I just called my doctor's office and talked to my diabetes educator. I had some blood work done 3 weeks ago. The office called and told me the blood work was amazingly good. I was expecting a follow up letter from my dr, like I usually do, and never got it. So, I called today to find out exactly what my Aic was. The last one was 7.3, the new one is 6.8!! I'm so excited about this. Not so very long ago, I was at 10.6 and had to go on insulin. I now take two insulins and am happy with the results. I'm exercising more by taking Karate. I also moved into an apt and have a bit of a walk from my apt to my car in the parking lot. I make sure I park further away from the store when I go shopping. Today, I started walking around the courtyard. I have a nice courtyard in my apt complex and it has a walkway around it. So, this morning, I got out and walked it three times. I'm going to walk it again this evening. My plan is to walk it at least once every day. I can already tell the difference in the strength in my legs from the Karate alone! 2009 is going to be a much better year for me. I think I'm going to have to buy a whole new wardrobe this summer!!!
