Month: December 2018

Grown men do cry, and it’s okay.

Have you ever been in a crowded room but felt like no one was there? The last few days have been a blur, my dear friend passed away on Christmas Eve, I learned about it Christmas morning as I was starting to prep dinner for my fiancé’s family. That’s how I felt on Christmas Day …

December 23 and 24- Christmas Eve Blood Sugar…..

It’s Christmas Eve and my blood sugar is a mess. It was 185 this morning and 219 tonight. I have been pounding some water with hopes that I would get it to go down but I also may have had a few bags of cheezits. I can’t wait until all of this holiday crap is …

December 22- Grilled cheese or Salad?

Well, I started off yesterday with good intentions, that counts for something right? We decided to go to the movies to see ‘Second Act’ with Jennifer Lopez. It was okay but I’m getting tired of movies that have the same plot. Anyway, instead of getting something that had a lot of carbs in it at …

December 21- TV Taping fails………

I’m beginning to think that this is becoming a blog about how to get diabetes, instead of a blog about how I’m recovering. I do realize that it’s the holiday season. I have to give myself a little bit of a break, especially with all of the drama that I’ve been going through. This is …

December 20- Vodka…….

I promised I’d write every night. Here I am! I’m not going to be dishonest, I have three vodka drinks this evening. I had some rough day today, I found out some tough news about my friend. How I dealt with it was going to the bar, eating chicken wings and drinking vodka. Here is …

December 19 – The Cheezit’s won…..

Today cheezit’s won. I got home, after being exhausted all day and I ripped into four one-ounce bags of cheezit’s. I regret every minute of it, at least I regret two of the four bags. I’m an emotional wreck because I’m still waiting on news about my friend. I got about four hours of sleep …

December 18

  A week ago tonight I got the news that one of my best friends had a massive stroke. Then on Thursday, we had to fly to Orlando for a work thing. The work thing was a blast, we got to go to DisneyWorld for two days. But, hanging over my head, was the news …

It’s been a few days. You know when it’s been a few days that I’ve fallen off the wagon. I’ve definitely let myself go this past weekend. We’ve had a friend in town and we celebrated two birthdays. I tried to be good but that all went out the window with the first delicious cocktail …

What I know about diabetes so far…..

In the simplest terms here are a few things that I know about controlling diabetes so far. You need to eat a low carb diet/keto diet. If your blood sugar is too high go on a walk and drink a lot of water, that usually brings it down. Stay calm. If you are an anxious …

December 6

It has been a cold rainy day here in California. Having lived in Los Angeles for almost three years I’m not used to this but the last two weeks between the rain in Florida and the rain here I’m tired of it, but at least it’s not snow. Today for breakfast I had three eggs …
