Yay - I win a prize.........a good A1C!

I received my test results today. As I mentioned before, my last test result was 7.5 and I wanted to be under 7 this time. My result is 6.9. Yippee for me! I really am happy about that. All my other levels are good too. Whew...I am healthy for now! LOL

I have been trying to do those desk exercises here at work. Everytime I start to do something like stretch or ANYTHING.....someone walks in. So....I have resorted to butt crunches. I can do them just sitting here. I just tighten up my butt muscles and then let them loose. LOL I really don't want anyone to see me but if someone walks in, it is discreet enough that they can't tell what I am doing........but I do stop! I work around mostly older men so they would get a kick out of that, I'm sure!

This weekend is my daughter's birthday. She will be 19! Her last year as a teenager. We made it! We will be celebrating at my sister-in-law's house with the works. Ya know, all that stuff we shouldn't eat but do anyways.....cake, ice cream, junk food. I will have the cut up vegies and dip though - I do like some of the healthy stuff! And then Monday night we go out to eat at a place called Hoggy's....nice, huh? If I just keep my insulin doses straight, I shouldn't have any problems.

Diabetes Can't stop me.

Things have been pretty uneventful so not much to post about. And.....I have a ton files to put away here at work so I better get busy.

Terrific news, Laura!

Well done!

Enjoy your daughter's birthday party this weekend-- and yes, making it through those teenage years is yet another reason to celebrate!

Hey, we could be A1c twins...mine was also 6.9 at my last visit.

Keep up the good work :)

Congrats on the A1C! That's really cool. I've never been under 7. Maybe on the next one!

Happy Birthday to your daughter. As my dad said, "One more year of excuses!" :-)

Laura said...

Thanks everyone! And the "one more year of excuses" comment - LOL, I can relate!!!

Happy Birthday to your daughter and Happy A1c to you! You are doing a great job. And I'm glad you're back to updating your blog with such regularity. I enjoy stopping by and hearing your unique voice.

I hit under 7% after I went on the pump and celebrated by having a huge dinner and dessert night. Thus rendering my A1c out of the 7% range again ... maybe next time I'll treat myself to a visit at the aquarium...
