I'm afraid my daily routine is rather boring. Since I am having trouble sleeping, my day starts at random times. Being retired, the time of arising is not a factor in my life. My usual breakfast is Kroger Carb Master yogurt, 1/4 c of Fiber One, a couple of supplements and sometimes a banana. Less than 200 cal.
Morning is spent going over SP mail and normal email and listening to radio. (I am a political junkie.) and lunch is usually a slice of whole wheat bread with a tbsp of natural peanut butter with, believe it or not, ample yellow mustard.
Since my DW suffered the remnants of a major stroke, I do all of the shopping and cooking so the afternoons are spent shopping. I used to do major grocery runs but have stopped due to spoilage of produce.
The evening meal always consists of a tossed salad with a little oil and ample vinegar -- apple cider and/or red wine, protein and carbs. TV completes the day and for some ungodly reason I am usually up till midnite or 1 am (drats)
I also test my sugars at least 3 times a day even though I have obtained great diabetes control, there is no substitute for being always aware of what is going on. I was Dx'd with T II in 1996 and at time by A1c was over 9. It is now 5.2 last March and I am going in this week for my quarterly blood work. Based on my current 90 day glucose average I dont expect any significant change in my numbers, in fact I expect my endo will once again reduce my lantus dose.
As you can tell from my verbose reply, I dont do much exercise and that is embarrassing. I was walking at least 1 mile a day, but a few months ago, I went on a very ambitious 2 mile jaunt and when I arrived home, I fell on my face on the tile floor and spent few days in the hospital, guess I used that as an excuse for not being faithful to the daily walk.
I apologize for the length of this reply but I hope it gives you some help. Keep in tough, privately if you wish. This is a very difficult journey and we all need all the support we can get.
