I had a great workout! Suprisingly, I was the only there and had control of the tv! Watched the tale end of Rachael Ray (gorgeous scallops with a butter bread crumb topping!) and the first part of Barefoot Contessa (a gorgeous fruit plate, and now I know how to cut a fresh pineapple!).
But let’s start with my lunch!
- 1/2 block of Ramen noodles (noodles only)
- 3 ounces bean sprouts
- 3 ounces diced red cabbage
- 3 ounces chopped broccoli
- 3 ounces chopped baby carrots
- 2 tablespoons spicy Korean bbq sauce (20 calories a tablespoon – and VERY spicy!)
Because this takes so long to eat, I end up taking half of my insulin, eating half, then taking the rest of my insulin and that works out pretty well.
Although before I worked out my blood sugar was 189, which is okay (I may have underestimated the carbs in my grapefruit!) and when I got back I tested it and it was 262 – what??!!
I tried two other fingers and both gave me a 98 reading, so I am sticking with that.
My elliptical workout is only 35 minutes. Since my treadmill starts at 60:00 minutes and counts down, I made this cheat sheet for myself and just tape it on the machine.
For 35 minutes I did 2.0 miles exactly and it said I burned 195 calories, but again, who knows!
Come back tonight for my Potato Horseradish Crusted Mahi Mahi recipe!
