Tuesday, September 25th
I think I may have figured out why my fasting numbers haven't completely fallen back to normal. I've been told over and over again (ESPECIALLY while I was pregnant with Butter Bean) to make SURE I had a bedtime snack. It was drilled into my head. But I go to bed so late and get up so freaking early that if I eat a snack before bed I don't think there's enough time to get a true fasting reading. Last night we finished dinner at 7:30PM and I went to bed, sans snack, at 11PM. My bG at 9:30PM was 122. Up at 4:45AM and my bG was 87!!! I'm hoping that that little discovery holds true for more than one day. We'll see. :)
So here's today's stuff:
4:45AM: (fasting) - 87
7:30AM: (breakfast) - shredded spinach, 3 fried eggs, guacamole, small cup of coffee with a cinnamon stick
12:00PM: (lunch) turkey burgers, salad and homemade ranch dressing
5:00PM: (dinner) Butternut Squash Lasagna This stuff is AMAZING. So much so that a more-than-double batch lasted for exactly one dinner with leftovers for lunch for me and hubby. The girls will eat it; they don't love it yet. But I will continue to make it until they do because dayum it is good. NOTE: I couldn't find store-bought pizza sauce sans sugar, so I made my own Paleo Pizza Sauce with these changes: I doubled the recipe, used onion powder instead of dried minced onion, and added enough water so that the doubled batch equaled 1 quart. The original recipe is VERY thick; I wanted it much thinner, and I needed a LOT.
7:00PM: forgot to test ... 2 back-to-back games!
I've been snacking throughout the day on in-the-shell pistachios -- too much of them. :(
