My life in trash

Detectives often look in people's trash to get clues regarding their lives, habits, secrets. So I thought it would be interesting to keep track of what I threw away today...

1. 1 Starbuck's Venti cup (one day old; "calm" teabag included")
2. 1 foil creamcheese wrapper (Walmart brand; 1/3 less fat)
3. 1 medium coffee cup from campus coffee shop
4. 1 hershey's kiss wrapper--the silver and brown striped kind
5. 1 Snickers "fun size" wrapper
6. 1 USA Today (money and sports sections intact; cover and life sections disheveled)
7. 1 piece of plastic wrap, with tomato sauce on it

I'm noticing a food trend here, so I might as well continue the list. My munching pattern, today:

1. 1 Hershey's Hug
2. 1 fun-size snickers
3. 3 tablespoons cajun trailmix
4. 3 chocolate-covered almonds
5. several handfuls of chocolate chips and marshmallows
6. 2 Jello Jigglers (I had to eat those, my nieces and nephews made 'em for me)

...the above list is why I should not work at home.

Number of low blood sugars today:


Number of high blood sugars today:

too many.

Next doctor's appointment:


Projected AiC: 6.8

Weight: Too much.

Isn't it crazy what our garbage can make people think?

I have often, at the end of the day, looked at my trash and wondered just what the wonderful folks who empty it think of me.

Food wrappers and more food wrappers. Thank god for carb counts on those packages!

If you were to look in the back seat floor of my truck, you would think I was part owner of McDonald's AND Burger King! I LOVE a big cold icy glass of diet coke from there!

I too would have trouble working from home - there's just too much opportunity for trouble. Although, I admit, I'm pretty good at finding that same (or worse) trouble in the vending machines at the office.

I have this sinking feeling that I've asked this before. If so, I apologize in advance.

I'm curious, how are you basing your A1c estimate? Off your average meter readings? Do you use a look-up table somewhere? Do you feel like your meter readings correspond well with your A1c readings?

And like Scott, literally, the entire foot-well directly behind the driver's seat in my car is FULL of diet coke and diet sunkist cans.

My car is my garbage can.
