Did the light meals and frequent snacks and then had a nice dinner, and I have to tell you, I feel the best I have in a long time. Definitely completely restructuring my diet.
Tonight we had the cod filets in a red pepper puree, and they were delicious. Shawn really liked the quinoa salad I made the other night, so I made that again, and then we had steamed cauliflower with some cheddar cheese. Dessert was another one of those Edy’s pineapple fruit bars, which I really like. he spent a lot of time at Schofield and loves pineapple, and it seems to not fuck with him at all sugar wise, so we are doing a lot of pineapple. Plus, I throw the remains of the pineapple (except the stalk) when I cut it out to the starving deer, so nothing goes to waste.
Had some weird fluctuations with his sugar. Did a random and it was 130, then before dinner a couple hours later, having had only a handful of peanuts and the like, it was 158. After dinner, the 1 hour was 151 and the 2 hour was 136, all of which is light years better than when he got here, but still too high. Again, we both think it is about the trend right now and establishing a baseline, or as we have been joking, zeroing the M-16.
Regardless, I feel better, so I am going to keep eating this way from now on. And the knee is almost back to 80% or so, so I can start exercising again.
