No Excuses

I didn't have much of an appetite yesterday so calories came in kinda low.  I have been taking a supplement to increase the strength of my nails and hair and it also has the side benefit of suppressing my appetite. I walk a tightrope though if I don't eat and my blood sugar takes a nose dive. I really need to be more diligent about testing. I can poke my belly every morning to do my insulin but I just can't seem to get in a routine with the meter testing. I do have a travel meter and home meter so I really have no excuse.

I don't have ANY excuses for not exercising either. I am my own freaking road block. I could sit here and analyze way I am making excuses but it isn't going to get me anywhere. I just need to get off my arse and make it happen. I can talk about it until I am blue in the face but it still won't get me out there. What am I waiting for? A gold sealed invitation??? I am stalled with my WL because I am not being active and that is all there is to it.

To end on a more positive note, yesterday, the President of our company came to see her/our new building. I thought one of the Directors or the Construction supervisor would show her around but I was the one who got to do it. It was a great experience seeing how proud she was of the building and to realize that 48 years ago she started in one classroom and now has 22 schools and a brand new, state of the art, new building for her California region schools. She was beaming and it was a great experience! She just turned 80 last Friday and still very active in the day to day business of running the organization and I believe to be the key to her longevity. Until next time...


  1. Hi! My name is Martha Jane and I blog over at toopuffyduffy.blogspot.com.

    I'm just wondering what supplement you are taking to strengthen your hair and nails? I looking for one!

    Thank you!

  2. Katie, now that I have some time on my hands (or should I say hand since I only have one good one now :). I really looked through your bog today. Impressive. Lots of valuable info I had missed on my flybys.

    That FitBit sounds very cool. Especially the no-armband and you can clip it on yioo9ur bra. That's the thing I hate most about my BodyMedia (made by same company as the BodyBugg). I have to explain this thing on my arm. :)

    I love that 80-year old president of your company is so active. Gives me hope for my old age.

  3. How very cool that YOU got to show the president around!!! Shows that the powers-that-be have confidence in you...and hey, you never know where this may take you. :)

  4. so cool that you got to show her around!

  5. How sweet that she's still involved! And you got to show her around! Awesome!

    Now, get up and get moving young lady! NOW!

  6. Hi! My comments might work today! LOL. Sounds so neat that you got to show the president around!
    I have an issue with being my own roadblock, too. It is hard to unblock yourself! Hang in there!

  7. Katie - I've been where you are with the lack of motivation and everything else. Just know you can get there. I started this journey myself 20 months ago (Yes, I'm still counting!) and I'm now down 100 lbs., off insulin, off diabetic and blood pressure medicine. I run 25 miles a week and love every minute of it. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

  8. Im with shelley.
    the world is your proverbial highprotein oyster :)

  9. I know how you feel...sometimes I can't seem to get myself motivated to workout even though I know it's the key to losing weight! But once you start, you'll love how you feel and keep at it!

  10. Thank you! I will definitely look into the Biotin! :) Have a great day!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
