We need to go out more so I can figure out unusual carb counts and not amaze myself with a very high number after eating out. I am sure I can do this with much more practice. Right?
Went out to lunch today with friends and had a ham/swiss cheese panini with pineapple salsa, homemade chips and some pasta salad. I gave it all a ginormous number but, it wasn’t good enough. I even had them put the salsa on the side and did not eat it – well, one small bite but that’s all. I had the calorie king book in my purse but didn’t look up paninis. I’ll do it next time. I just checked paninis online and there’s a boatload of carbs in those things. Oh well. Live and learn.
The basal changes we made last week seem to be working (unless I eat a panini). But the morning stuff still drives me nuts. How I can wake up fine and then jump (30, 40, 50) with two cups of coffee is infuriating. I do a correction along with the breakfast bolus and all is good by lunchtime.
Breakfast is colorful and delicious right now. A local farm sells rasberries and blueberries, and they’re yummy. The local farm also has corn on the cob – just as delicious but, a little more carby than the berries.
Weather today is simply delightful (remind me next February). Sunny, breezy, temps in the low 70’s. Who could ask for anything more? (OK – better carb counting but, I’ll get there.)
