Fruit, Veggies, Oatmeal, and Blizzard

Sunday, February 24, 2013      4 comments

The blizzard triggered one of my migraines, so I didn't go to the pool as planned, but spent most of the day on the couch, waiting for the meds to kick in, then sleeping. Feeling much better now. On the upside, I ate healthier than ever; I was o... Read more

Anorexia Demons raise their ugly head

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      5 comments

Okay, I might be the only person in history who is truly overweight and worried about anorexia. Fact is, when I was a teen, I was significantly underweight. The doctor told my mom I had to gain at least 20 pounds. I was pretty much anorexic; I s... Read more

I finally had a Monday off again and went to the low-impact Zumba class in the morning. This time, I did even better than a few weeks ago. I was sweating and my heart rate was up, but I was nowhere close to exhausted. I guess all the swimming an... Read more

I had forgotten to turn my alarm off for the weekend, which turned out to be a good thing, because after getting up at 6 a.m., reading the paper, having breakfast, and taking my meds, I didn't feel like going back to sleep, so I headed for the h... Read more

Today is the beginning of Lent. I don't want to be cynical, but it's been Lent around here for a long time. After being diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago (what I call Phase 1): I gave up - all sugary drinks, including juice - candi... Read more

Better Sugars!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      5 comments

Sugar was 155 in the morning; still a bit high, but better than before. I had a bowl of oatmeal, some blueberries and strawberries for breakfast. At lunchtime, my sugar was only 100! I was so happy! Maybe the whole program is working and kicking... Read more

Enter 100 food items into the tracker? No way!

Monday, February 11, 2013      7 comments

Well, they always say that it's healthier to eat many small meals than a couple of big ones, but today I had about 100 bite sized ones! Every year, our world language department celebrates carnival by having the students make food and pos... Read more

Saturday, February 09, 2013      5 comments

Lost pound # 13 today. Not bad, 13 pounds in 3 months. I'm even slightly ahead of my goal line. I just didn't like the way I lost it; I think this stomach bug I've had the past couple of days is the main cause. I could barely eat. Of course, ... Read more

Food, Bug, or Medication?

Friday, February 08, 2013      2 comments

Terribly sick to my stomach today, and a migraine on top of it. After getting really sick, I'm finally feeling better, eating crackers and tea. Don't know if it was something I ate, a stomach bug, or the meds again. I'm really hoping to get bett... Read more

Rapid Fire

Tuesday, February 05, 2013      3 comments

The blood sugar battles are in full swing. I woke up to a sunrise, an alarm clock that hadn't gone off, and sugar levels of 230. I popped my pills, wolfed down a slice of bread, jumped into the shower and then some clothes, watched by my angry b... Read more
