Life has been pretty busy/stressful over the past week and I neglected writing about it.
Some good things happened – like my friend Lisa got married. I very much enjoyed being part of her special day and had great blood sugars all day. Woohoo! A fellow diabetic looked over my sugar when I was checking at the reception and was also impressed.
Speaking of testing, I am not really a fan of other people wanting to actually know what my blood sugar is. It’s like weight to me. If I want to share it, I will. Last night I had dinner with another fellow-diabetic (both examples are type 2’s) and tested before we ate and said, “Oh, I’m at 113! Nice!” But when people ask it bothers me. I will tell people if I’m high or low, but I think the specifics are up to me.
Speaking of weight, I’m part of a “Biggest Loser” competition from now through the end of October. I keep track of my weight but hope this provides some extra motivation. I’m not asking for it externally though, just seeing what happens.
Speaking of keeping track, I am doing that thing of writing down what I eat/drink. Not dieting, just wanting to monitor better.
I don’t have a good transition for this one, but we are having fall-ish weather in Maryland and I love it!
And the countdown to AR is now 15 days! woot!
