Well, you all know the latest, so not much new to report. Except that yesterday, Mr. Handsome-and-Handy and Thing 2 went on her class field trip to a location on Tunitas Creek Rd. to watch Stage 3 of the Tour of California bike race! They collected banana slugs and drew pictures of trees while they waited, and then got to cheer for the 3 minutes it took for the bicyclists and cars to pass. I was a little jealous, but the official race video footage is really fantastic, and it was fun to see some of it going through our neck of the woods, literally!
Progress This Week
7-day blood glucose average: 98 (met goal of less than 120)
7-day fasting blood glucose average: 96 (met goal of less than 120)
Weight goals: No change from last Wednesday. I went up a little since Friday, though, which is a bummer, but I'm glad my jeans are at least fitting a little better than they were a couple of weeks ago. I do prefer them to fit the way they were fitting on Friday, though, so I'll continue to fight the good fight.
Food goals: I tracked every day. Theoretically, if it takes a calorie deficit of 3,500 calories to lose 1 pound, I should have at least had a little nudge down with being 1,273 under. Unless, of course, the food tracker way overestimates calories burned for physical activity, which is entirely possible.
Fiber: Averaged 37.5 grams/day.
Exercise goals: Didn't meet my goals this week. I missed BodyPump class (got there today, though); it was challenging fitting fitness with work and school activities lately.
