You Tube Tuesday #88

Every Tuesday I like to take a break from diabetes and share a video clip that I think is either funny, interesting, strange, or in some way entertaining.

The clip for today falls into all of those catagories.

My Aunt used to love Magnum P.I. and after seeing this clip I can understand.


BTW - Did you read Kerri's blog post today? She made a little announcement about Yours Truly. :)


I Can't Has Cheezeburgerz

A vital part of my diabetes management has been neglected for the past month or so. I didn’t really think about until Saturday morning.

Since my kids have been back at school and my wife has also returned to school, I have found that I have no time to play racquetball or disc golf. Those are the two ways that I, in my very small way, actually exercised. Disc golf is not rigorous at all but does lend for a good long walk which at a few times a week is a lot better then what I have been doing which is nothing.

Racquetball on the other hand is pretty much high level exercise for about an hour that typically knocks me out! I love it and miss it but to find an hour of time to spend on playing a game is next to impossible right now.

This Saturday I was able to get in half a round of Disc Golf since we had a soccer game and a convention we had to be at. In that half course, essentially 9 holes, I was wiped out. I huffed and puffed up and down the hills at La Mirada Regional Park for the short game we played. One thing I will say was it was a good half round for me even if I sounded like a panting dog the entire time.

The other topic that I have avoided is my desertion of Weight Watchers. Since my ATM card was stolen and cancelled I just let the membership cancel and grabbed a cheeseburger. I can feel myself inflating and with that, not caring at all.

Life is squeezing me in and my expanding waist line is not helping at all.

I am confident I will get my act together sometime soon but for now I will try to get in a little exercise here and there.

And hopefully stay away from the cheeseburgers.


It's Saturday and I'm Vlogging!

So here it is! I hope you enjoy it.

It has extra dorkiness!


Let's Vlog About It

No, I have not recorded my vlog for this week yet. I will not be able to do it tonight either. I plan on recording tomorrow while the sun is out so I can open the blinds and make Scott happy.

What I do need is something to talk about. I have some ideas but I really enjoyed just answering your questions.

So comment and ask me a question or something you want to know about yours truly.

I would even be willing to do like a "Dear Ninjabetic," type vlog. You can ask for my wisdom or lack there of. LOL

Thanks and come back on Saturday to check out the vlog.


I Cannot Stop

I cannot stop.

With kids in soccer, band, choir, and track I cannot stop. They have to get to where they need to be and it is my responsibility to get them there. Dinner is a must as well as making sure homework gets done and is understood.

With the economy the way that it is and the financial woes we are facing in our home I have to get up each day and work my tail off. I am not sure I am happy with my job. I guess I feel that it is just a job and not a career. But they pay me well and most of the people I work with are great. I am blessed to have the job that I do with the small amount of education I have.

With my commitment to church and VDC I get to praise God through music. My church has me on staff and pays me to lead the worship band. I would do this without pay in a heartbeat but my church knows that when you have a paycheck, you are more likely to be treated differently and treat your job differently. I see it as a ministry but still one that I cannot stop and rest from. It takes time to come up with music, learn music, teach music, and then be prepared to play that music come Sunday.

I cannot stop.

With my diabetes I check my blood, go to the doctors, attempt to exercise, and keep my disease on my mind. It’s why I write here and on dLife. It keeps me reading. It keeps me in the know and it keeps me thinking about my health by reading about all the others in the online diabetes community.

At times I want to quit it all. I just want to stay in bed and not drive the kids to school. I dream about driving right past my exit at work and continuing off to who knows where forgetting about everything. My wish is to not have to think about diabetes. To never worry about what I eat or what this disease has planned for me in the future.

I want to stop.

I cannot.
