All day yesterday I was doing great with my diet until dinner came around. My wife made a baked potato for herself but usually only eats half. Dumb ass over here decides to go and eat the other half. Seems pretty harmless, right? Wrong. Blood sugar spiked to 151 overnight. I haven’t seen my numbers this high since I started this mission close to a year ago. WTF?
OK, so I set up a new workout routine where I am to rest every other day. This is fine, but on those rest days I have to make sure that I am eating correctly. Some eggs, a little bit of meat, and lots of vegetables, and that is it. Nothing else like a stupid potato. Ahhh.
So how exactly am going to get back to where I was? What will it take to make myself realize that I am flirting with disaster each time I do something stupid? It will have to done the same way I have been doing it for the last year. Good, old fashioned determination. For whatever reason I have lost my drive to succeed, and I have to get it back. I must think about everything that goes into my mouth and the effect it will have on my insulin sensitivity. On my off days I will either take a walk or get on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes. When I get those cravings during the day I will learn to embrace them and know that by waiting for my next healthy meal my body will learn to adjust to the schedule. Having a morning glucose figure of 151 is ridiculous and totally avoidable. This will not happen again. Now get to work Mr. Potato Head!
