I will stop freaking myself out because I didn't do something simple.

One should change the lancet on the glucose meter every century or so, self.

Remember this next time you don't eat anything and yet your sugars read 199+.

Check the strips that they are not old. Make sure you change the damn lancet.

Back "one day at a time"ing. Feel better already.

The past week was bonkers in many ways. This week will be better.

Plus, vacation next week! Maine coast ahoy!

*hugs to all*

I discovered something!

When I exercise my blood sugar goes down! Like, a lot! OMG!

Yes, I know I've been diabetic forever. yes, I know they kept telling me this.

But I've never really checked before. Well, duh, self.

Totally making exercise part of my daily life. Totally. :)

How are YOU all doing?

Somehow, I lost 3 pounds between last night and this morning.

This brings my total poundage lost since I started the "One Day at a Time" eating habit to 9.

Nine. Dude, that's the most I've lost in forever.

I am *so* going to the gym tomorrow. :)

It...has not been a great week, but it hasn't been horrible either. I am still making good food decisions 4 out of 5 times so I think that's pretty good. I've slipped on my water intake. I really need to spread those 8-10 glasses of water out over a longer period of time.

But I've been feeling sort of run down and tired. I'm wondering if it isn't PMS because it's almost time. I'd welcome it coming early this month so that I can NOT have that on my vacation. But onward and upward, as they say. I'm really digging strawberries these days.

The next big thing I need to add into my routines is time at the gym. I'm going to Maine the day after my birthday and I'll need to build up my walking time. Maine is a very 'walky' vacation.

My diet is getting better and better.

However, prayers and good thoughts and...hell, anything good you can throw at me would be appreciated.

I'm trying so hard, please let it pay off.

One Day at a Time (no, not the one with Valerie Bertinelli), Day Three:

I feel so great, truly. I'm drinking water, avoiding sugar, and that's about it. Oh, and the Tea of Awesome.

My joints actually bend decently, I can walk a distance without a)getting winded, b) having excruciating calf pain. My blood sugar is coming down, and I'm AWAKE during the day, which is a big plus.

I have also lost three pounds of water weight. My pants aren't tight anymore. :D!

I am doing this for ME. I don't care if that three pounds is water-weight. I'll take it! I am losing weight for my health only, so I can be around for my husband and son. I'm going to take care of ME. I can't wait for anyone to do it for me.

I will concentrate on one day at a time, one meal at a time, one decision at a time. I will have my water each day and I will not eat anything that comes out of a drive through window.

Eventually, I will incorporate more fruit and vegetables into my diet. But that will come in time.

This time, I must succeed. And I will.

(wow, maybe I should have the music from a battle scene in LotR inserted here) :)
