Small Victories….

For the last four days, I’ve seen one high of 260 mg/dL….and that’s the only number over 200 that’s flashed on my meter!

I know, four days isn’t a huge deal…BUT I feel like celebrating the small things, so I’m counting this one as a win

I’ve been sticking to my diet of less than 45 grams of carbs at each meal, and it has been working wonders for me and I’m testing about ten times a day (thanks for the suggestions ladies <3 ). My husband and I went shopping today, and I picked out some stuff to make smoothies in a blender I received from a friend for my birthday. I purchased frozen fruit, yogurt (did you know they have yogurt for diabetics? 3 grams of carbs!) and milk and added up the the amount of carbs it would make for just one serving: 19 grams!  I’m quite sure if that will fill me up, so if I use the suggested amount which makes two servings, it totals 38 grams of carbs….a quick and easy breakfast!

Right now I have two breakfasts on my menu: Oatmeal made with water, not milk…because I can never seem to figure out how to bolus for it if I use milk, but if I use water- TADA my blood sugars behave (not sure why), and this smoothie

I’m slowly trying to make a menu of quick and easy meals that will help get my A1c where I need it to be. So far, my list is short. Does anyone else have suggestions (breakfast, lunch or dinner) for a quick, easy and low carb meal? I’d appreciate any feedback!

And thank you guys for all your positive feedback My hubby and I are very excited, and I’m working hard to prepare this body for a baby! Lets pray that I can keep this up!
