–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.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!!!
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!
Monitor glucose regularly
ONE DAY AT A TIME
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.
