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 …

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 …

I call myself the Self Made Diabetic because I know that I had something to do this. In the last 46 years of my life, I’ve not taken care of myself, which caused this illness. This morning Jean Valjean was in the bedroom watching a zoom funeral. He was sniffing and then laughing. It made …

Saturday is supposed to be cheat day, and boy, did I cheat! I thought I’d be good and wait until 3:30 pm to eat. We were ordering tacos from this place in LA called Kraken Tacos. I dreamt about these taco’s all week; they are a real treat. They were supposed to arrive at 3:30 …

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 …

September 16, 2020 – Chuck roast and cauliflower risotto.

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. …

September 14, 2020 – Chicken Lasagna

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 …

What I know about diabetes so far…..
