Day three, a setback but still movement forward

Today is day three with diabetes and I made a piss-poor choice. I drove myself headfirst into a medium caramel frappe after having a horrible night. This may be TMI (too much information) so be forewarned, folks. I have my period and I have been bleeding heavily. So heavily that last night I was bleeding through a super plus tampon and a pad every few hours. It was awful. I was thinking about going to the hospital if it didn't slow down but it eventually did later on today.

I was tired, worn out and frazzled. I got dressed and drove down to McD's and got myself a frappe and I drank it and went back to sleep. I ended up sleeping most of the day away and waking up feeling awful. I had a yogurt and felt a little better. Then it was off to the shower and on to the grocery store. I tried to get more protein choices: some marinated pork tenderloins, veggie burgers, turkey bacon, and turkey hot dogs. I hardly ever eat meat so this was a big step for me. I also have some egg beaters to use for breakfasts.

So I stepped back for a frappe and forward to protein choices and some more fruits (strawberries and fresh pineapple chunks) and veggies (some cukes). I find that I feel better when I eat good food and make positive choices.

Thanks for all your positive comments and thanks for reading!

We all have set backs and having to give up favorites is not the easiest. However you jumped right back on the horse, so to say, and realize that you feel better when making healthier choices. You'll do just fine!
