Day 90+40 – (AD 1,252) – 20.0 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled 20.0 miles on my Schwinn 170. I have now completed 69.9% of the overall total miles that I have committed myself. Totals are now: 26,689.1 miles; 42,952.0 kilometers.



And today, on the virtual part of my journey, I have finished 90.4% of the distance to my next destination and goal point. Guess I need to be looking for that next destination on this dusty surface of the red planet.

Early morning blood sugar spiked up to 115 mg/dL. Looks like the holiday favors and cookies, and candies, and treats, and candies are something that I just cannot keep away from my mouth. And I know that I must watch my intake as I am trying to bring down my A1c. At this point in time, it has dropped ever so slightly from 5.58% to 5.55%.



Just read in The Hill, the article by Kenneth Thorpe “Managing diabetes is expensive – it’s time to step up our game”. Based on the numbers in his article I have saved the government, albeit Medicare a whopping total of $8,480. This, of course, does not necessarily include the fact that I have completely stopped taking any diabetes medication and I have stopped seeing a diabetes specialist. And yes, I am trying to manage the types of foods that I gorge myself with, as well as using my Schwinn 170 cycle 6 hours a week. Guess I am doing something right.


And now I smell the wafts of aroma from fresh baked sourdough bread in the oven. Do you realize that is over a year now since I have store-bought any bread?


My tagine arrived. It was so well packed that it took me about 30 minutes just to peel back the wrapping plastic.



And now to experiment. From what I have read, so far, the main difference with other cooking methods is the low heat, and not much searing is the main direction to produce a good meal. Here goes.

I’ve also been working on the transcription of an 1818 Indenture relating to the purchase of a lot, by my GGG-Grandfather James Smith, in the Town of St. Georges, Grenada.
