I had a my quarterly doctor’s appointment with my endocronologist yesterday – it went great! I had my blood work done and in a couple weeks I’ll know what my A1C is – anything under 7 is considered a controlled diabetic – I am shooting for 6! 😀 My doctor was especially happy with my blood sugar numbers!
I know my friend Nicole would be especially proud of that average – and Gina and Melinda too! 😀 But I had to step on the scale at the doctor’s office, something I haven’t done at home in a while! It was at the end of the day, with all my clothes on, so I decided to weigh in at home this morning and face the music.
In my conversation with my doctor, he casually mentions that someone my height should weigh between 120 and 130. But then he said “let’s just shoot for 10 pounds in three months – can you do that for me?” My next doctor appointment is May 12 – so game on! It’s kind of funny really, because I can be the best cheerleader when I comment on people’s blogs if they are in a funk, the weight isn’t coming off quickly – I think its time to take my own advice – make every day the best it can be – and the string as many of those days together as I can! 😀 (Pep talks would be appreciated!) 😀
And I also showed my doctor my calorie count food log, and he said that I eat too many carbs – one thing Tony has told me forever – so for all the world to hear “you were right Tony!” 😀 He wants me to eat between 110 and 150 carbs a day.
Breakfast was almost a repeat of yesterday – the banana/peanut butter side actually ended up being my fuel for my45 minute walk before lunch – worked out perfect!
I didn’t think we would get our walk in, but it worked out in the end. We did our 45 minute walk in 30 degree weather – so refreshing! We came back to soup and sammies! I brought my BSI celery root/potato soup and we had a ham/cheese sammie on the side in a double fiber English muffin.
My co-worker said “the soup is good, but the topping brings it over the top! This one is a keeper!” Thanks Renee! 😀
So since my doctor appointment was after work, Tony made a beef roast – slow and low in the oven – he put it in at 4:30 and when I got home at 5:45 it was done and ready to rest. He did baked potatoes on the side, and I made a quick side dish of sauteed asparagus – I bring water to a boil – just about an inch, and cook the asparagus for 5 minutes. Then I drain the water, add 1 tsp. of butter, lemon zest and fresh Parmesan cheese – ready in about 7 minutes! 😀
We usually take our meat out at 125 so that by the time it rests and is ready to cut, it is medium rare.
Stats for Wednesday: 45 minute walk at lunch
Oh – and I won the lottery! Okay, not the big one, but I’ll take $20!
Gotta jump in the shower – I am going to make today a great day – whose with me?! 😀
