Another good day!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

The biggie today is I went for my diabetes appts. and found out that I have my AIC down to 6.9..... WooHoo..... they want it under 7.0!!!! It was up as high as 8.3. My cholesterol ratio is great, so is my HDL and even my triglycerides, but the only unhappy face is that Lousy Cholesterol and the total because of the LDL. So, how do I beat that? May try the oat bran from the F Plan book and see if it can really make any difference.

Also, I asked about the resistance band workout they've designed, and she gave me a DVD, and even a FREE stretchy band.... Was this a good day or what...

Well, weather has been up in the air all day, is it going to rain, is it not? So far it hasn't but it looked so close that Buddy and I haven't gotten out... but there's no excuse I don't do this soon.

My sis and her dh (who just had his bladder cancer surgery) are coming here on Sat. Dr. told him to travel while he feels good...don't know if that is a death sentence or what....

Well, Buddy and I must go walking....*** We got in 3 laps around the reservoir, took its toll on the last lap, but sure glad we did it.

    Hooray for the good report from the doctor. My baby left last night, so I'm down today. Woke up with a migraine - first one I've had in awhile. Thank goodness the wet washrag on the forehead works.

    Congrats on the A1C!! Way to go!

    And a free DVD and stretchy band...woot woot! I know that cholesterol is a pain.

    Hey, does blood sugar go up sometimes when it is really hot out? My morning read is about 10 points higher than normal.

    Hope your brother in law is improving.

    HUG!! hope you get a little walk in!! emoticon emoticon

    Great job on those numbers!
    It feels so good to know you actually did something to get off those meds, doesn't it? I know: I have been able to get off of my blood pressure medicines totally by losing weight and exercising more. I get rain here every day. I can never tell when it is going to rain here in the mountains, so I go out whenever the dogs ask. I have been caught a couple of times in a cloudburst, but I haven't melted yet! I kind of like walking in the rain.
