Do You Need An Adjustment?

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

This morning I was grabbing a favorite out of my nutrition list and took a good look at what was under it. Yes it's convenient, but I certainly noticed a pattern. There was a lot of sweet stuff in there. I was originally going to delete my cappuccinos that had sugar in them because I've been drinking way to many of them and I've noticed an increase in weight and also my sugar levels have increased. A fasting blood sugar yesterday was 140. I've never had problems with my sugar at all. Is this an eye opener? Yep! It sure is. Diabetes runs in my family. I've been blessed up to this point but I also know there's a lot I can do to avoid the extra sugar. So...I'm reworking my nutrition. The doc has asked that I repeat the labs I just had done because my potassium was low and she had doubled up by BP med which is basically a water pill. So once again my med was changed back to the original strength which was 12.5 mg.

I haven't done what I attended to do in 2015. I've let an entire year pass me by without really trying or trying in spurts, if you know what I mean. I really need to buckle down and take a good look at what I'm doing to myself and that needs to start with me, inside and out. I need to readjust my goals. Make them simpler. I also need to get more involved in the teams I'm currently in. I'm sorry I've been a slacker and you know what? I need to forgive myself for not following through.

That's my blog for the day. How many of you that read this also need an adjustment? Can we readjust together? Can we hold each other accountable? Can we just be there for each other? I really need the support. This is a cry from me to you for help. I am thanking you each in advance. Anyone that hears my cry I will answer back personally with something that you can help me with and perhaps I can reciprocate as well for you.

Just for kicks ~
