It's funny but as soon as I wake up in the morning, I'm excited to do two things...and no, eating breakfast is not one of them. Believe it or not, I can hardly wait to weigh myself and check my glucose. That's a big switch for me because before my journey I avoided my meter and the scale like the plague. At the time, I figured what was the point? Because of my poor eating habits, I knew the numbers weren't going to be good, but now, I can't wait to do both. My how things have changed.

Glucose: 155 (I can't believe it! Yesterday, it was 166 and today, it's come down another 11 points.)
Daily Food Journal:
Breakfast: Special K with berries, decaf
Lunch: 2 boiled eggs, 2 slices of whole grain toast, 1/2 banana
Dinner: 1veggie burger, 15 grapes and mixed vegetables with broccoli and spinach
Notes: My husband suggested that I put off exercising for a day or two so that my knee can heal. He feels that I'm pushing myself too hard and maybe I should only work out 3 or 4 days a week. I don't agree. I mean, I've been listening to my body and if I'm becoming too exhausted, I stop. I just don't want to not work out for 2 whole days. It seems like I'd be going backwards. Besides, my knee feels much better than it did yesterday. Today, it only bothered me when I was going up the stairs. Anyway, I took his advice and skipped my work out today, but tomorrow, I'm getting back to it.
