Summer is approaching and I finished grad school which I thought would mean time to dive head first into writing. However, right around the time of my graduation I went to my doctor and my blood work came back as pre-diabetic. When I got the results I was confused, upset, and just didn't know where to begin. I eat healthy and exercise 4-6 times a week. I don't drink soda, and most of the food I make at home is homemade. I didn't really share the information because I have been a little embarrassed about it. I probably shouldn't be, but I am. I wasn't sure about that doctor's opinion in addition to not liking how the doctor handled the results I went to my primary doctor. She talked to me, and unlike the other doctor didn't seem bothered to explain the blood work then what the game plan would be if they came back positive. She's amazing.
Thankfully I have a supportive boyfriend who lives off mt. dew and pizza just said we'll do what we have to, to get the levels lower. Now I'm not very elevated so I am staying positive that it will be reversed before I get an actual diagnosis of diabetes. I've been reading, changing my eating habits, and changed my exercise routine. Since my doctor appointment which was May 26 I've lost about 3lbs. I know that doesn't sound like much, but I've been wanting to lose weight for the last few months. Getting this diagnosis was that final nail, "I really need to do it". The 3lbs make me giddy and I hope there's more to come, well lose?
Sorry I really feel awkward sharing real personal information like that so thank you for making it this far on my post. Last night I dove into editing my pirate story that I started back in high school and have since then refurbished. I don't know why picking an old story and editing it helps me get back into the grove of things. However, based off going the first chapter this might be the last time I go through it before I have a beta reader go through it. It reads as if I've gone through it many of times...I know the first part is ready, but we'll see about part two when I get there. Then on top of that I've been doing a few notes on Beneath the Scars 2 and Mistakes #5! Now to get through my nightly exercise so that I can do a little writing before bed!
