I was not thrilled with my health behaviors yesterday-- it was my husband's birthday, featuring too much fondue (good stuff though). I am still under the weather and have felt oddly "diabetic" the last couple of days-- I get too tired, get hungry too quickly when I shouldn't be, feel a bit loopy and weak. I checked my fasting sugar and it was bad--118. Obviously weight loss alone is not enough to keep my numbers down. I almost wrote a post about "I'm going to do this tomorrow," but I thought it would be much better to do it, and then write about it. Which I did. I ate much better today-- smaller portions, better foods. Some leftover chocolate, but otherwise on the mark. Since I'm still not feeling great I allowed my work out to consist of shoveling (a foot and a half of snow!), pulling my daughter on her sled and helping with the snowblower (hey, that thing's heavy!) Funny how improper behavior => not feeling good. Let's hope it works the other way too.

  1. Ohhh, I'm sorry you're feeling so draggy, and I hope the focus on healthier foods will give you some zip! (I really think Spring is the only thing going to bring some of us any "zip".)

    Good for you for getting some fun and "fun"ctional exercise in! :)

  3. I can't imagine one and half feet of snow. Wow that was a workout. I hope that you feel better soon!

    My anniversary is today and my son's 13th birthday. A lot of cake going on around here.

  4. I hope today is a better day for you. I was kind of draggy and down feeling yesterday too. Eating better yesterday will no doubt have some good effects for you.

  5. You owned your evil (as Sunny would say) and then ate better - nothing to worry about. You'll get there!

  7. You said you felt oddly diabetic...is that something you're going to check into with a doc? (are you feeling extra worried about it?)

    I sure hope you feel better soon. Keep thinking about the 22nd!!

  10. @ Gina, 22nd's coming! Yay!

    I keep an eye on my blood sugars. They've been up, not sure why. If they don't trend better I'll be checking in with the doc but I'm still bouncing in prediabetic territory.
