Keeping Glucometer, Meds And Pedometer Together Really Helps Tracking.
Members Were Sparked
I keep my medication and test kit and my pedometer together. At night all three go on my kitchen Island so i see them and test my FBS, then I take my meds for the day and then I clip on my pedometer. If I am not yet dressed I clip it to my slipper, my feet are always covered. When I am dressed I transfer it to my waist band. My day has then begun Pat in Maine.

I eat the same breakfast every day to lower my cholestrol---oatmeal with usually some fruit. I used to put it in the Nutrition tracker every day til I realized I could SAVE SOME TIME & ENERGY by copying it a week ahead on the COPY CUSTOM FOODS above the meal listed [on the Nutrition Tracker] . That little amt. of time INVESTED has SAVED ME TIME and TIME AGAIN [pun intended!]. If I am making a big batch of food,say a SP recipe for chili, I can copy THAT CUSTOM FOOD for Dinner a week ahead ...
...or however many days!These ways of tracking food help KEEP me on the Nutrition Tracker and THAT helps keeps my goal weight maintained!
Knowing how important water is to weight loss, I have tried a few methods to insure I get at least my 64 oz a day. And actually those of us who live in hotter climates (it gets to 120* here in the summer) should be drinking even more.
At work I either 1) Keep a post it on my water bottle with the latest time I took a swig. I try to do every 30 minutes, not a guzzle just a swig. 2) Take a swig every time I notice my body heat go up (when I get upset, stressed or a cute guy walks by :)194
*** Keeping track of your water also helps the day go by waaaayy faster :)
