I'm testing often, because I'm high often. I haven't faxed bloodsugars in over a week and I haven't been logging them because (get this) they're so bad. Why are they so bad? Partially because I've been eating total crap: cupcakes, pizza, cheesey sausage balls, potatoes with velveeta, etc. I have not been cooking as much (or eating enough veggies) since I've been either a party of one or literally at a party for the past week. The other reason I'm running high could have to do with a new medication I'm on, but, I take most of the blame on this issue as I'm not even sure if said medication messes with blood sugars.
Breakfast? Breakfast, when I was eating healthy (for all of what? 6 weeks?) was a boiled egg, yogurt, grapes, wheat toast with peanut butter, etc, etc. Lately, I've been lucky if I even get in a yogurt! It's ridiculous. I have eggs at home...I just need to boil them!
I have been PRETTY good about drinking only water and tea, though this week alone I've had 2 Diet Cokes (the previous weeks I've had none).
I've avoided artificial sweeteners entirely (except when we accidentally got artificially sweetened yogurt...but that was a mistake).
So, I need to climb back up on the wagon. Life at 100 mg/dl feels a LOT better than life at 400 mg/dl, which is where I've been living since the election-watch party with Caitlin and Ian last night.
