Yesterday was the best day I've had in 5 years or more. Hubby took a day off from golf. We had our CNA/Sitter come in to stay with Mom. Mom decided that she liked her so it would be okay for her to stay while I was gone.
We went over to West Virginia to the Spring Flea Market at the Fairgrounds. There were vendors from all over and it was so crowded. We walked and looked and enjoyed ourselves. We bought several things but didn't go overboard. After that, we went to Magic Mart and looked. I found a blouse on sale and got that.
Hubby treated me to lunch at Long John Silvers. We don't eat out much and I enjoyed the meal.
It should come as no surprise that I have been less than enthusiastic about living healthy here lately. It started last November when the Holidays began. I have been off and on my diet plan since then. I have done well at times and at times have thrown caution to the wind! Mostly it started when my Blood Sugar levels became normal and I relaxed some. Now, I know I wasn't cured but-----for some reason my brain decided that I could start eating junk food again since I was better now.
Last night I went out to cover the tomato plants and just didn't feel right. Very weak, dizzy, out of it. I came in and stuck my finger. It was 97. Now, I'm not sure what that means but I don't think it should be that low at night. I got up this morning and did another fingerstick and it was 117. So I am headed right back into pre-diabetic range. Something I fought so hard to conquer.
I have got to get myself back into the proper mind set and do better. I have gained weight. Weight that I fought so hard to lose. Maybe knowing that occasionally I can have a life outside my home will help. I know what to do. I just have to do it.
