My weekend came and went too quickly. I did not like waking up to get ready for work while the rest of the world starts their weekend plans. My sugar was steady all night though and I love that! I had a little extra time before running out the door and was able to not only read a book (currently halfway through Wuthering Heights), but I was able to make a delicious, warm breakfast.

I get into work after being off for 2 days and the golf shop is a disaster. No surprise there. At least this mean’s I’ll be really busy for the whole day and that will hopefully make it fly by really fast. I’ve been feeing really good these past few days, and I think that a big reason why my sugars have been so steady instead of up and down like they were last week is because I’ve been exercising more. Granted I only worked out yesterday and Thursday, but until then my ‘workouts’ consisted of me walking up the hill to my job from the parking lot or moving boxes around in the backroom. I love to run and go for bike rides and walk with Sean at the end of the day, so I’m definitely going to make exercise a priority. If it means my sugars will hang around 150, why wouldn’t I?
Mid day BS reading: 92 (As soon as I started work I was on my feet re-folding, re-organizing, helping members, opening boxes, cleaning out drawers)

-2 small quesadillas with grilled vegetables (I have no idea what kind of tortillas they used, I’m assuming flour): 25 carbs
Post Meal BS reading: 319…I clearly underestimated.
It’s frustrating, but I just gotta give myself a correction and keep going on my day. The rest of my day flew by pretty quickly. Couldn’t wait to get home and relax again.
Dinner BS reading: 247

-salad with lite vinaigrette: 0 carbs

Welp, cant believe the week is already over. I don’t know mow much longer I’d be able to continue tracking my food to this degree, but I think a week is pretty good. It has been an awesome exercise in showing me what works and what doesn’t. I love experimenting with food and trying different things so I’m excited to keep testing out new recipes. All of this wonderful, fresh food is making me feel so healthy. I’m a big time planner, so figuring out what I’m going to eat for the week is my idea of fun. Now I’m going to spend the rest of the night googling different ways to cook eggplant 🙂
