A little reactive hypoglycemia

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

My mom had hypoglycemia that she discovered after passing out when walking a couple of times, and accusing others of pushing her down. So hypoglycemia and diabetes runs in the family. I got WLS surgery as I was heading on an unhealthy path which would have been diabetes next. I have never had hypoglycemia before surgery. I had a P3 snack about 3 pm and we went to Bass Pro to order the dh a rain jacket for Christmas about 5 pm. I ate some peanut butter crackers which I generally think of as a good snack each morning. I found myself fatigued, hungry, headache, irritable, not wanting to concentrate and in general yucky within an hour. I finally realized what was happening and told the dh. We finished up shopping quickly and headed home. My husband offered to stop on the way home and eat but it was all just fast food. Home is not that far so we came straight there. I fixed a shake immediately and within 30 minutes feeling better.

I got my steps in for the day and walked outside with no coat on a sunny beautiful 70 degree day. It was strange after such COLD temperatures in Alabama last night. We got the gift ordered and I am excited about my planned 10 K on Thanksgiving morning. A new tradition!

On a sad note I am saying prayers for the people of Ferguson Missouri who have suffered, the businesses and people who live there left in the destruction of evil people and evil actions. How does this make anything better?

Giving Thanks this November

Sunday, November 23, 2014

I have been practicing giving thanks everyday this November to prepare myself for the upcoming Christmas season. It fills me to realize how blessed I am. The family dinner was great Saturday but seeing family was even better. Not making myself sick through over eating was the greatest. I did eat. I had winter squash soup, turkey, Table spoon of seven layer salad, table spoon potato casserole, spoonful of carrot and apple, table spoon of Kale and got that pumpkin pie. My niece made a pumpkin walnut pie from scratch. The shell was walnut with a all natural fruit spread glaze on bottom and filled with pumpkin and coconut sugar filling and walnut crunch on top! It was wonderful! While not sugar free it did not shock my system and I had a whole slice later in the evening. I will be asking for this recipe today :). Although I don't need to make it just collect it for the future! I do not need a whole pie to eat!

I had like 19,000 steps so that is a great day. not over eating, sampling good food, burning calories!

Run and then EAT :)

Saturday, November 22, 2014

My hubby and I are up and ready to run. The food is ready for the oven and the oven programed for preheat by the time we get back. Love that feature. We will go to my sister in laws for a early Thanksgiving dinner today. I hope someone has pumpkin pie so I can have a bite (that's all I will need). I just don't want to feel deprived and a bite will do. I am not happy to have to make the hash brown casserole AGAIN! I can bring anything I want as long as I make this (FOR LIKE 35 YEARS!). I have tried to give away the recipe and they say they can't make it like me. Thank you for the compliment but I get tired of making it. It's a tradition so I participate and make it. I could do it in my sleep at this point, so it's not a real bother.

This is the recipe except: I use SHARP cheddar cheese and Tony Chachers creole seasoning instead of plain salt and pepper. Don't be afraid to season the potatoes or its bland. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/hash-brown-ca

Hope you have a great day!

    Why not make the casserole and take something new as well. Maybe they'll fall in love with the new recipe. Of course, that might mean next year you get asked to bring both. emoticon
You can make pumpkin custard (think pumpkin pie without the crust) that's really low in calorie if you ue Egg Beaters and sugar substitute instead of the real thing. That way you can have your fill and not blow your diet.
Have a great run and a great weekend. I'm not quite sure what I'll do with myself tomorrow afternoon without any NASCAR race.

What a pretty day it became...#weirdalabamaweather

Friday, November 21, 2014

So we went from 19 degrees to 60 yesterday. Blue skies, sun shining day. I even had to take off my long john undershirt in the afternoon to not burn up. So I got my hair cut and then took a walk before having to start work. I got a picture while at the park of the cut and style. I got most of my 10,000 steps in and had no problem finishing with almost 13,000 for the day.

Today I get to sew and will have to take a picture of my hat and gaiter efforts. But first a run! Going to run this am with dh and L, then sew with T, and go for a massage with R.
Nice day planned. I will prep this evening for our early family Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday.

I signed up for the local 10 K turkey trot on Thanksgiving day because well we wont be going anywhere for a Thanksgiving dinner. I decided I would start a new tradition. I should be home by 10 am. Then who knows. If my husband decides we will escape somewhere, well then we shall go and I donated $10 bucks to the local club. He however doesn't decide these things and often we end up going now where so I wanted to be prepared and not loose out on the chance to run!

    Sounds like a great day. I'm doing a 5k on Thanksgiving with my great-niece Audrey who is 12. Then heading to my niece's house and her family for dinner. We alternate families for Thanksgiving - this year is my husband's side.
