I awoke bright and early at 4:30 this AM with a slight headache and my ears were ringing. Nope, there were no pots involved, only a box of organic veggie broth. Poor Mikey, he has to deal with a slightly nutty wife lately. We are both really happy about the raging lunatic that I have become.
You remember the melted pot incident? Well, that happened because my blood sugars are starting to drop and drop hard. This is a MAJOR good thing. So, when I rose this morning with ringing ears I checked my blood sugar numbers to see if they were high (ringing in the ears happens when they are high), but they were not high. The meter read 89–very good actually. Low blood sugar numbers is a GREAT thing, but these changes makes for a nutty wife (for Mikey) and mom (for the Fam) to deal with. This means that I am not rational in my anger or arguments … no smarty remarks about my not being rational (wink, wink); something my family is both used to and NOT used to. I normally eat to control the ravaging affects of insulin on my body. I don’t particularly like how it makes me act or feel. I go to great lengths not to put myself or my family through all that; however, sometimes, like now, the horrible shifts are unavoidable.
It will take a bit for my body to get adjusted to this new low. Right now it thinks that I am harming it. Just to give you a clue how much my numbers are changing, just after the exploding broth-box incident I crammed an oatmeal cookie down my throat to calm my shakes–an appropriate amount of time later I checked my blood sugars; 110 was what they read. Normally, eating one of those cookies spikes my blood sugar to somewhere in the 160-to-180 range. Since starting OptiFast (my blood sugars rose a bit at the beginning of the program–yucky shifting then too) when I wake up my blood sugars are 125-ish to 140-ish. So you can see there is a change going on in my body for my waking numbers to 89 instead of 140’s or so.
On a funny note: Once the broth no longer dripped down the tiles of the back splash and there was again a normalcy to my numbers I had to show Mikey and Collin the face exercise videos, and of course we all had to try them. On a SIDE note — my face is killing me! haha! There is this one oriental face exercise video that was so wild and funny, even though we could not understand a word they were saying we laughed our butts off, and of course we tried to do what they were doing as well. GREAT FUN!
Oh well, Sophie girl is here and I am having to stop typing and scream, “the toilet! the toilet!” I forgot to put the lid down and Sophia, like all little babies, loves to take phones or anything else electrical swimming in the porcelain pond.
Oh …. and my scales went down again. Not much but still down. Yeah! Not official but still good news with my eating so much more. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! Doin’ tha Happy Dance. Gotta run ….. later gators ….S
