So I had achieved an average 30 days of 130 blood sugar! I was so excited! Then I hit 3 days of spikes. Now it’s gone.
But it’s back on track this morning with a waking sugar of 119! I am trying to wrap up here shortly to get to bed, trying hard to get sleep in order if I can, as that has seemed to help, but too finding anything that has corn in it and trying to reduce intake – that’s helped greatly.
I’ve also added Mustard to my mix of supplements as eating a hotdog which should spike my sugars actually seemed to lower, the mix of relish + mustard galore is the only thing I could figure out over research that a bad eating choice as some would say ended in my sugars lowered, Mustard will do that, and so I’ve added that in and it really seems to help more than the previous suggestion of Fenugreek from my optometrist.
I don’t want to supplement my way to health still trying to eat healthily, proteins, smaller portions but more meals, good fiber intake and leafy greens (aka BIG salad!) – I do need to find more veggies I can stomach, but never been a big veggie guy, so salad, carrots, definitely my go-to.
This week wraps up a mildly stressful week, actually wrapped a call tonight on a potential programming gig, would be some decent money, a lot of time, but decent money – so that’s nice and yet some stress if it comes in, I’d have a little over a month to get it done.
I’ve tried to keep stress to a minimum when and where I can at the advice of the endocrinologist and diabetic coach, been thinking about maybe heading back to counseling, I found it useful – I’ve tried online, but something about being face to face with someone to talk it out vs typing it out, but trying to make sure I’m keeping stress down, happy up.
For now, it’s 1 AM and I’m going to call it good before someone emails in needing something lol. Night.
