I started day 7 with a fasting blood sugar of 161 mg/dl.
Naturally I assumed it would just go up from there. However, 161 mg/dl is a way lower starting point for the day than I am use to.
3/4ths of the wrecking crew start back to school next Monday. I figured I had procrastinated enough, it was time for school supply shopping.
Well, 5 stores and $300 later, all three girls are sufficiently supplied up! It was a long and painful day.
We ate out for lunch, which we are trying to avoid doing. I have found that at Chick-Fil-A I can get the chargrilled chicken club and not eat the buns (basically chicken, bacon, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles), and it doesn’t run my sugar up. Score.
At 6 pm we were still school supply shopping. Dinner time. So we decided to just grab something. We went to a local steak house where I had the chopped steak with grilled onions and mushrooms and a side of steamed veggies. I finished my meal with a nice big salad. I even had 1/2 a dinner roll.
Two hours later my blood sugar was only 144 mg/dl. 144! I can’t even tell you the last time my blood sugar was 144. I ate out, twice, and still managed to get my blood sugar down! Whoop.
I can’t even begin to tell you how happy this makes me. Not to be spending the money eating out, but the fact that I can manage when I have to.
On a side not, I have noticed that I am feeling much better. I don’t feel so run down all the time. I am anxious for these toes to finish up healing. I plan on re-starting my 5k in 100 days program!
Look out world…Christi’s on fire!
