Good morning all! FBS 106 ! I also have been lax with my exercise but since getting back into it I am actually looking forward to it! Setting a goal of 10,000 steps or more a day on my fitbit has really helped.Last night at 11:30 I only had 9282 so I got on the stationary bike and rode like a fiend and got 11,289 by midnight!!!

Food plan is going great! Because I'm trying to balance everything within my daily limits I'm eating more veggies and non-fat yogurt. I'm actually at lower end of calorie range most days and I'm never hungry. This has never happened before. Need to make more of an effort with exercise, because that's lagging.

Doing fine with the diet plan! I was even okay with a lunch out with DH. I "allowed" myself a piece of chicken Parmesan hold the marinara and just a sprinkling of mozzarella. 😊 Choosing mostly vegetables, I managed to stay within my budgeted calorie count for the day.

One meal at a time!!

I am doing well with diet. I am having more trouble with exercise. I did turn on some music to dance for 10 minutes which turned into 15 so that was good. I want to do that three to five times a week. I just received the Sparkpeople workout dvds. I am putting one in now. I hope it helps with my exercise mindset.

I am doing well adhering to a proper diet but just can't maintain motivation for exercise. Not sure what to do. Berating myself or telling myself that baby steps are okay is not working.

Last week disastrous. No exercise. Diet about 50%. Added 1 kg. Going to do better in week 2.
Great breakfast today. Oatmeal w/ banana, walnuts and cranberries and toast and coffee.
Now for some exercise.

Split up the 4 miles into 2 this morning & 2 this evening. I am going to try to do that everyday from now on! Have I mentioned that I HATE the ST video?!? Well, I do. That video is not made for obese diabetics! I bet the majority of the people that quit this challenge within the first 2 weeks do so because of that video.

Week 2: Day 5. FSB 129

Did my strength training today. Over ate which is reflected in my 210 blood sugar after dinner. I need to keep reminding myself that I really have to watch my carbs. Was depressed this week to gain weight despite my best efforts and my depression has been reflected in my eatng for the last two days. I shopped today for ingredients for three days of the diabetic meal plan and made some apple sauce muffins for breakfast tomorrow. Will post how they end up tasting!

Forgot to take my meds until mid-afternoon. I had a big dinner so hopefully blood sugar won't be terrible. Did my strength training today and have been able to push myself farther each time. I didn't exercise yesterday so need to be sure to hit each day the rest of this week.

The flu hasn't laid claim to me completely! I still feel pretty good, except for my head and throat, so I was actually looking forward to busting out a big day today. I went for the full 5 miles, and it was actually pretty tough! A lot tougher than it usually is anyways. I am praying for the strength to get another big day in tomorrow before I see my doctor.

Week 2: Day 1

FBS: 94

Did 2 miles today.
Drank 64 ounces of water.
Tracked all of my food.

I made up for yesterday today, so I actually walked 7 miles today...not just 2. This would have been a rest day for me, so instead I will just walk 6/7 days this week. I want to get 5 miles at least 5 days this week, but the flu may have other plans for me! I am the last in my house to catch it, so that makes me proud! I am hoping to be able to continue my workouts regardless, so I am planning on breaking them up into smaller walks 2x's per day. I want to do the ST video on M, W, F this week so that I am not trying to squeeze them in on my busiest days. Other than that, week 2 seems totally do-able!

Paid closer attention today to getting at least minimum carbs for meals and snacks after low sugar episode yesterday. Seemed to do fine. Test after lunch of 108. Did the Bollywood cardio workout tonight but it was hard on my knees so don't think I'll do that one again. Glad to make it to week two!

PREPAREMYTEMPLE - Your BS was definitely up today. Look back on your Nutrition Tracker at what you ate yesterday that might possibly have made your BS rise. This can happen from time to time anyway, but usually you will be able to look back and notice something that you ate that was the cause for it. It could even be caused by extra stress, lack of sleep, a medication you might have started, or even just not feeling well that day. Keep pushing and keep tracking your food intake on your Nutrition Tracker. emoticon

Week 2, Day 1

FPG = 123

This is one of the highest fasting blood sugar levels I've recorded since I started testing. I'm not making too much of it as I had a really off day, eating late, and eating foods that I suspect keep my blood sugar up longer.

We'll see what happens over the next few days.

Still here.....scale is not really moving, but that is normal. I am focusing on maintaining control of portion sizes and keeping things healthy. That is a struggle since my husband does not really believe in the same type of 'healthy' as I do. (lots of red meat and potatoes.....)

Just take it one day at a time.

I stayed within my calories today. We had snacks of either bagels or fresh-popped popcorn. I should have chosen neither, but I chose the popcorn. Fruit was not an option.

Good first week in this challenge. My scale moved more than 5 pounds this week. This is quite a bit. I cut back on drinking Diet Coke, so my sodium was reduced a bit. I have been watching the nutritional feedback, and I keep coming up short in potassium as well as some other nutrients. I am continuing to monitor these areas as well as take a multivitamin daily. Portion control went well.

LE3INMEMPHIS - - You can't always depend on that darn scale!!! There will be times like the scale isn't budging but it's those times that you look back and see where you could have made some better choices as well as how much better you're feeling, how much improvement there has been in your lab results, how much looser your clothes are feeling etc. Don't be surprised if it happens again, but just keep on measuring yourself etc. It happens to ALL of us!! DO NOT GIVE UP!! Your inches might get a little higher but don't forget that you are building muscle instead of fat. Your body is going through some major changes on these challenges and it does take time for things to catch up. Be sure you keep up with your non-calorie liquids while you're on your trip out of town and even take a walk if even for a few minutes during the day. Don't forget your snacks!!! It will help hold you over between your meals, keep your BS's from spiking and/or crashing and will help to keep your metabolism going at a faster rate.

Don't be afraid or embarrassed when you're feeling down and out to let us know when you do your daily posting!! You are never alone on this journey as we are all going through out own journey with you. We all have those down days. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU because YOU ARE WORTH!! emoticon and together emoticon .

Felt like I had stagnated. 2 wks on SP, 1 wk on Diabetic Challenge and no wt loss. Then this morning I finally had a drop. When I looked back at the report. I had a slow declining slope to the line. YEP! I had been losing wt, but so slowly I didn't notice. My inches were higher... I was thinking measurement error. I stayed because 1) I felt better 2) I had more energy 3) I felt firmer. I don't know how much longer I would have stuck it out...at least a wk anyway. Next challenge will be going out of town and staying on program. Particularly when I have 3 nights to work then travel and work days. If not.... I'll get back on when I get back.

MARYJANE - Are you eating your 3 meals a day AND 1-3 snacks a day? The snacks are very important. I suffer from hypoglycemia with no warnings so I know my snacks are very important. Had you been exercising at the time? If so, be sure you have a snack (protein and carbs) before you exercise as well as after the exercise. Also, make sure you are drinking enough water throughout the day. Be sure to keep track of when your lows are happening, what you were doing at the time etc. so you can let your physician know.

The cardio is no problem-I'm on day 24 of walking every day...but I just can't get motivated to do the strength workouts. I feel a little ridiculous and impatient with myself. I'll give it a go again week 2 and see how it goes.

GENNI & LILSUZI - - Give it time and I'm sure it will come down. Just be sure you are eating your allotted about of calories (at least the minimum - however, do best when I eat the maximum) - 3 meals a day as well as our 1-3 snacks. Drink plenty of non-calorie fluids to help flush out the toxins from your system.

Week 2, Day 7
FPG = 103

Not bad, especially because I went to sleep earlier than planned (translation: crashed), then woke up and had a (healthy) snack late at night.

Still, my blood sugar was in a close to target this morning.

Overall I did very well with nutrition all week, but I need to step up my exercise. I've slacked off significantly.

SPIRITSEEKER2 - Be sure to do some stretching before and after you work out like that. This will help to prevent injury to your body. Drink lots of fluid also.
