I went to my appointment Wednesday. I was a nervous wreck and it didn’t help I was cut off by a driver TWICE and making me also angry/stressed. Eventually, I was checked in and waited for my turn to go back. I prayed I didn’t need an elevator; thanks be to God, no elevator was needed.
After I calmed down and listened intently and with an open mind to the nutritionist, I discovered there was some things that I didn’t know about diabetes before. One of the main things I learned was that if you build muscles the blood sugar will be used more for toning them than being elevated in the form of the measurable blood sugar when I prick my finger. I’m sure I’m wording this awkwardly, but that the gist of it and I’m determined to make that my goal: to do something elliptical (as the nutritionist put it) on the days I don’t go for a walk. I also learned that peas are considered protein foods and not veggies like I thought. Why? Because peas are practically beans and beans are legumes; legumes are protein buddies/foods. 😀 That’s so cool!!! Also I learned that I should be drinking about 8 oz of milk (preferably skim, which is fine because that’s what I drink anyway) and having 3 servings of carbs every meal (that is 45 grams total); I should even have veggies and meat (or meat substitutes) at every meal. Veggies are free foods, meaning they don’t limit how many/much I eat.
I also learned a lot about modeling today. I learned how to model using bézier curves. Not my best modeling, but it was a learning experience. I learned if you want models all level not to mess with the Z-axis. 😉
Anyway, not much else I feel like reporting tonight and I’ll write again Saturday!
Love and prayers!
