1/17/19- it's been awhile
Thursday, January 17, 2019      7 comments

Just a quick one today. Doing OK. I sprained my ankle a week or so ago, but it's healing well and doesn't hurt much. Of all things, I fell at the gym! I can walk on it fine but so I don't overdo it I've been spending my workout time on the... Read more
12/11/18- Update
Tuesday, December 11, 2018      5 comments

Since my diabetes diagnosis almost a month ago, I actually feel good! I was already making changes, but I made some more. My fasting blood sugar (the only one my doc has me checking for now) has gone way down already, and all I've done is cut do... Read more
Nov. 25- Church this morning
Sunday, November 25, 2018      0 comments

So the last couple weeks, I feel like there are a lot of things I’ve heard at church that were meant for me right now. Last Sunday, I was with my family and the lesson was about how sometimes our plans fail and sometimes God just wants us to wai... Read more

Tuesday, November 13, 2018      5 comments

So, had my 6 month checkup yesterday. The news yesterday was good- I am down 18# since my last visit in May, and my blood pressure is coming down! It’s within an acceptable range according to my doc, but I would like it to be better than accepta... Read more
Working on goals
Wednesday, October 17, 2018      3 comments

I have struggled this year. I didn’t realize it, but I hit a bit of a depressive funk late in the spring and it’s just now wearing off. I would have two or three or four days during the summer where I’d feel great and then just collapse. Now tha... Read more
Keep walking- 6/16/18
Saturday, June 16, 2018      3 comments

So, I decided the best way to get me going is to have goals to work towards. I did sign up for two 5Ks- the first one being The Color Run next month (which is just for fun, not competitive) and the Amish Country 5K in September. I want to finish... Read more
Goal setting- 5/29/18
Tuesday, May 29, 2018      5 comments

I set a goal for myself today. I haven’t done that in ages, at least not healthwise; it didn’t seem like a great idea at first because I didn’t have any idea what I was or wasn’t capable of. But I feel now that I’ve had some success, I can reach... Read more
All about choices
Wednesday, May 23, 2018      3 comments

One day at a time. One choice at a time. Just today, I made good and bad choices. Poor: I chose not to get up and work out (sleep is so nice!) and therefore, had to rush around and didn’t feel ready to go. Good: I stopped and got some oatmeal f... Read more
Making some changes (5/14/18)
Monday, May 14, 2018      5 comments

I’ve been off for a week because I’ve been struggling and honestly a little scared. I went to see my doctor last Monday for my well woman exam. My blood pressure is just a tad high and my doc said if I lose some more weight, she thinks I proba... Read more

Wednesday, May 02, 2018      8 comments

I’m glad I saw the typo I made before I posted- green eyed mobster would be a whole different story!! 😳 I’m doing OK on the eating and gentle exercising, and I’m down a little more than 25# since Thanksgiving. I’m proud of that. However, I can... Read more
Day two is OVER!- 4/19/18
Thursday, April 19, 2018      3 comments

I have this problem I call “day two”. I can make it through one day of regular portions instead of large, fruit instead of candy, water instead of soda, but then I tend to struggle hard on day two. Thankfully, I was busy all day yesterday and di... Read more
Doing this right- April 17, 2018
Tuesday, April 17, 2018      2 comments

I have been up and down my whole life. Skinny kid until puberty + parents’ divorce + being a latchkey kid hit me hard. Since age 13 I’ve been overweight to some extent. However, I’ve really struggled the last couple of years. I’m having trouble ... Read more
Just 5 pounds
Thursday, February 01, 2018      5 comments

I have NOT been doing particularly well for January- better than December where I did nothing, but I’ve not been consistent. I’ll eat well and track for two or three days, but the gym, and then take 10 days off!! But I noticed this morning that ... Read more
