This is my first personal blog. I really don't know what to write - so I guess I'll just ramble this time. Today is my 3rd day (again) since starting over.
I saw my doctor for my annual physical on Tuesday and my hemoglobin A1C (3 month average of blood glucose) was 10.5. Normal range is 4.0 - 6.0. As you can tell, I am an uncontrolled diabetic. I have an awesome doctor who wants to find the root of the problem. We discussed things going on with my father-in-law and one of my husband's brothers and how that leads to high stress in my life. He came up with a plan of attack to lower my A1C and gave me 6 months to accomplish this. I've never been one who like exercise so it's hard for me to get off the couch. I've forced myself the last 2 nights to take a 10 minute walk with my dogs. I felt more energized after doing this. Maybe I should be walking with them in the morning instead of after dinner to benefit from the additional energy, but I'm not a morning person.
I have a home-based business selling embellishments for scrapbooking. I have 30 orders to get in the mail today - so I'll be very busy. I'm also getting ready for my first craft show. I'm really excited about doing the craft show.
As the 7 Dwarfs sang in Snow White - Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work I go!
