Yeah I do but sleep last night was terrible and so broken up. Slept for a few hours, was up for a few hours and took ages to settle again.
Was hungry when I was up so gawd knows what days points those snacks fell into.
Anyway slept till lunchtime so I will be so out of wack now. Story of my life lol.
Waiting for tescos to bring my shopping then figure out if I have time to meal prep or if I will have to leave it till tomorrow
Slept much better ty Managed to stay up till midnight.
Didn't do the meal prep yesterday so that's this mornings job after water tablets.
Got a bunch of chicken breasts and a tray of steak mince to do something with.
I know I have stuff to make chilli and and might make a couple of portions of mince and carrot for quick tatties n mince.
Will make up some poached chicken done in oxo with a bunch of veg and maybe put aside a couple for some oven baked chicken wrapped in bacon and cheese.
I just do so much better when everything is pre portioned, weighed and pointed and ready to just heat in the microwave.
Didn't get the mince cooked but did do all the chicken That's todays task.
Went a little over points yesterday but nothing too crazy. Will do better today though and try and be on target.
Going to have a look at planning Christmas. Fist diabetic Christmas so challenge accepted
Typically we have a munch fest on Christmas Eve. Pizza is about the only thing we could class as proper food and the rest is hot chocs with cream, harbo, chips n dip, savoury snacks etc. Duvets and movies is the usual day's plans.
While I will be off diet Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I need to find some low GI alternatives. Doesn't need to be healthy/diet friendly tho
I MUST have stable levels so I can have roast potatoes xmas day .
finally saw a 1/2lb loss on my overall.
Had a couple of solidly good days. No dipping into weeklies or going over points. (weeklies are fine to use but I prefer not to if I can help it)
Last night I tested my fav healthy comfort meal which is the poached chicken in stock and veg that I usually meal prep, with a pack of maggi noodles mixed through and so freaking happy to report that they had so little impact on me they have been marked safe
Been a weird week for me. Kinda disappeared without even realising it.
Have all but given up weighing myself of late. Stupid blummin fluid. Actually saw a doctor today in person who actually properly checked my legs and actually came up with a plan better than take these as required: take them every day, come back for bloodwork, if good, up the dose, try for another 2 weeks, same again until we get a good dose that doesn't trash my already overworked (but okay for now) kidneys.
The good news is my home bp meter lines up well enough with nurse's reading so we are happy that I do not have high blood pressure but white coat syndrome (ffs). Anyway they are keeping me on low dose bp meds for time being given the oedema etc.
