Seeing some progress! I've been being consistent with my eating and exercise since I was diagnosed with diabetes on March 20, and I can already see some payoff! At last week's weigh-in, I had lost 1.8 lb. and this morning, on my weekly weight... Read more

Okay, starting fresh on the whole nutrition issue. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes on Monday so I am trying to learn a whole new way to eat. Things that I thought were healthy food are apparently SO not healthy for diabetes. My blood sug... Read more

It's been a good day. Early walk with my pup along the river. Had a good breakfast and got in my water. I had a doctor appointment this afternoon, so while out I stopped at the store for some more veggies.
It is so hot outside I have t... Read more

September 4; Day full of temptations
Well, this was one of those days that seemed to be cravings for junk food all day long. I wanted pizza. I wanted chips. Ice cream. Nothing tasted good. Water especially, lol. I had to force down the healthy food.
I had to remind myself... Read more
It's a beautiful evening, in the 70's this evening. I enjoyed a walk with my pup, and the sunset over the river that I can see from my window. Cool morning walks and evening walks along the Ohio River are a gift. Setting out on a healthy life... Read more
It's been a good day for the food and exercise; got in the water but it was a push toward evening. The temperature only got up to 81 today, yay! So much nicer than the 90's. The pup and I enjoyed our walk this morning when it was still in the ... Read more

First day of September! Makes me feel that fall is on the way, my favorite season. It was in the 80's today, a definite improvement over the recent heat.
I've done well with my eating and exercise today, though I still need to get in so... Read more

Still doing well on my challenge so far. I have a few thousand steps to get in this evening to meet my personal daily goal. But the eating and water are going well, and I'm getting in the aerobic and strength training goals for the challenge. ... Read more

Hope everyone is having a great day. Up early this morning for a walk with my pup before it got too hot. I love walking along the river, and Riley enjoys the chance to run at the end of the leash, try to chase birds and leaves blowing along th... Read more

Another hot day coming up! Most of my exercise will be taking place inside again today, but that's okay. I love fall, and remind myself every day that it can't be all that far off. Breakfast, my first couple of glasses of water and walking th... Read more
Doing well! I ran out of time to blog for a couple of days there. The eating healthy is an adjustment but not as difficult so far as getting in enough water! Of course I have the occasional cravings for something disgustingly unhealthy, but I ... Read more
Starting a new challenge!
I have been diagnosed as prediabetic. Since I have already had a heart attack back in 2013, I will use lifestyle changes to prevent or put off becoming fully diabetic, and also to prevent another heart attack. I'm fairly psyched about this cha... Read more

Just finished getting my 10,000 steps for the day at 10pm! I'm having to do them throughout the day as my breathing doesn't allow me to do the whole thing at once, but hey, I'm getting them in! The eating is tough; it's always difficult for me... Read more
