Eating

Been fairly good managing to avoid the sweet stuff. Today I ate good, but in the evening everyone had takeaway so I opted for plain burger and fries. The burger was very dry which I assume is better than ooozing grease. ? Ate this even though had beans on toast for tea earlier.
I fell asleep so Neil and I didn’t do our short evening walk tonight. Hoping to do some walking tomorrow after work.
We are all going away to a hotel for one night. R does not really want to go, bless her, she said she was going for me. I know how very very hard it is for her. She is also worrying about her GCSE results and going to 6th form college.
Am hoping one night away might give us a nice little break since we can no longer go on or afford holidays.
I don’t want to stress R out too much though, she needs a lot of care and understanding and time.
J is getting on with his dissertation which is due in on Monday. I know in lots of ways this had been a very stressful time for him.
Can you believe I am 51 on Monday! Think age is catching up with me!

Came to bed with a blood sugar of 20. Even though I included (see, getting the terminology now) correctly for said burger, so just had to have a correction dose. Also forgot to have levemir at my usual 8pm and had it 11:30pm instead. Grrrr…….
Hoping blood sugar is better in morning.

Take away the takeaway

Chinese fried beef with cashew nuts in yellow bean sauce with boiled rice (J paid!).
In my defence, I’d had a long day working 8:30am (hour for lunch) till 4:30pm. Home then out to work 5:30pm till 8:30pm. Looooong day.
Still feeling puffed out when walking and weirdly, when talking too much?????

Am totally managing to avoid chocolate, 1st day today!!!! Whoo hoodoo. It is easy to eat something and not realise you’re doing it so I must watch out for this.!
Jaki picked us up from work and called in for a cuppa which was nice. Too tired to watch tv tonight. Mind you, only just come up to bed and OMG it’s almost 1am already.

Pressed the snooze button on the alarm too many times this morning and ended up at the bus stop with soaking wet hair (having had a shower at home) and no time to use the hair dryer.
Getting weighed by Karen the nurse in the morning. She’s nit gonna be happy, no weight loss this week I’m pretty sure?
Time to read/sleep.
