Today was a crazy day at work. I was literally moving non-stop. Although, even with all of that activity, I was able to keep my BS pretty steady. I have to keep this post quick because I have an early day tomorrow.
Breakfast: Onion and Corn Pancakes
Pre-meal BS reading: 229
Post-meal BS reading: 290
-Whole wheat flour ((I didn’t have white flour)
I really liked this breakfast. I usually don’t like spice foods, but the chili powder gave it a really great kick. I almost skipped the chili powder all together and that would have been a huge mistake. I think that the carb nutrition info was pretty right on. My sugar went up a little bit, but that’s because I had a second cup of coffee that I hadn’t calculated insulin for. My breakfast kept me full and gave me ton of energy. I definitely needed it, I spent a majority of the day cleaning out the backroom and moving around large, heavy, boxes full of shoes.
Lunch: Cucumber salad with baked beans and a cheeseburger (no bun)
Pre-meal BS reading: 121
Post-meal BS reading: 190
I wasn’t able to take a picture of this because cell phones are not allowed at the club (except for employee break areas). I ate very close to what I had yesterday, except today I have about 2 tablespoons of bakes beans. I figured they would have a lot of carbs so I didn’t want to have too many. After lunch my sugar started climbing. I kept an eye on it and gave myself a correction when I saw that it had reached 290, but I didn’t want it to go too low since I was running around so much, so I kept my sensor in my pocket and glanced at it every time I remembered to.
Dinner: Grilled Sole with Corn and Asparagus Salad (I changed the recipe slightly, the grocery store didn’t have Halibut…)
Pre-meal BS reading: 131
Post-meal BS reading: 174
Dinner was a disaster. I completely forgot to get half of the ingredients for the dressing and when I grilled the sole it stuck to the grill and fell to the bottom. I was really upset because II had been working hard all day, lost my apartment key and all I wanted to do was eat and go to bed since I had to be up so early. It just felt like everything part of the recipe (except for boiling the corn and asparagus) was wrong. So Sean had to make himself Nachos and I had like half the sole I should have had (the recipe was supposed to make 4 servings, and I barely got one). Looking back I should have used tin foil, especially since I changed the recipe and cooked a different kind of fish. Not everything cooks the same and that was my first mistake. Well my first mistake was not reading my ingredients list as carefully as I should have.
Going to sleep now. Hopefully tomorrow is better!
