Whole lotta nothing!

I've been off work for the last two days. A nice break and so far I've done a whole lot of nothing!

 Had an appointment for my 6 month diabetic checkup yesterday. My HGA1C is down to 5.4. In case you don't know HGA1C is a measurement of how my  blood sugar has been running for 3 months. To compare: when I was first diagnosed with diabetes my HGA1C was 14. Before I started this wheat free diet it was 6.3. Much better but my goal was to get it down below 6.0. Now it's in the normal range.I still have to take my medication and diet and exercise because there is no cure for diabetes, but having it be in the normal range means it is completely under control like a person without diabetes.

 Plus 25 pounds down! And I can wear all the clothes in my closet..and some of them are getting too big now!

 OK enough bragging for one post!

 We're still checking out wedding venues. I think we found a place that is nice and pretty reasonably priced. I'll post the details if Shauna and Brad decide to book their wedding there. I'm anxious to get going on the rest of the planning!

 Well, I can't have a post without at least one picture so here's Zoe

She's the cat who hates all the other cats! You can tell by her pissed off  look that one of the other cats must have been close by! She spends the majority of her time upstairs in our bedroom. And she's the only cat that we let sleep in our room with us at night. One because she doesn't bother us and two because if we didn't she'd never get any attention from us! Poor baby.

 Until the next time....

Girl, you are doing so good! I'm proud of you getting all healthy. Well, I don't blame you either for doin' a whole lot of nothing. You probably needed the rest.

That's a cute little kitty. Have I ever told you I'm allergic to cats? Yep. All my life. I'm also allergic to Hopper Henry. Okay, I'm joking about him. :)

Have a good weekend.

YAY for your A1C. That is great. I get mine checked the end of October. I hope mine is as good as yours. :)

Congrats on the good blood work numbers and your weight loss! And your kitty sure does look like she has an attitude!
