Okay. Either I have to get healthy enough so I no longer have Type 2 diabetes, or I have to learn how to eat with it. Actually, it's probably learning to eat with it and then, hopefully, getting over it. I think I'll ask around and see how ot... Read more
Try, try again! :)
I just totally fell off the wagon. There are many reasons but who cares about those? The thing is that it's time to get going again. Today, I'm at 188.0 -- considering how bad I've been, that could be worse.
I got put on some diabetes ... Read more
Getting "over it" and moving on
I've almost entirely stopped entering my food and weighing in. This is exactly how I've failed so many times in the past. Mind you, I'm still sticking to it and it does show, much to my surprise, but in a way, it is good that I can see what ha... Read more
Dang, I thought my calories might be low today but they're actually in my range. What drove it so far up there so fast? I used a tablespoon of olive oil on roasted veggies and I had a small avocado on my salad at lunch -- the two made up al... Read more
Wow, what a crazy couple days! Test, errands, and of course, right in the middle of all that, a job offer. All great news but dang, all that stuff sure can rock your world!
Today's my birthday and for the first time since I was a littl... Read more
Had to see the phlebotomist today and now, we wait to see how I've done the past week. She took about five vials of blood, so I assume they're checking more than my blood sugar. I like my doctor but I am used to ones who tell me what they're g... Read more
Don't worry; bee happy
Sometime, like today, I need a reminder :-)
Tomorrow, I go to the doctor for the fasting blood sugar. I go fairly late, which is good from here because it'll be 9 or 9:30 before I can get out of the house and it takes about 1.5 hours on... Read more
I forgot! Uh, what happens when the whole thing changes, like, for the weekend???? Arghhhh . . .
OKOK, so, I have more time and that means I can . . . .
- do some housekeeping
- plan next week's menus and maybe cook and freeze a c... Read more
Oh, I should also mention
I intended only to work on eating healthy this week, kicking up my exercising next week (while continuing to eat healthy), and then really pushing on the job hunting. But there's this one other little thing -- I am ABD (all but dissertation) on... Read more
My eating's going very well. Before, I was eating healthy but then adding all kinds of *stuff', like chips, pop, cookies, brownies -- you get the drift. I just cut those and started eating more veggies and fruit and now, I just need to get mor... Read more
Greatful for small favors ;-)
I swear, if I didn't get email reminders that I'm "doing" Spark, I would forget! How the heck can one forget to do healthy things? I dunno, but I do it soon as other things are on my mind. Maybe next week, I'll make remembering about me one o... Read more
Okiedokie, so I'm not going to be devoting every waking moment to changing diet and exercise. I think I'll go get that needed haircut and buy myself a scale (if I can find one at a good price -- maybe I'll just shop online, but the haircut requ... Read more
First day of rest of my life
Yesterday, I shopped and got plenty of veggies and some ground flaxseed, too. I had already been eating veggies but now I need to stop drinking sodas (or having anything with high fructose corn syrup) and pump up fiber in my diet.
Those ... Read more
