Well, I decided to try to get my life “back to normal”.
1. I’ve rearranged my meds, so I’m only taking them a few times a day, instead of what felt like all day long.
2. I’m no longer pricking my fingers 3 times every day, but only doing it 2 hours after lunch. My glucose readings have been consistently good for before breakfast and after supper for a very long time. Most of my fluctuations have been after lunch, since we don’t always eat the same thing then. This has been very liberating feeling, plus it’s a lot less expensive, too!
3. I’ve finally quit putting my calorie count for each meal into FitDay.com. After faithfully keeping track of every meal for over a year, I was just plain tired of doing it. And, I still seem to be losing a little, as I’m not really expecting to eat any more than I have been eating.
Add them altogether, and I really do feel like I’m back to normal. I’m still not exercising the way I should. They did a piece on the news the other day saying that people who sit for 6 or more hours a day have something like a 40% higher heart attack rate, even if they exercise. So, I’m in big trouble. Have I changed the amount of time I spend at the computer since hearing that? No.
So, I’d say 3 steps forward, and one huge one backward, until I get my duff off the sofa and start moving around more.
