Day 5 in the leaky liver diaries
Monday, February 11, 2013
I am kicking myself for not getting a morning BS today. Blood sugars 5.0 prelunch and 4.8 post aquafit workout/predinner. Decided to have a protein smoothie as dinner will not be until late tonight and those blood sugars will continue to go down after the workout. What is going on with these low numbers? I will take my metformin with dinner again and do a post dinner and morning BS tomorrow.
I am really enjoying my spark guests. It is good for my soul to have someone similar in interests and time of life to chat with who is also intelligent and between her and her DH are very positive, are mindful of food and grateful in their lives. Makes my job gratifying to fill their needs. Nice to feel good again and on track. I did some crunches this morning and back extentions. The family have things going on this week. Nothing is pressing. I'm thankful to have worked hard to be up to date on paperwork. I could start a house project... but think I am going to enjoy a "down" day instead.
1. DD called and shared. When you have a disease you can treat it many ways but one is to think of it as a dance. You can lead or the disease can lead. When you first start you don't know the steps and you are "fighting" each other. Sometimes you can dance separately. But as you get used to the steps it can move smoothly and look "good" to the outside world. I like this way of thinking. Whether it is Diabetes, Cancer, Depression...
2. One of my favourite status updates this week from 1CrazyDog said (paraphrased) we can walk towards things, goals but at the same time we are walking away from things, old behaviours. I loved the image of walking away from unhealthy eating and a sedentary lifestyle.
