    Last month (Mar 20) I got some "hard" health news,
    it was abit scary and I kinda lost heart for a little while.
    However, I am back at it and am in for the long haul.

    I have been diagnosed with stage 1 diabetic kidney disease.
    I want to KEEP it at stage one if I can.

    I have been able to incorporate several new habits this last
    few weeks and need to keep up with them. I got rid of a lot
    of my "activities" so I can have time to properly take care
    of myself, which has never been a high priority for me.

    My goals for this month:
    Sleep:
    Get up no later than 9, goal is 7am-8am.
    7-8 hours sleep nightly lights off no later than 12pm
    Currently I have stopped all sleep pills (2)

    Food and eating:
    Eat at 9am, 1pm, 5pm, and 9pm daily
    3 servings of carbs per meal (45 grams), 1 g of carbs {15) with protein night snack
    3 Fruits, 3 Vegetables, 1 Yogurt daily
    Water: 64 oz (using no caffeine, no sodium Crystal light to make palatable)
    No caffeine except the probiotic in chocolate that I take daily

    Exercise:
    Exercise at 11am
    Walk on treadmill 15 min 2 mph and do strength exercises at least 3 times per week
    (ball crunches, wall pushups, and lying hamstring ball lifts)

    Weight:
    Lose 1 pound per week, not a high priority, BS is #1

    Vitamins and meds:
    Take 2 long acting insulin shots per day and 3 short acting before meal shots per day
    Take multi, chromium, CoQ10, fenugreek, calcium chews, B12, joint juice, omega3's, alpha lipotic acid daily
    Continue present med regime (down 6 pills per day)

    Health maintence pratices:
    Take BS' before each meal, 2 hrs post dinner and bedtime
    Air purifier on daily
    Filter water
