Alittle of this and alittle of that...


Monday, June 30, 2014

I have started tracking my food again. It is difficult still and can be overwhelming but I think it is worth it to see my blood sugar and how I gain or lose. So yay me.

Food wise I am not doing perfect. But I am getting better and that is what matters. Last night I made hamburgers for dinner and macaroni and cheese. I should have had a salad or veggies with it but I didn't :( But on the positive I would have usually eaten two hamburgers and I only ate one. I even only cooked one for myself. I was very proud of that.I am also eating fruit too. An apple or two everyday & I have grapes, watermelon and a melon to cut up.

I am also drinking more water yay! I filled up my brita water bottle and it helped alot. IDK why I drink more from a water bottle lol I am so weird. I need to get a second one so I can have one in the fridge cold and one drinking.

This morning my FBS was 161, higher then yesterday. I did have a bit of a big dinner and then foolishly drank sweet tea right before bed so that may have affected it.

My stomach was much better yesterday, not perfect but I wasn't just in ugh all day. Still some bathroom issues. TMI lol. But this morning I made a huge mistake of having a glass of cranberry juice and it wrecked me hard. IDK if it was because of the milk from my cereal or from the medicine, or some combination of all of it. But no no no. :(

Last night I slept well but falling asleep did not work out as planned. I had a very hard time sleeping. I felt something on my arm like a bug bite even though there was no mark.. and then I could not stop thinking about bugs crawling on me. So I kept "feeling" bugs and itching like crazy. I got up twice turned on the light, shook out my sheets. There was no bugs. I was just going crazy. Sigh.

I have my first therapy session Wednesday! eek I am so scared. The process of finding a therapist was incredibly difficult for one. But I finally found one and she just got in touch with me so yay. And her office is super close to where I live so I can walk there. I am so nervous omg.

    Don't be nervous about the therapist. If she does make you nervous when you meet her, then find another one. But it will be fine.

    Good job on starting to track your food. I should do that, I know. And good job on only one burger. Two is generally how I roll also!

You're not the only one that would have been freaking out about the bug in the bed thing. If I feel like a bug is on me {it's usually a hair tickling me}, it drives me crazy. I itch and scratch and feel like they're all over me. Drives me insane sometimes.

So glad to hear you're going to start therapy! For some people it really makes a HUGE difference. It is hard to go to that first appointment, but it gets easier. I hope your therapist is awesome and it really helps!
