Was I Waiting for This to Happen?

Saturday, July 07, 2012      4 comments

In the link is what I typed about my prediabetic A1C. My fasting glucose and one hour post-meal readings are not bad - but my sugar feeding frenzies pushed my blood sugar WAY up high, and that's how the A1C became elevated. You can buy a... Read more

I have a gazillion topics floating around my brain, and each one could be a blog: Distress when I read of the extremes people go to, to eat healthy, spending exorbitant $$ to do it, when they can't even pay their rent. My hub.'s poi... Read more

Please comment with any information you have to share. I'm new to this and welcome all suggestions and experiences! My thinking had been, unless the diagnosis is full-blown diabetes, there's still a boundary to cross before self-tes... Read more

On a Mini Spark Break

Hooray! ! The central AC should be working again today! There have been other fixes in the past 3 weeks, that didn't last, but I have not given up. My car thermometer went to 119 degrees yesterday, but we have stayed comfy in our master... Read more

Now I Get It -

Wednesday, August 10, 2011      2 comments

I've been very annoyed whenever I saw any claims about reducing belly fat. Even in healthy diet books, there always seems to be a mention somewhere about reducing belly fat first, or something similar to that. I always would think "there is... Read more

Monday, August 08, 2011      2 comments

Our air-conditioning froze up. We stayed home one night and day until we were sure, and scheduled the repairman. He came out, and somehow we all agreed to schedule the fix the next day - I didn't get all the details. Maybe the Hub. just w... Read more

Only Ten Lbs.

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      3 comments

My last blog only told measurements. I want to tell what they have meant. For 2 years, I've hardly been able to walk normally. There were about 2 months when my feet were OK, after a long course of physical therapy. But the same 2... Read more

One Month Body Sensor Measurements

Sunday, July 17, 2011      3 comments

Definitely just FWIW, which I just learned is "for what it's worth," the Body Age measurement is the one I'm watching. I'll be 60 next month, but my body age on the Omron is 66, from 69 last month. In two more months, at this pace, my bo... Read more

With my new body sensor scale, I'm working on seven measurements at once, to get them all into the normal range. I found the scale after getting a free body composition analysis at a commercial diet center. When I learned how much it cost to j... Read more

Edit: this meant a lot to me last year, in upstate New York - the most expensive socks I ever bought, but worth it at the time! Knee socks that fit me, without being too tight around my calves! On this site, they give calf measurements, ... Read more

This Time of Year (food porn)

Thursday, October 21, 2010      4 comments

It's the gummys that get me every year: eyeballs, brains, there's nothing gummy I won't eat. Spiders and octopi were available year round in Texas. In NY, it was gummy bears coated with sprinkles I succumbed to. It's not the taste, but the... Read more

Free Wings for a Year?

Friday, September 24, 2010      2 comments

We have the usual chain restaurants here, and we're getting another one. The opening promotion is "free wings for a year to the first 100 people in the door." We're not wing eaters, but even my husband was interested when he heard "free for a... Read more
