Back on track
Tuesday, May 06, 2014
I am so happy for myself that I did not cut back on exercise yesterday when I was feeling rough. I upped the time today again.. So far that is every day I have increased the exercise. I did not have as much pain sleeping last night but kept waking up for some reason. Husband is doing better. I am doing much better today. I think I was dehydrated for most of yesterday. I will make sure to do better today. These meds. They have so many side effects that wollup you. I keep getting told they should go away in a couple weeks. So I will push through. It is the meds not the low carb or exercise. There's a difference. I have had low carb flu in past years and this isn't it. My goal is to get off of these meds and shots. HA right now I am trying to stay away from the meanest man in the world...the nephrologist! I told the doctor I wont go back to that man. He's mean for the sake of being mean! Anyway, I am borrowing trouble with that so I need to put it behind me and move forward.
Gosh, it had been so long since I had been this close to 200. Makes you excited but scared cuz you know any little thing can tip that scale in either direction. More motivation to keep it going down. I am 10.5lbs away from 200. Pick and grab toward the goal...right? I got to keep reminding myself lower A1c, lower blood pressure and staying away from the nephrologist are my goals, not losing weight. I have focused on the weight too much in the past, I need to change the focus and appreciate the perk of losing weight along with it.
I have come a long way in the past week of fasting bsl of over 200 to lowering it to 115! Big big accomplishment. Today, since my day was rough yesterday I expected a higher fbsl. It was 140 this morning. BUT! Fluctuation or lack there of, is the key! Low numbers with little movement in the numbers! I already broke what my doctor set for me as a goal. His goal for me was 150 or lower on average. Yes, I did up my insulin to a higher unit a week ago, but I did not this week because my numbers have gone down so much. TAKE THAT! Doctor! TAKE THAT! bsl! haha silly I know, but I am happy I managed to do so well. It shows me my pancreas still is working, when we thought it might be shutting down. It is a scary feeling when you think and are told things are shutting down. Glad I could wake it back up!
Boy am I busting to go go go today! I did my exercise right away today! Yesterday I had to muster energy up in the afternoon, and yeah yeah had a lot of moaning and groaning. But by evening I was feeling much better and was happy I went through with the exercise earlier. Sunny day today! Think I will get out there in it some how some way.
Enjoy the sun!
