When I get a comment on my “Don’t fear the pizza…” in the form of a pingback, and I’m like what? So I click the link: http://www.probablyrachel.com/october-best-betes-blog-awards/ and find that I got one of these:
- parked in furthermost spot, gathered groceries, no cart, toted bags back to furthermost space.
- Cleaned and swept porch, vacuumed house, fed chickens. (chores = movement = exercise)
- toted and stacked firewood in basement 1/2 rick.
I also wondered how aware everyone is of the importance of food logs. Combined with one’s meter, they are an important tool to have in your arsenal in your fight against your diabetes. Each and every one of us are unique individuals. Testing our blood sugar prior to, one and two hours after eating is the best way to find which foods work best or which foods we might want to stay away from.
We owe it to ourselves to be better patients. We owe it to ourselves to become better educated about our own bodies so that with the help of our doctors we can find the best treatment plan suited to our individual needs.
Talking lifestyle change with the Doc can be scary, but when we show them that we are serious with a food log and a loaded meter, and progress, they tend to go from scary to supportive.
