ToF End of Week 1

There was good and there was bad.

The good:
- Logging.
- Lost weight
- More active

The bad:
My blood glucose numbers were up 50 points this morning!!!! What!!!! Why!!!!
There is no rhyme or reason. This Stuff just happens.

What to do? Carry on of course, blips happen. There was more good than bad. I just need to keep a close eye on my BG.

Plan my menu for the week.
Get my exercise
Monitor blood glucose

Bring on Week 2

    Ah, the wonderful mechanism that is our bodies! If only they were as predictable as machines, but alas. I know you will keep moving forward -- as you said, more good than bad, so that's just excellent! Stay the course!

    My daughter is only one month pregnant. She went through the whole fertility business with Rebecca and they decided to try to get pregnant on their own for 18 months, and if it didn't happen, call it quits and just have the "only". (My SIL has a brother 6 years older that he is not close with, and he felt strongly that children should be born close together.) In fact my daughter had an appointment to have an IUD implanted when she realized her period was late...and the rest is HISTORY!!!

    Thank you for your kind thoughts about my mom; I am heartbroken especially knowing she is laying the groundwork for her decision NOT to undergo chemo. We should know next week the results of her tests. The worst fear is that it's already spread.

    Did you have anything different to eat?
    Were you short on water?
    Did you get a little less exercise than usual for you?

    STRESS??? -- OMG, that one is a bugger for me for sure and definitely gets that cortisol pumping which = increased blood sugars, even in the face of "being good."

    Good luck and believe me, I understand!
