Negative tests, fried chicken, and a new day.

These are challenging times for a hypochondriac. The end is always one sneeze away, but the pandemic has made that even more of a challenge. Since the pandemic, I go out in the world, a few days later I’m home and a sore throat, body chills begin. I go get tested. The good news is …

Struggle Monday

Tylenol PM is by my side, poised and ready to assist in a sleep unlike I was able to obtain last night. I have struggle days, and today was one of them. I woke every two hours or so to use the restroom last night; I think I may have given too much trust to …

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, …

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 …

12/14 – Apple fitness plus, and ice cream.

Clearly, by looking at the graph below, I let myself go a little bit last week. That average number is way too high and I need to do something about that this week. Lunch today was leftovers from the last few days. I downloaded Apple Fitness Plus, which was released today. I tried two of …

12/11/20 – The Prom and a cheat dinner.

Can you believe it’s the 11th of December?  I sure can’t!  I had a good day today, a quick day at work and then I worked on some writing.  And then!!!!!!  We watched ’The Prom’ on Netflix.  Man, do I miss the theater.  I was an emotional mess for some reason.  I think my husband …

12/10/20 Eff Diabetes

How the eff do I go from 175 when I wake up to 190 at 11 am? I’m so fed up and done with diabetes. This sucks. I was so fed up this morning with these numbers. I’ve been trying to eat better and drink lots of liquid and this happens. The funny thing is …

12/8/20 Walking, deli sandwiches, and pork roast!

Today was a much better day than yesterday. Except, I did not sleep as well last night as I would have liked to. I woke up with a bit of a backache, but that is not unusual. Oh, and I have occasional shooting pains in my sides. Damn, I’m so dramatic. I think I’m fine. …

12/7/20 – I want to hide.

I told you all that I would write a post every day, and dammit, I’m going to do it. You all need to see the good, the bad, and the ugly. I had a cocktail at 3:45 pm today. I didn’t drink alone; I’m not that sad. I’ve been kind of a mess, as you …
