Yesterday was a totally awsome day for me. For the first time in a long time I was able to walk up the stairs at work to the third floor without having to stop along the way and catch my breath.
I was able to sucessfully conquer the "Sugar Demon." at a baby shower we had for one of our caregivers. I was totally amazed that there was no fresh fruits or a veggie tray for those who can't or don't eat sugar. There was plenty of cookies, fried foods, some of the food had cheese in it, candy. I stayed back away from where the food was being served, but was to close enough to enjoy the rest of the party.
Later in the evening as I was walking down the hallway to another residents room. One of my favorite residents stopped me and asked me if I was losing weight. She could tell from the back. She also wanted to know how I was doing it. By keeping track of the food I eat each and every day, keeping in calorie range, and doing some kind of exercise 30 minutes each day. She told me that her biggest downfall was in the dining room. She is right, some of the meals that are suppose to be diabetic friendly are not.
We have cranberry turkey wrap, that is served on a white tortilla not a whole wheat one. I just wish my place of work would serve more low fat opitions.
Thought I would end this blog with a little humor.
