Brief Diabetes Update

Monday, August 05, 2013

This afternoon, husband got his lowest blood sugar reading: 122!!! He was so excited!!! His whole focus centers around getting that number where it needs to be.

This evening, he insisted on having 3 HELPINGS of rice with dinner, and guess what...194 after dinner. "I'm still learning...", he said.

Over the weekend, I got a wok at Walmart. We used to have one when we were newlyweds, but after we had our kids we got rid of it because we never used it. My 8th grader is quite a chef now, and she is intrigued by cooking with a wok. It's been a fun week while we try new things. We got some tofu on sale at Kroger over the weekend too so we are adding it to lots of things and using the wok a lot.

Finally, the most telling quote from husband as of late: "This is harder than quitting smoking." And there you have it.

    For the tofu, I liked making a soysauce, ginger, garlic and honey marinade, cut into blocks and then stirfry at high heat so it gets a nice crust. (You can also dredge in cornstarch or flour to make extra crispy). Its good to know you have a cooking ally!

    Way to Go Poncin's. Jennifer with your Journaling experience Dan can learn what is good and bad. Apples have really been helping my numbers. I have had trouble with Oranges making mine go up. Every one seems different. Good Luck in the days ahead. Beware of getting too low since his body is not use to it. I have trouble with low blood sugar after cutting the grass. Down in the 90's.
