September 18, 2020 – RBG and Earthquakes

I started this post yesterday, on the 18th and then a bunch of things started happening, RBG passed away, and then we had an earthquake. The earth was quaking with sadness. You all, it was the weirdest thing. I was on the phone with a great friend who lives in Burbank; he said; we’re having …

lunch I love sandwiches, the kind with lots of meat, just like I used to get at the deli when I lived on Long Island. The thing about sandwiches is that they have bread, duh. Many places say that they do lettuce wraps, but none like Mike’s Deli here in Los Angeles. It’s the only …

lunch I didn’t eat until 2 pm again today. I’m really liking this way of eating. I feel better when I eat this way. One of these days i’ll have to weigh myself and see if this is making a big difference. I had the left over chicken lasagna from the other day and veggies …

Nightmare JVJ had a nightmare last night. All of a sudden, I heard him screaming, and I had to wake him up. The strange thing is that he dreamed of losing a passport, and he never loses anything. I’m the ’loser’ of the family; if my head weren’t attached, I’d be asking where it was. …

Lunch today was leftover salad from last night and a meat stick. I have no idea how else to describe it. I think I found it at Costco a month or two ago; I felt like I needed more than just the salad. dinner We had been gifted cooked chicken cutlets. I was debating what …

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 …

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 …

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 …
