Back to square one (sort of)

I realized today that I’m basically starting over again. Let me explain. When I was first diagnosed a year ago I didn’t just immediately jump into complete control. It wasn’t long after that first diagnosis that we found ourselves at McDonald’s for dinner. It was also shortly thereafter that our Girl Scout cookies were delivered (mmmm….Thin Mints) and that the three tubs of cookie dough I ordered for my son’s school fund-raiser arrived. But I soon found myself walking daily (at 5:30 a.m.!) and counting carbs and feeling generally really good.

So I suppose it should be no surprise that I’ve essentially been reborn. Again. I took a serious break from diabetes after the baby was born and now I’m pretty much working on getting back on track. I actually made tonight’s dinner last night. My older daughter has dance class tonight from 4:45 to 5:45 and hubby won’t be home until 6, so I’ve got this elaborate dance to perform tonight when it comes to picking up children, nursing the baby and making dinner all before getting the big kids ready for bed at 7:30 and watching “our shows” on TV tonight. So, anyway, I decided last night that if all I had to do was pop the meatballs in the oven while A is at dance class we’d be in super shape to actually eat dinner as a family without eating out. J and I will have to pick up some milk after dropping off A and before picking up the baby. Sheesh! I’m exhausted just thinking about it.

I also decided today to add a blog to my blog. (Ha!) I’m putting online my food log. Whatever I eat, I am writing down (motivation for me to know what I’m eating and stay in better control) and I decided to share it with the world in the slim chance that it might be helpful to someone else. Might be helpful to me, too. Who knows?
