Having a Merrry Christmas

I have been having a really good time during this Christmas. Lost of parties and get-togethers. Luckily most of them have lots of Chicken to eat. Folks are already aware that I will need protein so they make extra Chicken and some salad for me. Works out good.
I am still only tracking my morning fasting sugars. The numbers are coming between 118 and 135. A huge spread, but then so is the variety and timings of my food intake these days. I am happy at how the body is doing.
I know that January will be a hard month. The body will have to be retrained to a normal diabetic life. No more freedom to eat whenever I need to. Monitoring sugars 4 times a day. In another week I expect my appetite will have grown and I will have to go through some weeks of partial fasting to shrink it back to the size it needs to be. Also been craving sweets at the end of each meal. Not a good thing. I guess I could substitute with stuff made in Spenda or Equal.
Also not getting good and continuous sleep. Has lead to lots of Caffeine intake. But I am not complaining. Life is good. Couple of extra cups of Coffee and Tea are helping smooth the days.

I am glad things are going well for you! I always crave something sweet after a meal. I just tend to choose something small and get it over with, or I will snack all night until I have my “something sweet.”
