I'm feeling a lot better without the sugar. I cannot imagine how out of control it must have been this past year. I've got them under control. I am learning what foods I can eat, and what I need to watch out for.
For example, I pretty much have Cheerios and a banana with Almond Milk for breakfast. My sugars go up with it and and I need to take more insulin to cover it so it does not spike.
This morning I made an egg white omlette with spinach, low fat cheese, mushrooms and avocado. It was really good, but I need to take a lower dose of insulin, if at all.
Last night around midnight I had a HUGE sugar low. I woke up disoriented, my vision blurry, and frankly it scared me. I got up and staggered to the kitchen and pour a small glass of OJ. I sat down and waited for it to pass. Took about five minutes. I didn't even check my sugar at that time.
This morning it is good. I think it was the result of doing my first spin class last night. I worked it pretty good for my fitness level and couldn't always stand up because I could feel the pain in my legs. Anyway, I came home and made a shake with banana, blueberries, protein and almond milk. That was supposed to be my snack. (I split it in half.) I laid down and went to sleep and did not get my proper dinner in.
I have to get used to this new lifestyle. It is a huge change. A change for the good though.
Tonight, I'm meeting friends to do the Dance Fusion class. I'm looking forward to it. I'm taking tomorrow off, but Saturday will be Zumba and then spa! Saturdays will be my new pampering days at the gym. Sweat it out in the steam sauna, hot-tub and a leisurely swim, not necessarily in that order.
Also, this weekend I"m moving all my furniture out of my bedroom and painting. The following weekend will be tearing out the carpet and preparing the floor so I can lay lamenent the following weekend. I'll be sleeping in the living room. I'm moving my bed out there. My living room is huge at 14 x 22 so there is plenty of room.
Well must be off to shower and get ready for work....
Hi ho hi ho it's off to work I go!
