Up and attum

Can you smell it? Pancetta and asparagus in the pan. Working on my sugar demon today.

I slept 3 hours, got up, and then was able to sleep another 4ish. Not bad.

I have a bunch of prep cooking to do today before I work. This follows my shopping trip for good foods and lower sugar intake quest.

And why did Abbey want me up at 7 a.m.? Grumble :)

Three weeks, five days, 10 hours, 43 minutes and 25 seconds - 396 stinky cigarettes not smoked, saving $89.26. Taking my life back and have saved: 1 day, 9 hours, 0 minutes. Quit date January 28, 2016 at 10 p.m.

Cancer Schmancer

I've had a couple followup cystoscopies and both were clear of cancer, but still the bladder is home to irritated, inflamed material from the mitomycin allergy. I'll report on the next one in a few months.

What also hasn't changed is sleep. Since the allergy blowup, I haven't slept all that well. Most nights, I sleep three hours at a time, which is an improvement over the 15 minutes at a time, but I'm still tired in the middle of the day. I went to bed at 9 p.m. yesterday after getting up at 7 a.m. and having a couple-hour nap during the day. I was up around midnight and then 3:30. I sure would like to sleep all night again some day!

As I continue to age, little things are happening in my body that equate to age, as in arthritis. I'm going to PT now to determine how best to exercise at the pool to keep the back going. This is a good thing!

Anyway, just an update, specifically about the bladder and sleep. I still haven't made any firm decisions as to what I'm going to do as I don't have an "end" yet. More to come.

Focus on diabetes

Cancer - healed. Exercise - back at it for 3 weeks. Smoking - quit. Joints - aging bitches. Focus - diabetes.
