Still here

Monday, November 10, 2014

Still here and have actually started cooking again! My body needs home cooked and non-processed foods to function. I am exploring glycemic index/load way of eating. Has anyone done this and how has it worked? From what I have read so far it looks like low carbing?


Plodding along

I have been back for a while now and only missed one day of food tracking. Although the scale says I have not lost the usually firm abdomen says I am improving. The week before last I was really cutting my carbs. When I went to step up on to the bus my Quad gave out and brought me down. Thinking it was too low carbs I have upped them to a more reasonable goal. What is bothering me though is even with increase in carbs my muscles, especially my legs are very week by the end of an eight hour shift...I am fairly sedentary at work so I can't guess what the issue might be? Anyone with ideas please let me know!


Merry Christmas!

Sunday I had like to eat carb wise because I knew I was going to have adult beverages at a concert... Ate like two chips with some meat and sour cream prior with beer. On the way home we stop to eat (still new to this) and had a bacon cheese burger which would have been relatively OK, but my daughter also got me a root beer and I drank it without even thinking.... bed all day...nothing to eat or drink until about 7pm and that was less than 30 carbs. Today FBS 12 hours later 156!!! Never been that high that I know of.... Note to self NO SODA...which I generally don't drink...
Live and learn!

    That is high, Jo, but you live and learn!!! That's what I'm trying to see what I can eat and what I need to eat less of AND what I just need to drop out of my diet!!!

A good day to you today!!!!

Since my diabetes education class on Thursday I have been trying to wrap my head around the fact that I don't eat enough carbs...boy was I on the wrong track! emoticon
This is going to be a learning curve for sure. So after finding all these low carb recipes I love I am going to set out to find some moderate carb and lower fat recipes and see how that works for me.
Yesterday was an epic fail but I wrote it all down along with my glucose's and will move on.
Have a great Sunday all and a healthy week!!
