Yesterday I talked about the only real stress about diabetes that I get is when it comes to re-ordering my pump supplies. Of course there is other stress involved, but I don’t allow myself to stress for very long. Except when it comes to one major thing, football. That is right, my Philadelphia Eagles stress me the f*ck out! This year is going to be even more stressful because of all the off-season acquisitions that we received. I am not going to speak too much about football here, but basically every year that football starts my blood sugars get a little out of control.
I go to the bar to watch the games and I am constantly snacking throughout the whole game. But not this year. I am challenging myself not to snack throughout the game and I am also going to try and eat before I go to the game and then after the game in order to save money while I am there. I am also working on my mental toughness that I had in high school and was very disciplined and not lazy and it was all about mental toughness.
I don’t ever bring my meter with me to the bar. Once again, this is changing as well. It will go into Amanda’s purse and I will test my sugar after the first 3 quarters and then the fourth quarter, well, it’s the fourth quarter and I am just going to have to tough it out.
Bring on football and bring on the stress!
