Chaffle Pepperoni Pizza

There is a long list of things that you can’t have when you discover that you have diabetes. Let me rephrase that; you can have them, but they will eventually kill you. I’m talking about things like rice, cakes, cookies, sugar, bread, and PIZZA. I have a love-love relationship with pizza. When I was younger, …

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, …

Keto Tuna Melt Tik Toker

I’m feeling much better today. First, I slept like a baby. When I say sleep like a baby, I mean, I slept, woke up multiple times and then went back to bed again. I felt rested when I woke up, though, which is unusual for me. Usually, I’m dragging like crazy. This week I get …

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. …

This haiku about carbs is perfect. I have a friend coming over tonight with a pasta dinner. I said yes to this because I figured I would just not eat most of the day and then try to not eat too much. Too much food I fasted most of the day yesterday and then ate …

12/12 – 12/13 Christmas, Target, and eggs.

I meant to write yesterday but zoom Christmas Parties, and hours of shopping got in the way. The night ended with more than a little bit of vodka and singing Broadway show tunes. I mean, every evening should end that way, right? For dinner last night we had marinated chicken legs from Costco and broccoli …

12/9/20 – Dreams, chicken, and cheesecake.

I often have dreams as soon as I fall asleep. I always go to bed before my husband; although I try to stay awake to say goodnight to him, I often don’t make it. I dreamt that someone was trying to get into our apartment while we were sitting there watching tv. I woke up …

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. …

A1C Update

Every person with diabetes that I know cheats after they’ve gotten their A1C read. It just is a matter of fact. The same is true for me. A week and a half ago, I got my blood work done, and then I decided that I wanted to cheat a little. In the week since then, …
