Keeping Busy

I find that Keeping Busy helps me to NOT Munch thru the day. I plan my day and write it down on a list. From laundry, to canning, Sparking, meals and menu, when to drink my water, when to exercise, budgeting my money, go for a walk, reading, whatever !!!!
Not much time to think about extra food is the Key.

Many Diabetics Unaware Of Hot Weather Hazards

Although diabetes raises the chances of developing heat illness, many people with the condition don't know how to reduce their risk. Do Not stay in the sun very long, wear hats and layered clothing. Also,watch your meters and supplies. Keep out of the heat and direct sunlight...eg. cars, etc. People with diabetes have an impaired ability to sweat, which predisposes them to heat-related illness, as do uncontrolled high blood sugars.

What I learned on My Trip this Past Weekend

I packed prepackaged snacks like whole grain crackers, fruit, V8, cheese and water for our 9 hour drive.
It was so Great to have something to munch on Guilt Free and without stopping.

OK...This FREEZING Weather Has Gotta Go ! ! !

I'm a Walker and love being outside with the Birds singing and the Warm Sun Shining on my face...Well, All this is Nowhere to be found. SOOOO...I put on my Sweats and Headphones (with the Sound of Birds and Wind, etc), turn on all the lights and walk around my house with a can of canned peas in each of my hands (that's all they are good for in my opinion)... I walk till I sweat and then some. Find out what works for you and WALK, WALK, WALK for your Health. Here's to an early Spring ! OXOX
