Taking control back

Some days I really feel like a miserable failure at controlling my diabetes! Being sick the last few weeks with a bad infection and having to go on antibiotics, steroids and anti-inflammatories have really taken a toll on my blood sugar. Before all this, I was starting to get some control back. I was doing good enough that I was down to 10 units of long-acting insulin at night after starting Glumetza. I was told at that point that if I could get down to 10 units and maintain an A1C within range of 5.6 to 6 then I could come off the insulin altogether and I did it! [...]  READ MORE

TBH – Prompt #2 – Kandahar, Afghanistan

What is the most dangerous place you’ve ever been to and why did you go?

I’m a little late on the second prompt for The BloggerHop. I set the prompts to post on Sundays but I have had a busy start to the week. So here is the second prompt for Sunday, April 28, 2019. If you would like to learn more about The BloggerHop you can get more information here.

This is actually copied from 2 previous posts that I did years ago as I could not re-write it any better then I did the first time. In a way I know that probably shouldn’t count but my memory is not good enough to re-write it again. I did add some pictures to the bottom of the post from when I was there. [...]  READ MORE

Spring Is In The Air!

Edward and I spent the day out today… well yesterday technically since it’s 2:30 AM. We both took a long weekend this weekend because I had a lieu day that I wanted to take and I decided I didn’t feel like working Sunday so I took the day off and he ended doing the same. We went for a walk for almost an hour in Point Pleasant Park which is a large park in the south end of Halifax by the port. The view from it is beautiful, a view of the mouth of the Halifax harbour which is one of the worlds deepest natural harbours. The second I think (maybe the first?).

I took a few pictures with my phone but unfortunately they didn’t turn out to well so I didn’t bother uploading them. We walked for 58 minutes and walked 3.30 km. We were just walking really slow and stopping to admire the view and take pictures which is why we didn’t go very far distance wise. It worked out to 5981 steps and 288 calories burned. In total I actually managed to get 10,154 steps in. I have my goal right now set to 7500 steps, need to work my way up to 10,000 and beyond. I am really proud of myself I have met my goal every day this week.

It was a beautiful day out and reached 19°C and was nice and sunny. Maybe a bit of a cool wind down around the harbour but it was still nice enough I only had on a t-shirt and capris. I am so happy that spring is here. Now all we need to do is try and get our all season tires back on. We put it off because it really seemed like winter was never going to end. We had 4 storms over 10 days just the beginning of this month. Tomorrow (today technically) is supposed to rain like 20m but still get to 14°C, then Sunday is supposed to rain 5-10mm in the morning, clear up for a cloudy but 17°C afternoon. I am hoping to get Edward out driving. He is working on getting his license, he finally has his learners. [...]  READ MORE
