I had my bloodwork done last week and saw my endocrinologist and my family doctor yesterday. My bloodwork was excellent! Both doctors were happy with the labs but were equally happy about my weight loss, which was due to a huge change in my diet... Read more

I am heading to the dentist this afternoon for another root canal. I wish I had better teeth! I have always taken care of them, but was never a milk drinker when I was a kid. I don't know if that's my problem or heredity, since my mom had false ... Read more

So I decided to make some changes after my bloodwork was kind of dismal. My previous blog explains the problems. This one is one to pat myself on the back! In 54 days, I've lost 10 pounds, have lowered my fasting blood sugar to near normal rea... Read more

Diabetes is hard! I saw my endocrinologist on Monday and was basically threatened with insulin if things didn't change. Things will be changing. My A1c was 7.4% and it was up from 6.7% in December. I usually see her every 3 months, but my ... Read more

Spring is here! But wait! Is it? From the high temperatures in the balmy 40's and 50's, I don't think so! We are actually having snow predicted on Friday, WHAT?! Snow, in May, what the?? To look outside, you'd think spring. Flowers and trees blo... Read more

Well, it's the eve of Christmas Eve and I am feeling relaxed. All of the shopping, baking, decorating and wrapping are done, so I have a day or two to straighten the house up for visitors. I didn't used to be this organized, I worked at th... Read more

It's been awhile since I blogged, so I felt like I needed to do one. Spring is FINALLY here in eastern Ohio! Our resident groundhog has come out from under our barn after a long winter's sleep. He looks pretty plump too, so he must've eate... Read more
Does the doctor really know best?

I've been seeing an endocrinologist since I was diagnosed with diabetes. She's pretty easy to get along with since we both want the same results. The only thing I have a problem with is that she tries to push a new drug on me every visit. I fina... Read more

Sorry, if you don't like reading complaining on blogs, because this is going to be one full of them! So here I go again, gaining instead of losing and I don't know WHY!! It drives me completely crazy to get on that scale and see it going up, w... Read more

My VERY favorite time of the year! I love the hot weather, I love being outdoors, even when it's working at cutting the grass (ours, the neighbor's and my father-in-law's) and working up a sweat, sitting on the porch yakking with the neighbors, ... Read more
Time for another Rant! :)

Winter is never an easy time for me. I hate being cooped up in the house, yet absolutely hate to go out in the cold and snow. What a dilemma :) So, it's almost midway through the shortest month of the year and the snow decided to sneak in last n... Read more
Happy to be Running?
Saturday, September 16, 2017      6 comments

Yes, I am! I actually had a pretty good laugh at myself this morning. I've ran twice this week with my trainer and was SO afraid to do it since all the drama with my foot. We only did a mile each time, but that is just a warm up to lifting. We w... Read more
Same Old Story.....

So here I am again, complaining about everything, hence the title, Same Old Story. I've been sidelined from walking and running for a couple months now and the elliptical just isn't the thing for me. I've been doing it 3 times a week before... Read more
Just a Rant
Tuesday, March 28, 2017      4 comments

I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. I cannot budge on losing weight, despite working out and watching my diet. I either have to kill myself in the gym or starve to see any little bit of progress. I hate to sound like this, but sometimes I just... Read more

At least that's what my trainer call it! LOL I never know what to expect from Luke, just when you get used to a certain way of working out, he completely changes things up on us. He trains me and my friend Paul at the same time, so we get a... Read more
