I am horrible with food. I can’t even tell you the amounts of junk food I used to eat pre-D. I have gotten pretty good at controlling myself at home, but I’m bad when I go out, bad when I’m stressed/have a pressing deadline or am unable to prepare my own food.
This week at the doctor, he asked me about the difference between one bad Tusday (where my sugars were in the 300’s) and one good Wednesday (where my sugars were in the 90’s all day). Let’s see, on Tuesday I ate a cheeseburger, onion rings, and a pint of ice cream. On Wednesday I ate a salad, string beans, tuna, a few cherries and some mixed nuts. Seems pretty clear to me.
Anyway, I’m trying to take it with the whole “one day at a time” type concept. I just need to make good food choices today. I am lucky in that I don’t have temptation in the house - no bread, no candy, no desserts. The only carb-laden foods in the pantry are some white flour, white sugar and uncooked wild rice. I have to cook or go out to have something bad.
