First major goal already met reduce my blood sugar levels. My 3 month average was over 16, sugar starting to show up in urine so my dr. referred me to specialist as he thought I have to go on insulin (yep, that was MY a-ha moment) The appt with endocrinologist is for July 9. Happy to say I have an appt with my reg dr this Wednesday as he gave me add'l med to try and reduce my sugar levels and I had to stop taking it bcos it was making my bs level too LOW. My readings this past week are now almost normal in the 6.0 range! Im hoping hell tell me that we can cancel the specialist.

Goals this week:
1. Drink more water I am only averaging about 30 oz/day, not enough for initiation into pcc!
2. Start walking Hope I am very encouraged by you. I have FM too, along with chronic pain and it is a struggle every day to move esp. since I am working full-time. I start tomorrow, even if its only 15 minutes its more than Im doing right now!
3. Get more sleep I normally get a good 8 hrs but the past couple of weeks have been crazy and my avg is only about 6. Need to get back on track.
4. Post my before pics I did get them taken this weekend, but last couple of days have been very busy, promise to post tomorrow.


Mike, I looked at your pics 210.4 vs 174: what I found most impressive was not just weight loss, but the overall difference in your posture. INCREDIBLE!
You are welcome to join! We just so happen to have one more spot available. Nice set of goals you have there.
Thanks! I never realized how much my gut was killing my posture until I saw that pic. It's an eye opener!

3. 3-4 fruits and veggies daily. Yes

6. 80-100 oz. of liquids a day. Yes

A really good day today... Lots of sunshine, hiking and catching up on lots of miscellaneous junk. And, most importantly, my food choices were stellar! lol
Nice job Quinniepoo. I say you add some color to your updates.

1) 1,600 calories max/day (allow myself 1 guilt free day over 1,600) - 1491
2) do 2 exercises on days I don't work (walking/weights/gardening/Richard Simmons/stationary bike) - 1hr walking/nothing else
3) 20% protein minimum - 23%
4) 64oz water minimum - not sure; not enough
5) calorie deficit 700+ - 716
6) take vitamins - yes
7) lights out by 11 the night before - yes
8) no food after 8pm the night before - no
I didn't get a chance to read your rant, I'll check it out tomorrow. We all rant here, I think I'm the king of it. I hope will get to see less red tomorrow!

Nice job slacker! After seeing your water numbers I'm going to have to take down another bottle. I'll be editing mine when I do. As you see I added that other goal (#4) that we talked about. Great job so far, keep it up!!

But thanks for raising the awareness (in pink)!

If the only way you can beat me is to cheat, then have at it. Cassie, you're my witness. I had him on water till be saw my numbers.

I'll try and think of something I'm grateful for later. Right now I'm trying to beat the rain

Cheat? C'mon sourpuss! The purpose of this type of goal is to push each other, and it worked. Besides, this is cumlitative, so you can make that up before the week ends. Now if I would have edited my goals but didn't drink the water, you might have a case!

Wow! Lots going on here after I went to bed! (Am I the only morning person??? ) Another beautiful day, weather-wise, so I'm waiting for my coffee to finish brewing and then I'm off for another hike.

Excited to be back and concentrating on my health. It feels so good; I hate when that aspect of my life feels out of control.

Enjoy your day, everyone! Catch up with you all later!

quinn

p.s. Mike,
I don't know what's up with me and color... lol. I update everything during the day on notepad and then when I copy and paste it to fitday at the end of the day, the color doesn't transfer, so I bag it. But, your right... I have to add some fun back into my daily "stuff"! lol I have neon blue Nikes... does that count???

Cate, I was in a hurry yesterday and neglected to congratulate you on the marvelous job you've done bringing down your blood sugar. Kudos on being pro-active with changing your lifestyle to low carb.

Hectic morning already! 10 year old GD told me an hour before school she needed me to help her build about a two foot tall log cabin as a prop for a play she is presenting today. All she brought with her was construction paper "and we need it to stand up," she said. I'm not artistic at all but learned when my kids were young to save stuff that could be useful later for school projects. Lo and behold I found behind my desk a stiff, fake, cardboard type woodgrain pattern backing I had decided to not use on a cheap utility cart a few years ago. We fashioned a log cabin out of it and the strongest stuff I had to hold it together was duct tape, but I told her log cabins are supposed to be rustic so no one would care. She thought the woodgrain was cool, so she was quite happy with it. LOL I just hope it held together as her little brother carried it from the car to her classroom.

Very light eating day yesterday due to so much running around I had to do.
Food was skimpy on protein and I need it to be almost double what I ate yesterday.

Monday Report:
EDITED TO ADD TURKEY BURGER WITH HORSERADISH SAUCE THAT I FORGOT TO LOG

Calorie limit 1500 895
Net Carbs (carbs less fiber) limit 25g 23g
Fiber minimum 25g 40g
Dietary Cholesterol limit average 250mg 147mg
Saturated fat average 11% of total calories 12%
Protein average 120g 83g
Water 64 oz. YES
Exercise 5 times NO

I'm going to make myself an egg substitute spinach omelet and then exercise before I do anything else.

Wishing everyone a great day!
