My New Focus to Manage Diabetes

I have 15 pics in my gallery


November 2014

New focus:
1. Choosing foods that do not raise my blood sugar.
2. Choosing a workout video when it's too dark to walk
3. Choosing not to give up.

Thanks fr the goodie and the blog support! I am so addicted to running, I guess it could be something worse, right? I'm going to wrap up the year middle of November and try to rest up some!! I literally have been training for a full year almost! I'm got a full in 2 1/2 weeks, and 2 more halves after it.

I haven't been on Spark much lately. I can't get on internet on work computer. I am planning on retiring January or February. I will be doing more of my fusion glass jewelry, wire wrapping and stained glass to sell at craft fairs and friends. We also plan on traveling in the Spring.

Are you on facebook at all? Let me know and I will pm my info over there. I can access that on my phone even from work.

Looks like you are making progress on your weight. Congrats!!

Thanks!! Hubby has lost about 50 lbs, he'd like to lose another 20-30 and he'd like to start walking and get his BP under control too! emoticon
