Woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning. They are predicting anywhere from 2” to 7”, depending on which TV or radio station I happen to be listening to. But then how many times are they right? Guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
Have been doing very well with my sugar testing. I’ve lost weight and my daily sugar count is getting closer and closer to target. I’m bound and determined to control it with diet and exercise. Two days ago it was at 113, but then yesterday morning it was at 139, which isn’t too awfully bad, I don’t think. And then this morning it was at 127. I won’t be satisfied until it’s constantly at 100 or below. But the important thing is that I know I can control it and the second benefit is the weight loss. I am now down to a size 40 waist and even though it’s only a drop from 42, it’s a major accomplishment for me. I still have one pair of slacks that are 38 and I’m hoping that by next week, I’ll be able to fit into them without having to struggle. Dieting isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I quite smoking cold turkey, so I know I can stop eating just as easily. Well, I don’t mean stop eating all together, just reducing the portion size and content. I’m also taking additional fiber, which helps.
Christmas is right around the corner and I got my decorations up. Just seems that Christmas doesn’t have the same importance anymore. Both parents are gone and the brothers who are left are all off in other states doing their own thing, so it’s just me and Jerónimo and we don’t even exchange gifts anymore. We used to, but we both have everything we need, so we’re going out today to get ourselves some new colognes. We both have a passion for men’s colognes. We only have about 25 different ones already. Hey, some people collect other things, we collect colognes.
Well, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New year.
