Tonight I have no pictures and no update. I’ll have both next week, but this week I’m still processing this whole diabetes thing. Granted, I’ll probably still be processing in a week, and even several weeks after that.
I’ve started keeping a food journal. I’ve found it’s easier to do if I take the journal with me when I go eat, and write down before I eat. I’m also working to eat veggies and drink more water. I really, really don’t like vegetables. Seriously, I like spinach and green beans (which I’m not sure are a veggie, because they’re a bean and I’m thinking they’re mostly sugar, but I could be wrong). I like some veggies if they’re cooked in soup or on pizza. However, the list is really, super small. Turns out, if you’re diabetic, veggies are kinda important. Also, I’ve never liked drinking water. Lucky me, that’s another thing that’s important for me to consume now.
I’m not complaining, I’m just processing.
Okay, I’m not going to lie. I’ve been feeling a bit down in the dumps this week. A combination of things just put me in a funk, and to top it off I ended the week with what I’m assuming is either a mild case of food poisoning or the flu. This led to me not wanting to write a happy list tonight. However, the whole reason I started the Sunday night happy list was to remind myself of all the things (big, small, or completely pointless) that I’m thankful for. So, onto the list…
-Clean showers. Living in a co-ed dorm, using a shower that so many other people use, I’ve gained a new respect for the clean shower at home. At home, I don’t have to worry about what nasty, unknown bacteria is lurking in the shower with me.
-Clean water. There’s really no logic to this one, other than the fact that as I was trying to hydrate today it really hit home that having clean water is an incredible gift.
-The return of fall t.v. I admit it, I’m a couch potato.
-This is my 61st post. I’m really excited that I’ve managed to post something everyday since I set out on this blogging journey. I don’t exactly have a good track record when it comes to sticking with things I start.
-Having hair. Even though my hair is ridiculously frustrating, I really appreciate that I have hair.
