Healthy Updates

Hey there! Glad you could make it today! Weigh In was this morning. I managed to loose the 2 lbs I gained the week before... Go Me! I was hoping for some additional weight loss but I'll take the 2 lbs.

I was walking for my exercise this past week. The water in the lake is low, grass is all over the place in the swimming area and the water has an odd odor... so... I started walking. I was only doing about 10 minutes of walking and I was having to do it in small bursts and spurts. I was very concerned it wasn't going to be enough to allow for some weight loss but thankfully it was.

Today I managed to walk 16 minutes and I walked for longer at a stretch each time. Progress... Progress is good.

I am having a little trouble food wise. Nothing seems to pique my appetite and as a result I'm just sort of eating on auto-pilot. I don't know if its because we need to vary the food we are eating, the need to try new recipes or if its just a mental slump. I'm fighting through it though. Lunch seems to be my biggest obstacle. I'm just not hungry so I eat small and light. Lately lunch has been grapes, green, seedless grapes. No protein just fruit. Probably not the best choice for a diabetic but its working so far.

Speaking of my diabetes... my blood sugars have been GREAT. Fasting numbers are running from the mid 80's to the low 100's which is really good. I'm quite pleased with it.

So... now its YOUR turn. What have YOU been up to? Have you been trying to foster healthy habits or are you just flying by the seat of your pants? What's working or NOT working for YOU?

You are so awesome that you have kept up with all this stuff, funny water smells and all. I've been working on a bag of Cheetos, I need to be more like you girl.
Those grapes are calling my name, just need to make it past the Cheetos...
