Diabetes 365:Day 3

Today is my 
third day of 
Diabetes 365: Day 3. 

Last night/this afternoon
I attempted to make this
Scandinavian Almond Cake
from my FIL's coworker. 

Apparently this cake was AMAZING!

Well I made it first with baking sugar
as it called for 2.5 cups of sugar which to me

Plus for anything I eat, I always put in 
Splenda and not
real sugar. 

Well, I made one and for the FIRST
time in my life

cake never made it out of the pan.
EVEN with my amazing Cake Release.
Which, i will still use on every cake I make. 

I figured it was just the sugar amount, too sweet. 

Well I tried this sad cake to at least 
taste it. 

no one told me when I try just TRY
something with that much sugar in it, 

makes my blood sugar
in the 200's. 

Yeah. Never Again. 
Splenda it is from now on .

Oh, the second batch I made with splenda 
in cupcake form..

turned out great. 

Real Sugar: NO  Splenda: YES PLEASE!!!!

Diabetes 365

Today is my 
day of the Diabetes 365 day project. 

Basically, this group is for
Diabetes related pictures that takes you through
a whole year, or 365 days.

To do this challenge you need to take a photo
each day
and have it be something that relates
to you and your diabetes. 
As we live each day, 365 days of 
each year with this
we are able to show people 
through some pictures
glimpses into 
Diabetes Life.

You can follow me here for updates and also watch on my Flickr 

Hope your ready to watch my journey 
with Diabetes
each day of

so lately,
I feel like the weather recently. 

Sometimes I feel windy: Like my head is going to explode. 
Either with deadlines, appointments for clients,
multiple schedule changes
all up in the air
not knowing what real next direction
i'm supposed to go in.

Don't worry, then my clients remind me where I was going.

then there's the Rain:

days that go by so slowly, like I woke up
and i have lived 400 years in 1 day. 
okay, maybe i'm exaggerating
but i feel like sometimes I cram 
things into one day. 

then when the rain gets harder and is like pelting
your skin, 
are those days i feel rushed
of the day.

then of course there are those days where 
it starts out foggy, then snows a little,
then the sun comes out, 
and at night time comes
a thunder storm.

Don't even get me started on that kind of day. 
That is the day, i forget to bring my insulin,
forgot to charge my work cell phone.
loose my planner in the car
and my phone pretty much
BLOWS up from
phone calls.

What am i turning into comparing life to the weather. I guess i'm just ready for
some Spring action. 
Sunny skies, warm weather, 
plants, flowers
fresh veggies..

Between what my brain is doing, what my mind is thinking
how my body is reacting
to my speech jumbling all together and I can't remember what I was saying..

I think..

PHEW... One Day At A Time. 

Am I alone here? or maybe it's just me making a busy schedule..
