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 …

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 …

I’ve taken some NyQuil because I’m having issues sleeping. So, I don’t know how long I will last writing tonight but I’m going to do the best I can. First, I decided to download My Fitness Pal and track my macros. My goal the next few days is to just get an idea of what …

I had a very strange thing happen this afternoon. I took my blood sugar and the first reading was 267. That was weird to me because I did not eat anything horrible today. So, I took it two minutes later and it was 159. The only anomaly I can think of is that I washed …
