This morning I got up an weighed myself hoping because I was so good yesterday I would have lost a few pounds already. Drat, no such luck. It was probably the curry on Sunday but the scales remained at 12 stone 9lbs. I pick up the omelette I had prepared the night before and the second portion of the tuna salad and left the house.
I ate the omelette when I got into work but still felt hungry and couldn't concentrate very well. Because of meetings in the morning I went for my lunchtime walk before I ate my salad and came back feeling a little faint. I made a mental note to myself to start carrying my blood sugar monitor with me. I've felt like this before when my blood sugars fall below 5. Being on Glycazide I know I can hypo although this has never happened to me.
In my office there always seem to be cakes, biscuits and sweets. Today was no exception as a couple of colleagues had returned from holiday and bought back 'holiday' sweets and biscuits. I knew this would be a challenge for me to resist and because I was feeling faint I had a celebrations chocolate and a biscuit. Day two and I had succumbed !! Where was the focus and positive thinking of yesterday ?
The tuna salad today was less appealing and all afternoon the sweets called out to me, inviting me to succumb to their deliciousness. I resisted but my concentration levels plummeted more and I couldn't wait to leave work.
I made the garlic prawns when I got home. Because I love my food and I am on this diet I have bought quality ingredients. If I can't eat a lot then what I eat had better be good. After last night I wasn't expecting a huge portion but again the taste didn't disappoint and I savored every morsel of my dinner.
Day 2 has been a struggle for me. I've felt faint and not been able to concentrate but I'm adapting to new eating habits and I wasn't expecting it to be plain sailing. One day at a time as they say.
