The next day

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Well, I started out hard and fast.

Because the afternoon went fast and furious, I dinna test with the diabetes. I do know I'm going to have to figure out how to test and keep expenses affordable. Testing so many times a day is going to become expensive. I wish there was a cheaper way to do this. Cheek sample of saliva, maybe?

At any rate, I last tested the lunch post-prandial. It was a 113. I don't know if this is on the high side for a post-prandial.

On the positive side, I had a fairly high step count for restarting the step counting, with over 3800 steps, which is over a mile for me. The pedimommymometer says none of them were aerobic.

Food intake yesterday included the egg omelet with veggies, with a few thin slices of pepper jack cheese, some chai and an apple.

Lunch was homemade onion soup ( vegetable broth, onions, a little EVOO), marinated radishes ( rice vinegar, salt and some ACV for tartness) and a palmful of rice in the soup, plus a slice of Harvarti dill cheese. Not too large a slice, since I needed to use it in the soup I made for dinner.

Dinner was homemade soup. I made and ate my potato corn chowder: a can of creamed corn, about 7 medium cut potatoes, 3 cans of milk, a can of water, a splash of vegetable broth, cut onions, about 1/2 of a block of havarti dill cheese, plenty of dill weed, about 2 TBSP of butter, ~ 1/4 c. of mozz. cheese, plenty of dillweed and ~ 1/8 cup of parm cheese.

With picking up M from school early and going to Target, there was plenty of walking there, and then Stations of the Cross and a large parish hall provided for plenty of kneeling and standing and walking the hall. I took a few shots at the basketball hoop but the shoulder still hurts, so can't do that yet. :(

    LJCANNON, thank you! I try to keep KIMS as my mantra: Keep it moving, sista!!! I hadn't been very successful with that. I think I really let things get to me. So many things happend starting in April and I think I used that as an excuse not to stay on top of things. I really want to stay on top of things. Sometimes, I just feel so, so overwhelmed, like I do when shopping in any store. I just have to remind myself that shopping in the store means walking around in the store, and that means steps!

    emoticon Sounds like you had a very successful, active day. Keep it moving, even if the Pedomommymeter does say that it wasn't aerobic. It still counts in My Book!!
