I made some really bad food choices the past 8 days, and it's now time to fess up… The husband and I ate dinner out for the past 8 days, I was totally out of control… Carbs, carbs and more carbs… I didn't journal the food I put into my mouth and was not watching the BS's…

Ok, those 8 days are behind me and tomorrow is almost here… It time to sit down and face the facts, that I can't keep doing this… Only I can change it and make it right…

Tomorrow I will check my BS's, journal what I put into my mouth and get on that bike for 3, 20 minute sessions… Tomorrow I will take care of ME!!!

I ate a whole thing of oreo cookies then today was someones birthday so I had cake. It happens. I've had many good days & I know I need to get back to having better choices in the house, Diet Jello works for me, Diet puddings help. I do enjoy Carrots & bluecheese, when I started I did whole grain gold fish because a serving is like 40 pc's.

It happens, What normally helps me is they told me to choose the carb first, so If I wanted the cookies, first stick with the serving size, then skip the breads, ect. work around the carb.

I'm posting this to myself to. I also like international house of coffee sugar free, mocha instant coffee. It gives me some flavor to.

best wishes, I'll take care of me tomarrow too!! Great idea!

thanks
Diane

First off don't be so hard on yourself. Everyone falls off the wagon at some point. Don't look at it as failure, look at it as a speedbump on the road.

You are in charge of your health and how your diabetes is handled, so pick yourself up, test, test, test and keep a food log. Learn the trends and what spikes your BG. Everyone has a moment of weakness, but it's important what you do today and tomorrow not yesterday.

lol lol lol
I think we all do it at some point.
The day come when I just need to have something I just wish to have and on that day I do yes I just do it but I cover for it and work out a bit longer and may be a little harder.I still right it all down and test.
I never give up on me I know I need to have a treet every now and then or I will not be happy.
So if you need a treet have one and enjoy it, just take care of it and cover for it with insulin or a harder workout.
Best wishes

I agree.

We all break down at some point and inhale the cookies in front of you (I did and I'm currently on the elliptical as I type). You just have to get back on track and work harder than before. Don't beat yourself up. You can do it. :D

Thanks everyone!!! I'm back on track today, except, I need to some more testing strips… My husband is self-employed and we don't have prescriptions with our policy… Even though we pay high enough for the policy… One day at a time!!!

It's crazy how expensive testing strips are. Which ones do you use? I think strips are cheaper through Amazon if your policy doesn't cover it. Ehh… I don't know much about health insurance so I don't really know what I'm talking about. LOL.

But yes, one step at a time.
