I have been a diabetic for over 12 years now but have never really altered my life the way I should. I am starting this blog as a way to try and hold myself accountable. I know that this blog may not be of any interest to the majority but if you should take the time to read it please leave a comment with an encouraging word or a kick up the bum depending on the need at the time.

Saturday 28th May 2011

Firstly apologies for the delay since my last post.  I have been on a very intensive course for work for the past two weeks and what with working five days a week for the first time in over 18 months and 4 hours travelling a day I haven't had a spare minute to update the blog.

I haven't been testing everyday but I have been testing more than I was before I started this blog.  I definitely haven't been eating healthily in fact I've been eating much more junk but to be honest I just need to get through this course before I can put myself 100% behind the healthy eating etc.

One good thing is that I got a letter from my consultant following my last diabetic appointment and the blood they took then showed a HbA1C of 8.8% which is a really good improvement on the 9.9% it was last time.  It is still my aim to reduce it again before my next appointment but things are going in the right direction.

I am off work next week, but have quite a bit of studying I want to do during that time.  I also have a lot of house work to catch up on but I am going to try and go for a walk everyday as I have been doing more walking than usual to get to where I go for my course so I think this wouild be a good goal to set this week.  I aim to walk for at least 30 minutes each day.

Fantastic that you are back blogging again, its good that your result is improving.

I have been walking more too, I hope the weather behaves itself for the next week and you can walk in the sunshine. However the good thing about walking in the rain is it makes you go quicker so your burn more calories!
