Hello all!!! I lost my nudgers. lol. But that is all fine. Got a friend who periodically nudges me. She is having surgery next week, so she isn't to thrilled right now. Feel bad for her. She usually is on top of my like salsa on a tortilla chip. lol So that being said, I am going to prove that I can do this even if she isn't up to the nudging. lol.
This same girl went to my endocrinologist with me yesterday. Was nice, especially since my accident my memory is not as sharp. She remembered something I couldn't so I could tell my dear hubby. Doctor is giving me a script for some nasal cream thing that will aid in clearing my insulin pump infections. So that was a plus. To boot...brace yourselves. Since the doctor last seen me, now mind you this is the one on me about all the weight I gained since the accident, I lost....drum roll 2.5 lbs!!!! Yay me. Ohhhhh it gets better. My hemoglobin A1c (an average percentage of what your blood sugars have ran for the last 3 months, for those unaware) went from a horrible 8 to a 7.2!!!!! I am making progress!!
It gets better. Yay. Last weeks weigh in 153.4lbs, 41.4 body fat, 42.7 hydration. This week 153 lbs, 40.3 body fat, 43.5 hydration. Finally. I'm showing the progress.
Those of you that remember my struggle with my extremely close family member. Yeah still not talking. But I wrote a letter 3 weeks ago to get some money she was holding. Finally got a response, got my money and a devasting letter that killed my core. But it is ok. She just point blanked me how she felt about things all around my life. ok. I can't fix a lot of that now...so I must move on. Be sorry and go on. Needless to say though, the money as soon as it is in, it is out to help get medical records. Sigh that part I can't win for losing. Was hoping to help keep us above water. We will and can still be ok. Sigh Hubby got a small raise after 2 years, but all helps. Yay hubby.
I had hubby download me 3 games for the Wii. Zumba, We cheer (thought I couldn't get Just Dance and this counts calories lol), and Just dance. Not sure if the last two are version 1 or 2 but still nice to have. I plan on trying Zumba and maybe we cheer today. I just want to be sure 1 they work, and 2 I get some exercise in today. God help me. lol
On the down side of how my progress has gone, I gave up the Spark challenge for the diabetes now. I just am not motivated or strong enough to prove to myself I can do it. I am going to keep all the goals in mind though and surely stick with the goals I set there. They suggest 3 15 minute strength videos or something a week and 3 cardio. You were also supposed to set some goals of your own. I am really bad at sugar checking when hubby isn't around and I don't have to go anywhere so I promised I would at least once a day, and I will. I am already seeing minor improvement here. I said I would drink more water...hmmm got to work on this tea doesn't count. lol.
My Appetite Avengers team is moving along this month. All goals were set for the team as of 1/31. I slacked and now I am going to work on proving I am strong and can do more than lead and encourage. That is this months goal for myself. I am not just I leader, I am a doer also.
As a side note, I have 2 sweaters finished for my Ozzy, another half done, AND, I am now working on a blanket for me and hubby. I am still reading. Reading Play Dead by Harlan Coben.
Once again I am proud of myself. Next blog maybe I will have some sort of streak going. lol
