Yummy Deliciousness

For the life of me, I couldn't get all of my water in today.  I tried, but it just was impossible without feeling like I was going to float away.  I am on vacation this week and actually woke up later this morning (yay!) so I was behind.  I'm doing so much better than I used to do with drinking my water, though.  It's an incredible improvement.  Speaking of waking up later, I can't believe this but I have been actually sleeping on my CPAP.  Yahooooo!  Regular readers of this blog know how much I have absolutely struggled with it.  I still am having some problems sleeping on my back and on my side, but to be able to even get a night's sleep with it on my face is some sort of miracle.

Today my food was rockin'.  I took a couple of pics of some of my meals to share.  First up was my lunch.  Spring salad with tomatoes, artichoke hearts, tuna, Parmesan cheese and Walden Farms Chipotle Ranch dressing.  I love, love, love Walden Farms - no fat, no calories, no carbs, gluten free.  I get mine at Sprouts, but they are also available at Albertson's or on their own website.  My dad was even won over and this man hates anything that seems too "diety".

Next up is what I had for dinner.  My dad bought me a gas grill while he was here so it was my attempt at making something on my own with it.  I must say, for my first time, it was sooo yummy.  The salmon I made on the grill and the sauteed peppers I made in the kitchen.  I guess I could have cooked it on the grill as well since I have a gas burner on the side.  I was pretty darn proud of myself.  It came out good and I didn't burn down my backyard!

I have to learn to take better pictures for posting on my bog.  I see some blogs where the food pics look so professional.  Not mine!  While my food was wonderfully clean today, my blood sugar was low a couple of times today so I need to make sure I incorporate a little bit more carbs.  I aim to eat lower amounts of carbs but, as a diabetic, I can't remove them completely.  It's dangerous to do so and leaves me very shaky and clammy.  I will be so happy when my diabetes goes into remission.  It pretty much blows.

I'm trying to do the best I can to practice healthier eating habits to help prepare myself for the transition to surgery.  It's months away from now, but habits take a while to formulate.  Besides, there's nothing wrong with eating healthier.  I can't even describe the feeling of going to bed having had made good food choices and not in regret because I ate a whole carton or bag of something.  I haven't done that in a while, but the memory is never far from me.

A. I think they both look delish!
B. My CPAP was my savior after I learned to sleep with it. It helped me function until I lost enough weight I didn't need it anymore.
