I suppose that beer and chips aren’t exactly the best way to keep sugar low. I can usually keep these things in check, but not last night. Despite the fact that I grilled an incredible steak in the back yard and paired it with freshly picked broccoli from the garden which was carefully steamed to perfection and allowed a half of a small baked potato into the mix which I added a dab of sour cream to it just wasn’t enough. I had to complete this fine dinner with a six pack of one of finest craft beer’s in Oregon and a half a bag of potato chips.
Why did this happen you ask? After burning over 300 calories on the treadmill I should of followed up with enough carbohydrates to create the energy needed to restore burned energy. Instead I followed my workout up with a protein shake at 6:00 AM. I didn’t eat again until lunch which was a whole wheat Sandwich Thin with Tuna and tomato with melted swiss cheese. Yes the old Tuna Melt Sandwich was consumed at around 11:00 AM. After dealing with aggravation from a two hour cleaning at the dentist, Don’t get me started… we did some aggravating food shopping where we experienced nothing but one stupid situation after the next. At around 3:00 PM I ate a plateful of left over Chinese Food.
So the bottom line is that I ate way too much after noon and not enough before noon. And the results… Wait for it… a blood sugar level of 136! The audience cheers as the host says, “I’m sorry but you didn’t quite reach your goal today, but we do have a consolation prize for you.” “Johnny tell him what he won”.
Today is absolutely a day of rest not only because I need it, but also because somehow I must have slept incorrectly on my manhood and woke up with a little pain in my right testicle. I know, It’s nuts! Take me out to the ball game… So today the Beast will be quietly at bay.
Blood Sugar- 136, Body Weight- 185.6
