I have been doing pretty good eating whole food plant based this week. Today didn’t start out well though before I wasn’t prepared. I have been working 10 hour days this week to earn some extra money so that my kids and I can get a better apartment next month. Man, the cost of 2 bedroom apartments are ridiculous!! But moving to a better place will allow me to work from home which will make working extra hours a lot easier which will help pay the exorbitant rent. And then on Wednesdays, I meet a friend of mine at Panera to write. I think I might of mentioned that before. Anyway, the kids and I didn’t get home until late and I didn’t want to stay up late to get stuff together.
At least I wasn’t falling asleep at work today like I usually do. For some reason, I usually become exhausted after I eat actually start drifting off while I’m working. I sit at a computer all day long. I try to take a short walk on my breaks but I only get 15 minutes so I can’t go too far.
But I did take some insulin last night but my blood sugars haven’t improved much. It’s is going so slowly that I’m getting discouraged but I really want to get rid of this diabetes. Yesterday, my feet were really bothering me. It’s like pins and needles on the bottom of my feet and they feel like they’re frozen.
My eyesight is doing well though. My computer glasses are working perfectly while I work. Because of all the overtime, I haven’t worked out with my sister, though my daughter and I did go for a nice, long walk on Monday and Tuesday, which seems to help the blood sugar readings.
My last blood sugar reading tonight was 303. I took 45 units of humulin so we’ll see what it’s like in the morning.
