As I go through this journey of being a reactive hypoglycemic is figuring out what my body needs to keep my sugar normal. This has been an up and down week. Some days I've won and some days I've lost, but I'm trying to figure out what I need trial and error wise. Yesterday was a good day!
You are probably wondering - woah that is alot of snacks! Honestly not really outside of the cake :-) I have found that I need to eat breakfast and eat something around 2.5 to 3 hours later to keep my sugar up or it drops by normal 80-90 to 40 or below. So I eat something with protein and hit a fruit or I eat something with protein and little bit of a carb especially when my sugar runs really low like it did last night hence the 10 tortilla chips. It has been an interesting up and down but something I'm learning. Today I planned a little better on the snack end and am muching on oranges and my greek yogurt with click mocha mixed in (a little bitter so i added a packet of sweet and low = YUMMY) I had half the yogurt this morning and will finish it off this afternoon and that adds more protein overall making my protein for yogurt snack 21.5 grams of protein. Alot of protein for the bang of the snack.
You will notice that there are no exercise points. I'm sucking in that area. It is now 100 + degrees in TX and I'm not wanting to walk outside and my pool at the apt is broken so no swimming for me. I've got to get moving and there isn't time for more excuses so I have to figure this out! Since I'm off on vacation next week I'm going to try some videos and tapes and see what I can get into to start a routine. Now if only I could find an app for vitamins!
