Charging into week 3 with my new tricycle.
On my way in a few minutes to see my endocrinologist. (Not on my tricycle)
I am hoping and semi-expecting very good results of FBS. (I am hungry)
Also going to do an A1c.
See you all later.

Today is the first day of week 3 for me. For some reason I decided to make Tuesday the first day of my week.

I am pretty sure this is week 4 for me. Oh well, life has given me an extra week! My daily blood sugar is definitely down. Weight is down and exercise level is up. Need to work on the eating. I seem to be at a plateau though. Still want tp lose 58 more pounds. Good luck, all.

Day 1 week three:
Completed the challenge goals of week 2 but my goal of 3 km per week on treadmill fell just short. (2.75) .
This week increasing goal to 5 km and will try to do at higher intensity.
I need to do a better job of food tracking but oh! those NG snacks. I need some discipline.

I have completed week three. I now have surgical shoe on my left foot, as it has been so painful for me for weeks. Found out doc says I am getting old... Thanks doc never thought that. LOL. But the shoe is so I can still do my exercises and still age gracefully. Im ok with that. Tomarrow I think Im going to do the yoga video. That is a great video to do to get all the kinks out the bones. lol

Just keep focused and your dreams will turn into realities. With God as your Master Trainer, all things are possible!

week 3 day 4 I am moving right along with this challenge. My weight goes up and down by 1-2 pounds through out the week as I try to figure out my food. I have been doing my own think for so long that I forgot what a serving of bread looks like! I had milk for the first time in years! Here is to a healthy life style!

Up until last night really adhered to diet and my FBS showed it. 124 last morning.
However, last night I took the whole family - and I do mean whole, 10 persons - out to dinner at a Thai buffet restaurant. I didn't overeat but food choices definitely not on diet. So this AM FBS back up to 137.
Will get back on track today and have so far - just had lunch.
Still no exercise because sciatic pain still heavy.
Monday I get spinal cortisone injections and with any success I hope to be able to exercise pain free.

week 3 day 4:
Been very good about diet and blood sugar down to nearly acceptable level (133).
No exercise so far this week. I think if I can add exercise to my regimen that will have FBS really under control.

Got here to week 3 day 1. Did the minimum amount of exercise and food tracking for week 2, Yesterday I completely fell off of the food wagon and my FBS this AM reflected it.
Have to re-commit today.

WK 3 Day 6
Awesome Sandra!
I'm planning in 20 peanut M&M's today. I realize the body reacts the same no matter if the sugar source is a piece of bread or candy - 30 carbs is 30 carbs. So I'm going to incorporate a smart choice ~ peanut m&m's have protein along with the sugar (protein help prevent a pike in blood glucose going up). I'm also having a mozzarella stick with it. for even more protein. Have a great day!

I've had my candy - ate them slowly and savored - yum! I love SparkPeople - keeping track is easy, yes it takes time but worth it. Grouping has helped - I tracked a hamburger bun, hamburger patty, mayo, lettuce and grouped them into a hamburger so now I can just click hamburger - woo hoo! So nice to be able to pre-plan by tracking a day in advance then just follow the plan or make the changes. I haven't done that yet but need to for the busy "fair" time coming up.

Passed up root beer floats and of course vanilla ice cream, had a big glass of ice water then went to my cupcake wrapper wall and punched each pound I have lost so far - took a moment to enjoy the victory!!!

Great dinner last night - went over my daily cal but feel great. Wonderful restaurant with great work friends. The menu was set with three courses plus appetizers - I don't feel out of control and I'm back on plan this morning. I did review the restaurant menu in advance but couldn't resist the bread.

I'm feeling I could live this way all my life.

Yes, funnel cakes and much food like it ~ as a special treat... I'm planning on a wonderful deep fried halibut fish and chips lunch once (tons of tartar sauce too). I gotta stay away from the high sugar stuff because it will make me feel terrible and I'll be at work. Love your keystone habits, I'll have to do some thinking!

Hi T,

What a hectic time ahead for you! It sounds like the Canadian National Exhibition here in Toronto. I'm not sure I could resist 2 weeks of funnel cakes and midway food plus all the hard work in the sun. Kudos to you and your family.

I'm trying to find the keystone habits that will energize me to keep going (I read a great book about keystone habits for change). A keystone habit may be something small but pivotal that acts as a catalyst for change. For me, logging in each morning to SP is that. When I log in to enter my BS, I start to track/plan my food for the day. Another keystone habit is planning dinner meals one week in advance - it just reduces some stress for me especially when working FT. That was my daughter's idea - so with dinner taken care, planning my other meals seem easier. At least for now; darn, you've started me thinking about funnel cakes!
I wonder how many calories with the strawberries and whipped cream.

Take care,

Week 3 Day 5
I've been helping my friend finish up moving - she's leaving today. Looking ahead in my calendar.... the next 3 weeks should be easy to stay on track. The last week in July and the first 2 1/2 weeks in August are going to be a CHALLENGE! I'll be working at a big fair.

I'll be planning all the food needed for myself, my husband, my son (adult), and his girlfriend (she will stay at our house during the fair). All of us work at the fair - all in different positions - and some various shifts. My husband is a supervisor of about 50 young adults (ages 16-21). He sends them in groups to do various tasks as needed. My son's girlfriend is one of them. They both work 6am to 3pm. My son is graveyard shift 6pm to 3am, he drives a vehicle around with another worker and empty's all the trash cans throughout the fairgrounds.

My supervisors haven't decided what shift I'll be working or what I'll be doing - last year I was data entry so I did nothing but type 12 hour days for about a month (with a few days off here and there). The year before that I was a banker, making deposits and ordering change for the ticket sellers and also did their job when breaks were needed. This year they have gone computerized, they know that I am extremely knowledgeable & experienced so they're having start the last week in July to train people (fair is in Aug) then we'll see what job they want me to do during the fair and what time schedule.

Anyway, long days, traveling back & forth (about 40 min from my house). Exercise won't be a needed (walking from parking lot and on the job). No shopping during that time - I'll get all the food & bottled drinks here prior - that way it will reduce stress by not having to grocery shop.

So with good planning of my food, then I won't have to think about it - just follow the plan!

I don't know how you do it Sandra - working would be more challenging! After working all day, I would not want to keep on my feet to go grocery shopping or any household chores!

Week 3 Day 5
BS 5.9
36 day streak of tracking my food - staying within calories - 6/7 days is my goal which I'm meeting.
I seem to be getting into a rhythm - I'm making the time to plan my meals
Going out to dinner tonight for a work event - I've studied the menu and planned my meal and already tracked it. Have thought about my triggers - oh that lovely bread basket! So, if I can't resist, I still have a little room for bread.
I try to eat meals as recommended - trying to include all carbs, fats and protein. That keeps me full.

Great day everyone! emoticon

week 3 day 4
BS 7.1. Reduced Lantus last night
Have tried a few SP recipes - my favourite snacks are almonds and yogurt.
My favourite breakfast is the SP recipe for cottage cheese oatmeal pancakes - I have this with real maple syrup each morning.
So, while this part okay, activity still needs to be increased. Have enjoyed reading all the resources.

Week 3 Day 3
BS 3.9 - a little low - will adjust Lantus tonight - good sign as my insulin requirements are decreasing.
Feeling good and lighter today - that "spring in my steps" mode despite two days of rain in my area.
Tracking my food everyday but only managing 15-30 minutes of fitness daily.
Good luck to all.

Focus on increasing activity. Nice and cool n Toronto - sorry to hear of your hot weather T. That must be unusual for your area?

I'm glad to be staying home today, it's so much easier! I'll have time to read through all of week 3's diabetic information too.

I had a gout attack over the weekend and could barely stand. Almost better now. Getting foot surgery next week. I guess I did not pick the right time for this challenge. Did not know at the time that I would have surgery. May I start again later on?
I did lose another 1/2 lb. due to good eating.

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!!

Week 3 Check in

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.

Eat a healthy 100-200 cal snack each day emoticon

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!!
