My blood sugar last night was 118. This morning it was 140. After having nothing to eat for the day, you’d think it would be at the more acceptable 100-110 range, but I guess I’ve got a long road to go. It’s difficult for me to remember the whole “marathon-no-sprint” mantra. That goes for weight, too. I’m more lenient with weight because I am having 800 calories, on average, for dinner, vice the 400 to 600 others are suggestion. That’s just not sustainable in my opinion. I’m trying to plan for a future of better eating. I’m okay sacrificing those super-good losses. At least I keep telling myself that.
I went another day without much water at all. It’s not something I’m doing consciously or on purpose. I just haven’t been hungry or thirsty, save for the shakes I’d had. I had two chocolate shakes today. I just wasn’t feeling the vanilla today. If I were to ever do a sustained Isagenix routine again, I think I’d skip the vanilla and the strawberry, altogether. They just don’t taste that great in my opinion, but the chocolate ones aren’t bad. It makes me nervous because of my quest to find something else when these 30 days are up. It’s definitely going to be a powder-based protein shake as the pre-made stuff has too much sugar. That’s too bad, too. I’ve had the Slim-Fast shakes before, and they’re really good. That always comes with a price, though.
Dinner was good tonight! I had brown rice and Hormel hot chili with beans. That was a total of 820 calories. I’m still full right now. It didn’t do too bad a number on my blood sugar though; I just took it and it was 160. My hope is that a month or so from now, after this same meal, I’d be around 130 or so. The scary thing for me to think about though is that this is all still because I’m taking Metformin. I still have a long way to go to be rid of my meds, but that’s the ultimate goal. That’s not happening this year, and maybe even never, but as long as I get better, it’s a win.
Today I got an unexpected surprise; someone whom I’ve never met commented on my blog. That’s awesome! It was more in the lines of ‘hey, check out more information on sugars’ and that Isagenix still has a lot of benefits, which I realize, as my friend who got me started on this harps on that often. But this is from someone completely outside my circle and it’s awesome that my words were read by anyone outside my friends. I replied (as you can see, yourself) that I take her points, and I get that I should do my own research rather listen to reviews, and I do. I want to know what people from all perspectives think of Isagenix–and any other thing I may decide to purchase. Thank you, sincerely, to anyone that’s read or replied to anything I’ve posted here. You’re awesome!
