Whole 30 — Day 11
Day 11 has started off with some not-so-great news on the job front for ES and so I’m sad for him. He’s so smart and intuitive, if an IT staff doesn’t want him, they’re stupid. I would totally kick them in the shins if I saw them on the street.
I’m working on reframing the experience and seeing it as an excellent opportunity surrender to situations that I cannot control. I would love to run down to Chick-Fil-A and get a milkshake to make me feel better, but that’s not going to happen. So, I’m practicing being comfortable experiencing discomfort.
Today also happens to be a major diabetes fail. I went to sleep with normal BG and woke up at 345 mg/dl. WTF? How does it rise so much with nothing happening? I thought maybe my site got kinked so I changed it out and my level is hovering around 200 mg/dl right now. UGH!!! Just yesterday I had this all figured out. Out of the 22 different variables that affect blood sugar I’m thinking there are only a few that could be impacting me: hormones (I have my period right now), weather related (storm came in last night), bad insulin (maaaybe??), or equipment problems with my pump. I guess I’ll switch the whole thing out when I get home. Fingers crossed this is just a temporary blip on the radar.
I did some meal planning today and I’m planning on making the following recipes this weekend for my meals.
TODAY I’M PROUD THAT: I didn’t let sadness or dissapoinment dictate my eating choices.
BREAKFAST: Raw cashews
LUNCH: Beef chili over salad greens with mixed fruit
DINNER: We’ll either go to Chipotle or have eggs.
