My Nutrition Notes day 2

Monday, Oct 8-

I skipped supper. I did indeed go through 2 pint size containers of ice cream--Ben & Jerry's coffee heath crunch AND Starbuck's Java Chip Cappuccino then measured blood sugar about one hour later getting 142???!! I wandered if these indiscretions would blow my sugar sky high. What I learned is that they do not (I got 156 after oatmeal). But it DOES pack on the pounds and calories and DOES increase it over the 140 spike that I am to avoid. Because I am looking for a complete lifestyle system, I may have learned that the lower glycemic index desserts such as peanut M&M and some ice creams can be used but in portion control amounts when I am ready.

Exercise effects my blood sugar so well that it will be key to my lifestyle. See my entry for Tuesday, Oct 9!! Basically, I woke with a fasting of 108. I walked/jogged for 1 mile last night around 10pm. I had 2 eggs and one broccoli spear for breakfast and measured a half hour postprandial read of 137. Then I went to 45 minutes of spin class. My immediate blood sugar after the spin class was 104--lower than my fasting. Then, after half hour more of heavy weights, it was 93!!!!

Exercise is my new drug. I did not realize what a DRASTIC IMPROVEMENT I can get. I'll keep playing with the glucometer to determine what works best for me.

2:51 pm 2 h PP 102 following 3 oz chicken breast only. i walked briskly to stop sign and back--about 10 minutes. Then I've been pressure spraying the driveway. I feel hungry.

5:30 pm 100 about 2h PP tuna salad with 8 pecans, tomato, salad leaves no dressing except for Hellmans in tuna. I did not eat much tuna because it tasted fishy.
