Day 5 folks, day 5. I ‘ve never made it this far on a first attempt.
I am really proud of the fact that I have stuck to my plan fairly diligently.
With that said, yesterday for lunch I deviated. A lot. We were out running errands and it was lunch time, all six of use were starving!
I was in the mood for mexican, so when Chris suggested El Chico I didn’t hesitate one bit.
Before going in, I made the commitment with Chris that I would only eat a few chips and at dinner I was back on track 100%.
I stuck with it, I ate a few chips and for lunch I ordered the steak fajita revolutionary tacos. OMG they are so good. I order them every time we go there. And you can’t forget the top shelf guacamole. Y-U-M-M-Y!
After we finished lunch we went to Home Depot, Lowes, back to Home Depot then Wal-Mart.
Since on day 4 and yesterday morning my blood sugar had been in the mid 200’s I really was expecting to see my blood sugar up around 300 mg/dl.
However when I check my blood sugar after lunch it was only 158 mg/dl!
The only thing I can really figure was all the walking we did really helped my blood sugar level. Actually, I was kind of thinking it was a fluke and when I got home and checked it again it would be sky-high. That just wasn’t the case though! After dinner my blood sugar was a little higher at 191 mg/dl. No where near the mid 200’s to 300’s that I am use to hovering around.
Because of day 5, this next week will be an experiment with exercise along with my continued carb monitoring.
Tomorrow is weigh in day, I am super anxious to see my numbers in the morning. I am taking my camara to bed with me to document (if I don’t forget to actually take the picture).
