I had to wear a sweater this morning.
For people who live below Tennessee, this is HUGE. It means maybe we can stop sweating within 5 minutes of walking outside. I bought new boots yesterday so I had to check out some Pinterest and Instagram to figure out how to wear them. Apparently, I can’t be “basic” until I get this part right. I have almost everything else covered on that list (and have for a while…”fall” in the south is not my first rodeo…)
Before I wrestled with my in-between-sizes wardrobe to go with my snazzy boots, I ate this. Lots of bacon. Speaking of bacon…my last total cholesterol test was 146. However…times are a’ changin’ when it comes to total cholesterol. Stay tuned.
Before THAT, I tried my new glucose monitor. I LOVE this little thing. The only drawback is that it’s a little thing. I need to find a better place to keep it other than the bottom of my favorite bag. As inexpensive as they are, I will be getting a second monitor and second bottle of strips. My costs have been cut in half with both of these. I just need to test it against my doctor. Reviews are glowing with those who tested it in the doctors’ office so I’m not worried about it. What I am worried about is my number. My fasting glucose is 195. It has dropped in the 3 days that I cut sugar. My headache and irritability are skyrocketing but I know it will pass in a few more days. This is the worst part of the whole thing.
High blood sugar=Bring my own food. Ignore the sugar. That’s my plan.
InstaPot is a winner. It stays on my countertop with my most treasured appliances. That 25 minutes cooked a whole chicken. A WHOLE CHICKEN.
These 5 chicken breasts from raw to this in 8 minutes. And I love using a pressure cooker. I’ve used a stove-top one for years but I hate the high-maintenance part of it. And the fear that the top will blow off and scald my face off for life. That part is a little tricky. However, this electric one is so easy to use. Plug it in. Put in food. Push buttons. Walk away.
And this is tomorrow. Pajama Day. Best day EVER for teachers. This beats the last day of school.
It’s fall and I’m happy again.
