Inch by inch

Every day, the BG is trending lower. I can see it in that program. This morning's prebreakfast/fasting one was 116, which is the lowest it's been - I have a couple of lower ones, but at a different part of the day. I'm feeling vaguely nauseated, and my concentration is off, but that's improving, too. I'm still not eating enough according to the program I'm using, and I think I'm going to add a bit more carbs between meals.

I think I also an exercise spike. I had a real workout on Thursday (I still feel it) and the BG shot up to 191. I'd taken care to eat dinner beforehand, and I had some when I got home, and in an hour it went down.

Is there any way to prevent that, or deal with it? Or will things settle down once I get under control?

Anyway, from what I can see, there's steady improvement, and that's what I should be seeing.

I do have a couple of challenges - tonight, we're celebrating our wedding anniversary by taking our immediate family and some friends to a nice restaurant - a dairy one. I'm pretty much figuring that if I have the cream of garlic soup (it's about as yum as it sounds), I can't have a cappuchino after. I also figure I'll find some way to get rid of the extra food before I start eating. Anyway, they have interesting fish and salads, and I can live without the sushi. But I'll miss their peppered fruit compote with vanilla ice cream. Also as yum as it sounds.

Tomorrow will be harder. We're going to a wedding. That means a smorgesbord before the ceremony and a sit-down dinner (with total strangers - no way is this mixed seating) after. The smorg will be at what I'm trying to establish as my normal dinnertime. And the dinner - well, the smorg will be healthier. But sitting and not eating looks awful and wastes food. Any ideas on how to handle that?


Best wishes for continued improvement!
