you are a positive inspiration, DJ~! good on you,, and those flowers are just beautiful~!

it takes weeks to get things done around here,,, it can take the mail 6 days to go 300 miles~ O.O then the recordings have to be analysed,,, the agency who is handling all this is so busy it takes them 3 days to return a phone call....
a friend who also has a CPAP told me how to adjust the pressure settings myself, but if i do that before i have the machine tested, and i break it, or blow up my lungs,,,, well, i hesitate....

i too have been moving around,, i cleaned the stove~! omg, some parts hadn't been cleaned in ages, i won't say years, cause i'm embarrassed~ but there is a lot of bending and stooping involved, which i always try to avoid. anyway, i'm not done yet, and not very sore this morning, which is quite a surprise. maybe this energy will last long enough for me to vacuum...

You have no idea how much I love this.

We have stray cats in the neighborhood, and we finally caught one to keep inside after several weeks of feeding. In the meantime, the other cat is too feral to get near, but it comes around mewing in a deep voice to demand food through the sliding glass door.

We have discovered that cats aren’t the only thing getting the cat food. Oh my gosh raccoons are adorable. I know you aren’t supposed to feed them. I guess between the cat food and the bird seed, they’ve been chowing in my back yard.

Hi all,

My pdoc sent me to my regular doc to get back on track. My meds caused me to gain about 20 pounds and pushed my A1c up again. I have to look, I think I’m pushing 7 on the A1c. It used to be much lower and much higher.

I have a doc that is well known in the paleophere that put me on low carb in 2003. I lost a lot of weight—about 70 pounds slowly over several years. I never lost more than 15-20 pounds in any one year on his low carb Paleo diet. I got my A1c from 9.3 to 5.7 or so. Now I’ve gone backwards.

Darn meds.

Anyway, there is nothing to respond to here. I’m just saying hi and reading for some inspiration to get back on track.

Have to say that I fully expect and deserve a rise in my levels when I see the doc next week. It just wont be in the 5's range. Struggling with other medical stuff right now..... hmmm.

Pleased that you got another walk in Deejay. I have tried using a walker but find that my feet kick against the wheels so it's not very practical. Kudos to you Gus for cleaning the oven. That is a moo cow of a job. The owners installed a brand new oven here recently and I am to scared to use it much because if it gets dirty it will need cleaning and I can't reach all the way inside because it is up too high.

I am trying to decide if I go for a walk this afternoon or rake up the leaves from the fruit trees. I wish that the trees would do one massive dump of the leaves so it wouldn't seem like a job that lasts for months.

Got some corn kernels for salad yesterday yay.

Seroquel is not good for sugar levels but can't live without it. Hope you can find some motivation Keytones.

Another beautifu! day! I got out for my "walk". If it doesn't rain tomorrow I will be e walked the whole street up and back. Just under a 1/4 mile. Without bragging I am very proud of myse!f. It's a challenge on the walker- very tough on my shoulders. Got all my strengthening in today as well as went through my summer clothes to donate and trash. I am pooped right now!! God is good guys!!! Thanks for being here to keep me accountable and honest. Keep in moving around guys! Every little bit helps (I hope!).

you are right about that oven cleaning stuff, DJ~! i spoke too soon about not being very sore,,, i kept working on it, and tried to use it too soon, and smoked up the house and maybe scorched the oven door~! O.O i didn't even know that was possible,,,, so now i'm soaking the broiler pans, which took most of the baked on crud... and and barely get up to sit down on the pot...

hahahaha,,, will keep trying to keep moving... i'm beginning to think that i had a serious vitamin D deficiency which was contributing to my poor health~! anyway, that is the only major thing which has changed in my diet (since salads), and i'm feeling much better~ {good doc, nice doc}

here's something odd, maybe someone can comment ??
i tested before going to bed last nite, bsl= 118; tested when i got up this morning, bsl=167~!! waaaaaaat's going on with that ? i know 30 units increase from the liver dump is not unusual, but 50 points ?? wow,, not happy i can tell you~!

(((Gus))) i only take januvia (nightly), not insulin. So i really just look at even my daily readings as trends, esp my morning reading. It tends to stay fairly consistent per my weight (+ or -10 lbs) and my exercise.

Gus,
I have a self cleaning oven and although the oven doesn't need it yet, I am scared to try it out! Don't know why...just maybe scares me a little because it's gas.

Good on you Deejay for getting into the swing of the exercise thing. Getting out of the house seems to be beneficial psychologically too as it takes the focus from what's inside our head to another place.

Yesterday the garden won and the leaves got raked from under the fruit trees and the driveway also had a sweep. Pesky starlings seem intent on tossing the leaves everywhere in the pursuit of getting the bugs for a feed.

Hope the smoke in your house has cleared. Kudos to you Gus for doing some spring cleaning too. I don't know what's up with those reading Gus. Maybe you can ask the good doctor a question or five about it.

Gus - I’ve noticed that happens to me the morning after a day where I eat more than I usually do, even if it was only meat and eggs/all low carb that doesn’t raise blood sugar.
