Remember how I had made it a goal of mine to have my blood draw done THREE WEEKS IN A ROW?
Yeah, I remember!
It was embarrassing, not being able to meet that goal three weeks running. When I put the goal on my Thursday list this last time I said to myself, “Enough! This is getting done!!!”
I like exclamation points!!!!!
I also like being able to report I’ve met all my goals!!!!!
Best of all, I like the results I got back from my most recent blood testing:
These results are such a relief to me, and proof positive that eating right and exercising, even the tiniest bit (15-30 minutes each day), can make a big difference in your numbers.
The best feeling of all is that feeling I got when I did something I did not want to do because it was beneficial for me to do it.
No, wait, I lie.
The best feeling was seeing an A1c number within a normal range without diabetic meds!!!!!
My BUN number on the report showed a tad bit elevated, so I’m trying to figure out what I need to do to tweak my diet and get that number down next time. Any suggestions, send ’em over. That number could have been a result of dehydration, since I was about 13 hours out from my most recent meal and drinking, but I’m not banking on that. In the weeks to follow I will be cutting more protein out of my diet. I’m hoping the nuts I’m eating is not contributing to this number, because I love my nuts, but I know there is a lot of work I could do to cut out animal proteins in my diet. I’ll start there and see how it goes.
So glad to have crushed this goal this week! Now, onward and upward to those other two. I’ve got to report in three short days. I want to do better with my teeny, tiny goals this week!!!!!
What goals have you set for yourself this week? How’s it going?
