New York City

Hi Ya'll,
This past summer I went to New York City for the first time in my life. I went with my sister and nephew. We had such a wonderful time. Saw so much in the short 5 days we were there. The only thing was I was just really not feeling well while we were there. And still didn't feel right for the next couple of months. So went to my Doc and found out I was diabetic.
This is a new venture for me. I guess it has forced me to get back in shape and eat healthy. I've tried for years,but now it's a must. It's been an adventure trying to find what works with me. I eat the wrong thing and my sugar goes up. I've given up sweets for over a month and when I ate something at Christmas, boy it was too sweet. It's just playing the number game now.
I am going to use my Crafts as a way to keep me busy. Boy, did it keep me busy during the holidays. I made gifts for co-workers and didn't even think about snacking at night. So crafting will have to be my not snacking crutch...lol..
Anyone out there diabetic?? What good recipes do you have? Oh, I ate some potatoes yesterday for lunch,,well, that shot my numbers way up. So no potatoes for me for quite sometime..
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful New Year.


  1. I would hate being diabetic. I am hopelessly addicted to McDonald's sweet tea and down here in NC, they make it very sweet!
    My sister is diabetic, but she doesn't follow the diet. She still eats sweets and "says" the dr. told her she's allowed! We can't force her to eat healthy. She's type 2. I really don't even know what that is, but I do know that she doesn't have to do shots.
    Sounds like you're being much more careful than she is. Good for you!!! I know it must be hard. And potatoes? I love them too! Guess I better count my blessings. :)

    Thanks for following my blog. I'll follow yours too. :)
