Recital, Again

Amanda played in the recital at ESU on Thursday. With all that's been going on, I'm not sure if she really had her heart in it. She played one of Mozart's sonatas, as well as three of Bartok's Rumanian folk dances.

She did make mistakes in the Mozart piece, but overall did very well. Playing Mozart in a concert hall is difficult, or so I've been told by the pianists in the recital.

Long Time, No See

I can't believe it's been over two weeks since I blogged last. During that time, I lost more weight (doesn't reflect on my ticker yet), and was diagnosed diabetic. Okay, I was expecting to be diagnosed, only because my test numbers weren't that great last time. My doctor said if they go any higher or stay the same, he would put me on meds. So now I'm on metformin and zocor for cholesterol, and I test my BG three times a day. My fasting test seems to be the one I'm having trouble with, as it's usually in the 170-180 range every morning. I don't get it, because I'm not eating anything that should cause it to rise so much.

The great news is I'm walking. A lot!!!! I've been doing the WATP series, as well as other walks by Leslie Sansone. I have to say she is great and such a motivator. She is truly a blessing for those of us who follow her walking program.

I love watching those miles add up on my ticker 8-)
