So, yesterday was day 8 of this “learning how to eat to lose weight and control my blood sugar” campaign.
It started out ok enough. My blood sugar was 161 when I woke up. I watched my carbs all day and by dinner time my blood sugar was 138.
Chris called and said he was going to pick up some chicken for him and the girls, what did I want? I didn’t hesitate to order nachos and burrito from my favorite fast food Mexican restaurant.
Call it ignorance. Call it arrogance. Call it stupidity. But I learned just because my sugar is down, don’t mean it won’t jump 150 points after eating carb loaded crap. After dinner my sugar was something like 275 mg/dl. And I could feel it. As soon as I ate, I could feel my sugar getting higher. I became tired and listless. Just felt bad.
I did learn though. And that really is the point. Hopefully it won’t completely derail the weight loss I experienced this past week.
While I am on day 8 of the campaign, technically I am back to day 1 of the #7daychip challenge. I am ok with that!
