Diabeetus (Accountability Day 3)

That fucking cat hates me. 
My blood sugars, even after exercise and pretty damned perfect eating, are all over the place and it's pissing me off. Not much I can do but continue as I'm doing until my next doctor's appointment. I'm even wondering if I'm passing into type 1 diabetes.

Fucking insane!

For today, we begin anew with testing and eating properly. 
Eggs, asparagus, pancetta, asiago, organic ketchup. 
ADA says 2-3 carb servings per day, 1 serving = 15 grams (I think it's too high, so try to stay under)
This breakfast was 11 grams of carbs and 20 of protein. The sugar in the asparagus and organic ketchup is the same - 3 grams. That's a) how little sugar there is in the ketchup and b) how much sugar there is naturally occurring in vegetables, not just fruits. 
I'm currently sort of obsessed with keeping an eye on carb/protein ratios and exercising and getting enough sleep. I have a way to go. Wonder if I need an endocrinologist at this point? Am I headed for type 1 with insulin? What else can I do to improve this situation? 
For now, I will continue with paleo/primal eating and making efforts toward overall good health. 

I ended up sending my BS log to the doc. We'll see if they have any suggestions. I also had a snack of nuts and just finished my lunch of egg salad with olives and shredded lettuce:

Dinner was kind of okay. I tried baking the sweet potato and then "frying" it in a pan with my eggs. Won't do it again, but I'll keep trying. So far, I like them riced. Might have to stick with that. I ate about half of what's showing. I covered the eggs and took a bite of egg with each bite of sweet potato. No ketchup :)

Fully accountable today. I'm waiting to see if Dr H has anything to say about my blood sugars. Interestingly, it did read at 177 after lunch (note the lack of carbs with lunch, a grand total of 15 for lunch, 11 for breakfast, and 20 for dinner). We'll see how it goes.
