Whole30 Day -22
I had a visit with my doctor yesterday and he'd like me to try juicing. I have a lot going on in my life right now, so we decided to reconvene on May 19. This is the decision I have made: Between now and then, I will work to drive my blood sugar down and lost 5-10 pounds before my next visit. Those are lofty, but doable goals. On May 1, I begin a determined Whole30. To that end, I ordered a few supplies today. There is a nutritional yeast product called Parma that tastes a little like cheese, and that's been ordered. My container is three years old. It's gotta go. I ordered Tessamae's BBQ sauce and coconut aminos. Both are heavy on flavor and go well with chicken and fish, respectively. Some items, I use every day, so I have them around already. Tessamae's makes a mayo I'd like to check out; they have it at Whole Foods. If it sucks, oh well. After the road trip, groceries will be bought accordingly. I'll clean out the frig before I go. I'm actually looking forward to this. I need to kick start some weight loss and get my A1c under control. I've lost 3 pounds since I saw the doctor last, but the A1c sucks because I've been eating crap. Between now and May 1, starting tomorrow because of that leftover piece of pie!, I'll eat within my parameters and close to paleo. That should begin some blood sugar repair and weight loss. I've found an herbal tea that I adore and it's sweet without being sweetened. It may be a good snack for the evening. I have plenty and look forward to continuing to drink it. I need to become obsessed and become one of "those" people who are on target every day for the 30 days. I have a huge mission to accomplish. I would prefer a lower weight and don't want complications of diabetes. So day -22 it is.
