I haven't been thinking much - let alone doing much - about my diabetes or my health in general lately.
Partly, my focus has been on other things. (My sister once said that life sometimes like a whack-a-mole game: while you're getting one issue dealt with, something you thought was settled pops back up.) But in addition to being somewhat distracted, I've also gotten lazy. Sloppy. Neglectful of things that don't (or shouldn't) require any attention at all except to do them.)
And now I'm really not feeling all that well.
So, I need to do a reboot of my diabetes management. I need to get back to doing the things that have worked for me before.
I need to eat more plant than animal, and I need to eat more green than grain. I need to avoid the snack machine. And I need to eat mostly what I've prepared for myself.
I need to walk to and from work -- all the time, not just most of the time. I have to find ways to move beyond this.
I need to test every morning, and often enough during the day to learn what my patterns are now.
I need to post here more often. I also need to get back to reading more blogs.
I'm trying not to feel guilty. Most folks in the DOC seem to go through this from time to time. And guilt uses energy I need for the reboot.
I need to reboot. And I need to do it now.
