Here’s to Day 2 of my blog!


As usual, I had cottage cheese for breakfast, and 2 pieces of string cheese for my mid-morning snack.

For lunch I had the rest of the container of tortilla soup, somewhere between a half and 2/3.  Probably more than I should have eaten, but well, I ate it.

Dinner was 2 mangled pieces of Atlantic cod.  The pan I fried them in really sucks so they stuck pretty badly to the bottom.  I also made up some frozen stir-fry veggie blend.  It was a mix of beans, broccoli, carrots, red peppers, mushrooms, watercress and a few other things.  Yum, pretty darn good!


Again, I made it out walking for both of my breaks today.  The sun was shining brightly and there was quite a nip in the air, but it was beautiful.  My after work walk was even nicer, the temp was up to 52 and the sun was still out in force.

Between my 3 walks and doing some cleaning around the house, I managed 16,620 steps so far today.

Today’s Blood Sugar Numbers

My morning blood sugar was 114, and pre-dinner was 87.  I don’t always test before dinner, I just happened to think about it at that time both yesterday and today.  If I think about it again tonight, I will test before I go to bed, which will be about 2ish hours after dinner.

Random Thoughts

I’ve been reading a book called The Obesity Code, by Dr. Jason Fung.  It is a life changing book.  If you are overweight, and/or diabetic, or love someone who is overweight and/or diabetic, I STRONGLY recommend that you read it.  I haven’t finished it yet, am about halfway through, but omg it completely changed and challenged everything I’ve ever learned about obesity, weight loss, and diabetes.  I don’t agree with EVERYTHING he writes, but enough of it so that it totally blew my mind.  Get it and read it!
