Wake Up Call 01/31/2021

I have been taking a diabetes nutrition class and the last one we get to test out Freestyle Libre 2 which is a continuous blood sugar reader. The sensor is attached to my arm and I am finding out I stay high in my blood sugar readings, over 200 most of the time. I didn't adjust my eating, fast food. I wanted to see what happens. Now I need to start actually coming up with balanced meals. Low carbs and high protein.

I know I need to really cut down on fast foods and when I do eat them make better choices like take off the buns on hamburgers. Eat salads which a couple have really good ones. Cook more at home. Also I need to actually get outside and walk. And there are a couple of chair exercises I can do.

    emoticon Denise! That was smart - checking your numbers with your usual diet. That can help you figure out when substitutions would be helpful. Kinda like a fairly-instant reality check! emoticon You got this, kiddo! Life is all about choices, isn't it? Just remember you don't have to make the BEST choice all the time; a few food goodies won't hurt. It's the frequency of those goodies that counts. I'm preaching to myself here...I'm trying to wean myself from dessert after dinner every night. emoticon

    Thanks for sharing.... emoticon emoticon emoticon
