This Enlightened me, Educated me, and Changed me

This is so worth the read.  Be good to yourself and take the time.  Michael Witty is a super human being.  I hope Ms. Deen takes him up on his offer.

Frick and Frack

So how goes the blood glucose testing, the eating, the blood glucose testing, the carb counting, and the occasional weigh in?

Fasting number

I miss the days of just grabbing something to eat...believing with all of my heart that it was healthy for me.  For Me.

Cheese?  out. I love you Feta Cheese but you must have been the cause of my 30 pt. blood glucose spike after breakfast.  Yes, I had a Greek salad for breakfast. Tomatoes, cukes, some spinach, some onion, 2 TB extra virgin olive oil, and fresh squeezed lemon juice..and some pepper AND 1/2 cup jasmine BROWN rice. Of course, it could have been the tsp of creamer in my coffee..or my coffee.  Testing will drive a girl frickin nuts.  Frack!  I bet it was those 5 Kalamata Olives I chopped & topped it with.

 I made a salad like this to last 4 days.  I guess I'll have to pick out all of the Feta,    and those olives too.  Feta first...test next.. then I'll determine how to proceed. ~photo from food network because mine turned out like crap

(oh..did I tell ya?  I gained 3 lbs.  Not to worry lovies... me left foot probably weighs that much.  I'll stop watching my glucose and it will fall off..eventually)

Need a lift?

I always always have matzoh balls in in the freezer..for days like this when I need a lift.  I feel a bit queasy for some reason and a hot bowl of soup always helps.  I also keep chicken soup in the freezer.  I recommend it.

My Super Power

I had NO idea that I had super hero powers.  Not until about 1:30 a.m.  It actually woke me up from a deep sleep.

I hurried into the bathroom to investigate this feeling I was having...I never turn on the light as not to disturb my husband.

Now, my next door neighbor's bathroom is directly across from our master bath.  Maybe it is their master bath as well.  I know this because on a quiet day, when the wind is blowing just right..I can hear their toilet flush.  I guess they can hear ours too.

So the second I sat down I farted like I never knew possible, SO LOUD...and the neighbor's bathroom light went on instantly!  I am not kidding.  It was immediate.

How to harness such power..such energy?  For good..or for bad?

My dear husband suggested I light The White House Christmas Tree every year.
