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.

Twice baked breakfast sweet potatoes!
Grilled Chicken with grilled veggies. Looks really good.
Avocado tuna salad. Over lettuce, yum!

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.

SNACK: Apple
