Well today I woke up the crab monster. I am stressed out. Not in a way I can not handle but in a way I know I have control over other people's decisions. I got on the scale and saw 183.6. I attribute that to the whole bag of hershey kisses and Venti chestnut praline frap I had from starbucks yesterday. Oh and french fries with dinner. ONE STEP AT A TIME! I was bad yesterday, yes. But I tried to taper off through the day and it paid off. I had a fasting blood sugar of 105 this morning! SO that is one good thing. I am doing something different today to really try to get my cravings gone and get back on track with food. I made coffee today- NO STARBUCKS! I only had whole milk so I used 2 T of that with the coffee and 2 packets of no calorie sweetener. I have a gallon of no calorie lemonade made and ice for cold drinks. I need flavor still at this point. I have 2 more gallons of water on stand by. I was going to make myself 2 burger patties but decided on just one for now because I used the milk instead of cream. I AM really hungry so I may end up making 2 patties. I have sugar free jello in the frig if I want a sweet treat and I plan to make the family eggs tonight for dinner. I got on my husband today for having zero support and I need it so badly. He hugged me and is trying to do better. He is on call starting today which has me on edge because I know I wont see him much for the next week.
ON THE TREAT MAKING FRONT....I am making treats today. As many as I am able. I will shrink? wrap them with my machine and seal them. I don't know if that is what it is called but that is what I am calling it right now until I can actually think of what it is called where you suck all the air out and seal it. I got all my fancy containers out so I portion it, seal it, package it to give it all away. I got set up right now to make peanut clusters, divinity, fudge and I need to make Christmas crack, dipped ritz both with peanut butter and caramel, turtles, gooey butter cookies both vanilla and lemon. I had dough made up for suprise cookies, peppermint sugar cookies and ginger bread cookies. I need to make no bake cookies. White chocolate macadamia nut cookies and kiss cookies (need to get more kisses cuz I ate 2 bags). I think I have more sweets to make too but right now my list isn't with me. I have trail mix to make and I was going to make spiced nuts too. I have a couple types of seasoned crackers to make but I may make those nuts and trail mix and crackers closer to Christmas and give them to one of my sons and his girlfriend.
Once I got all t his stuff made I can get it out and away from me.
I am going to be on track today. I am going to have a successful day today. I am on track again. I am going to stay that way.
