Mostly vegetarian, but I do eat some fish.
I try to avoid dairy because too much of it will trigger a migraine for me.

I am currently beating pre-diabetes without medication. I chalk it up to running 3 or 4 times per week (about 3 miles per run on average). I was on metformin for 2 years but as of Jan. 2011, I have been off for almost a year. My last A1C level was 5.5, which I was very pleased with.

Left to my devices, I tend to let refined carbohydrates dominate my diet. For me, there is such a thing as carb-addiction. As a result, I do best on a structured eating plan to keep my nutrition, weight, and health in check.

In all things, I try to give thanks to God.

Running on a Treadmill vs. Outside
I live in Denver and run outdoors year-round. For me, the treadmill is rather dull. When I use it at work, I tend to "tune out" instead of pay attention to the workout. I went running outside yesterday evening in 18 degrees with a light breeze. The snow pack on the sidewalks made for a fun obstacle course. I really enjoy the fresh air, rosy cheeks, and varying my course.
