Day 8

Today has been a good day. Not perfect but close. According to Cronometer, I was at 22% fat calories which I think is actually higher than it was. I didn’t want to add each ingredient I put into tonight’s pasta sauce so I just used the generic homemade pasta sauce on the site. It turned out pretty good.

After my wild weekend, I wasn’t surprised that my morning blood sugar reading was 302, even after taking 45 units of humulin before bed last night. Yeah, I went a little wild this weekend. So I took another 45 units this morning before work. It didn’t seem to help as my blood sugar readings were 430 after breakfast, which was a bowl of pumpkin spice Life cereal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Lunch was a veggie sandwhich, no mayo, on whole wheat roll. And a small back of Sun Chips but the fat g were really low. I was still in the teens of my fat % at lunch.

After dinner, my daughter and I went for a 45 minute walk around the neighborhood and when I came back and tested my blood, I was at 187. Whoo hoo!! So I am not going to take any insulin tonight and follow the low fat eating again tomorrow and see if I can keep my numbers in the low 200s. Getting good results like that make it so much easier to say no to temptation.

I can’t wait to see if I can repeat these results tomorrow.
