Had to wear a jacket and scarf because it was very windy today but walked 33 minutes outside. Enjoyed the walk. Gaining weight again so need to make changes in diet again.

4/4/16 Week 6 Day 1 FBS 120 mg/dL. Woke to swollen glands that were cutting my airway in my throat. If I had not had my CPAP machine it would have really been bad. Hope that it clears up soon because I really need to go for my walk. I really don't feel well right now.

Wk 6, Day 1
FBS = 146
I've done a few things right - I've tracked every bite, I've done a min of 40 min of cardio every lay, and a min of 10 min of ST every day for the entire past week. What I've done wrong is, three days in a row eaten all the easter candy (fortunately, only 1 8 oz bag of jelly beans, and 4 cadbury eggs), and several handsfull of cashews; all which raised my glucose up by an average of 10 points each of those days, and showed a weight gain of 3 pounds. I don't like me at all.
Today is over, tomorrow is another day, Friday is Good Friday, and two of my kids and their kids are coming for a 10-day visit; dh has asked me three times where the kids will be sleeping, and 3 times if we have non-allergic food for the gk who is allergic----he nor his family are coming, and twice where that family is going to sleep. I should be happy, but all I do is.....

I lost what I had regained plus 0.2 lbs. for a total of 3.8 lbs. this past week. It was a week of vacation for hubby so I had him home more and we ate out three times during the week but it was also a time for me to practice following my food plan while dining out and it worked.
I have been tracking every 'bite lick and taste' for 42 days consecutively. YEA!

Although I didn't exercise specifically I did move more because we were out and about.

FBS is 112 mg/dl. The lowest it has been since I started the SP Diabetes Meal Plan on January 4th.

Lots to celebrate! emoticon

Admittedly due to my not following the challenge to the letter, this hasn't worked for me.
I think the time has come to start over one more time.
One of these days I'll get it right. emoticon

WEEK 6 DAY 4
I have really upped my exercise minutes and intensity this week so I am hopeful I will finally bust the plateau.
Weigh in day is Monday.
However, my FBS is good (124) and my blood pressure is 137/84 and resting heart rate at 60.

for the water - i've gone over to pink grapefruit flavoured Perrier
- but to drink two quarts of it a day? I'm not sure.

Guess i'll try. But will be running to the b.r. much more often.

Perrier is also an excellent detox for me from the caffeine poisonings i've given myself.

for the walking 20 minutes can do it every day

can do dumbbells exercise routing three times a week - no problem

tracking food and fitness every day - no problem

I'm pretty sure my insulin resistance will really only lessen if my weight Normalizes at the normal range BMI - between 20 and 24.

Week 6 Day 7
BS 7.1

I've tried a few of the recipes - my family loves the Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken. I'm actually enjoying planning meals now.

When I look at Week 6 tasks, I'm still having a challenge with 20 min cardio - will try to break into 2 sessions of 10 min each. Also, drinking 8 cups of water while working means peeing every hour. I do see the benefits for my skin so will persevere.

It's been hot here too but never the risk of fire as you are facing T. Great day everyone!

Sandra

Week 6, Day 1...moving right along...people think I look thinner in the belly but my weight loss doesn't reflect it. LDL Apheresis treatment this week so it is taking me a couple days to get back up to speed. There are so many great recipes I want to try but it is just too hot here right now!

Week 6 Day 6

emoticon Hi Sandra ~ Sorry to hear you're feeling blah today but glad to hear you may have tracked down why, possibly corn.

The fire in our area is 130 acres and 40% contained.

Tried to walk an hour. Did 45 minutes (without stopping). I thought if I can walk 2 hours on golf course, I should be able to walk 1 hour in the gym. Foot pain stopped me. On the golf course, it's walk/stop/walk/stop. I have been walking 20 minutes so I'm happy if I could walk 45 minutes a day for the next week. Plus exhausting thighs in the hot tub (cool tub - more pool like ahhhh).

BS 7.9 - a little high

Feeling blah today. I think I may have a corn allergy - I tried some corn again and up during the night with gastric distress. That may explain why I wasn't in the mood for fitness yesterday. I will have to eliminate completely although I love corn.

Week 6 Day 2

BS 5.5 ( normal 4-7 for Canadians)
Didn't check in yesterday - had overnight guests and routine a little off.
Went way over my calories yesterday - even though I planned on a "cheat day" once weekly, I have rarely gone over my calories in the last 56 days since starting SP.

I did a big brunch with homemade scones and cream. I planned on reducing my calories for the rest of the day.

After our guests left, my husband and I went dishwasher shopping and got a flat tire on the highway. Waiting for the CAA to come and repair and then off to the store made it too late to go home and make dinner as planned and he suggested sushi.

I can't resist tempura shrimp and vegetables and with the sushi, that put me 1000 cal over my limit.

I'm ready to go back to my plan eagerly today. We're celebrating my daughter's birthday at home today and I'm taking her out for fine dining tomorrow. This is Summerliscious time in Toronto where restaurants provide prix fixe menus to entice customers. This will be my third time out in 2 weeks.

Knees hurting a lot today - could it be the gluten? I have done more walking in past few days.

Thanks T for the email. It's nice to know you have my back if I falter.

Week 6 Day 1
Yesterday, I pushed my walking from 20 min to 30 min, later worked my thighs as much as possible in the hot tub, tonight my husband asks me if I would like to walk along while he played golf (previously I shared my goal of being able to do this). He said tonight there will be few or no golfers on the course. I said, yes, I'd like to try. I ate protein & carbs.

Turns out there is a tournament on the front 9 so he played the back nine. Being a coach all his life - he was completely supportive. As it got hard with 3 holes to go - he shared the back 9 is a lot longer than the front 9 and that he's proud of me. I did some bench sitting as he T'ed off and I did make it to the end. I give myself a 70% - it was difficult and I'm so very thrilled to know where I'm at.
emoticon emoticon

I'm happy to get over 3,000 steps a day and strive for 5,000 steps daily. Today 13,645 steps 6 floors 5.6 miles 3,641 calories. 3 minutes later we're home and I "made" myself get in the hot tub, cranked up the heat from 97 to 102, all jets on! It was really hard to get out - my feet didn't want me to stand on them. We'll see what the morning brings.

This morning my right heel is in pain, probably planters fasciitis. It hurts everyday but worse this morning. Today no walking for exercise - I'll do the resistance bands sitting, hot tub exercising and wt lifting sitting or on bench.

Week 6 Day 5
This will be my final day in week 6. I have done a great job (not to brag, I'm just proud!!) of staying on plan & following all of this week's recommendations.

Strength training emoticon 2 times with weights, plus 1 yoga & 1 pilates

20 min cardio emoticon 5 days - some even more than 20 mins

Track all food emoticon have stayed at low end of range most of week. I tried a "total weekly calorie plan". I gave myself 9500 calories for the week. After tonight, I will have about 1100 for tomorrow. I am hoping I can do that!!

10 cups water emoticon This one has been an easy one for me, which is one reason I decided to skip ahead!!

Now to join Trailblazer on week 7!!
