This week seemed so so busy……….and full of some milestones:
Caitie drove on I-95 alone for the first time. Her goalkeeper training is on Tuesdays at 4:30, and it’s a straight 20 miles south on I-95, and she’s been wanting to do it alone. It’s over by 6, so she’s home before dark, but not driving much in the worst traffic, so we let her try it………alone. It was the longest 34 minutes of my life, until she arrived and sent me a text. I’m so proud of her. Last night as we drove farther south to regular team practice she told me it was boring driving that far alone, and she’d rather have me to talk to………..love that girl………now if she would just pick up her room.
Adrienne’s arm is feeling a bit better and she was to practice last night, but the field lights were a problem, so she only got a little throwing in. She plans to play some this Saturday at a college scrimmage, one of the schools she is interested in is attending.
So………..yesterday Kevin returned to his Dr as a follow up to some neck pain he’d had last month and following the blood work he’d had done. He expected his cholesterol might be high, and his BP was slightly up, but what he heard really surprised him.
His blood sugar is high, my dear husband is a type 2 diabetic.
He arrived home after his meeting, a quick time for us to chat, eat some lunch and he had to get to work. We are both admittedly overweight and inactive. We have no excuse for this lifestyle choice……..we are educated and know it’s unhealthy, but honestly, it’s not until a doctor tells you that you will now have to be on meds and monitor your blood sugar level and either change your lifestyle or risk a myriad of other likely side affects as a result of not taking care of your self that it’s sets in…………..damn, we have to change!
Stay tuned for a healthier Anita and her family!
Amended: Kevin’s cholesterol is fine, and his BP is only slightly above the recommended 120/80.
Have no worries, we plan to exercise and eat right in an appropriate fashion. We aren’t in horrible shape, and we know all lifestyle changes take time to adapt too…….sort of like a new baby…ha ha!
