This morning, after taking the kids to school and the hubby to work, I came home and ate breakfast. Unfortunately the breakfast I chose had too many carbs to allow me to sit at the computer this morning. So I grabbed my cell phone, identification, keys, and meter out of my purse, and started for a walk.
Is this the part where I admit that I also grabbed some change so I could stop for a Diet Coke along the way? Ok, confession time: I grabbed $2 worth of quarters out of my change jar knowing I'd probably stop at a small restaurant just under a mile from my house. I figured it was a great place to get a drink and check my glucose levels to see if I was going too low. I also grabbed my debit card in case I was going too low and needed some carbs. Thankfully I only needed the drink. (Yes, I know that water would have been a *much* better choice, but I needed that carrot to motivate me today. I'll go get a glass of water right now... Ok, I have water now. Yes, I'll actually drink it, too!)
Of course now it's almost time to have lunch with hubby and I haven't gotten any housework done. There are projects I'd like to do before I start getting called to substitute teach. Once I start getting sub calls, chaos happens, though I can't wait to start getting those calls.
This afternoon, I think my "before the kids come home" are:
- pick up the living room
- fold/put away my laundry
- watch a tv show from the DVR without interuption
