Went to a friend's house for dinner and....

Sunday, April 06, 2014

had a great time. It's been way too long since I had a fun evening like this one.

Most of the food wasn't on my plan but I was okay with that. Even though I'm holding steady as far as weight goes, I wanted to go, eat what everyone else was eating, and have a good and 'normal' time so that's what I did.

There was fried chicken, green bean salad, romaine salad, deviled eggs, and absolutely delicious homemade rolls. I had some of each and even ate a small amount of the slice of lemon cake I brought home with me. The best part is that my blood sugar right before eating was 89 and just a few minutes ago it was 124. Woohoo, that's great considering all I ate!

Bolusing for that many carbs can still be a crap shoot for me, even after 14 years, so I expected to be higher than that. I was so relieved to be at such a lovely number but would have been okay if I'd needed to correct a bit, too.

I eat my lower carb, moderate fat diet to keep the blood sugar under control but I refuse to let my diet or my blood sugar control me. I don't splurge often but certainly did tonight and enjoyed every minute of it.

I'm back on the path now and feeling great about the fun, companionship, and food of tonight. :)
