So I've done pretty well so far on my 3 day-ish diet. I've managed to cut down on my calories, get in a good run or two the last couple of days, and today I even did yoga! Me, yoga! Tonight I prepared a meal of pork and steamed vegetables. The olive oil added more calories than we needed, but it was good. And then the doorbell rings.
Remember those chocolate chunk cookies you bought from that little girl selling them for her school? Well darned if she didn't show up at the worst possible time, right after a meal of lean protein and steamed vegetables. And then, right before me, were rows upon rows of perfectly portioned balls of chocolate chunk heaven. I opened the box and looked upon them like Rottweiler on a pet rabbit.
I closed up the box as best as I could and put them into the freezer for another time. I've got too far to go at this point to enjoy even one chocolate chunk cookie. Not CHIP, but CHUNK.
I have been enjoying the fantastic blood sugars that have come along with eating better and working out more. I don't think I've even gone over 200 mg/dl since Saturday, which for me is pretty good, especially lately. I'll never forget my new endo telling me that he wanted me to go to a diabetes education class. Me? Diabetes education?? I could only offer the feeble defense that I knew WHAT to do, I just wasn't doing it. I am looking forward to that day when I return and show him my sub-7 A1c.
As long as no more kids show up at my door with more cookies.
