Weekly update, 3/24/09

Progress last week

7-day blood glucose average: 99 (met goal of less than 120)
7-day fasting average: 101 (met goal of less than 120, 100% of days)
Weight goal: +2.8 lbs (ACK! Nope, NOT due to any particular times of the month. Simply overdid, especially over the weekend; it caught up with me due to scaled-back workouts.)
Food goals: Consumed 4 meatless, low-fat meals and 2 fish meals. (met meatless & fish meal goals)
Exercise goals: Did great until Wednesday, when I upped my weights in BodyPump class and hurt my back. I got in one run and one class (plus 20 minutes on recumbent bike) before; walked at least 20 minutes/day after (4 days).
Misc. goals: Got adequate sleep all nights. Researched dietary fiber recommendations for improving LDL. "See Jane Tri" registration on hold, due to technical difficulties; will try when they post the PDF form on their web site.
