Just call me stupid

If you could see my forehead today you’d see that it had the word ‘Idiot’ written on it. Yesterday I was very, very stupid. The day started with breakfast on the port. This is pleasant enough but involves eating croissant and baguette. Both are the worst things to eat for someone diagnosed as pre-diabetic. Later, I bought some bread from the supermarket as this is a holiday weekend here too. I chose old fashioned baguettes as the flour is different and slightly better for you. We had a sandwich for lunch which I don’t usually have these days, though I did have a plateful of salad with it. Olivier worked his first full day at the towers so Rob suggested McDonalds as a treat for him. Again I had salad but the burger bun is white bread, then I couldn’t resist a mcFlurry with crumble topping…

My blood sugar reading wasn’t as high as I expected it to be after such a sinful day but I woke up in the night feeling dreadful and I had indigestion . Today I feel… hung over!

Recently we were shown the documentary Super Size Me on French TV where the brave Morgan Spurlock submitted himself to fast food and no exercise for a month. He damaged his health more than anyone would have imagined. He was very healthy and fit at the start, I wonder what would have happened if he hadn’t have been so fit..

Recently I’ve lost a bit of weight, just be being sensible and cutting down on quantity. I’ve also been feeling very well and having good blood sugar readings, despite a little treat from time to time. I’m so disappointed with myself for sliding so far backwards

Hang in there and keep on pluggin.
The best thing is not to put in the fridge what you can't eat.
I know its hard with a family but maybe they should have their own fridge lol
Take care.:)

Hi Anji, thanks for the post which has reminded me to be careful of that French bread, as fast as sugar into the blood stream! Two weeks and I have to resist all the temptations France has to offer or pay for it later.

A Lady's Life: When there are two of us in September buying the right food will be so much easier.

Caroline: The posh touristy chocolate shops in La Rochelle sell chocolate sardines. Fortunately, they are too expensive for the likes of me. Last night I drank sangria without checking the bottle for ingredients - I'll never learn!
