Long Time no Type ...
Tuesday, April 19, 2016
It has been a while since I last blogged. To be perfectly honest, it has been a long time since I've done anything on this site. Work has been crazy and I'm just starting to get new hours where I can do more than work, home, eat, sleep, repeat. A week or so more and I should be on a normal 8-10 hour per day schedule!
But just because I've been gone doesn't mean I have stopped doing what I need to do! I am finally back to the weight I was before I went on vacation - only took 5 weeks to do it, but it isn't a race, right?! - so I'm doing something kind of right. It is taking longer but it is still going in the right direction.
Last week was a doctor's appointment which was another affirmation that I'm doing something right. I was SO EXCITED to get my test results back!! My A1C is 6.1!!!!!!! I almost fell outta my chair when I saw that number! For those that don't know, diabetics need to be below 7, my doctor would have been happy with a 6.7 she said. I got it down much further! :) Then I got to my cholesterol numbers and just had to do a "happy dance". My cholesterol is 180-something, my "good" cholesterol is 109, and my triglycerides are 247. I need to work on that next but a HUGE improvement from where I started - which was so high they couldn't even measure it!
I'm going to keep plugging away and thinking about what I eat before I eat it - not after. A bad habit of mine. I still have my slips - too many for me to admit really - but I never quit!!
I hope everyone is doing well... and thank you to everyone who has been checking in on me throughout my hiatus. I miss you all and appreciate you greatly!!!!
