Good morning! I had the best nights sleep! I needed that more than anyone could ever know. Blood sugar is over 200 this morning. But I feel good. I got up and did my morning routine and sat down to check my blood at fasting level. I asked myself something my doctor taught me about a couple years ago. Am I chasing my blood sugar numbers? My answer is no. That is a good thing. He taught me that checking all the time is chasing your numbers and although it is a good thing to check at certain times during the day to see how you are doing in reaction to certain things, it is not a good thing to base your life on those numbers. You are really not doing yourself any favors by doing this. After that talk I changed my attitude about my numbers and I started doing really great. I believe my numbers are up because of an adjustment in medication and a need to up my units. I have accepted the fact I am eating right, exercising to the best of my ability and sometimes the body does what it does no matter how proactive I am.
I ordered myself a cute tank maxi dress yesterday morning before I left. I had picked one up about a month or so ago and loved how it looked on me. I am short and it wasn't too long for me so I ordered another but in a different look. As kind of a way of saying "good job!" to myself for the hard work I have been putting in this week. I need to ride an hour today and know I can get that done no problem. I have some major stretching to do too. I think all the boys will be here tonight so stir fry is on the menu instead of going out I will make a deconstructed version of stir fry so everyone can eat what they want.
My middle son is home from college this weekend. He is working more often in this town. He isn't in the best moods and all I can do is be nice and not engage in his crabby comments. He is tired. Needs sleep. Too over worked at school. I keep telling him there is only a few weeks left for him then he can start soaking up a less stressful life and just focus on work for the summer.
The chores around here are pretty much done, just have laundry to do. Looks to be a fairly relaxing weekend. Aside from the biking and stretching I will do today, I get tomorrow off! I think taking yesterday away from exercising after pushing myself all week was much needed. I thought I would feel guilty about it, but I don't I am grateful I took that pressure off myself.
Have a beautiful day and great weekend all!
