My body weight is slightly down again but my blood sugar is high. I certainly attribute the high sugar this morning to that slice of pound cake with fresh strawberries and whip cream before bed last night. Oopsy! Yesterday I once again experienced gut problems in the form of diarrhea. The only thing I put in my body before these occurrences was coffee and I am thinking that maybe it could be the cause. I will rethink my coffee intake and consider giving it up also, but not this morning. Right now I am enjoying a fresh cup of the brew.
Thus so far I have dropped close to 6 lbs and will anticipate getting back to my 32″ waist in as little as another week or two. I still have no problems with hunger in the morning and by lunch time I am ready to eat. Yesterday we made BLT’s on white bread, (which is certainly a no no for diabetics) but all of the vegetables were fresh from the garden. Around 3:00 PM I felt hungry and had a yogurt dinner wasn’t until around 7:00 PM. Dinner was lobster tail that we found on sale at the local grocery store and we accented it with a fresh garden salad and half of a baked potato. And of course I already mentioned dessert. I fell asleep not too much later after dinner and slept 9 hours. My average is between 7-8 and the extra sleep sometime attributes to higher numbers in the morning also.
Lesson to be learned today: If you are going to eat things higher in carbs or sugar do it earlier in the day when you are active enough to burn it off, or better yet, don’t eat them at all. It will also alter the progress of the bodies ability to burn fat during intermittent fasting and you may not see the results you are looking for.
