I haven't been on WA for a while. Seems the dark cloud that had been following me around for a while wasn't quite finished with me yet. I was laid low yet again.
Last week I became seriously ill and spent 4 days in the hospital. Needless to say this was not a fun experience. But even more disheartening was the fact that I couldn't get on WA, do my training or write any content for my website.
I always say that everything happens for a reason. One thing that has really opened my eyes about this experience is the fact that I have to keep a good close eye on my diet and my sugar levels as I am a diabetic. I learned that I don't have to starve myself to keep my insulin in control. I ate more in the hospital than I ever would at home and still lost 10 lbs.
Of course it's a lot easier when someone else is preparing your meals but I took my clue from the food I was getting and have adapted that info to how I now eat at home. Its amazing the amount of food you can east and still keep your carb count down.
Now I'm recording everything I eat along with calorie and carb count (boring and time-consuming but absolutely necessary) and also my sugar levels and the amount of insulin I need to take.
So far so good. I'm managing to keep my sugar down and to remain within my allotted caloric and carb intake.
It is what it is. I'm feeling much better now and will be jumping in with both feet to catch up. Well maybe one foot at a time as I continue to recover but t least I'm back.
