Talking to myself

Thursday, January 16, 2020

Hey there Universe. It's been a while. 2019 is over...and I survived it. By "survived" I mean I subsisted mostly on chocolate and puffy peppermints for the better part of 2 months. It did wonders for my stress levels (hello dopamine). It also wreaked havoc on my HBA1c. that's a thing. I was drinking an ayurvedic blend as well (hot water and spices - cinnamon, pepper, cardamom, cloves, allspice) it tasted great, but in a weird way I can't help but think it helped throw my levels off. Meh. In any event, I upgraded to a Fitbit Inspire. I still have my Leaf, tho, because it has some cool free features in the app. I can't wait to get back to cooking over the fire. Stewed blackberries are a favorite!

    I know a couple people who LOVE their Fitbit and said it helped them with their fitness goals. Hopefully it will help you too. By the way, stewed blackberries sound delicious - yum!

    Very easy to fall for the trap of sweets around the holidays!

    Very easy to get sidelined by chocolate & sweets, I can relate. So I bought some sugar free candy to have as backup for week moments; also diet jello. Mostly eat fresh & dried fruit now, limit 2 a day. I'm pre-diabetic myself.
