Challenge Assignment

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

I am supposed to blog about my progress today, Day 6:

I decided to do this on a Thursday evening and started learning about the SP changes. After a couple of days I decided to join the Diabetic Challenge and use that food tracker since I am prediabetic and bloodwork is coming up next month. Everything has gone well so far.

Today. Well, today I am on the road with my trucker husband headed to Texas from Indiana, and being on the truck is always a challenge, more with exercise than anything due to time and lack of safe walking areas. So far though, I have walked Miss Bella and followed up with 10 minutes of upper body strength training with 5# dumbbells. I have a healthy breakfast logged and the fridge, freezer, and pantry are all stocked with healthy foods. I do cook our meat ahead due to limited time so I only have to cook vegetables. I do almost always cook a fresh breakfast and sometimes prepare a meal in the Aroma 3-in-1 rice cooker.

All in all I am quite pleased at the way the first week has been going. Balancing my macros by the meal to keep my blood sugar steady is a little challenging since that option seems only available on my Macbook that travels with us. At least I haven't figured how to do it on my phone or small android tablet.

I am particularly thankful for those of you who have jumped on board to encourage me!

    You can beat prediabetese. I'm proof of that! I got started with Diabetes Prevention Program, That got me on track to losing weight and exercise when I "couldn't" do it.

    Making my meals in a big rig, hadn’t considered the difficulties there!

    If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't.
    Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
