Last week I dramatically changed my diet and was waiting to see how it would payoff. I figured a slightly lower A1C in March would be the result, it still may be but I got confirmation that it works this past weekend. By having a diet that is full of grains, legumes and fruit I have tweaked how my body responds to insulin and by eating healthy grains I have changed how my meal time shots react. This weekend I decided to let myself go just a little bit. Two slices of pizza, sausage and potatoes, and some cookies are not part of my normal diet but they worked their way on to my plate this weekend. The weird thing was that my blood sugars didn't react as they should. Usually that kind of food would have my blood sugar in the mid 200s and fighting to get it down.
This past weekend my blood sugar enjoyed hanging out below 200 all weekend. It wasn't until 8:00pm tonight when I tested and was 222 that I saw a blood sugar above 200. Having very respectable blood sugars all weekend allowed me to enjoy everything about the parties. Seeing "Care Bear" and "Sharky" open presents with a blood sugar of 140 is so much better than watching with a blood sugar of 240. I really don't want to see Joel the Lump of Coal on Thursday, I will be getting back to work tomorrow, back to the gym at 5am and eating healthy. I need the training for a big race next fall!!! News on that will be coming in the very near future!!!
