Stay warm and be careful Tamagno and Grammabear.

12,011 steps yesterday. Last evening as I was doing laps in the kitchen, it dawned on me why I am getting so many more steps each day. There is no more  ~ cat ~ in lap time... :'(

7866 steps yesterday.  I didn't quite get to 8 K but close.  I start walking about 6 AM and try to get at least 500 steps each hour for the next 12 hours.  I have been pretty good at hitting that goal lately but it takes more to get close to 10 K.

89 this morning.  Weather here is pretty consistent right now and quite nice, especially for winter.  I do feel for you that are dealing with freezing conditions. 
They are expecting temps in the 80 degree range in the Los Angeles area this week end. ! 
Grammabear, sorry you had such a bad experience with the eye doctor.  I had a bad experience with an eye doctor a few years ago and never went back.  I am lucky to have found a very good and competent eye doctor and I really don't mind going once a year for an exam.

85 this morning.

Expecting another snow/freezing rain storm today.  Weather lady wasn't sure about the 'track' of the storm so also not sure whether we get snow or ice.  Would rather NOT have either one.

Be careful, Tamagno, on your trip to the grocery store that you are not over run with the crowds of people also "stocking up".

260 this morning.

Frigid here, still. Somehow, seems to be contributing to wild glucose swings that just throws me off every which way.

Got to get myself in gear and get to the grocery before it’s too late...

12,736 steps yesterday.

I start walking around 9AM, it used to be 10:30 or 11AM. I do anywhere from 500 to over 1,000 steps an hour. I don’t go to bed until 1 or 2AM so get a start on the next day then.

115 this foggy morning, 103 at bedtime last night.

Weather is very mild here, it’s 38°F right now, overnight low predicted 18°. Very light snow, just a few flakes a few times this afternoon. May be more this evening according to my weather app. No sun since last Friday...

102 this morning.  Here it is going to be a very windy day and a drop in temp of about 10 degrees but still quite warm compared to a lot of you.  Stay inside and stay warm if you can.  Grammabear, I don't envy you having to go out on a day like this.

Wally ~ I wish I had not even gone to this eye doctor appt.  If you enjoy loud music in the waiting room and assembly line medicine, then this is the place for you.  I could not even hear myself think in their waiting room, much less hear the clerk when she called my name.  By the time I went back to the exam room, where the clerk did the actual exam, my blood sugar went from 133 to 198.  Of course the doctor herself jumped all over me for having diabetes that was out of control.  She said my poor vision is due to my high blood sugar and the scar tissue she found on the front of my eyes.  I know for sure I will never, ever go back there.
