Blood and Taxes, or should I say Taxes and Blood?
Friday, February 28, 2020      2 comments

This mornings glucose levels was much lower, thank goodness. Older DD texts me to get my number in the early morning but I told her today not to worry, if it gets unreasonable again I will let her know. Nice that she worries about me. Las... Read more
Testing myself with a glucometer
Thursday, February 27, 2020      3 comments

Last week, in an effort to get a better handle on my blood glucose level, I purchased a gluocometer from Meijer. It came with a finger poking device which, initially, I was pretty afraid of using. Turns out there are different gauges of the ne... Read more

Just weight training today with some elliptical and stationary bike work. Did 35 minutes on the bike, my longest time ever. Didn’t take my audiobook and just watched TV. The TV is way too close so periodically I would have to look away out th... Read more

Went back to the Y Center yesterday after my mini vacation last week. And since I’d been having so much fun walking at the mall I decided to do both as my workout. Walking a mile at the Y takes 16 laps. Just one lap that incorporates 3 stores... Read more

Went back to work yesterday for a partial day. My official boss, who works in a different building and rarely comes to where I am, came to the middle school yesterday. She wanted to find out what exactly I do, how I use the computer program th... Read more
Day 4

Had a tough time sleeping last night. My room at the park inn was incredibly hot. Even laying on top of all blankets and sheets brought me no respite. At one point I actually contemplated opening a window but that would have been bad of me si... Read more

Went to our local mall today and did the circuit I had promised DH I would walk & measure. Walking the mall and the loop thru Target and the loop thru Kohl’s was almost 1-1/2 miles. Just a sqweeje under. I need to figure out how to get that li... Read more

Walked just a mile today at the Y Center. Basketball games downstairs were pretty noisy and it was hard to concentrate on my audiobook so I started watching the guys shooting the baskets. There was one fellow, around 15, who is pretty darn goo... Read more

I have been very faithful going to the Y Center now for almost 2 full months. I go at least 4 times a week. There are days when I mean to go but for some reason just don't get the chance. If I don't go right from work I just don't do it, thou... Read more

Yesterday at the Y Center I tried using the elliptical that moves from side to side. The Y I go to has three different types of elliptical machines, last week I attempted to get on one of the rear drive ellipticals but it was too difficult for ... Read more

This is my third week of going to the Y Center after school each day. So far it is working out really well. I get there, walk a few laps then run a few more. Do that off & on thing for 24 laps (16 is a mile) then off to lift some weights. I ... Read more

Day off from school. Not a holiday but who cares, a day off is a day off. Walked further than DH and I did yesterday. I also ran three times which was actually enjoyable. Can’t believe I said it. I had fun running. And I was wearing my... Read more
A little running, a little shopping

Ran again yesterday. It was pretty cold so didn't get as far but DH ran too, about my speed which was nice. Our walk took us farther than ever so I was pretty successful getting in all my steps. Then my daughters dragged me off to the mall fo... Read more
Not a good day

Blood work came back not good this year. I have switched from Slim Fast for lunch to eating a yogurt. I thought this was a good switch as I just couldn't face another bottle of Slim Fast. Just looking at one would make me gag. I really like ... Read more

DH and I went walking as is our usual in the early AM on the weekend. We do long, long walks and last week (or was it the week before) we started doing some running too. Yesterday I started running when he stops to, well you know what guys lik... Read more
