…but, I’m using my BRAIN! You know, to sort things out, organize my diabetic needs, in the interest of good health. In my prior post, I spoke about responsibility.Sleep habits, healthy foods, and exercise, fall into that category and MUST be a priority in my life and, I accept complete responsibility for each sector. This really IS the way to good diabetes management and great glucose levels.
I walked this morning — first thing. Ugh. I hated every minute, but I did it; NO CHOICE.
Food planning, I’ve FINALLY accepted it is imperative to avoid “slips.” I went shopping today with lunch and dinner menus a priority. My freezer is chock full of chicken and fish, so my basket was filled mostly with vegetables and fruits.
Breakfast is the most difficult meal of the day for me. Why? Chocolate chip pancakes, waffles, of course! Either would be my choice. This is the ONE MEAL that is a problem for me, and it’s not a new dilemma. I’m allergic to eggs, so there’s that. I like most foods, but my issue is the consistencyof some of them — cottage cheese, for example, oatmeal, yogurt, anything mushy or gushy — I just can’t get them down. What to do?Any suggestions? The “most important meal of the day” (or so THEY say) is the one that I can’t seem to resolve. HELP! PLEASE, I’m pleading with you!
Regarding organization, new recipes are vital for me to keep interested in food preparation; I’ve been scouting the Internet for different ones. I’ll share of my T2D epicurean delights, as I make them 🙂 Variety is the spice of life!
I’m determined and dedicated to use my BRAIN to carve out my path to successful diabetes management!
About my BREAKFAST DILEMMA, seriously, if you have any ideas, I’d be thrilled to hear them. THANKS!!!
It’s incredible the impact the weather can have on us. The SUN was out today, and I felt like a million dollars $$$.
I ate healthy food — breakfast, lunch, dinner. (Okay, lunch did include french fries — but I didn’t eat many of them). Many posts ago, I declared — the French Fries will NEVER go. I figure it in with my carbs.
Tonight the MOON was enormous and as full as it could be. The STARS glittered across the sky, predicting good weather for tomorrow and an increase in romance tonight — a star-filled sky has that effect, doesn’t it?
The forecast in my area is sunny with some clouds and 66 degrees for Wednesday, March 23, and I CAN’T WAIT! You know where I’ll be headed…
Bill from Simple Living Over 50 has been posting about the effect of the time change on his routine. It’s pretty incredible — how the world turns… Check out his blog! It’s interesting, inventive, and he’s also a T2D.Spring ahead/Fall back definitely has it’s effect on our moods, appetite, sleeping habits — the whole Magilla! With it, though, comes the change in weather; in my area = SUN, FINALLY! The sunnier, warmer weather conditions are improving everyone’s mood, that’s for sure. Even the grocery stores seem move civilized than in the past few months.
The SUN, the MOON (huge tonight!) and the STARS all fit into the way our lives “spin.”
Have a good one, folks, and enjoy the nice weather. SOON, very soon, our stores will be filled with local vegetables and fruits — FRIENDS OF THE DIABETICS!— and we’ll be eating and feeling healthier.
