October 3, 2020

We went to San Diego yesterday for my sister-in-laws birthday celebration. There is a fantastic restaurant called Puesto that they wanted to go to. Their tacos are incredible, and I was so impressed that they had a lettuce wrap option for the taco’s so I could still eat right. The only thing that sucked was …

October 1, 2020

As I pointed out last night, I have this friend, who, as soon as she heard what my blood sugar was on Saturday, decided she would be my Dr. She will be forever called Dr. Evil. She messages me every day for an update on what my blood sugar is, plus what I’ve eaten, and …

September 17, 2020 – Lettuce eat sandwiches.

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 …

Weekly Goal

My goal for the next five days is to drink one gallon of liquid each day. This can include coffee, crystal light drinks, water. At least 64 ounces of it has to be water. I know from the last few years that staying hydrated is extremely important in diabetes management. So, last night before bed, …

F&ck Diabetes!!!!

I’m pissed.  I really wanted there to be no reason for me to have this site.  I wanted to give it up. I decided a few days ago that I wasn’t going to post then, I went to the doctor.  I went because I’ve been having some stomach pain, gas, bloating, stuff that you don’t …

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 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 …

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 …
