Hey Marie, I've only lived here a year but I love it! And for my diabetes connection: I'm a writer with Diabetes Forecast magazine. I'm in the process of posting a request on the boards. I'm doing a story on success stories--people with diabetes (type 1 and 2) who have big or little successes--and was hoping some TuDiabetes users will contact me with their stories.
he was bad and didn't make it visible iin his stats. probably hoping that no one would know that it was his b-day that way. evidently someone put it out there. i said happy birthday to him in that blog. but i will send him a personal one as well. thanks for the reminder.
getting my hair cut today. i can't see when it falls in my face. this way it's not fresh cut at the wedding.
still not taking any d meds and my sugars are staying down between 98 and 120. i really like that. haven't lost anymore weight. i seem to have hit a leveling spot, but it will pick up again soon. getting back to walking will help.
have a scrumptious day.
The granola does smell great when cooking. Hope everyone enjoyed it.
It's about 10 carbs per cup. I've packaged some for my local health food store & it sold out fast. Been in touch with some reps about marketing it. Am disgusted with the chemical laden crap that passes for diabetic food.
wow, we have finally been getting some great weather. it could be a little warmer but i'm not complaining. i took yesterday off and just chilled. it was just what i needed. steph had her thyroid appt today and it's looking good. her bs levels are near normal so she doesn't need the meds for it that she needed before. we don't know why but it seems that her being pregnant kept the levels up. so now that she won't be getting preggers anymore maybe, just maybe she can concentrate on losing weight and keeping the time when she needs to have the thyroid surgery at bay. but the doctor did tell her that if she lost weight the choking feeling in her throat probably would go away. with that appointment that made one less thing to have to worry about.
i haven't been walking a lot lately, unless you call mall walking, walking. so yesterday i started back on the old treadmill. only 15 minutes yesterday, but a half hour today. i forget how good i feel when i've walked. i have to get back to walking everyday. now that steph understands that she has to lose weight i can get her out walking the town paths. the boys can ride there bikes and we can push sammie in her stroller.
are you feeling any better? i wish i lived close to you so i could make you smile. just think of me as a clown jumping around in front of you, my falling on my behind should bring a smile to your pretty face. take care my friend.
Thank you for welcoming me aboard. The only hospital in Culpeper Virginia is Culpeper Regional Hospital. It is a small hospital and was recently acquired by the University of Virginia Hospital. We look for great changes!
yesterday was absolutely fantabulous. the temp was perfect with a slight breeze. little sammie was put in her playyard and fell asleep almost instantly. she slept throughout the whole shower. everyone was jealous. i made fruit kabobs and they were a big hit. i went cheep on the punch and bought cheap ginger ale and it tasted terrible but other then that we had a great day. as soon as i can i'll get pictures on. stevie showed up just in time to open presents and stayed and helped brian take down the tent when everything was done. we didn't need to make dinner because everyone munched on leftovers. stevie scouted out all the strawberries and ate them. he gets a mild tingling in the back of his mouth if he eats watermelon so he avoided that. brian made a meal out of the leftover sausage quiche cups. i ate a couple of cream puffs and fruit and some cukes and carrots. i ate real slow because i was picking up stuff between bites so my stomach wasn't upset. the boys were happy because they could eat whatever they wanted and sammie was eating the pudding out of the puffs and cheese slices. she liked the punch too. steph was like me and eating between working.
one of my neacklaces that steph made for me broke in my bedroom. now i have to get down on the floor and feel through the carpet for the rest of the beads.
i'm so sorry that you had a bad conversation with your ex-boss. it sounds like it's her problem, not yours. don't let her get to you. you have enough going on in your life without adding her crap to the mix. are you still going to the fair anyway? i hope so. i would hate to see you give up your fun because of someone else.
three weeks until the wedding. i think everyone will be glad when it's over. steph and i are taking a few days off then we will do the vases for the wedding.
oh it went great thanks for asking. i am sure glad i didn't have to use the extra strength pills. *does happy dance* i drank a little bit of water right before i went because i woke up with a tad bit of a higher blood sugar that made me feel bleh. they had to flush out the little amount of water i did drink and then they gave me the anesthesia and boy does that stuff work fast i was so dizzy i felt sick and then nighty night. it was great, i wish they had given me a prescription for that stuff.
My status update is not working either. I tried to get it working, but just gave up :( I saw that there is another Twitter based application (click here). Perhaps you can try that? (not sure if it is the same as status updates...)
Thanks for asking about my numbers. They have actually been pretty good recently. My meter average is saying 140 now... without many lows. The average was up a lot higher when I "fell off the wagon". I haven't had an A1c since February (my endo here doesn't do it every three month), but from the fact that readings above 200 are rare again, I know that things are going better. I haven't been eating very low carb, but I now accept that it will be the only thing that gets my levels ready for pregnancy. So I will be trying to reduce my carbs over the next months.
Hi Marie: I love your quilts! You posted that you used to live in North Hills. Looks like you moved to the snow, how are you doing with that? I would love to leave this area but the weather is so nice and I haven't lived anywhere else. Hope the diabetes is under control for you. Again the quilts are amazing! Which quilt show were you in?
aw shucks ma'am, just tellin it like it is.
just got home from shopping for the bridal shower. forgot a few things and have to go out tomorrow for them. not to many though. just things like chips and dip and stuff to make the punch with. we are trying to find someone to watch the boys saturday afternoon for theresa's family's bridal shower. no luck so far. brian has to work but if he goes in early enough he might get back in time to keep them. we'll figure it out.
i am keeping my fingers crossed for our shower on sunday. right now it looks like the rain will be on saturday. but it can change.
how are things going for you? haven't heard much lately. have you heard anything back from your computer? were they able to fix it?
(I eat with unsweetened almond milk, or without almond milk for a snack.)
1 cup flax seeds
1 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup sliced almonds
3 ounces virgin coconut oil (or melted, unsalted butter)
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 TBS vanilla extract (or, you can use maple extract, or a combo)
3 packets of Splenda ( I use stevia)
In a large roasting pan, mix everything together. Toast in the oven at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 or 10 minutes. Keep an eye on this because it can burn easily, esp if you chop the nuts too fine.
