January 31, 2019

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!

Random thoughts

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.
