I made a post last night, the 31st. I went to look at it later, and it was gone. Not sure what happened to it, but I am now going to recreate it as best i can.
I had my standard cottage cheese and string cheese in the morning. For full transparency, I will admit I also had some peanut M&Ms. Let me explain: I work for a food manufacturer, and every few weeks we have taste tests. As a thank you for doing the taste testing and giving our feedback, they give us a little “treat”, usually candy. Normally I pass them by, but not today. Why couldn’t I pass them by today? Well, today’s taste testing consisted of Indian/curry type foods. Anyone who knows me knows I STRONGLY dislike Indian/curry food. But I thought I would try it anyway. Ugh YUCK! I needed something to take that nasty taste out of my mouth, hence, the M&Ms.
Lunch was scrambled eggs with real bacon bits.
Dinner was 2 boneless, skinless chicken thighs pan fried in avocado oil, and some green beans. Simple, yet delicious.
I almost didn’t take my first break this morning. I had a lot going on, and it was super foggy out. I don’t like to walk in the fog, dangerous and cold! But I needed to get out and get some fresh air, so I walked. The afternoon walk was much nicer, sunny and upper 40s.
I didn’t get my after work walk in. Thursdays are workout days with my personal trainer, so walking doesn’t happen. However, I still managed to get 11,116 steps in for the day.
Blood Sugar Numbers
My morning blood sugar was 112. I would love to see it in the 80s or 90s again like it used to be. But that was when I was on 2 diabetes medications, so this should be expected when dropping a drug. But I would still like to see it…
My 2 hour after-dinner (postprandial, I think it’s called) number was 109. The American Diabetes Association defines normal postprandial glucose to be below 140 2 hours after a meal. I think 109 is pretty darn good!
I didn’t have much for random thoughts when I made this original post last night, and well, I still don’t. So I will leave you with this: If I can make the commitment, and STICK WITH IT, to live a healthier life, ANYONE can! Seriously! You can do this! You just have to choose to. You have to choose your health over everything else. You have to choose YOU.
