Been dealing with a bad flair up of sciatica and was in bed for 3 weeks, just now getting up and moving, slowly and a bit painfully still, but am moving. I go and see my doctor on Tuesday so will see how I am doing with my counts. I feel okay considering so no complaints.

Okay, I located the instructions on what to do when getting off-track. I have decided that I need to leave this challenge right now, as personal demands have become too great and will remain so for a little while. I have already messed up for 2 weeks, so I will leave and come back when I can devote more time to the challenge. Hopefully, it won't be more than a couple of weeks or so.

Week 3 - Day 3. Oh wow, life has thrown some curves my way lately, and it has completely thrown a wrench into my challenge. I am not sure if I am supposed to keep going, or just quit until this interruption in my life gets lined out in the next few weeks. I certainly will not earn any trophy since I have missed workouts and walks already last week and this one. Do we begin anew at another time, or continue on? How does this work when you mess up on the goals?

Week 3 Wrap Up!

Cardio emoticon 4 days this week

Strength Train emoticon 3 days this week

Eat only 2-3 meals out all week emoticon ended the week with about 4 meals out. But on 2 different occasions, I cooked dinner at home even though I really wanted to go out. That is a big step in my opinion!

Eat a healthy 100-200 cal snack emoticon met on most days of this week

Glad to move on to Week 4. I spent two weeks in Week 2. Now I'm on my way!!

Today is Day 5 (week 2 & 3)

Cardio emoticon but did meet step count goal

Strength Train emoticon

Eat only 2-3 meals out all week emoticon only 1 on Sat, 1 Monday (super healthy though!!) & 1 on Wed. Monday & wed were after doctor appts, so it was hard to work around it. I DID make sure to cook dinner at home both nights, even though it would have been easier to eat out for both main meals.

I'm finally feeling somewhat better after my 3 week long UTI that I think tried to move into my kidneys. Still taking it easy after my hysterectomy on 3/17. I went too fast trying to recover at first, so I am really trying to take it slow & easy this time!!

Have a great day!!

Anita: Thank you for the suggestion about exercising. I even have a Y membership. I just need to get off my duff and go. I think I just need to meet some people or join a class there to feel like I "need" to go. Yes, I've done a few of the Sparks videos, and I love them! Even the sitting ones get my heart rate up, and I always feel better after I do it. I am going to promise myself to do at least one exercise video per day.

You're right ..... Together we WILL do it!

Becky,
Exercising really helped me beat per-diabetes a few years back.
I know you said you have MS. Have you tried any of the Spark People sitting videos?

I hope you find what works for you!! Just keep pushing!! You can do it!!

Thanks for the suggestions about the Glycemic Index and Calorie King. I'll start using that as a guide. I'm trying to eat green ...... beans, asparagus, things like that. Today, my FBS was 128 first thing in the morning, and 151 before dinner tonight. I know it's not perfect, but those numbers are a lot lower than they had been.

When I was first diagnosed as having diabetes Dr gave me a cal/carb counter. When I need a quick something I goggle up what I need. Calorie king is a good site. Good luck and be patient with your weight loss journey.

Hello all. I'm really not sure if I'm on week 3 or not, but I'll say I am. I am trying to learn why my FBS is so high when I eat as I should. So, I'm learning. A friend suggested I get the Diabetic Plate to help with portion control, and I think I will. If anyone has suggestions, please send them my way. I drink water, use no sugar at all, eat cruciferous veggies, but am not losing weight. I'm not exercising, though, so that's probably why. It's tough having Multiple Sclerosis and having a problem with lifting my feet, but I'll keep trying! Question: What reference do you use for calorie/carb content of fresh foods? I cook everything from scratch. Thanks1

I have had some bad days too but no way am I stopping. I view diabetes as a cruel beast that will devour you if you give in. I will keep at it. I hope you find your mojo. I must admit that tracking food is time consuming. But being unhealthy is costly for me. I am tired of folks making money off me because of my health issues. I just add what I ate in my note tracker sometimes. It is much easy for me to track my exercise. Good luck in your journey

Hello Godzdesign95,

Thanks for checking up. I have fallen of the wagon, not in eating or exercising necessarily, but mainly in recording on the site. Got busy and found it too time-consuming. Still very much aware of eating well and have been riding my bike lots, outside.
Hope the program is working well for you!

WEEK 3 - Day 7

Completed my two 20 minute walks plus all of the walking while packing and loading the car for our trip starting tomorrow. Going to visit the son and family. emoticon Nice walking areas there.

Completed a SparkPeople 20-minute Resistance Band emoticon video.

emoticon tracked and in range. Tomorrow will be iffy while on the road. Going to walk at all of our stops and when we get to the motel. I will have to keep track of the food. Will probably be on the low end since we will just be sitting in the emoticon

WEEK 3 - Done! emoticon

WEEK 3 - Day 6

Did a mall emoticon and another walk in the afternoon. Several errands. And... emoticon drum roll, please (Where is a drum emoticon when you need it?!), over 10,000 steps on my SparkTracker! emoticon

Did a core workout I have done before and it was a little easier.

Made a healthy lasagna tonight, but DH did not like it emoticon . He prefers another one I have made. But...we have to keep trying don't we.

Thanks for the suggestion about taking something with me since I was going out to eat with family after the burial service. I cut a protein bar into 4 parts and bagged 2 to take with me. Ate one in the car before the service and then on the way to the restaurant I ate the other one to take the edge off. Made good choices at the restaurant emoticon Made me feel so good.

Anyway, I got one good walk in this morning and two toning videos. Very little time for anything in the afternoon and didn't get home until 9 pm.

emoticon Ready for tomorrow!

Well done!

What works for me sometimes is having small crunchy carrots on hand before I am tempted with overdoing it when eating out. ? Might that help you?
Good luck with it tomorrow.

Completed a nice 40-minute emoticon in the mall at 8:30 a.m. Walked right by the 3 cookie vendors emoticon making and decorating beautiful cookies.

Struggled with one of Coach Nicole's Ab videos emoticon
Stuck with it. emoticon Phew!

Challenge tomorrow! Cemetery services at 3:30 pm with a meal afterwards. Don't know where or I could plan better. Will plan a good breakfast and a snack at lunch.

Week 3 - Last day. FSB 130

This has been a mixed week for me. I have been successful in my meal planning and entering and seen changes in my sugars. I really fell down in the exercise! I did not have resistance bands and tried the alternate exercises but I confess that I was confused by the instructions. I need a video, I think. I did get the bands but never got back on track with doing daily exercise. Will try to do better as I start week four.

Week 3: Day 2. FBS 145

I have not been getting my exercise in. Been celebrating my grandson's first birthday with out of town company. Ate too much yesterday but managed to rein myself in today and make good choices. Had a low blood sugar episode yesterday morning. I'm hoping this means that I'm doing better on my blood sugar and don't need to be taking as much glucose lowering medication. Will be keeping an eye on this.

week 3, day 1. Did a 20 minute TAI CHI, with my son shouting playoff updates in the back ground. NOT as spiritual or uplifting as my usual practice.

Week 3, Day 7

Didn't test FPG this morning. Missed most of the week, letting myself get overly busy and off schedule.

On the positive side, I've definitely upped the exercise and I'm down a couple pounds.

I walked outside twice today. It was a little cold outside, but it sure felt good to be walking.

Just take it one day at a time.
