Haven't given up!

Monday, September 09, 2013      1 comments

No, I haven't given up, and I haven't surrendered! I have, however, lost 30 lbs since last December (weight via Dr.'s office scale). My A1C is 6.1. I am doing well enough that my doctor has taken me off of 1 of the 2 diabetes medications th... Read more

Paleo Whatzizit?

Saturday, April 28, 2012      2 comments

Ok, so today should have been day #3 on the Paelo diet, but instead it turned into a "cheat" day, that is, I had carbs, far more carbs today than I had over the last 2 days combined. But having said that, my carbs were still under ADA recom... Read more

Question for all curmudgeons

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      4 comments

I have a confession: I want to be a runner. I've toyed with the idea of being a runner since the age of 20. I've tried a couple of times over the last 30 years, but being a smoker really threw a wet blanket over my potential. The only time... Read more

No foolin'

Sunday, February 27, 2011      2 comments

I've been fooling myself the past 2 months. I was thinking that by exercising and just writing down what I ate - but not calculating calories, carbs, & fat - I would continue losing weight. WRONG! My weight loss has ground to a halt, and my bloo... Read more

Yes, I am doing well swimming at a new pool. It's 25 meters instead of 20 yards, it is kept at a reasonably cool temperature and no thrashers! I've been so stoked just to be able to use it! But my goodness I am sore this evening...... Read more

I've been M.I.A. since end of January. Work got crazy busy - a refreshing change. And I am sputtering on the diet/exercise wheel, and my lack of progress shows. What happened to that take charge gal from September? Why do I feel like I'm not doi... Read more

More closely monitoring

Tuesday, January 11, 2011      2 comments

At the suggestion of the nurse in my diabetes class last week, I am now monitoring my blood sugar after I exercise. She said I should see a drop. Unfortunately I am not seeing a significant drop in my blood sugar afterwards. This may mean t... Read more

I'm just chugging along. Some days I am better at what I eat than others, but I am still trying to adhere to my goals. What is affecting my blood sugar levels is still somewhat of a mystery. On days I've been particularly watchful of what I eat... Read more

I have updated my weight loss progress. I realized a while ago that the scale at my local Y is in sore need of calibration. Sometimes I could get what I hoped was an honest weight. Other times I could never get the darn thing to settle. How... Read more

New Year, New meds, renewed resolve

Saturday, January 01, 2011      0 comments

I said I was back in my last blog entry, but that turned out not to be quite true. I guess I was still on holiday. I've finally caught up on adding my food, my fitness, and my blood sugar readings since 12/21/2010! Omg!!!! i can't even beli... Read more

And now back to our regularly scheduled program...

I've been very lax in keeping track of my eating here on SparkPeople. I've not been much better in my paper journal either. But I am back.... Read more

Got H.I.T. today

Tuesday, December 21, 2010      1 comments

Yup, did the High Intensity Training this morning, for a total of 36 minutes instead of 20. Then I did my weight lifting on the nautilis machines. I felt like a million bucks after my shower! And then I got to work where there was a breakfa... Read more

Return of the curmudgeon

I have called my GP's office about my meds. Yet again this morning I've been hit with abdominal cramps & diarrhea, and now I have fatigue in the extreme. I feel like I haven't slept in weeks, even tho I slept like a rock for 7 and a half hours l... Read more
