Since starting with SP in July 2012, I've brought my blood sugar and blood pressure down dramatically, with both numbers being in the healthy range now. I am exercising 6 times a week, for 45-90 minutes at a time. I am eating well for the most part, but really need to get better control of night snacking. I am finally sleeping well. I am feeling better and more hopeful than I have in a long time.

Awwk thank you for your comment on my other blog! I love being in touch with my Azure friends--I may be wearing army boots this round instead of sandals, but Azure are still my friends. I had hoped to be around more on the island, but ... life kind of blew up on me. Plus lack of internet was a problem.

Thanks for your encouragement on my goals! And yeah, relaxation is REALLY HIGH on my list for the next couple of weeks. I still have obligations (don't I always? LOL) but... I will find time to read. And craft. I just got a spinning wheel--I want to learn how to use it! And I'm learning bobbin lace, which is a ton of fun. So.. yeah. Relax and make things and read and hang out with friends and read and sleep... I miss sleep....

Thanks for commenting on my Silver Linings (1) blog, I don't feel fit or inspiring most of the time, I am just in a constant competition with myself to be better than I am now.

Have a great day
