Here is the news!

The change *IS* doing me good!

Okay, so I admit, I struggled with it! Now I wonder why! Some of you will see this note over and over again, as I plan to put it on my blog, and on my LJ page, and even My Space. It's just I am making so much progress I want to shout it to the world I know!

Almost a month ago, my blood glucose readings were at about 270 and my weight about 252 or so. I have started regular exercise, and am transforming the way I eat so it fits in with what I, being type 2 diabetic, ought to be doing! Today was absolutely the *BEST* blood sugar reading I have had since my diagnosis two or more years ago; down to 140. My last weight check, a month ago, had me down to 246, but I am sure that has to have changed since I have for the past week walked about 3 miles each day. I am eating more fruits and veggies and less of the bad stuff...still working on that part...it's a struggle because, as we all know the bad stuff is so yummy! LOL! But, anyway, I just wanted to update everyone, and show that I am making progress! I will keep y'all up to date on that progress, too! Sorry for, technically, cross-posting to all my different blogs, but I just finished one of my walks, and it's the only way I feel like doing things! LOL!

More news in the next day or so. I go to the doc on Tuesday and will have an update about my weight!

Welcoming a new friend!

Thanks to LJ ID= celrock I decided to post about my radio show...she is now one of my mutual friends on here since she also broadcasts at The Q Online. Anyway, she made a request today that was so cool because it was so out of the blue...Money by Pink Floyd. No offense against her generation, but anyone who is Cel's age and knows Pink Floyd automatically gains my respect! LOL!

Anyway, I wanted to welcome celrock to my friends on here. Happy reading, celrock! LOL!

My busy so-called life!

Okay, as if editing sermons into radio shows for my church wasn't keeping my plate full enough, now I have to add having a new business under my belt. As of this past Friday, January 30th, I became an Avon Representative. I even have an online presence. Check out my store at http://www.youravon.com/alanwheeler.

It figures that my life was so boring, I didn't feel it was worth posting about. Now that it *IS* worth posting about, I am too busy to do so. Thank goodness for a friend who reminded me that I had "disappeared" because it made me think about coming on here and updating y'all. So, anyway, that's the scoop. LOL!

Writer's Block: Beyond Our Ken

Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, you've probably experienced something that you couldn't explain. What was it?

I once saw a light in the sky that I could never explain. It was at summer camp when I was about 17, and at first I thought it was a helicopter spotlight, but there was no sound, and the light moved to where a tree blocked my view of it and then the light was gone completely! It was a really bright white light, too!

Changed!

I think all of us have had at least one experience in our lives where we walked away feeling changed somehow. Transformed in a way that made us feel more deeply aware of something.

I know this is controversial, but since when have I shyed away from that?

Today I visited the Lincoln Crisis Pregnancy Center. This is an incredible Christian ministry here in town that ministers to women who are potentially pregnant, or newly pregnant and/or potentially considering an abortion. They reach out to these women in love and strive to make it real to them that they are, truly, carrying a little life inside them. I toured the facility and was moved by the care these women receive just in the kinds of services provided and the fact that all these services are provided free of charge.

The most touching thing was getting to hold these plastic models of babies at certain stages of the pregnancy; 10 weeks and 21 weeks. It's incredible! Even at 10 weeks the ears are formed, among other things. How anyone can argue that it isn't a human life inside a mother's womb staggers the imagination!

Just as staggering, though, are the people who, in the name of Jesus spew hatred at the mothers who would abort. They need love, compassion and the mercy of Christ, not hatred and vitreal.

Today, I am a changed person. Today I want to work, more than ever, for the defense of unborn babies.

My show is called "The Five O'clock Somewhere Saloon" and will be a mix of country, rock, pop, and probably even some jazz...you just never know with me. So, be sure to tune in and give my show a listen!

Writer's Block: Your Online Hot Spots

I seem to be going to http://www.imdb.com a lot lately. I am following the series Stargate-SG1 and like to read the brief synopses of the episodes before each epi starts. I know, I know...I am cheating, right? LOL So, anyway, that's the biggie...oh and http://www.dailywav.com for various audio clips from cartoons, movies and TV series, too.



Where do you spend most of your time on the web?
