It's amazing how quickly time flies. I cannot believe it's been 2 weeks since I last posted. I feel like I'm in confessional.....
Anyway, I had a mammogram done - clear. I had an EKG - clear. I had a bunch of blood work done - cholesterol's a little high, iron a little low, but best news - fasting blood sugar was only 5.2. For years, it's been 6.2. I don't know how or why this has changed, but I'm glad ... I think. Given the drops in blood sugar I've had lately, I kinda question why it's dropped so much. But, as my mother always told me, don't look a gift horse in the mouth. So, for the time being I'll enjoy the good health and look forward to even better health in the future.
It's kinda odd being the only one in my immediately family who doesn't have diabetes. Not that I want it. Hell no. And I'm still younger than everyone else (except mom) when it was discovered. But just because my family had/has it, doesn't mean I have to follow in their footsteps. This is one way being the black sheep of the family is a REALLY good thing.
My biggest challenge seems to be allergies and allergy induced asthma. It's been exciting, especially with all this rain. But at least we're not in Manitoba.
I'm back to my workouts, I've planned my meals for the week and I'm determined to stick with the plan, but ensure that I actually eat enough, at regular intervals, drink lots of water and keep a positive attitude.
To your good health.
