walking on icy roads

December 5th, 2005 at 07:15 pm

walked with mom for 35 minutes. The roads were pretty slick, but the sun was shining. I told mom if we wait for good walking conditions we won't walk all winter so we should at least try on sunny days. It was still freezing and very icy, but nobody fell. I fell on the ice about 20 years ago and bounced. I broke my ankle in 3 places so I'm very leery of ice. I don't want to have that experience again, but I also don't want to lose the momentum I've built up walking for the last 8 months.

Finished reading the library book The G.I. Glycemic Index Diet book by Rick Gallop. Pretty Good. I'm reading a bunch of stuff about the G.I. Diet right now as an aid to losing weight and controlling diabetes. I started it today and feel really good. Not hungry at all and the food was all things I like to eat. So far, so good. I'm reading more books about this subject as I go to reinforce the concepts. This may not be the best month to start, but I feel like I'm ready so I'm going for it.

    I feel for you. I hate ice too and I take those bitty baby steps over it.

    I have diabetes too. Please post more on what is working for you!

    I'm on the South Beach diet, which utilizes the G.I. of foods in determining which foods to eat and which to avoid. It's been relatively easy so far, and DH and I have both lost considerable weight. I'm anxious to go back for my cholesterol recheck to see what difference this has made. Good luck!
