I'm going to go straight for the inappropriate (in a non perverse way) part of this post. I have diabetes, and dang it, I have the right to think this is one of the best things ever.
Ahem. Now that that is done, I can get to the actual content of this post. Today, in an effort to be less BLAH, I am going to simply list what I am thankful for.
- The food I ate today. It was delicious and a great deal of it was fresh.. And raw!*
- The fact that if I keep my carbohydrate intake at 30g net carb or lower per meal, I can skip bolus shots... Today I haven't had any and have had good numbers before meals!
- The "old tyme" photograph of my boyfriend and I sitting next to the monitor. It's a good photo. I should post it.
- My pretty-much very pleasant vacation two weeks ago.
- Seeing my younger cousins, aunt, and my (also diabetic) uncle in Indiana.
- Weighing 130 lbs but still having my normal clothing fit!
- The peaceful, almost serene walk I took today. (It was gently raining and the sky was a light grey.)
- Being ahead in one class, on-pace in two others, and only a bit behind in the fourth.
- Tutoring my mother's friend's son.
- A decent "harvest" of lima beans from the garden.
- Having a still-unopened jar of Artisana raw cacao butter...... I cannot wait to try it....
- Insulin analogs (especially since it is now derived from bacterium, not pigs or cows).
- My boyfriend, Wesley.
- ASPARAGUS! I love it!(Not my photograph. They're just cute.. And yummy... And low carb.)
And that ends that.
*I am attempting a dietary cleanse of sorts, half-inspired by The Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr. On vacation, you see, I ate tons of processed foods (and some non-processed, too, but still) and a lot of carbohydrate. I desire to lose a pound or two, eat healthy (which would mean, at the moment, more fresh/lightly cooked non-starchy veggies, fruits, and less grain products), and get my blood glucose numbers into the really good range (80 mg/dL or so before meals). Thus, I am going to eat high(er) raw- today was about 60%, I'd say- and avoid gluten (but only for a short while on that front).
