Well, I have a fasting blood sugar today of 147. Not as bad as I thought it may be considering my evening plans got changed and I so went off track of my food map for the day. I indulged a bit...I can't pass up a fried pickle lol. We went to Chilli's to eat dinner since we were out of town and it was getting late. I made great choices aside from those pickles! I went through 3 different flavors of ice tea to get and unsweetened version, but I am glad I kept sending it back. I was somewhat surprised the waitress tried to convince me a little simple syrup is not a big deal. I ended up telling her that I can not have any sugar. My hubby and 2 sons had suprised me with a mango ice tea...has sugar. I sent that back and the girl insisted the black berry ice tea did not have sugar so I ordered that. I tasted it and it was amazing but I asked her if there was sweetener in it. Then she told me about the simple syrup. That's when I told her I can't have sugar and to bring me water. Then she said they had unsweetened ice tea. To which my family specifically asked for to start and re- asked about the mango tea and she said directly it was unsweetened. Maybe, and I was more than nice and patient, she learned that when people ask for unsweetened tea that it means NO SUGAR of any kind. lol ahhh. Again, I was nice. She might not have realized? I gave her the benefit of the doubt. Anyway around it, the meal was really great. And even with eating the fried pickles, my blood sugar wasn't way out of control! Yeah me!
I am beginning to figure out my food staples, which is helpful for me. I need to run to the store and replace some of them.
Hmmm Mother's day weekend for me...confusing. I am taking in time with my kids when I see them. They aren't around much. I am not sure my oldest recalls it is Mother's day this weekend. My middle on asked me this morning if I wanted to do anything, but he wont be around to do it with me lol so I said not really. Tomorrow looks uneventful. I take my middle son back to college after he gets off work to finish his exams then move back at the end of this next week. My youngest son (12) is being sassy. He thinks he is being cute, which he is, but I have to correct him and let him know what he is doing is not ok and is disrespectful at times. He apologizes. I am lucky to have all 3 kids around off and on this weekend and that is enough for me. I love being a mom.
So, it is supposed to thunderstorm here today. It is already severely windy and I heard a crack of thunder awhile ago. Other than soaking up time with my hubby and kids when they are around I need to move a desk to my son's apartment, shop for replacement staples for my food, and take my middle son back to college. Other than that, pretty normal around here.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
