I've had problems taking my blood sugar reading and I blamed the monitor. It worked twice out of about 30-40 attempts and a lot of holes in my fingers. I was finally desperate enough to read the instructions .. and found out it was user error an... Read more

Survival of the off days

I stayed on track these past few days, at least eating wise. The scale has been kind and I've "relost" more of the pounds. I'm not back to my lower weight but at least the numbers are going in the right direction. Now i need to add my walking an... Read more
Confession of a chocoholic

Well one slip led to another, one bite led to a bag and two months later I'd regained twelve of the hard won pounds I'd lost. I got on the scale the other day and it read 219 and I realized I was about to be back into the 220s. I'd been slowly r... Read more

These past few days are the worst I've done since May when I started this healthier lifestyle. I did walk some, but food-wise, not go good. I did decently every day until dinner, then blew it. It was pizza one day (with the brownies I KNEW not t... Read more
Muggy, muggy morning
Tuesday, August 27, 2019      3 comments

I woke early and walked hoping I could beat the heat. The temps weren't too bad but it was super muggy, even with me walking at dawn. I walked for an hour, which is my new minimum time. I do hope to get in some longer walks, temps allowing, but ... Read more
