Ooops. I forgot to publish yesterday’s draft, so I just did that first. Sorry.
Yesterday was a weird day (aren’t they all?). I managed to do my insulin dosing correctly, eating dutifully, and all the rest. And I took my blood sugar reading a couple hours after the mid-day meal. Holy crap, it was 378! That seriously freaked me out. I know it is “just” a number, just one data point along the way. But it still upset me. I ate a respectable dinner of mixed vegetables, a can of tuna and about a dozen and a half macaronis, all boiled together, topped with a little butter. It filled my dinner plate and I was full. For about an hour. I added 1/2 cup ice cream (such discipline!), then a couple hours later a handful of mixed nuts.
My reading this morning was just 158. Lowest I think I’ve gotten all along, so far.
Okay, so after sticking my finger and eating a bowl of cereal, I went back to bed for another hour and a half. Good sleep, active dreaming. Woke just in time for a shower and shave before feeding the boys, and doing my injection and morning pills. Remembering to do All The Things is still difficult at times, but if I keep at it there should be new habits forming.
Today is rainy, so I won’t be going much of anywhere, but that’s okay because I hardly ever do go anywhere. One thing I neeeeeed to work on is exercise. If I’m not walking 2-3 times a week to Kroger, I need to be doing something else to get my body moving more. Besides being good for the muscles, regular exercise will burn up a lot of the sugar. And today, I have work-related work to be doing. Tomorrow I start dyeing on a custom project, so I need to try and get the yarns pulled for that. It’s an awkward and time consuming project and I’m still unclear what order to do the yarns in. It will happen one way or another.
Since I forget there’s a draft post waiting for completion, I won’t try that again. If I have something to say I’ll just post it as a new item.
