No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

A Gazillion Things
Previous Entry :: Next Entry


Read/Post Comments (6)


It feels like I have a gazillion things to do and I have no energy to do them.

I know it is not really that way and what I have to do, I don't have to do it.

However, I do feel tired.

Yesterday with all that has gone on the past several days, I can honestly say I was eating from stress. Granted I attempted to throw good stuff in there like cottage cheese and yogurt; but, when I took my glucose reading this morning it was 221. Yowser! It does not pay to eat when one is stressed.

This morning I pulled out the menu guideline the dietitian wrote up for me and followed that for breakfast. This is so much like Weight Watchers, only I am counting carbs. Granted, I need to watch out for the fats as she wants to get my . . . oh my, I can't think of the word now. Anyway, she wants me to watch my fat intake as well. I think the word is cholesterol but I cannot remember.

So, breakfast was:

1/2 c. of Corn Chex - carb: 13 g, fiber: 2g
8 oz 1 percent milk - carb: 16 g, fiber: 0 g
2 slices of pineapple, rinsed - carb: 16 g, fiber: 1 g

Total carbs: 45 g

I can have 45 grams of carbs per meal and 15 grams per snack.

When I told that man of mine about rinsing the canned fruit, he wrinkled his nose and said, "ugh." The dietitian's point was to cut the sugar.

I'm also supposed to eat whole fruit and to stay away from juices.

I am glad I have a guideline of what to eat for each meal. Now I need to keep foods high in protein in the house. Lisa, the dietitian, also said to drink 1 percent milk. Yuck, but I will do it and would you believe it, I came home with a gallon of 1 percent milk this week from the food bank.

Not much else going on around here, I have some gardening to do and laundry, maybe later in the day. My DH is still fussy. I offered him to read the paperwork I brought home from the doctor's because I felt it would give him some ideas on how to handle his diabetes but his response was, later. Okay. This is where I have to take care of me and I will.

Everyone have a wonderful day.
