I like the Bay City Expo in March. It is at the Valley Plaza in Midland. I feel like the Bay City paper is making fun of the Midland Daily. It is conveient for me it is less than a mile.

Woo Hoo I heard it is to be 68 on Wednesday close enough to 70 for me. Now watch it snow.....Well have a fantastic Tuesday. Later all.

It was cold....I went to the diabetes fair. Abbott labs gave me a new meter. Mine is only 3 months old. Bayer has a web site for getting a coupon for $20.00 if you have insurance for test strips. And I like this new meter I saw. It tracks you all day and is remote controlled. Of course not cover by Blue Cross. Neat information I gained. And I was exhausted last night after 2 days of fairs. It was a six hour walk at the woman fair at SVSU and it was not as good as it has been in the past. And not as many pens too. And I gained a pound miffed at myself for that. Oh well will do better next week.

Take Wilder home from Bay City as you can avoid Auburn that way. Pick me up a pop at the party store most times. I like the Meijers in Bay City as they have a bigger selection. I want to try Krogers as they double up to a dollar on Euclid. Every time I plan to go there something happens so I end up at Krogers in Midland or Meijers. If you ever are on Water Street stop at the Americana and ask for Betty. He can usually find me. Had a good day. Food wise. I would like to meet you face to face. I voted yesterday and was suprised at some of the outcomes in Bay County. Should be interesting coming up.

I know the Midland Meijers is so usually they all do the same. Found out it is Diabetic Day. I would call the Wilder Meijer to find out. That is a much nicer store than Midland's. I will be that way tomorrow so I will find out if they are.

don't often go to Meijers for anything, usually Kroger. something like that makes it worth a trip to go see what their doing.

Getting my walking in, looking forward to the womens fair at SVSU. Mid-Michigan Hospital is having a diabetic fair on Saturday Nov 6th. From 9-12. They are doing testing and giving freebies away. And lectures. I am doing both the same day. I will be over walked but I will have a ton of ink pens lol.

if nothing else, there are mall walker progerams that are free. they have charts to show how far you are walking and maps of the mall for laps. it's a safe public place and you don't have to worry about the weather. not sure if fashion Square does this, but the Bay City Mall does.

I never thought about SVSU...it's kinda far, but I could make it out there once or twice a week for a SERIOUS jog! I'm gonna go check out the website now and see if it would cost anything.

hey guys! Popping in once in a great while! Been very busy since April with exercise: Zumba, jog/walking and now I'm doing fitness boot camp with Sarah Fechter...I've lost 55 lbs. since April so I've been doing great. A little stressed about
winter and where I can jog at, but I'll figure it out I guess. There's always Center Courts, but the thought of going around that tiny little circle for 45 minutes make me want to puke! LOL I talk to Heather on Facebook and she's doing okay...she's busy with her son and job hunting! Hope everyone's doing well.........

Bad day, I broke down and ate two peanut butter cookies at work, had to stay til 6 to finish some stuff, Jim made brats for dinner and potato salad, love them but way to many calories and fat.... Gets dark to soon to run when you don't get home til almost 7...... This time of years brings a hard transition for me, I am mourning the end of summer!

One day at a time, I can do this...
