Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Hope you have had a good year and have started or continued following a low carb lifestyle. (Or these days, it can be called a Keto lifestyle.) If so, well done! If not, there’s no time like the present to start or restart a healthy lifestyle. You don’t even have to wait until the New Year to make a difference in your health.
I am so thankful for the technology we have available to us at home to keep track of how our choices affect our bodies. We have home glucometers and even home A1c tests so we can see how we’re doing without having to visit the doctor’s office.
I am so pleased I was able to test at home a few days ago and see that my A1c is 4.9! It may not always be such good news, but that just gives me the incentive to make better choices so my next test will show a better level.
I hope you’re taking advantage of technology to see how your choices are affecting your BGL and A1c and making adjustments when necessary to meet your goals. My personal goal is to keep my A1c under 5, which is at a non-diabetic level. I’m happy my last test showed I’ve met my goal… For now! I know it won’t stay there without constant vigilance, but constant vigilance is already my normal lifestyle.
For Christmas dinner, I plan to have roast chicken, whipped cauliflower with coconut flour gravy, olives, and a broccoli/cauliflower/squash medley. Now I’m off to make myself a Mini Raspberry Pie for my Christmas dessert tomorrow. YUM! 8+d
Again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
