I did something today that I had been talking that I was going to do. Actually two things. One I had been putting off because I was afraid of aggravating an old back injury.
I lowered my insulin to 15 units. 15! units! I am almost off. And I went to the gym and rode the upright bike. Not the recumbent bike this time. It was much harder for me. Much harder than I expected. I wanted to quit after 5 or 10 minutes but pushed through to 30 minutes and figure I would keep working at the 30 and expand on that time hopefully soon.
I am tired today. I have been waking up at 4 am instead of 5:30 am...the only thing I can figure is the time change.
I am putting into action a reward for myself on Thursday. I am going to get my eyes checked and hopefully getting contacts! I haven't had contacts in ages. I will get a pair of glasses too but the big deal is the contacts. I am pretty excited about that.
I figured out the cost of money I will need to take with me on my trip in December. I set up budgets for the month. Made dinner for myself and for everyone else. I feel like I have been busy all day.
OH! Update on the dogs we have been watching. Their "daddy" got a hold of us today and let us know he found a place to live that allows dogs and will be moving in at the end of the month! He is going to be coming for a visit this Saturday. He misses his babies.
The other day my weight went back up to over 172 lbs again. That bummed me out. BUT! I know I can get back down. I just really am looking for the number to drop since my blood sugar is so well under control and don't need to really work on that anymore since it is even better than I had been working toward. Sighhh I have been working soooo hard. Being soooo good. Believing soooo hard. I know it will happen and I am being patient. I think it is normal to have a little let down to see the scale go up. That was a few days ago.

Keep at it guys, I plan to. emoticon
