Yesterday I went to my 3 month doctors visit. My blood sugar was 94 compared to 244 the last time I went. Yay me!!!! LOL!!! This time my appt was in the afternoon compared to morning, which makes a huge diference in my numbers.
I talked to him about my diet and the amount of testing that I do, 2 of the things that I get a lot of slack about, and he said it was all good. In fact, he eats the same way (totally clean). He had no problem with me testing all the time either. Talk about valadition!!! I wanted to scream to the heavens "I TOLD YOU SO"
He was also proud of my for quitting smoking and not gaining any weight during the holidays and after quitting smoking. Oh my gosh, my doctor is proud of me!!!!! I have to go either Mon or Tues to get blood work done to find out what my a1c is, how my cholesteral is, and etc.
Now for the down side, my blood pressure is a little high and I'm not losing weight. I need to start working out at home. I work out on my 1/2 hour lunch break but it's not enough. How to y'all make yourselves exercise when you just don't feel like it?
Anyways, all in all a pretty good visit!!!!!
God bless!!!

How good it is to take on the challenges you have
You met them head on and reached for life
I would say I am proud of you too!

I bought the biggest loser walking dvd
Its a one mile light step exercise that lasts 15 minutes
There are two on the tape

I also have a dvd of 08 min workouts.
There is 08 minute abs, buns, arms, legs all on one dvd
They are real workouts.
I can do one and its hard but so short that its easy to do
no matter what I am feeling

Hi Christy. I was wondering if you could share the name of the 8 min workout DVD and whether it can be bought in stores or online?

pixsidust 2012-01-24 19:57:06 -0600 Report

I got it on Ebay for $8.35 Its called 08 Minute Core Workouts: Abs, Arms, Thighs, Buns & Stretch (DVD, 2007)

Thanks Christy. Just found it on Amazon for just $2 more. I also found the same low impact aerobics tape that I have but it's not offered on DVD. That's okay though…there's plenty others to choose from.

Been meaning to tell you I finally got that DVD. I love it! It's perfect for those days when I don't want to do much but know I need to do something. Took me a little bit to realize that I need to get into some of the positions faster because the clock is ticking down even as the people on the DVD are gathering equipment and stuff.

Congratulations on your success. Validation feels great, doesn't it. I'm stuck at testing only 3 times a day but will be back to my normal amount of testing (6x) soon enough. Can't wait though, the not knowing in between is driving me crazy.

Oh yeah…for working out at home, take time out to go for walks and maybe look into getting some work-out videos.

Great job!!
I too have trying to get back to exercising, I fell off the wagon over the holidays.
This morning I got forced into walking, I accidentally locked the keys in the truck and had to walk my grandson to school and will have to walk to pick him up later. Hopefully the rain holds off. ;-)
Maybe this will get me kick started!

Glad things are going well for you. I do have a question tho. What does "eating totally clean" mean?

besther414 2012-01-23 11:33:11 -0600 Report

Mrscdogg, eating totally clean means, no processed foods, no foods with added sugar in any of it's varieties, (including articficial sweeteners). I eat fresh/frozen veggies, fruits, chicken breasts, eggs, salmon, and nuts!! I also make my own smoothies!!!

Wonderful report! Celebration time. How wonderful to feel such complete validation.

When I used to have some time and wanted to watch t.v., I would make myself use the cardiofit machine while I was watching. That was my "condition" to myself…I wasn't going to turn it on without working while I was there. I've done the same thing with a favorite book which I bought in large print so I could read it ONLY while on the treadmill.
