OK....really struggling with motivation. I am not giving up. I can't. I try to take one day at a time and today is a good day. I did go to the gym and just had a healthy breakfast and here I am on SP. I go to the doc this month so am ready to get a slap on the wrist for not being as in control of everything like I was last year. I also have a new Dr. so we will see what she says about my health.

Hope you are well.

I will definitely be checking you blog! At least I logged in today and you are the only post I was able to make! Better than being AWOL right?

Having both kids at home again really messes with my routine! Have to share my car, my meals, my time and my sanity!! Trying to get everyone on the bandwagon to pick up after their sloppy selves!! Ugh. Well, I know come fall, I'll be wishing they were both back with me.

Hugs,

30 Day ave.=96

I am so happy you are back with me.
Surgery went well and I am doing fine, I have to go back again Friday. It was mostly done for my lazy eye, we are hoping it will help the eye dr to prescribe better lenses for me. I have 20/100 vision and it is hard to get them right . That was an option to try. I feel certain it will be better.
OK first off you have the option to feed the kids what you eat- OR you should let them feed themselves with your help and you make sure you eat only your meals and Track them.
That is a big decision for you. If they think you are eating "DIET" FOOD they will back off so it is definitely harder in your situation.
If you have a Barnes and NOBLE close by get it there to check it out because you can read it and take it back.
I was surprised I would learn something from the beginning pages of the book. I read it instead of flipping through it like I would usually do with a cook book.
It has helped me to better understand the changing of the tracker numbers as I did lose weight. It never occurred that with less weight you need to eat less. It does make sense.
Because of the Colonoscopy the first week and the third week the Cataract I have been fasting and taking meds etc. so I am going to start NEXT week .OFFICIALLY.
I am actually doing it on my own. Once I saw how to change the nutrition needs I got the hang of it but alas I have not been able to do Strength training or real exercise till I am checked out on Friday and given the go ahead to exercise. DH and I took a short and less intense walk and I felt out of shape.
I am just looking through the recipes now and there are some I will not eat but I am going to TWEAK it to our style of eating. DH and I eat the same meals. I eat my 3 ounce Salmon and he gets more. He is thinner than I am but his heart health is pretty much the spark way so he has been really good about our food choices. He is not interested in Spark just in taste so it works for me.
I am hoping to be able to let go of the hours I spend on the website. I do not need the spark points I am over them. My fitness minutes will be up there and then it will not bother me. I am trying to just LOG IN I am over 1,000 logins and that is my only real goal. I just like having contact with friends Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon .

Pat....how was the surgery? I hope you are recovering well.

I may need to pick up a copy of the Spark Solution as well......having a real struggle with motivation. When my routine is all out of whack I seem to slip. Having both kids at home and trying to prepare meals is yet another struggle. What is it about the book that you find so helpful?

Have a great Monday.

I am reading the Spark Solution. I only ordered it because I knew it could be returned at Barnes and Noble. I am so impressed I am keeping it. I am also reading it page by page. Most people go to the recipes, NOT me I wanted to find out more about Spark. I have changed my calories etc and I joined --but do nothing with=the plateau team.
I hope I do not speak too soon, I am sure I am losing and my fbs today was lower.
I will keep you posted.

OK.......I AM BACK!! Worked about 120 hours over the last 2 weeks and all my energy to do anything but work went right out the door! I ate too much, didn't exercise and went way off my SP program. I am not going to beat myself up much about it because that doesn't do much good. I've learned that.

I hope you have been well. I have missed our daily check-ins and hope we can resume.

FBS 96 and 30 day is 98. Boo Hoo.
I did miss you but I have been busy. I have a colonoscopy on Wednesday am so I did a lot of yard work.
Mt Mothers day surprise was a call from DIL in Las vegas they are coming to Maine. I even have their flights and itinerary That was very nice. Our Las vegas son called and I was feeling down with no cards and no calls so I went shopping for me at Kohls sales. I got some great buys. As soon as I was home DH told me Las vegas called. DH suggested we go out for supper so we did. I usually have a small steak, DH doesn't like steak. I have to avoid red meat till after the colonoscopy. I had a small piece of salmon and it was melt in my mouth delicious. That made me happy. as soon as i got back i called to talk to oldest son in NY and he said he was about to call but he was making dinner. I asked to speak to DIL and she had been sleeping all day. She has a lot of emotional issues. Her Dad did not want her to leave Canada and she did and so he has now disowned her and her three sisters are not allowed to call or write to her. No wonder she is overweight and unhappy. Our son takes care of almost everything I am so proud of him. HUGS now you know all my news. You did warn me you were going to be busy and now you have your daughter home. Where does she go to school? Pat in Maine. Welcome Back !

Hope you got to talk to all three DS's yesterday. And especially hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I certainly did.

Thanks I was wondering what was happening. No problem now i know. GREAT to have daughter home. How long for ? Will she be working.
Try not to stress you know it will raise your BP and BS. Take a few relaxing breaks. Better still a 5 minute quick walk and breathe deeply as you do it.

Will you be having vacation time off with your DD ??? Maine is lovely right now.

30 Day still 111

Pat I do know about the Dawn thingy! I am assuming that as we age, our glucose readings become different. It will only be two years for me come this Nov. I did so well and believe i am still doing well but my numbers are higher than they are supposed to be.

I am not in a happy marriage (OK telling you maybe more than I should). It's been 22 years but not happy for a long time. What advice can you give me? I'm sure it hasn't been all balloons and roses for any of us....haha.

Sorry to dump this on you. I just have to look out for my health and well-being from here on out. My DH and I are in our 50's and our health will become a significant factor before too long. He smokes like a chimney and I know that it will eventually catch up with him. Don't know if I want to deal with that.

Again, thanks for listening.

30 Day ave.=97

BONNIE have you ever hear of the Dawn phenomenon. I have it. If I do not eat a late night snack with some protein and a little fat, I will be over 100 for me.

When I was diagnosed I would take mt BS at 3 am and it was always high. Now i eat the protein my liver does not dump glucose because protein is digested slower than carbs. I try to stay away from Simple carbs but I use oat bran-lots of fiber slow digesting and 2% cottage cheese does it for me. Look up Dawn phenomenon.
It might help or maybe you have tried it. I know it works for me .
I have snack 2 always in my tracker so I know I have it covered it is so important to my needs. I do not take metformin any more. Let me know I am no expert but it works for me. HUGS Pat in Maine. I do my snack in the microwave.

30 Day = 111

Cornell is a school steeped in tradition. This event has been going on since 1903. There is a huge culture of drinking to excess on this campus and since the country as a whole is cracking down on binge drinking, the Greek system here on campus has suffered fines, suspension and even shutting down a couple of frats. In 2010, a kid died during a hazing incident-it was just awful. The administration has been trying to really control this behavior but it's an Ivy League school with lots of money and endowments. Most of the kids I work with are great and are not spoiled, entitled brats. They all like to party though! I am also thankful that my girls are not into that kind of fun. I feel very blessed.

Where does your son live in CA? I grew up in the suburbs of LA.

I don't eat a snack before bed. I usually have my dinner between 7-8 and try to stay away from heavy carbs at dinner. I just don't know what's going on.

Well, the kids are hooping it up outside already at 9:30 am. I'm going to go outside and spectate. Not much work getting done today.

Happy Friday and have a good one!

FBS 7.43 am 95 30 Day average = 97- back where I was!!!

I am totally blown away that an academic institution would allow that to go on.

Thank goodness here we are trying to curb college binging. What is it with Cornell.

Too bad! I hope you have college security there, that is when trouble starts.

I am so glad our son did not go to Rensselaer. he wanted too because the guidance counsellor said it was his best choice and a shoo in.He wanted History and engineering physics and he was told they could do that there.
I was sewing for a woman and she was a dean of admissions or something and she told us the campus was in a bad neighbourhood, he found a great position in Orono Maine. Their engineering physics was and still is a good place to be. He did his masters in STORRS, and decided he had enough of not having enough money. Now he lives in CA and I am hoping he will come home to Maine for our anniversary. HUGS Pat

What do you eat as a bed time snack. I was using metformin and after I found my right foods I do better but as you know not always but I am off metformin for three years now. Soon it will be A1c time .In the meantime my May challenges are colonoscopy and cataract surgery to try to help my lazy eye. Pat emoticon

Don't know what is going on with my sugars again. I'm going to put myself back on a half dose of metformin 2x day. I've been exercising like mad, watching what I eat and still having those high morning #'s.

emoticon emoticon on those 15,000 steps. That's a lot of emoticon . Great job.

It's finally beautiful weather here. Tomorrow is an annual tradition at Cornell to celebrate the end of classes. It's called Slope Day. The kids start drinking at breakfast and continue all day and night. Us grown-ups have learned that it's best to not be around in the afternoon so we close the office and go out to lunch far away from campus. Too many drunks to deal with!!

Have a marvelous day and enjoy the outdoors.

30 day ave 96

I went to University lecture an d then came home to an hour long call with DIL and grand daughter who we are hoping to see in Maine for the first time.
Then home to more yard work Pruning trees and digging new beds.

Your job sounds great and the program is definitely needed. There is a program here in high school that does similar work for students to earn money by painting houses but they have to keep their work ethics right and they do have to keep books and have insurance. It works but these days many homes have vinyl siding so they were trying to find another program for the high school kids.
I started to spark at 7pm it has been along day. emoticon emoticon PS I am happy you enjoyed the time with your DAD emoticon

30 Day still 110

Brunch was very nice and it was nice spending time with my dad. I work for an student-run organization which is the oldest in the country. It was founded in 1894. We give Cornell undergrads the experience of managing and running real businesses which gives them real-world experience to take with them after they graduate. I am one of 4 permanent staff that mentors the students. I LOVE my job. I've been here 12 years. It is such a pleasure to work with young, motivated and smart people. It keeps me young. Here is the link if you are ever interested www.studentagencies.com.

I know what you mean about short summers. It's the same here. While DH and i were driving back from the softball tournament on Saturday I noticed some houses that had already planted their flower gardens.......they must be new to the area because those of us who have lived in this climate no better than to ever plant anything before Memorial Day!! I do container gardening. I won't start until memorial weekend. I really don't have much of a green thumb?

Did you work? I take it you are retired now.

Have a great day and it's a pleasure to be your spark friend. I am forever grateful for this site.

30 day average is 97

We should both have consistency awards Bonnie.
I hope you had a good time at your brunch. Hoping Dad enjoyed it too. Are you an educator, do you have a long time off work during the summer. Our summers up here are so short which is why i have to take advantage of it to get the yard ready. If it is neglected it will take a miracle to make it look halfway decent. It is nothing but a back yard bunch of grass but I have been trying to pretty it up. It is mostly clay which is hard to work with. Grass does not even like clay so we have bare patches. We had Junipers ever since the house was built and they were huge. I decided they made the yard smaller so I called for an estimate. Few people want to mess with junipers so the estimate was much too steep to accept so i am doing it myself. My DH had a hip replacement in February so he is still getting up to speed.
Today will be getting some stuff ready for the dump and then i will be back outdoors to work.
I hope your week goes very well. Pat in Maine, emoticon emoticon BONNIE, I appreciate your friendship. Pat

Going to a fancy brunch to day with work. We are celebrating the end of the school year. I'm taking my dad as my date! I will try to use my will power and choose my foods carefully. Spent the entire day yesterday at a softball tourny about an hour away. It was just a lovely day. I got some color on my face and the girls had a great time.

I wasn't able to post yesterday so am catching up today. Enjoy the sun Pat. emoticon

HUGS Will talk later . I have heard of KINDLE but never looked one up I might look uit up. I use pedometer but I might try Fit bit type of thing instead. I would love to record heart rate and sleep.

30 day = 110 (also consistent but not where I want it)

Your 30 day is very consistent. emoticon . Your A1C should indicate that as well.

We also don't use anything on our grass. We have a big yard and a pond. We used to spend a lot of time "managing' our pond and were able to swim in it when the kids were younger. That was just great. Lots of birthday parties and friends who had never swam in a pond before. Now, it has too much duck weed in it and it has run it's natural cycle. The only way we can clean it up is to drain it. Don't think that's going to happen any time soon. It's still lovely to look at and boasts tons of wild life. I take a lawn chair out behind the pond in the summer and read my kindle. Very peaceful.

Have a big day at work today. Didn't pack my lunch so need to really make a good choice for what I will eat. emoticon .

Hope you get to get outside and enjoy the sun again today. Nice that you have walking buddies for your trail walks. Hoping to get a walk in tomorrow.

Have a great day. emoticon

30 day = 97-Most consistent don't you think?

Thanks for the compliment I appreciate it. I like to give people compliments because I like nice people.

I have had a couple of hours in the yard and at 2.30 I am going for a 4 miler on the rail trail again. We are having some nice sunshine My daffodils are happy for the warmth.
DH used to do a lot with me in the yard but we are afraid of him using the spade etc so I do that myself. So far he has been able to mow the grass. I never say lawn since I am allergic to chemicals especially fertilizer. I am going to try another approach using lime our soil is very acidic. It will be a while to do but it is actually overdue. It has just been too wet.
I have said this before I am enjoying looking at the thirty day average it has not moved up or down. I should be needing an A1c soon I will see if it is as consistent as the average. That will give me a measure of the numbers all month long I will be doing this if ever we get fed up of each other. It was a stroke of genius on your part I am so glad you followed through with it. Have you taken a look at that Bollywood thing it really is a workout. The computer makes them all look like TWIGGY(I am dating myself there) They look really tall and really thin(EMACIATED in FACT ) Hugs it is 2:00 pm I must say bye for now. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good to hear your feedback about SparkCoach. I suspect it will be the same for me as I can already tell the "program" piece is familiar to a lot of the articles and emails from SP. Well, I'll do my 3 months and then see.

I'm so sorry you can't make it to your granddaughter's birthday. I can tell how much it pains you. I really hope that you can make a family get-together happen over the summer. Can't they all come to you?

Also hope DH is feeling better today.

Went to the gym even though I didn't feel like it. Always glad I did!

Had a rare heart-to-heart with DD last night. Mostly talking about all the kids who do drugs at school. Pat, it is rampant and in this day and age it's prescription drug abuse. All the kids are doing Xanex!! I will be so happy when her high school days are OVER and she can move on to building a future for herself. I know drugs and alcohol are a presence in every school in America but you just want your kid to be safe and survive. Anyways it was nice to have her open up to me. Plus, i got my nails painted in the mix!

Busy day at work for me and since I came in late, I gotta get to it.

Have a wonderful day Pat. emoticon

30 Day average -still 97

I asked about that I was told to adjust the numbers so I di and now I have less calories. NOW GET THIS. Always by Wednesday they tell me I do not eat enough for weight loss. After changing my goals I get the same message on TUESDAY.
I did the first months with Spark coach but it never did anything for me. I did ask a question that was poorly answered so i wrote again and was told no questions now for 6 more days. By the time six more days is over what is the point. I found it had nothing useful it was just repeating itself. I would have loved it at the beginning I had to figure out the site with the help of Spark friend.
I quit but I want to read the book and since I got 2 DVD's it was worth it I got it at Barnes and Noble so it evened out. I am doing it---JUST FOR THE FAST Spark Points).
I did walk but it was bitterly cold DH was not feeling great so we are back home and he is in Bed (he rarely does that he will nap in the chair but going to bed is serious he had an overnight headache. I am promising I will cut back on Spark and we will go to bed at 10 p m. I wanted to go to see grand kids he did not it is such a long drive-all day and no flights even so I will miss my GD's birthday Wednesday and I doubt her grandmother or card will get there on the day.
We all must have priorities and my DH is top of the list along with myself these days.

30 Day = 110

Much better reading the last 2 days. Happy about that.

I took advantage of the "email a SparkCoach" perk that I get for my $15 I paid for 3 months. You can only email one time per week. I could not figure out how to change my calorie range so that it was accurate for my weight and height. It turns out that the calorie range is automatically entered for you when you change your goals. I had never changed my goals. They are quite different now than they were when I first set my account up. So when I changed my goals, my calorie range came way down. It's going to be even harder for me now to stay within the range. No wonder I haven't been losing. Well, you learn something new every day.

Glad you are not sore from your yard work. I always dread the day after as well!

It's Monday so let's see what the week has to bring. I did make a lentil and tomato stew type thing yesterday that I will have for my lunches for the next several days.

Have a wonderful day Pat. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well done with your 100. Good idea to plan ahead. I never plan meal by meal but I know what we have in the house most of the time.
I am able to leave out anything not good for us.Nothing processed unless it is done by ME!!

I am glad we have very few tornadoes the trees usually tame them - not always but most of the time. I missed our son's terribly but after a while DH and I have settled in to our couples days. I am looking forward to seeing them all together. I am doubting it will happen but it is my dream. I will invite and they are busy grown ups now and allowed to decline. HUGs again Pat.
I know wishful thinking but that is what I am hoping to have. Sunshine and flowers HUGS BONNIE from Pat in Maine. I hope you are ready for a GREAT DAY!!! (((HUGS)))

30 Day up to 112

I don't think I have ever felt so discouraged since my diagnosis. I just have to get control of my sugars. I don't like it one bit. It's my own fault.

Glad you found your meter. It must have been very frustrating. Like trying to find my keys when I KNOW they are here somewhere! I keep my testing supplies in a Yankees tin box! My kids got it at a Yankees game and it is just perfect for my supplies. I keep it in the living room which is where I test and have my morning coffee and read the paper.

We were at the game last night when an enormous cold front swept through. My cell phone was going crazy with texts from the National Weather Service about severe storms and even a tornado threat. Thank goodness none of that materialized but the cold, wind and rain came with a vengeance. I made a mad dash to the car and the game was called just a few minutes later. We all came home soaking wet. It's very cold and windy today too.

I had the house to myself today as DH works. I like the peace and quiet. Maybe it will help me adjust to the empty nest in the fall. Dropped DD off at a tailor this morning where she was meeting her prom date to pick out a tuxedo to rent. She's off to LAX game and then out with friends.

Have a great rest of your day Pat. emoticon

30 day still 97

I looked for 30 minutes I misplaced my Glucometer. I was getting really stressed and agitated. DH got up and still we could not find it. I had been downstairs and posted late. I put in on DH desk chair where I have placed it before. Alas a pair of pants I had sen was put on top and it was when I decided to stitch the pants There was the glucometer.
NEW PLAN Write it down and put it back in its case in the kitchen drawer.
We have rain but we need it to turn our dry grass green again. Enjoy your day emoticon Pat

I did not eat or drink and I fell asleep.by 7.51am 105. it sure is random isn't it?

I spent the morning getting my photos in to my blog it took mt 2 and a half hours.
Tonight I was rushing and I had thought I had done all of these so I just did the top lines. After my comment I read yours about the sugars being all over the place. You sure have that right, i came back to tell you I am in the same boat here.
Our weekend is already cold after a nice morning now we have cold high winds. HUGS and thanks Pat in Mane. ENJOY the game and the weekend !!.

30 Day = 111

I'm all over the place with my morning numbers.

Very scary what is going on in Boston today. I hope they catch the other suspect and that no more people get injured or killed. It is kind of surreal what is going on....lockdown of an entire major US city. I don't believe that has happened at least in my memory.

Another home game today and I WILL make this one if it doesn't get rained out again. Supposed to get cold over the weekend.

However today I saw the first forsythias out and it is the most lovely sight. You know spring is here when you see the forsythias. emoticon

Happy Friday Pat emoticon

All that exercise with no eating out no poor food choices. I was shocked this morning. DH and I went to a 99 restaurant I asked for small salmon. I had asparagus a broiled tomato and Broccoli no SAUCE, butter or salt. 107 was a shock. Where did it go wrong.

New Battery in my meter
30 day = 111

Wow you did drain your battery yesterday. Great job. What movie did you watch?

I'm betting that my high numbers early in the week were due to my meter's battery dying. Especially since I couldn't pinpoint any dietary reasons why my morning numbers were way higher than normal. Today's reading of 90 makes me feel much better.

I will be attending an Entrepreneur's Event this afternoon. It's a demonstration of several new businesses that have been launched by Cornell undergrads. Looking forward to that. Cocktail reception to follow. I will have to miss my daughter's first home softball game which I'm not real happy about.

Enjoy your day Pat. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I think I wore my battery out today and I do mean my battery.
I walked the rail trail and we went to the bakery and it was almost too late to take DH home. I had to of course. Then i drove out to meet the others and we went looking for Hepatica and liverwort. It was in the woods and of course there might be ticks some people were wary about walking in the woods. I have over 12,000 steps right now and I am weary. I am going to sit and watch a movie with DH. Put my poor feet up and DH suggested dinner out and I am ready for it. HUGS Pat in Maine.
Thanks we are pretty much on the same page, that's a nice place to be. HUGS Pat in Maine

My battery in my meter died so I couldn't test this morning :(

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. You were so right to leave the room when all the news coverage was playing the same horrific scenes over and over. This is the world we live in now (as my mother said to me last night). Everything imaginable is captured on someone's phone or camera and we have become a society hooked on visuals, even when they are very disturbing.

I do feel better today and I also limited my TV viewing of the events. I know that on 9/11 and the days that followed I couldn't stop watching and I mean it was a serious problem for me.

My DH is also the type to never dwell on these types of incidents. I lose sleep and lose sight of what is important to me. Taking care of myself tends to fall way down on the priority list. I am learning though to do a better job of making sure I take care of myself.

I went to the gym before work and did a vigorous 1 hour workout. The weather is improving so we will all be able to get outside more and get some sunshine which is good for our souls.

Hope you had a great walk emoticon

30 day average is 97.

I understand how what we encounter in our past can really come back to us and usually it feels even more traumatic. I know it does for me. I have to think about it and analyse it people say oh just let go. I cannot do that, my DH can do that.

He can put it out of his mind and when it is mentioned again it seems to be easier for him to talk about.
I am the reverse, there has been a lot of hard times in my past and I just do not want to bring them up. Never the less I do find myself going over and over with it in my mind.
Yesterday brought a lot back to my mind so it has been a strange day.

DH had the TV on yesterday I watched and left as soon as I knew what had happened I did not want to see it.I just wanted the facts, I was very sorry and grieving for their losses but watching it over again tonight I just left the room. I cannot make it right or help in any way. I cannot reverse the clock I sure wish we could do that and it makes me feel so HELPLESS.

I hope you can process it better than me. Take care, HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

30 day = 111

Think I reacted too much to the bombings in Boston. I have very bad memories of 9/11 as my mom was at work 10 blocks from the WTC. Very traumatic day for her trying to get home. Had to walk about 4 miles to the river and she is very overweight. Got on a ferry to NJ with many of the wounded. Yesterday brought back some unpleasant memories and a sense of such anger I can't even express it. Everyone said it was only a matter of time and damned if whoever did this did it at just such an event that we have feared. The whole country on edge again. Need to work through my feelings on this one.

Thanks for listening Pat. Hope your day is great.
