Good News Charlie....

I got good news Wednesday and my Doctor was ecstatic. Last week I had my quarterly blood draw for my hA1c diabetes check.
The results are as follows:
                     May                 August
hA1c              6.9                  6.3    need to get it under 5.7
Cholesterol    186                 181      
Triglycerides  180                 170
Blood sugar   130                  118   
I'm still working to get my blood sugar under 100 but doing much better.  One year ago my hA1c was 8.3 and my blood sugar was 192. 

To celebrate I made a knock out dinner of roasted chicken, a Quinoa (pronounced keenwa) pilaf with, onions, red, orange, yellow peppers, garlic, baby Portabello mushrooms, cherub tomatoes, almonds and chicken stock. A tomato salad that had diced cherub tomatoes, fresh basil, diced avocado, chopped green onions, roasted on the charcoal corn cut off the cob, salt, pepper, lime juice, olive oil and feta cheese. I was really surprised as to how good everything was as there were no recipes involved.

I'm in training to walk a mile course next weekend.  My daughter is running a 5K. A year ago I could not have done that.  Today I walked a 1.5 mile in 30 minutes.  It's been awhile since I've done that and it felt good.

Happy trails...
