I’m still trying to watch what I eat and go for walks. I went five days last week but totally blew off Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So, back at it today. I still tried to eat pretty decent but no walk for three days.
I’m making my protein shake in the morning. Lots of vitamins, low carbs. Fruits, veggies and healthy protein for lunch. I did manage to lose a couple of pounds. My blood sugar has been running low so, I have started taking a little less insulin at night.
I can’t wait to go back to the doctor at the end of the month. Doing labs again, checking my kidneys. She will need to find me some other blood pressure medication since she took me off lisinopril, I can damage the kidneys. My BP has been high every time I check it and I’m having more headaches and I can feel swelling in my ankles and feet.
It’s hell growing old. Especially when you didn’t listen to anything anybody told you about health while growing up!
I happened upon this recipe (My Fitness Pal) that looks good and isn’t too terribly unhealthy. I need to try and find diabetic and kidney friendly recipes.
If anybody tries this recipe let me know how you liked it. 😀
Brighten up your day with these warm, ooey-gooey banana-nut doughnuts with cream cheese glaze! They’re soft, fluffy and the perfect match for your toasty cup of joe. This recipe prevents waste by making use of extra ripe bananas and keeps things on the light side by subbing in applesauce for oil.
Baked Banana Nut Donuts

* 1 large (50 grams) egg
