The weight of it all: One down, many more to go!

WooHoo!  Lost a pound this week.  I’ll be honest, I didn’t get back on the calorie counting wagon as much as I had hoped this past week.  BUT, even though it took me a few extra days, I am now back on track and hopefully will see another pound (or more) gone this coming week.  It may be a semi-challenging week with the 4th and going to a baseball game on Friday (hot dog and beer anyone?) but I think I’ll be OK.  If I want to indulge, I will just make adjustments elsewhere.

On the recommendations of my CDE, a nurse during my yearly health assessment at work, and fellow blogger Allison :o), I’ve upped my calories to 1550/day.  Seems totally do-able and hopefully I’ll see better results by eating a little more.  We’ll see how it goes.  On the Diabetes Front, I’m aiming to eat less than 60g of carbs per meal to prevent those big after meal spikes.

Exercise is, well…there.  I’m struggling with it for a variety of reasons.  The main one is that my blood sugar seems to react differently to it on different days and I really am working hard to keep my CGM graphs as smooth as possible.  I need to figure out a solution though because I know how important exercise is to not only losing weight, but maintaining a healthy D-Life.  I don’t know if this means choosing a different form of exercise or just being more aggressive with trying new things as far as basal rates when I go to boxing.

My goal for this week is to not let the holiday and baseball game derail me.  And to be more focused on what I am eating over the weekend!
