Lost pound # 13 today. Not bad, 13 pounds in 3 months. I'm even slightly ahead of my goal line. I just didn't like the way I lost it; I think this stomach bug I've had the past couple of days is the main cause. I could barely eat. Of course, ... Read more
Food, Bug, or Medication?

Terribly sick to my stomach today, and a migraine on top of it. After getting really sick, I'm finally feeling better, eating crackers and tea. Don't know if it was something I ate, a stomach bug, or the meds again. I'm really hoping to get bett... Read more

I was observed by one of the assistant principals today, and everything went well. I did a lesson on clothing items in German; I brought a basketful of clothes in and taught them the names, and then we played a game. The kids were great, everyon... Read more

The blood sugar battles are in full swing. I woke up to a sunrise, an alarm clock that hadn't gone off, and sugar levels of 230. I popped my pills, wolfed down a slice of bread, jumped into the shower and then some clothes, watched by my angry b... Read more

Diabetes Battle
Sunday, February 03, 2013      5 comments

Well, obviously the diabetes got my declaration of war, because it fought back with a sugar level of over 240, which I drowned in the pool right away. After 35 minutes of swimming, it was down to a relatively tame 150 - still high, but not in th... Read more

My body, my brain, and I have decided to officially declare war on the diabetes. There's three of us against one, so our chances are good. We're fighting on all fronts: nutri... Read more

Here are some diet/fitness tips that don't work for me, and what I do instead: Tip: "Always shop on a full stomach." Me: Are you insane? I hate shopping anyway. If I shop on a full stomach, I just grab the bare necessities, and then there... Read more
Morning Routine: Spark Coach
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      1 comments

They say it takes 21 days for a new habit to become ingrained. I've been on SP for over 70 days, so I should be alright. A couple of weeks ago, I added Spark Coach. I did the free trial and then took advantage of the "get 3 months and a couple o... Read more

Yesterday, I swam for 40 minutes. Then, my best friend called and suggested a bike ride. We rode for 30 minutes on the nature trail. Afterwards, we went to eat at Country Buffet (I love that place because I can eat lots of meat and veggies and g... Read more

So everyone is writing about their motivation, and there are lots of articles and videos on SP about it. Most people have a whole list of good reasons: kids, family members, running a marathon, living better, climbing Mount Everest, etc. Very go... Read more

I'm really internalizing the Spark People philosophy. Last night I had a dream where I explained to someone how the body uses a certain amount of calories just for everyday activities (Basic Metabolic Rate). I even got the numbers right in the d... Read more

Jessie, my female cockatiel, kept me from going to the gym tonight. As usual, I had the cage open. Jessie is not the best flier; she tends to crash land, but never gets hurt. I have soft carpet everywhere, so that cushions her. This time, tho... Read more

Yesterday started somewhat badly; I forgot to take my diabeted medication and had to turn around on my way to work to go home and take it. Luckily, my colleague covered for me for the couple of minutes until I arrived. Since I didn't take the me... Read more
