Summary 12/23/15

  • Comments: Pictured above is my only “meal” of the day but without the bacon jam (old pic). I kind of snacked the rest of the day. And maybe that was part of my blood sugar roller coaster for the day. The good news is I ended up the day with a blood sugar reading of 125 and ketones at 1.5 which I was pleasantly surprised by! Tomorrow I will strive to eat a couple bigger meals and do less snacking eating. I don’t plan to eat any foods that have carbs in them like yogurt or my protein powder. Just going to go with prepared fresh foods. It would be nice if I could get up earlier and start the day with a nice long walk!? We’ll see
  • Tomorrow: Get up early and go for a long walk. Christmas Eve, we’ll be busy at work!
  • This week: Going pretty good.
  • This Month: Good
  • Wins: Eating right except for today, ketones, exercising
  • Challenges: Keeping my blood sugar low, but ended up not too bad!
  • One word: falter

  • BS was high, so I used that as an excuse to have 3 cold coffees with agave nectar. But I thought my bs would be sky high when I got home, but it wasn’t, just 125.

Workout 1: Up and over walk, 37 min

Workout 2: 15 min walk in the parking lot at work between lunch and dinner shifts

Comments: Tried to do a slower pace to stay in fat burning zone, but still went cardio. Maybe I have the heart rate zones set up wrong on my fitbit? Ended up with over 12,000 steps for the day. Keep it moving!
