sorry i haven’t updated. i’ve been kind of busy, and haven’t had the time to write a full post, so i keep putting it off. i probably won’t even get done with it right now either, as nate is due to arrive any minute.
the class went ok. and it’s the only class i have to take – a one time four hour class. i learned how to take my blood with the accucheck pen. not fun. my fingers really hurt. but hopefully i’ll get used to it soon. i am to take my blood 4x a day – 1 before breakfast, and 3 others 2 hours after my big meals. i learned a new way to eat. i am counting my carbs in an interesting way – i get certain servings (1 serving of carbs is 15 grams) per each meal – breakfast, lunch, dinner, and three snacks. i am allowed up to 11 oz of protein per day, and 4 servings of fat (1 serving of fat is 5 grams). yeah, so interesting. so far it’s going OK but not great. mainly because my fasting levels have not been under 96 like they should be. they have been like 110 or 104. sigh. hopefully i can get this worked out. but my after meal numbers have been great.
this is not going to be easy, but you know, there are MANY more things in life that are worse. i was being such a baby about it before, but i’m really over it now. i haven’t had ONE piece of candy since wednesday. this is really good for me, as i’m a sugar fiend! i want to take care of myself and my baby, and i want to do what’s right. so i CAN and WILL get through this. and maybe, just maybe, i’ll be able to follow the plan even after josiah is born, so that i can live a more healthy eating lifestyle.
jerry and i picked up our new glasses today. i am not wearing mine right this second because i HATE what new glasses make me feel like…i just HATE it. which could be why it’s been 7 years since i had new ones….BLUSH. you will be quite surprised at how different i look in them. they are a MUCH smaller size than the ones i have (had) before.
tonight jeremiah and i are going to a pool party. and i don’t have a suit. i tried some on today but i looked like a SLUT. my breasts don’t fit right. so i guess i won’t be able to swim. 🙁 i will be taking pics tho, so i hope jeremiah has fun!!
well gonna get going before nate gets here and KC wakes jeremiah up!!!
hugs and have a great day, everyone!!!

I just bought a decent one at Target. I have been putting it off as well b/c of how I look but the one I picked out is actually nice. Try Target.
I’m glad the class went ok and you are feeling better about everything. I have the same problem with my fasting numbers. Hang in there…you will get there.

I ate a good portion of protein with all my meals and snacks. If I remember correctly protein helps the sugars release slower. So does fiber so I ate a lot of 100% whole wheat bread. One of my favorite snacks was toasted wheat bread with peanut butter. That’s great you have two hours before testing after meals, I had one hour after each meal. For the first couple of weeks I checked my sugar after snacks to make sure I wasn’t going over. With the diet plan I didn’t gain any extra weight so it was a good thing. My problem was afterwards I felt this need to make up for all the good foods and sugar I had missed. I put twenty pounds on like it was nothing. EEERRR.
Have fun at the pool party! Talk to you later
I hope you have fun at the pool party! Sorry that the new diet
