Today, I ate at Subway for breakfast, the first time in a very long time. I had their steak, egg and cheese for breakfast with the server telling me that it was a very small portion. Only it was good for me, and I told him it was ok. Price was nice at $3.25.
Before my discovery of diabetes, I would have skipped breakfast this am because I'm going to have lunch with friends at noon today.
My doctors keep asking me if I feel better now that I am on meds, and how that change has happened. And frankly, I make something up. I did't realize that I was feeling badly, my schedule was such that I would just pick up a book and read, then sleep for a while. I'm tuning into my body changing, and I can notice when I'm more alert. But it is a new discovery every day.
This morning on the trivia questions by Sparks, I learned that one carb has four calories, now I can use those to count my calories as well.
I'm bummed out because my schedule is changing and I can get back to doing some of the things I've neglected. While returning to take care of my things, I will miss the time that I spent watching my granddaughter this summer. While she will always be at a special age, this was an extra special time in her life for me to see. A grandma gets to see the inner child and she has shared some time with me, some movies, some adventures, and her decision making. I can remember the special time that I had with my grandma. My granddaughter has good parents who do good things with her, and I'm grateful for the time that I had this summer.
