Day 10 of the 1000 day challenge.
This morning, I did a Fit for Duty kickboxing routine. It’s was a pretty light workout, but it’s a nice way to get the heart rate up and sort of ‘wake up’ to the day…
Last night I didn’t do so hot on the dieting thing… After that hard workout, I had a salad with a full orange, some mini tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, and some leftover meat… then Tekla got home and wanted to go out, so at Denny’s I had a half order of the cranberry chicken salad. I avoided the bread there (had a small corner of it, but that was it…) After we got home, and ready for bed, I was still a bit sore from the workout and was feeling odd so checked sugar at it was 100 at 9:30 pm, just like it was at 3:30 pm… so I then had a couple of cinnamon graham crackers with hazelnut jif as a snack. That jif stuff is fairly low carb but it’s high calorie… Hopefully today will be a better dieting day. It’s hard to remember that salads, meat, and cheese type of stuff isn’t all that I should eat since they are all fairly low carb, so have little impact on blood sugar level… so if I eat meals based on those, I need some form of carbs to balance it out since I need 45-55 carbs or so per meal.
I think my screw up yesterday was that I took an orange along with a ham and cheese sandwich and some mushrooms and a few mini-tomatoes to lunch, but didn’t eat the orange, so carb level was too low after lunch and it impacted me the rest of the day.
