need to get back on track

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Well, I fell off the wagon the last two days but I'm back on! It has been really hard because we have NOTHING in this house that is remotely good for my blood sugars and my husband doesn't get paid til Friday. Actually, we don't have anything except tortillas, butter and two potatoes in our fridge. emoticon So, I plan on spending tomorrow coming up with some healthy food ideas, look at the store ads, and get my coupons together so I can get some groceries on Friday. emoticon

    It is very difficult to eat healthy on a limited budget but just do what you can.
It does last longer when you adjust your portion sizes- but the three men I have in my family think I am starving them when I do.

I buy a lot of frozen veggies and make them the biggest part of my meal and I also like frozen fruit. emoticon

    we have been there done that. just when you have the money to get groceries try to get something healthy. its ok if you have to eat that just limit it. you cant go completly hungry.

    Sometimes that happens, but each day is a new day. Yeah, the shopping can be tough, but as others have pointed out, it's gets easier as you adjust you menu and how you eat. Good luck!

    Eating healthy is so ridiculously expensive! But, once you get yourself adjusted more it becomes something easy to do and awesome. It took me about four months to finally reign myself in and follow serving sizes and now our food goes so much further but, I still find myself buying heavily processed things because they are what is affordable.

Best of luck on your journey, and great idea with the coupons...they need to make them for fresh fruits and veggies tho!

My mood has finally improved and I'm getting things done around the house. I've kept up with the dishes and cooking dinner which is a big deal for me. emoticon My husband finally took the Christmas tree down and put it in the shed and tonight I rearranged the furniture and got the living room vacuumed. Tomorrow....laundry... emoticon

    good for you! as someone who has struggled with anxiety and depression I understand how difficult it can be to get minor household jobs completed. I also know how easy it is to eat to try to get rid of those feelings- I'd like to be your spark friend and be support for the changes you are making to be a healthier you. emoticon

Day 1

Friday, January 18, 2013

Today was day one of my commitment to get my blood sugars down and lose weight. I increased my dosage of lamictal yesterday from 250mg to 300mg. I woke up this morning with a really strange tired (not sleepy though) feeling and headache in my forehead area. I did not want to get out of bed but did it and got some things accomplished. Got dishes done, dinner cooked and rounded up the garbage to take it out. Felt good! I'm still having a little bit of anxiety in my tummy but not as bad a it has been. I'm getting that burning sensation on my skin. My pdoc think it might be peripheral nerve damage but my sugar is only 162 (2 hours after snack). I've been getting this burning/itching sensation for the past 4 or 5 days. I can cope. Right now I just want to get my mood stable and get back to life including getting my house clean! emoticon I'm also really working on keeping my logs and controlling the amount of sugar and carbs I eat.

    You're going about it the right way: one step at a time, bit by bit. It's probably a good idea to keep track of how you feel each day, too, so if any patterns develop, you can make your doctor aware of them...
