Chicken Parmesan with Lemon Alfredo and Squash Noodles.

This weekend was full of fun activities. I feel a little guilty because we left our bubble and went to Temecula, Southern California wine country. We hung out with friends, including boat rides, vodka, carbs, and wine tasting. I check my blood sugar, and I have not gotten it under control today. There is good …

2/16 – Yay Blood Sugar!

Morning Blood Sugar This morning I woke up, and my blood sugar was 151, which is very unusual. Yesterday it was 214. I know I’ve told you guys this before, but my blood sugar is always very high in the morning, so I’m not sure what happened. I did take some Tylenol pm last night …

2/15 – Bad sleep, Keto fried rice, pepperoni and a walk

Nyquil When I tell you that I love NyQuil, I mean it. If I wasn’t married, I might ask it to marry me, or at least go steady. It calms me, gives me the only restful sleep that I feel like I ever get. But, I got up this morning and checked my blood sugar, …

2/14 – Chaffles and Walking

I’m going to have to force myself to write these every day again. I’m getting off track; between the pandemic and my husband’s birthday, I’ve been awful all week. You know you’re married, and there is a pandemic when you spend Valentine’s Day doing laundry and watching TV. It was kind of the best Valentine’s …

Mucinex and Vaccine

I just took a NyQuil cap of Mucinex. I really hope that you can’t overdose on Mucinex. I didn’t feel very good when I woke up this morning; I had a bit of a sore throat, headache, and stuffed up. Every time I feel this way, I feel like I might be dying. Yesterday, I …

Chaffles and BS

I’m becoming addicted to Tik Tok. It’s so much fun, but I have so much I have to figure out. My videos are, meh, I need to figure out the sound because, for some reason, I’m not getting the opportunity to lower the volume of the music so you can hear me more. I have …

Mimosas and regret

I’ve pretty much been pretending that I don’t have diabetes the past month and not paying attention to my body and taking care of myself, and that is going to change this month. This will be the month that I take my health back, barring any insurrections or civil wars. It may all be off …

Pizza Bowls.

I love pizza, but I can’t have it anymore. And I keep seeing these advertisements on TV and from pizza places that make things called pizza bowls. So I wanted to try to make my own pizza bowls. I took some leftover caramelized onions, Rao’s tomato sauce, ground beef, and peppers that I had sauteed. …

I know better, and I must do better.

I’m so mad at myself. I thought I would take the day and celebrate the inauguration; my husband asked if I wanted anything from this donut place called ‘Winchells,’ I said yes. I got a large apple fritter and a croissant with bacon, egg, and cheese. I checked my blood sugar in the middle of …

Who doesn’t love a good rack……of pork?

There are fewer things in life right now that make me happier than this rack of pork from Costco. At Thanksgiving, my husband and I went on a search for them. We asked the butcher at Costco if he thought they were going to be available this year, and he said no. Last year was …
