Red Light, Green Light

Stop.


Stop right there.


Stop, and immerse yourself in the sights,smells,and sensory experiences of summer. Because it now IS summer, despite a frigid May, and a extremely dubious June. I'm sure you were wondering if was ever going to get here. The thermometer confirms it to be true.(80+degrees,finally)

Go.

Go drink diet coke by the case, I will be. Especially since I'll be going cold turkey
(not by choice!) for two weeks.(following tonsillectomy) That will be hard,if I don't get caffeine in some form I will turn into THAT person,the one you would pay good money not to ever have contact with. I have alot of sympathy for people who cannot quit smoking because I am just as addicted to my caffeinated diet coke.

Go Live Long, and may all(or most) your blood sugars be under 140 mg/dl(or whatever range you consider good) this holiday weekend!


(and I'm going to California and Florida,so next post will be in a couple of weeks)

Oh man - no Diet Coke for TWO WEEKS?! That's crazy talk there. I'll double my intake for you.

You, too.

I've been making progress on improving my Type 2 blood sugars, but today was a bad day.

For lunch, I ate two ham-on-rye sandwiches from Jason's Deli. I foolishly thought they would be low-carb, but the rye pushed my blood glucose well over 200.

Then this evening, a neighbor borrowed my can opener. When she returned it, she brought me a slice of watermelon and a slice of apple pie, both of which I devoured rapidly.

I'm not looking forward to taking my blood glucose reading in a little while.
