For the last few months I have been playing it safe. I have been afraid to eat certain foods, I know that sounds ridiculous but it is fact. I did not want to get out of control and fall into my old habits. I wanted to get used to my new diet first.
I am now ready to eat different foods. I am still keeping a close eye on the carb amounts. I have been eating cookies. Even at my most unhealthy I did not dare eat cookies. I can have 2 cookies at just 20 carbs. I know does not sound like a lot but when you deprive yourself 2 is everything. I have eating frozen yogurt too. They come in bar form and have only 5 grams of carbs.
It adds to my life, it is one more way for me to let diabetes know that I am in control. Yes I still have high blood sugars but adjustments and learning what certain foods do is a process of learning and failure. I still eat healthy. I eat a lot of fish, which is funny because I always thought fish was gross. I was so wrong. It is one of my favorite foods.
I am getting used to my healthy life. I feel a lot better, I realize now that in my previous life I was not living but just surviving. That is no way to live. Our time here is too short, you have to respect the time you are given. I sometimes use song to convey my feelings there is a song by Noah and the Whale called “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.” I will leave with a lyric I have been living by and have found inspiration in. Have a great weekend!
“On my last night on earth I won’t look to the sky, just breathe in the air and blink in the light. On my last night on Earth I will pay a high price to have no regrets and be adored with my life”
