–to go out to dinner.

“Normally,” I go online to the restaurants website to check out the menu, so that I won’t “browse” when I get there. Unfortunately, I don’t have time for that; in a hurry.

“Normally,” I make sure that I eat a healthy snack, between lunch and leaving for the restaurant.

“Normally,” I make sure to down a big ol’ glass of H2O, before leaving.

Downing the water now.

Obviously, my “preparation” wasn’t terrific — but, the water should fill me up, to the extent that I’m not ravenous!

It’ll be fine. I hope.




Making It Better

Let’s get this straight — LIFE’S NOT EASY! Period

Now that that’s out of the way, I’ll get back to Type 2 Diabetes. Every day is different, but today it was a royal pain in the ass. I’m working my way back to really good management — and it sucks.

The good news is I’m not giving up:

  • Back to walking the mall — too hot outside.
  • Drinking my brains out — water, that is.
  • Monitoring my blood sugar — damn glucometer.
  • Eating properly — no matter how that miserable sugar beast tries to creep in!



Life Got in the Way —

Ugh. Life doesn’t just “get in the way;” we LET it happen. (At least, that’s what I think.)

So during the month’s that I was otherwise involved, I wasn’t writing.  A+ was not a grade that I earned in Diabetes 101, during that time.  It wasn’t pretty — evidently, I’m a stress eater.

I admit it — I caved. Damn those cravings! SUGAR = addictive. 


The good news is I’m back on track. Part of my “relationship” with Type 2 Diabetes, is my belief that every day is Day 1.
