So feeling a bit better. I'm not usually such a debbie-downer, but I think this time around was a pre-cold mini-depression. I also found out that my A1C (diabetic marker) was borderline at 5.9 (which equates to an average of 135 blood sugars)and my serum vitamin D was low -- all three contributing to being logy. Of course -- my cold symptoms do go away when I sleep so I'm kicking around the idea that I may be allergic to being awake.
I spent all day yesterday NOT eating sugar. This was really really hard. I didn't do so well with other refined carbs (Broncos vs Pats -- the fact I wasn't stress eating chocolate is a major accomplishment -- husband's family from Boston, we currently live and I grew up in Denver -- do the math). So although not stellar, better than I've been doing and I'm taking it one day at a time.
Today we're spending time as a family - much to the dismay of the 14 year old who made an impassioned argument about the importance of peer relationships over a three day weekend. We're going snowmobiling (seriously, the 14 year old would rather hang out texting his friends who are inches away than go snowmobiling? I have failed as a mother). The good news is it's really hard to eat while maneuvering a snowmobile with an 11 year old clinging to your back yelling, "Faster mom, keep up with dad"
well dad has a freakin' death wish, so no, I won't be keeping up with dad.
so today I should be able to keep my food in check and get some physical activity.
If we live, I will post pictures later
Have a great day all.
