Fasting, Fasting, Fasting

  • We had company all weekend, and yesterday I made yummy feta cheese burgers with chopped up tomatoes, chopped green onion, worcestershire sauce and oat meal in them. Oh and sides of salad, cheesy potatoes and watermelon. 
  • My supper consisted of couscous, tofu, plain lettuce and watermelon.
  • Last week I learned that I have high cholesterol and my blood sugar is elevated.
  • I have to go in today to get more blood work done. 
  • Summer school is going on until the end of the week, so I wanted to get this lab testing rolling. My appointment isn't until 3:45 today-after class. I had to fast for 12 hours. Most people test in the morning.
  • I stayed up late last night, and had an additional meal of couscous, tofu, plain cucumber and grapes. This might be my new life because I need to start taking better care of myself. 
  • My cholesterol isn't too incredibly high. It's 206. I have a family history of high cholesterol, over weight family members and diabetes. I told my doctor that I want to lose weight, so that is the path I'm on.
  • I have to say that I've never been too bad with food. I could be better. I make great baked things in the kitchen that I, or Daddy take to work. I don't devour them myself. 
  • At this present moment in time I could eat a horse, and it's lunch time for most everyone, but me.
  • I'm walking more during lunch time at work. It's a start, but I need to exercise more, a lot more.

  • I just weaned Isaak all the way from nursing. He's a boob man. He turned 2 in May. I wanted him to self wean, but I'd get him down to one a day. Somehow we'd go backwards, and he'd be nursing all the time again.
  • I had to cut him off. He was horrible the first few days, crying and asking for it. He hasn't asked for it all weekend! I cried the first few days too, just not as bad as him. :( My emotions were crazy finding out all this medical stuff, and weaning at the same time. I read that if you wean cold turkey it's worse then weaning slow emotion wise. This is so true. If only I could of gotten Isaak to wean slow!

  • Daddy found a mole that has changed on his leg. It's a red one, and has spider like pattern spreading from it. A hard core under it. 
  • This too is scary, and he's getting it look at. He's supposed to call today to make an appointment.
