like every one else but unfortunately I don't have to deal with it as directly as most do. <BR> <BR> Which I find annoying since I already know going to any party that I can't eat what is on offer or if I can then its a non-issue what I mean is that 99% of the foods on offer are off my list of foods that I can eat having gluten and lactose... Fri, 23 Nov 2012 14:57:44 EST Updates and no change http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4769061 Well weight wise, I'm still what I was at the start of the year so no change there unfortunately, clothing still fitting as it has been so no change in sizes unfortunately - in general not been watching 100% what I eat or how much not even been really tracking, then again I've gone off tracking for the past year and change (only tracking here and there) and been alright. <BR> <BR> I guess I'm just having a period of time where I'm not as active on SP as I have been in the past and my new ye... Sat, 3 Mar 2012 19:56:58 EST A New Year Has Begun http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4667439 Well the first week of the new year has gone fair well in general, no real negatives have come to light so that is a good thing. <BR> <BR> The weight starting for the new year is 255 lbs ... not the weight I was hoping to start the new year off at but at least its not as bad as it could have been (as in no loss what so ever last year), so again for this year I have a 20 pound weight loss goal. <BR> <BR> I also am like last year job hunting, hoping for full time in my field (graphic/web des... Sun, 8 Jan 2012 23:07:29 EST back on SP and an update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4608766 Well I never really did leave it, but for the past couple of months I've not been using the site very much - most because for several months I was working 60 hour weeks and just didn't have the time to use it (and trying to use it on my phone was just one BIG #Fail). <BR> <BR> Since I've become unemployed because the company I was working at no longer needed me (got to love seasonal employment) I've not had any luck finding more work so bills piling up and in general things are getting short... Fri, 2 Dec 2011 00:51:19 EST end of the job http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4551589 Well Friday was the last day at that work place, today I gave in the equipment so now its back to sending out those resume's and hoping that something comes up before the end of the year (though not counting on it since its so late into the holiday season of hiring - but there is still a chance). <BR> <BR> So I am not counting on more weight loss this year, but not saying its not possible just not thinking its going to happen, just have to try and keep what has been lost off. Which means ge... Mon, 24 Oct 2011 21:42:31 EST Finally seeing the 240s after 20+ years http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4531525 Well I've made it into the 240s and its a little shocking to see the numbers on the scale. I've not seen that number on the scale since sometime in jr. high. I've finally broken the 250 mark on the scale and its only taken me about 20 odd years to do so. <BR> <BR> It is getting ever close to my 20 pound a year goal - so far I'm at 17 pounds loss for the year which means another 3 pounds to go for the year to reach that 20 pound goal of wight loss, which is totally doable. I am so pumped whe... Wed, 12 Oct 2011 06:21:33 EST down almost 2lbs http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4460359 Well since I last hit the scale on 7/30/2011 I've now reached my 2nd SP goal of weight loss, that I set for myself back in 2006, so I am most pleased (though didn't hit the date itself just the number but no matter I reached the goal is which is what matters). <BR> <BR> I've not really been on SP for the past month mostly because I've not have much net time which starting a new job and going though training and what have you (that and getting SP on my phone is annoying to navigate though so... Thu, 1 Sep 2011 10:37:55 EST Ribfest update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4396864 Well the Ribfest was alight, but I actually ended up eating less then I though I was going to since we didn't get the ribs like we tend to do so, we got a pound of pulled pork and well i eye balled about 6 oz of the stuff so it came in at less calories then it other wise would have dun so, I didn't even each much of the onion bloom (it just tasted wrong to me - this time round it was way to blasted grease that I just couldn't eat more then a 4th of it). <BR> <BR> So even if I over estimated ... Sun, 31 Jul 2011 00:49:44 EST Scarborough Rotary Ribfest http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4395190 Well its that time of year again time for the Ribfest, mmmmm yes delis BBQ ribs, chicken and oh so much more! <BR> <BR> This year like last Onion Blooms are going to be on sale, which is one of those delights that neither Norman or I can pass up (K we both can pass it up, but since its a once a year deal we tend not to do so without good reason). <BR> <BR> Not sure what we're going to choose this year when it comes to the ribs, but if all else fails we'll end up with what we had last year... Sat, 30 Jul 2011 01:10:24 EST Down 10 lbs for the year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4380489 Well its final I've crossed the 10 pounds down for the year (so am half way to my 20 pounds lost in a year goal), still got a good 40+ to drop but its at least progressing at a good rate (better then it has been for a couple of years) at good rate for me at any rate other would say that a pound or two loss a month is not a good pace, but for someone with PCOS who is diabetic and on insulin plus with other medical deals going on its proven to be the right/good pace for me - and since I've mana... Sat, 23 Jul 2011 03:55:31 EST Made it to the 250s! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4270001 Well its been a long while since I've seen myself in the 250 range (I last remember seeing that number in Jr. High, 21 years ago) it feels great to be seeing it again. <BR> <BR> I'm not yet at my midterm weight goal that of being 250 on the dot, but I am 9 pounds closer to that number, which is closer then I have been since I got serious about getting the weight off (once I learned that it could come off). <BR> <BR> I know it's time that I post a newer photo of the me from when I started S... Wed, 1 Jun 2011 12:46:17 EST Rest in Peace http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4235258 Well its been a hard weekend and an end of a hard week in general. <BR> <BR> Thursday May 12th 2011, I was forced to take Griff to the vet and have him sleep the final sleep. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/8/l380429509.jpg"> <BR> <BR> I didn't wont him to go, I didn't wont to agree with the vet that it was time and in short I didn't wont to say goodbye to a companion who has been there though thick and thin in my life. <BR> <BR> But it was time, it wasn't ri... Mon, 16 May 2011 01:45:22 EST 2nd Wedding Anniversary http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4206219 Well two years ago today Norman and I got married, its been a long couple of years for us - though feeling like we've been married longer then just two years. <BR> <BR> The day started off late for us, having slept in a little and having a fast breakfast (not an overly healthy breakfast, we each had a backed chicken spring roll) then our for a couple hours walk. <BR> <BR> Got back home changed into our "dinner" clothing and walked the 1 km to the restaurant to have our anniversary meal. ... Mon, 2 May 2011 23:41:28 EST Ramdomness http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4156497 Well its been a little bit since I last posted, so figured it was time to do so again, not that I have a specific topic to write on, hence the title of randomness. <BR> <BR> Anyhow, with the weather getting better there has been more talk about getting my bike out of storage and getting back into riding and now that N also has a bike (he got it last year from a friend of ours who didn't wont it any longer) we're both set to get out and go riding (save he's not been on a bike in like 20 years... Sun, 10 Apr 2011 21:06:12 EST spur of the moment 5k walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4130544 It wasn't anything that was planned and neither N (hubby) or I worked out way up to doing it, but out of the blue N asked is I wonted to walk to Canadian Tire to see if they we could pick up the Toppsy Turvy thing for our garden (we wont to grow a few veggies, to help cut our veggie costs) and at 10.00 a container well its within budget to do so. <BR> <BR> We could have driven over to get it, but I don't like driving and at the current cost of gas its actually outside of the funds we have o... Wed, 30 Mar 2011 23:26:43 EST 5lbs down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4111638 Well since the start of the year to Monday morning I've lost officially 5 pounds <BR> <BR> Which would make my total weight loss that of 35 pounds since I started on SP April 2006, with over 40 inches loss over my body in total of which 30+ has been from my core. <BR> <BR> Progress is slow, the PCOS and being post menopausal has had its impact on the weight loss, as has getting use to taking multi injections of insulin a day ... but progress is being made, still have 41 pounds to go before... Wed, 23 Mar 2011 01:28:47 EST Busy and High Calorie 3 Day Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4103468 Well last week Norman and I had a rather busy and long three day weekend, you see we signed up to do a local convention as security. <BR> <BR> Well it started off getting up at 6:30 am Friday morning so we could get the rest of our gear together (food stuff for the day mostly), after that we headed out to catch local transit because it was going to on average an hour and a half trip to the con on local transit. <BR> <BR> We arrived and got assigned out shirts and radios for the three days ... Sat, 19 Mar 2011 18:04:58 EST Fast food reminders http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4017799 Well I'm living with the reminder of why I don't eat at Harvies much anymore or have take up for that matter much - sighs, wish N and I had been able to go to the restaurant we had hopped to go to for Valentines Day Dinner, but it wasn't to be, so the planned 500 calories for dinner didn't happen instead we used a gift card for Harvies and well 1,000 plus calories later I'm paying for it. It has been two years since I ate there in full that I had forgotten what it could do to me (and its not ... Mon, 14 Feb 2011 19:22:06 EST The Big C Word, known as Cancer http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4012544 Well got the call yesterday from the vet in regards to Griff, yes it is Cancer its 100% confirmed. The vet and I did talk while there and reviewing the xrays, and I said then that the only treatment I've give him would be natural as possible, nothing out of way or high pocket book based. <BR> <BR> I went the high pocket book and drugs and what not with my first pup and all it did was give her an extra year of life that wasn't very good for her, she wasn't able to enjoy it and it hurts me to... Sat, 12 Feb 2011 18:51:39 EST Bad News http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4009352 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/5/l951546198.jpg">Sighs <BR> <BR> Well so much for taking him to the Vet for some good news, well there was good news but got some unexpected bad news from left field. His paw is doing good and the claw should grow back without issue, only thing is he might not live long enough for it to do so. <BR> <BR> Ya while checking him out a toumer was found in his belly, xray showed the mass is close to his spleen blood tests will conferm if it is o... Fri, 11 Feb 2011 11:14:17 EST Update on Griff http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4007339 Well as some might know if you've followed me on my main blog, last month Griff tore out one of the nails on his hind paw and it got rather bloody/messy. he's been on antibiotics to help with any infection he might have contracted plus he has been getting a pain powder that we've been applying to his paw then wrapping it all up. <BR> <BR> He's got a visit to the vet later to day to see how things are progressing, he's still bleeding to a degree from the toe so it has not yet healed over and...

But I did meet my goal of a pound loss for the month, might not be great for some people, but for me its something since I am so use to going months without the scale moving in either direction never mind going on the down and staying down (at least for the past 3 years since hitting menopause). <BR> <BR> Anyh...

It is hard to pick out just one song that I like above all others. But one song that might have that spot is Self Control by Laura Brannigan its been one of my fav songs since high school, ever since I read a few of the lyrics in a novel that caught my attention. <BR> <BR> But there are other songs, that I also like depending on my mood or what is going on in my life at any given point in... Sat, 29 Jan 2011 16:35:27 EST My Veggie Cakes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3948965 My take on Corn Cakes, great for picnics, parties, snacks and as sides for meal. This is something that I tend to do up wish a meal because it gives me my starch and a veggie all in one package also it makes enough that I tend to have enough left over for an evening snack or something to take with me the next day for lunch that will hold me over. <BR> <BR> They take about 20 Minutes to Prepare and Cook and come in at 179 Calories each, Cholesterol 53.8 mg, Sodium 74.4 mg, Potassium 88.5 mg...

This is a funny topic because its something I do get asked at least once a year by various people who are either getting to know or who have known me for a time but don’t remember why I have the nicks that I have. <BR> <BR> So I’ll start with the nick that my dad calls me which is Muffin he’s been calling me that as long as I can remember as to ...

Wed, 8 Dec 2010 04:05:45 EST Working 9 to 5, first time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3715463 Well since I got told that I was a type 2 diabetic I've not worked a full time or even part time job of the 9 to 5 sector base, not because of being diabetic just because I've not found work till now in that area. <BR> <BR> But now that I have found work, I am faced with how will I manage my diabetes, how will I manage taking my insulin and on top of all that how will I manage the IBS that is part of my daily life thanks to the diabetes drug that I am on. <BR> <BR> In a couple of weeks I ... Thu, 14 Oct 2010 15:46:31 EST My 33rd Birthday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3689748 Well today I turn 33 and thus far its been a good birthday all in all, Norman took me out for brunch slightly over did it on the carbs but only just (ate one to may of my fav sesame seed balls - got 4 ate 3). But all in all for brunch I did well in general, just over 1000 calories for the meal itself - ya an all you can eat deal can be hard to actually get an accurate count of what was eaten in general but I think I got fair close in general even if I didn't - I don't really care since its a ... Sun, 3 Oct 2010 20:04:22 EST Still Learning About My Diabetes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3562906 Well I found out why I was really out of it when I started to drive home from my ex's place of work with N I'd only taken in 80 cals for breakfast. I do NOT know what was I thinking only taking in that amount of calories for breakfast, I know it wasn't that high in cals yes, but I didn't think it was that little (I though at least 100 cals). If we'd had PB in the house I would have had that with the carrots or at least has it on bread to give my body a better carb load to work from, but there...

Then again 100 bucks would pay bills and a lot of other things more then clothing w...
