August 1st — HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)

Monday, August 1, 2016

As promised, this morning, I put my best foot forward —  DAY #1!

Started out by checking my blood sugar = 106, weight = 137.0 lbs. Continued 3x during the course of the day. Numbers were level.

Drank 4 oz. of V-8 juice.

Walked from 8:30 – 9:15, in between the rain drops.

Returned home and had breakfast (1/2 peach, 1 slice whole wheat bread/peanut butter) This is the most difficult meal of the day for me. I’m allergic to eggs — everyone’s favorite breakfast food! I’ll be working on finding alternatives for healthy breakfasts.

Jumped in the shower, then off to my writing group  (11 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)

Dr. app’t 2:00 p.m

Oops — lunch? Didn’t happen.  😦   Got to dr. office early. Chinese take out across the street. I ran in and got a cup of chicken/rice soup. (ate half.  It’s something…)

5:00 p.m. — HIT THE BRAKES — Kathy:  You’re diabetic — EAT!

5:30 p.m. — Prepare and eat dinner. (bowl barley, vegetable soup/a few saltine crackers.

7:00 p.m. — Dessert (sugar-free pudding. Dollop of whipped cream).

SLOW DOWNbedtime routine.  This is the most difficult time of the day for me. Why? because most people would refer to it as “bed”time but I’m just getting rolling. My plan is to start to slow down around 8:00 p.m. and actually go to bed at 10:00 p.m.  I brought a cup of chamomile tea to bed with me and started to read.  Perfect, right? It would have been, except that I realized I hadn’t finished my blog. I broke the #1 Sacred Rule of Nighttime Routine — I grabbed my laptop. Ugh. I know better than that! Quickly, I finished this post and now, it’s off to bed for this Type 2 Diabetic.

A quick spray or two of my Lavender and Vanilla Pillow Mist, and off to sleep I go.

Tomorrow? I’ll start over and improve each aspect all the way through the day!

Sleep tight!

  1. Looks like your New Year has started off a good note. My usual morning walk turned into a evening walk today because of rain earlier througout the day and I finally remembered to eat some soup for dinner a 8 p.m. not ideal but I ate.

    1. Been there, done that. We’re still doing just fine. I’ve had those “late” dinners too. It’s not ideal, but I’m w/you — at least we ate!😂
      Re: Soups

      Because of my “Dental Dilemma,” I’ve become one with my soups. What I have come to realize is that soup can be a really healthy alternative. I’ve been eating a lot of soups w/barley and TONS of vegetables. This turned out to be the unintended consequences of my dental issues. It’s all good. HAPPY NEW YEAR, Deb! 🎉
