Blood sugar this morning is 200 even. Yikes! For me that is really high, I'm usually in the 130's or lower for fasting before breakfast!! Not good, so must go get on the treadmill and walk to bring it down. No wonder I'm not feeling good!

So today I start back to measuring and planning and tracking everything that I eat. I was doing this for a while, but got frustrated and stopped, because I kept just eating the same things over and over and got really tired of doing that. This time I plan to eat variety, lots of raw freggies, and really watch my carb intake. I'm going to start taking my blood sugar readings more often and really get a better picture of how I'm doing throughout the day.

I'm getting back on the treadmill today, I haven't for the past two days, even though I've gotten over being sick and have been able to. I've made excuses and delayed and that is not good. I gained back one pound and I'm hoping that I can make up for it over the next few days so it goes away by weigh in day! I don't want to have a gain this week because of this and eating off plan yesterday.

I was talking to DH about what my generic metabolic rate is according to this site I found, it is 1,300 for my age, height and weight. I plan on researching and figuring out how that plays into how many calories I eat every day. DH wants to send me to an exercise physiologist/nutritionist and see what my actual metabolic rate is and have them come up with a plan for exercise for me at home with what I have already, and when I should have snacks, when I should eat, all that jazz. It's obvious what I'm doing is not working, so he's willing to spend the money to figure out what we need to be doing. DH is so awesome. I totally agree that would be amazing to get done. And if he's willing to shell out the dough for it, I'll be more than happy to go. I'm going to talk to my doctor about getting a referral or if there is one she trusts. The dietitian I went to for my diabetic counseling was not worth the copay. She didn't look at my food diary, only glanced at my BS log, and told me things that were so generic, I'd already read everything she said on the internet when I was researching. I want to go to someone who is going to take the time to individualize things for me.

Well, I'm off to go work out to get my BS down so that I'll feel better!
Keep Sparking! emoticon

    My blood sugar last week was higher than norm too! I am sorry your diabetic counselor wasn't helpful. I think diabetes management is an art not a science! I am through tweaking my food plan, back to basics!

    Keeping it simple- today I am making a vegetable curry. I have never had curry before but had a bunch of veggies in fridge I didn't want to throw away. I am struggling to keep the carb levels even on my meals. Thank goodness for the Nutrition tracker. Back to the meal planning!
