And the fall sickies begin!

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.
