My blog today is about honesty after the holiday and what is ok.
I honestly ate what ever I wanted but still kept within the teaspoon/tablespoon limit I gave myself. Despite the limit I put on myself my blood sugar went wonky and today I feel tired, sore and some what queasy. I went back on my normal routine yesterday. But I successfully got it out of my system to splurge over the holiday.
Today, I believe I will allow my body to rest, recuperate, rehydrate, replenish anything it needs. Start the process over again. I wont feel bad or guilty about it either because it is what my body needs to get back on track.
I kept busy and moving every day I was with family. Even taking the kids and my father and husband to 4 museums in one day! I enjoyed that, but mostly time with my nephew. He is at that age (14) where he thinks he knows it all but can't figure out why he can't get me to bye everything he says lol. I only had to put him in check once for smarting off to me. He is not allowed to do that.
I checked my weight yesterday. It of course went up, but not too bad. I can work with it. It is my blood sugar, inflammation, and resting my body needs to calibrate again. SO! I am going to listen to my body. And give it what it wants today so tomorrow I can get moving again. Sometimes you just have to do that.
My family visit was very nice. The only Thanksgiving where we felt like a somewhat happy normal family. No one ignored me this time. People helped me and complimented me. It was nice! I even got a "I notice you lost weight!" from my ma! That is a first. I told her that she is the first person to notice and actually say anything.
Now, after a week of splurge..well a few days...it is time to recharge. Time to tell my body "ok, rest today. But tomorrow is the first day to my next 6 month check up and I want to be doing even better! I want a lower weight, a lower A1c and a lower blood pressure!" I know in my head, heart and soul...I will make what I want happen.
Welcome to December everyone! I pray everyone had a nice, safe holiday!
