I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things after a wonderful holiday week at home with my family. I fully enjoyed wearing my pajamas all day, reading for hours and cooking in my mom’s big kitchen (as opposed to the closet-sized one in my studio apartment).
The one thing I did not enjoy was the high blood sugar. Entering my first holiday season with diabetes, I expected I’d have some highs. But this was ridiculous. I tried SO hard to eat healthy, stay away from carbs (which meant I didn’t enjoy most of the holiday treats I made) and get exercise, but my blood sugar consistently stayed elevated. It’s very deflating to go into a fabulous dinner with a blood sugar of nearly 300. Ugh.
When I returned to LA last weekend, I tried to get back on my regular eating and exercising routine immediately. Now a week later, my blood sugar is finally getting back to normal. I’m glad I was able to bring my numbers down, but frustrated by how easily they got out of whack.
