It never fails. As the mom of five children, four of which are in school, plus working with little ones part time, it's bound to happen. I have a cold. *groan* The hardest part about having a cold and diabetes is my appetite. Either I have one or I don't. When I'm hungry with a cold, I want to eat everything in sight. On the other hand, there are also moments where I don't want to eat anything at all. My desire for exercise is also close to nill since I start coughing when I take a deep breath. The wacky appetite and lack of movement makes it very hard for a diet/exercise controlled diabetic to stay in control.
I'll be honest here. I haven't checked my numbers much the last few days. Thankfully the few times I have checked, my glucose readings have been good (ie 105 around 3:30pm today). I know it would have been higher if I had that Snickers bar that was calling my name from the vending machine at the Y during my kids' swim lessons. I'll try to remember to check my numbers a little better tomorrow. I know that I'm wanting to pig out at times, so I try to avoid unnecessary snacks. However, sometimes if I'm not paying attention it backfires when I forget to have my needed snack.
My blog title is accurate tonight - RFamHere's Ramblings. I guess I'm just rambling right now. I'm hoping I can kick this cold soon. I'm already sick of the stuffy nose and cough. I think tonight might be an early night.
