Gramma got Run Over by a Reindeer

Thursday, January 18, 2018

I didn't want to give out Halloween candy this year, but talked myself into getting into the spirit of things. Dh refused to even answer the door, so I did...those kiddies are so cute on Halloween...what was with us?!?
Thanksgiving was just the two of us for the 3rd time in 50 years; we thought we didn't mind, but now I think we did.
Dd and her family were here for Christmas, and we found that nice...NICE?!? It should have been wonderful.
Part of the problem in re Christmas, is dd et al always bring strange germs with them, so I was not looking forward to that aftermath. Of course I caught a virus (from all that baby smooching, no doubt), and I was painfully ill for 10 days after they left. I'm still not totally well.
I am blogging this because my blood sugars have soared. I've lost 5 lbs since Christmas, but my a.m. sugars are 180s; afternoon 250s; and bedtime 160s, so I am back on the pill. No. I can't be congratulated for the weight loss because I gained seven between Halloween and Christmas. Not an unusual gain and loss, and never a sugars issues...until now. So I am bummed.
It's been a long time since I've had to keep a tight rein on my diet. Got a little cavalier about my choices and attitude about exchanging nutrition for chocolate, and got run over.
Today is Thursday, my attitude has been adjusted, and nothing is more important than my health. On, Danzer!
