Wow, it’s already been 11 days. I’m also finishing up day 3 of my #7daychip challenge.
I am writing this blog a little earlier than I normally would because tomorrow is going to be very busy. I have to finish up school clothes shopping for 3 members of the wrecking crew. I have decided to break it up into shifts, because they make it almost impossible to shop when they are all together.
This mornings fasting blood sugar was 144 mg/dl.
And tonight before and after dinner blood sugars were 161 mg/dl and 189 mg/dl, respectfully.
I think the reason they were so high all day is because I sipped on a diet coke literally all day long. My mother and I took the girls shopping for their school shoes and it was hot and a diet coke was convent (although obviously not smart). Back on water tomorrow….sigh.
Breakfast: 1/2 of a 3 egg and cheese omelette with picante sauce on top.
Lunch: Chicken club sandwich from Chick-fil-A minus the buns.
Dinner: Taco salad (taco meat, lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, and hot sauce) and 2 “low carb” tortillas.
Snack: 1/2 cup unsweetened almond breeze milk (I was in a milk mood).
Even being “low carb” the tortillas still had 6 net carbs each. However, they didn’t seem to make my blood sugar spike, so that is a plus. And they were actually pretty tasty. I cut them into 1/4ths and then sent them for a quick dip in a little bit of hot oil to crisp them up. I was very pleased with them. So thank you Heli for the wonderful suggestion! Keep ’em coming.
I don’t normally post everything I eat. But I know my friend, who also struggles with elevated glucose levels, is always looking for suggestions and ideas. I am hoping that this may help!?
My toes are still pretty tender. I tried my tennis shoes on today and was unable to wear them for more than about 2 minutes. Man did I do a number cutting them too short or what? Pray for them to heal up this next week. The 5k in 100 days class begins on August 29th. I want in and I want to be ready and I don’t want something as silly as 2 sore toes keeping me from it. Pray pray pray, please.
