Feeling motivated. That’s not to say I couldn’t stuff my face with hmmmm….. chocolate, donuts, cream cakes, sweets etc!!!!
But hey I’m trying to be good here.
What’s cheesing me off is there is no pattern to my blood sugars. Though am fairly consistent with hypos, getting them if I ‘run’ around a lot (being busy), or if I over estimate my insulin needs v my food. Otherwise blood sugars are around 12 to 15 mostly, grrrrrrrr……
I put my levemir up am and pm from 14 to 20. If I eat at night I am always higher in the morning no matter how spot on I get the novorapid. I try to eat no carb if I’ve got to snack at night.
Am eating fairly low carb most days cept for when I have massive cravings.
I’ve stopped taking the beta blockers cos they set off intermittent claudication. Not done much if any walking last few days so don’t know if that’s improved. Perhaps it wasn’t the beta blockers fault?
Weather’s been lovely today, been in work though.


Well, think I’ll go have a coffee.
Still dreaming about donuts!

Eating good

Half day in work. Didn’t eat breakfast which is something I mean to change. Came home, had some salad and homemade coleslaw with 40g cheese. Then at 2pm walked up to the village. Was a tiny bit of a struggle as my lower back was hurting and I was a bit puffed perhaps due to the beta blockers?. Still, I enjoyed the walk.
Got to the village and met Bill (Neil’s dad) then j came up in the car and the 3 of us went into the local pub for lunch.
I had braised steak with mash and peas. I did order dessert.
Ohhhhhh what to choose? All desserts seemed like they’d be high in syns. I chose trifle with cream.
It was gorgeous, but a massive portion and perhaps not the best choice. But I did enjoy it!!!!!!!! It was nice sitting in the pub chatting to J and Bill.
Got home, had a snooze due to large lunch!  Didn’t have an evening meal as such, just a bowl of strawberries with creme fraiche.
J had taken R to the Opticians this morning then onto Chester Uni to take some books back.
Feel much more relaxed due to the pills Dr G put me on, so glad I got put on them. Hopefully when things here at home improve, I can then come off them eventually.
Made a chicken thing for lunch tomorrow. Chicken in creme fraiche with light mayo and curry powder, with a portion of my homemade coleslaw with lots of rocket salad leaves and tomato and celery. Then I’ll have fresh fruit for afters.
Am feeling very motivated and good about being on the Slimming World plan.
It’s 1:35 am so I’d better read for a little bit then go to sleep.


Feeling motivated

After the Self Care course I am feeling fairly motivated. I am determined to reduce my intake of sugary foods. I want improved blood sugars and to lose weight.the course has set me off in the right direction.
Neil made a lovely chicken stew for tea. I did have a bowl of cornflakes earlier this evening, but was just the one bowl!!!!

I can do it and I will do it.


Tired. Though it is 20 past midnight.
