So, this whole diabetes diet is not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I met with the diabetic counselor yesterday and she gave me a list of foods that I can and can’t eat. She also showed me how to use my meter to check my blood sugar levels. Here is what I have been eating:
A piece of wheat toast with peanut butter
¼ cup of cottage cheese
Grilled chicken taco (not eating the whole tortilla) with salsa (yum!), lettuce, and cheese.
Beans and rice
12 wheat thins with salsa
Grilled chicken, some sort of vegetable, and ¼ rice
So far all my numbers have been really good, and I am very proud of myself. Last night me and Joey went to Sals Mexican Resturant and I didn’t have any chips(everyone who knows me probably knows how hard that was watching Joey chomp away on them!) Even though this is only the second day of this, I know I can keep it up. I have to keep on telling myself, that it is all for the baby!
