It is #BGWed and I posted my much too high morning reading of 283. Ever since the day after Thanksgiving 2014, I have been experiencing the most stress in my life. My blood glucose readings are certainly reflecting this as my A1c level has gone higher then I like.
I am thankful with an appointment with my dietician today as she is helping me with a meal plan to make my daily meals easier to prepare. Cooking is not my favorite thing to do and I don’t think it ever will be.
I think for those of us with diabetes and I certainly know for me, I wish eating was not necessary for survival. This would make my life so much easier. My life would be less expensive and think of all the time I would save with no food shopping, preparation, and dishes. Not to mention money as I do prefer organic and grass fed beef. I even give my puppy grass fed chew sticks that thankfully Costco sells.
However, this is just not reality even though I have wanted it to be reality for as long as I can remember.
I do recognize that eating with family and friends can be an enriching and needed time in dealing with the unexpected events life always throws at us or a time to enjoy fellowship.
So, this morning I started my day at 283 and I can’t wait for it to be under 150 and above 80. The overnight high or low readings are the ones that do the most damage and frustrate me and scare me the most.
As always, I will keep plowing along and not get struck on the high number I woke to this morning as I know it will not stay with me all day.
I hope to enjoy a late breakfast as that will mean my BG is back in my target range. A place I try to stay as often as I can. Thirty years into this it is so important to be in my target range.
Happy #BGWed to you, I hope your numbers run where you like them!
