I went to my sister's last evening after work, and today we went to a class on making salad dressings. No demo today, she just talked, but I did get recipes for my 2 favs, Oil and Vinegar, and Creamy Caesar, plus some other very interesting ones.
We got back to my sis's and had lunch, I had a bowl of soup, my sis was kidding that she had her appetizer and dessert (a banana) and was still waiting for her main course.
Afterwards, we went out to the garage, and went through all the boxes out there that are earmarked for a garage sale. We put price stickers on everything, but there are still more boxes to be gathered up. I also decided to bring a slow cooker home, to replace the one I have here. I have so much junk and I really need to get rid of a lot of most of it. Why do I have such a hard time of letting go? Just because my mother never threw anything out, doesn't mean I should follow her lead, does it!
But I digress. I was starting to say that while we were out in the garage, all of a sudden I started to get a little shaky, so I went into the house and tested, I was 4.1. I have not been that low in a long long LONG time. I was 12. something in the morning. Trouble is, I live alone, and had a very low crash about 3 1/2 years ago and it scared me so bad (I lost consciousness) that I guess I am self sabotaging so I don't go that low again. Trouble is, that means my sugars are usually too high which will bring it’s own “rewards” facetiously speaking, of course.
It is hard to eat at my sis’s place because everyone there is either on a diet, or food restrictions. She doesn’t have much there that I can eat now. She has had to be gluten free for a few years now, but her husband has just recently gone on a diet through his chiro’s office, and her daughter recently started another type of diet, and it seems there is very little in the house for anyone else - oh yes, her son on a see food diet, he sees food and he eats it, -- mostly breads. Which I must limit due to carb sensitivity…. I guess I will have to take my own meals, or stay home in future. LOL
Tonight I am so hungry, it is all I can do not to eat the whole contents of the fridge, but I have been able to resist so far. I think I may have to turn in early just to divert my attention.
Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. Take care!
