Stupidassbloggerfromhell! I typed a lovely update earlier, pressed publish and nothing happened! Freakin' crap!
Anyhow, spent last night on the treadmill, took a shower and went to bed. Had a restless night and woke up early, hit the treadmill again, took a shower and got ready to have my blood drawn. Regular checkup for Graves and testing for *dramatic music* Diabetes.
My Dr. is going out of town so I won't know the results until the 18th! *groans*
I'm worried but am in good spirits overall. I mean what more can I do at this point, I eat healthy and exercise so there won't be too much of a change there, it's the twice daily testing that's got me terrified. Funny how this entire journey has been to face my fears and I'd be having to face my biggest fear every day, twice a day. Ugh!
I exercised six out of the seven days last week which I'm really proud of! I skipped the seventh day as my allergies were killing me and I had major regrets the day after. I've continued with strength training and have been using weights and I'm slowly starting to see results from it.
I ate very well this past week, had wild salmon twice - not bad for a girl who hates fish! I've been sticking to fresh fruits and vegetables as they're still in season. Made a broccoli soup with purred steamed broccoli, water, a bit of salsa and spices. It was very good! I plan on eating mainly low fat soups and stews once the weather cools down, very natural and wholesome.
So, how did I do this week? Well, I lost .8 lbs which disappointed me slightly. At least my weight loss has been consistent and it'll add up in the end but still.
My cycle which was to have started already hasn't which I'm hoping is just a sign that my levels are off. Score one for Graves!
I've noticed a change in myself that I've become more and more serious with this entire goal, especially as far as exercise is concerned.
I noticed recently that my sneakers were looking a bit shabby. I bought these sneakers about a decade ago during the Tae Bo craze, bought those and the tapes. Probably did about three session and gave up - sorry Billy Blanks. So these sneakers were unused until I started WW.
When I started WW, my feet were so fat that the first couple of times I couldn't wear socks and could hardly tie them. That's just plain sad! Naturally as I've lost weight, my feet have slimmed down but I was afraid that they were still too wide to fit into normal sized sneakers. And really is there anything normal about a size 11 foot?
I heard that Amazon had this massive shoe sale along with an automatic $20 off any $80 shoe purchase so I decided to check it out and ordered these sneakers as they had good reviews on them over at Zappos.:The pair I'm currently using
these are on sale for $54.99 on the Naturalizer website.Bought these in redThough these were ugly but they're very comfortable!
I didn't even know that Naturalizer
sold sneakers! I was sure that these wouldn't fit me or that I'd have to spend weeks breaking them in but they fit perfectly! I didn't even have to break them in, they're perfect. In fact the ones I'm currently using are even a bit roomy!
Proof that I'm dedicated and committed to this journey! With that I'd like to plead my case to the Gods and Goddesses of the universe that I'm all about health so you can't stick me with diabetes now! That's just not fair!
And one last thing, what's up with Pluto not being a planet? You can't give something a title and take it away, that's just mean! Pluto is like the Vanessa Willams of the solar system.
Down with diabetes! Pluto's a planet!
