Light up my life...

I treated myself to some Vera yesterday...I know right? What a shocker!! One of the groups I interact with regularly at work was nice enough to give me a gift card, so the good news was...it didn't cost me anything. So really, this it isn't that bad. I decided to get something that I had been eyeing for several months...a cute little lamp with a Peacock lampshade. I'm undecided where to keep it at the moment. Should I take it to the office? Should I put it on my writing desk? Should I put it on the desk in my bedroom? So many decisions...but it is so cute.

It is a treat (with no carbs) in salute to my continued focus on being a good diabetic. The past week, despite some rather momentous moments at work, went really well for me. My blood sugars were pretty good. I managed to exercise each night except for one. I have been rather calm despite some long work days and I know that it is because I took time for me each day. Walking before bedtime is the key for me...I let the stress of the day fade away and it also makes the next morning's blood sugar much lower. I really hope that I can keep this up next week too. It is a must..

And in case you curious about any whether or not there is any icing on the cake so far, I am also down 9 pounds already. :)
