Was it the rice or the exhaustion... or something else entirely?
Yesterday got so rough that I fell asleep and missed the end of the Super Bowl.
Now today I'm worried it will happen again, and I'll need to go to the lab. I had the bright idea of walking to the lab when it happens, but as I think about it, that might not be too bright to try on my own. I can't drive when my sugar is low. It's only two blocks, but it would feel like miles if my sugar was that low. Happily, Cay isn't working today, so if I can go in between 11:00 and 2:00 she can walk in with me.
I'm always analyzing (or over-analyzing) what I eat, and now I'm suspicious of those rice waffles. Thing is, I worry about everything that's a grain at this point. This shopping trip I did pick up some grains and carbs: lentil crackers, baked corn, and rice waffles for me, pita crackers and quinoa for Cay. But now I'm worried about the grains and carbs... and I don't want to eat any of it.
Anyway, I saw the above Natalie Dee comic this morning, and literally LOL'd. Cay actually DID get all excited about getting quinoa yesterday. Sorry Natalie, some people DO get excited about quinoa. And I love quinoa myself... but with the huge carb count for the stuff, I only eat a tablespoon at a time.
And speaking of food choices... Yesterday I also picked up a huge selection of Kroger's CARBmaster Yogurt, Light Yogurt, Greek Light Yogurt, and Greek Yogurt. I'm especially excited about the lower carb yogurts, and I'll be reviewing them later this week or over the weekend. One of the joys of being a Bzz Agent is that I got all those yogurts (16 different ones!) absolutely free. Cay will be helping me eat the yogurts and giving me her opinions for the reviews.
Carbs and sugar are very much on my mind today.
