Nature Walk + La Posada = Fun Exercise

Saturday, December 08, 2012      1 comments

I decided to walk around the lake behind the apartments today, and this time, I took the camera. My morning walk also doubled as a birding session. I saw hawks, gulls, sparrows, juncos, robins, and several northern flickers. Read more

Annoyed with the Doctor's Office

Thursday, December 06, 2012      5 comments

So my A1c is 7.7, which means my average blood sugar is too high. I got the result via the health insurance's website almost a week ago, and I knew that was a problem; I've been tracking my diet and blood sugar much more carefully for the last 2... Read more

Cholesterol Down, A1C Up - What Now?

Friday, November 30, 2012      2 comments

I got the results of my blood test. Cholesterol is down, and except for the triglycerides, everything is in range. Even the triglycerides are only a few points above normal; a year and a half ago, they were way up. So I was happy when I got the ... Read more

Flu Shot and Blood Tests

Thursday, November 29, 2012      2 comments

I finally got my flu shot and the blood tests the doctor ordered half a year ago. I'm a master procrastinator, but it's time to get things done. I just received an e-mail that my lipid panel results are in, and I checked the web site; surprising... Read more

Nutrition Tracker: My New Best Friend

Wednesday, November 28, 2012      5 comments

I love the Nutrition Tracker. I have been tracking my food religiously for a week, and it does give me a new perspective on what I eat. For one, I'm cooking more than eating out, to the surprise and joy of my best friend, whom I invite over afte... Read more

Lost just a little bit of weight - unintentionally!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012      2 comments

The only weight I lost today were a few grams - my pedometer! It must have fallen off sometime this afternoon. Now I'm debating whether to get the same kind (clips on the belt) or a different type. I was just getting used to checking my daily st... Read more

Workday = Workout

Monday, November 26, 2012      1 comments

For the first time, I wore my pedometer to work, and I was surprised how many steps I took just teaching. I also spent about 10 minutes outside on the track walking - I would have stayed longer, but it was freezing today, so I walked around the ... Read more

Swimming and Spaghetti Sauce

Sunday, November 25, 2012      2 comments

Well, ever since I started tracking my food a few days ago, my morning sugars have been lower. Nothing major, I'd still like to see them go down more, but from an average of 180 to around 150 is already good. My doctor said 150 and below is good... Read more

Attack of the Killer Medicine!

Saturday, November 24, 2012      3 comments

I've always believed in traditional medicine. When I was 7, I had my first case of pneumonia, followed by 3 more, plus innumerable bouts of bronchitis. Antibiotics saved my life more than once; if the lung problems had not done me in, my appendi... Read more

Early Morning Nature Walk with Bird Sightings

Friday, November 23, 2012      2 comments

Behind my apartment complex is a small reservoir that is being turned into a park. The walking/biking trail around it was finished last year, and even though I have walked parts of it, I've never walked all around. Well, this morning I did. I... Read more

Of Turkeys and Cockatiels

Thursday, November 22, 2012      3 comments

I would have titled this entry "Of Feathered Friends", but the turkey roasting in my oven right now is far from being feathered, and I don't think he would consider me much of a friend today. This is the first time in my life that I am making a ... Read more

Hi, everyone!

Wednesday, November 21, 2012      3 comments

Hi! I'm Suby, Type 2 diabetic for the last 2 1/2 years, and I'm not living with diabetes, more like against it. I don't really think of diabetes as a disease, but my body sabotaging itself in one more way - like natural tooth decay or aging ar... Read more
