So…I put off my blood work for like 5 months…fasting sucks. Finally got to my doctor for other issues (trigger finger and numb arms) however we did do some DB talk. Checked my a1c…went from 5.6'ish to 7.2'ish. Weight went up from 272 to 290… Ugh. I know why…I know I'm a dumbass…I should be on the treadmill right now, but I'm here instead. I am trying AGAIN to fix myself…cutting out the junk during the morning coffee run, getting just coffee instead of a half coffee half hot chocolate mix. I've been eating a bagel every morning for years…trying to change that. Need to figure out the food thing. My wife started some 21 day fix diet…sticking to her changes…some of them I have joined her on, but not all. I've never been into cooking or preparing food. I can boil pasta and nuke sauce from a jar…you're all cringing at that one. Haha. I haven't had pasta for a while. When I have it's been Dreamfields, though I eat too much of it. If it's tasty, I go for more. So weak. Lunch at work has been PB&J on wheat for a while now…that obviously needs to change. Having never learned to cook is biting me in the ass now. I've been home with the boys all day today and with crappy weather I am inside wanting to keep nibbling on food…I get pissed at some of the stuff I almost eat…and some of the stuff I do eat. I cut out my diet soda addiction 2 or 3 weeks ago. Drinking coffee in the morning, water all day and a Redds Ale or Woodchuck Cider with dinner. I'm not stopping those. I Ike burgers…though I have a hard time eating a burger without a bun…hard as in…hasn't happened, though I am trying to figure out what I can use instead of a bun. It's gotta hold my onion and condiments. Am I looking for responses … Ehh…feel free, but a big part of me came here to spout off and get it out somewhere at I can assume it'll be read. Doctor said I either get it under control or my next visit will consist of prescribing an injectable med…really don't want to go there.
