Stretching felt nice today. My body is dealing with fatigue. And it looks like the sun just may be showing today.

I have been trying to not go grocery shopping. Trying to go through the stuff we have in the freezer and pantry. Tonight I will have to really get creative. Not sure what I am going to do. I am fighting going to the store. Also fighting sweet cravings too. I beat both yesterday. I know I can today too.

My brother called yesterday. He never does that. He sounded down and not happy. I spoke to him for a long time and he sounded better by the time he needed to go. I hope he is feeling better. My mom's birthday today. She is 72 today. She just got over bacterial pneumonia. She gets her blood work and physical today. She seems to be doing better than last year, just more .... opinionated.

I think my body is asking me for rest today. I am going to do my best to honor that. I feel guilt for honoring that but I feel it is really what it needs. I don't do myself any favors running myself into the ground. Tonight if I feel more energy, I will exercise more. It will pass I am sure.

Doing well with my eating still. My fasting blood sugar was 124! That is great and right where I am aiming. During the day it is staying around 77. That is perfect too. So I am conquering getting my blood sugar on track. Takes a ton of discipline with eating though. I am happy for myself and proud of myself for fixing this part of my life.

    Happy B-day to your mom! I'm glad she's getting over being sick. I'm also happy your brother reached out to you and you got to help lift his spirits. You're doing an amazing job with you blood sugar!! Keep up the good work! And try not to feel guilty when your body is begging for mercy. Self-care, as you know, is a good thing. Happy Thursday!
