So I got on the scale yesterday & was not pleased with what I saw. And by not pleased, I mean I was ready to throw the scale out the window and scream like a madwoman, type of not pleased.
The scale in all it's digital glory showed me a number that I did not want to see.
I was pissed and sort of depressed. I mean, I'm still a good 12 pounds away from my highest weight, but my cute summer a-line skirts are too tight for comfort and that my friends, sucks!
But this morning was a new day, and I woke up to birds chirping and a blood sugar was 115.
I bolused for 30 grams of carbs and had my two mugs of coffee & my wholefoods 365 vanilla protein powder smoothie consisting of; 1 scoop of soy protein powder, 1 cup of vanilla silk soy milk, 5 ginormous frozen strawberries & 1/5 of a frozen banana.
IT. WAS. DELICIOUS.
Cut to my lunchtime #bgnow of 105, and all of a sudden, ( kind of like my friend Kim over at Texting My Pancreas,) it was acknowledging that small victory of finally getting the bolus right for my morning smoothie, that made me feel better!
True, I was running on the low side of 105, but I was no longer battling the post breakfast soy smoothie 200's that had rocked my world all week!
And with that little victory, I knew that I could fit back into those cute little a-line skirts and ROCK THEM with room to spare!
I just have to keep working on my "Diabetes Science Experiment" & not give up!
Do you have little victories as of late that inspire you to 'keep on, keeping on?"
