Default Well that was dumb!

Have done so well for 5 weeks in Bali and then yesterday I fell (or more likely jumped!) Off my very own cliff, not fiscal but carb.

Last day in Bali and we wondered off the beach as it looked like rain and went into a cafe overlooking the sea for lunch and then it happenned. With no forethought whatsoever I ordered Pasta and ate 5 pieces of garlic bread. I was like an alcoholic going on a bender and back came the cravings. For dinner Mie Goreng (fried noodles etc) and then a chocolate truffle Magnum on the way home.

Got up this morning and with justifiable trepidation tested my blood. I knew it wouldn't be my normal 4 or 5 but 12.3!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so mad at myself and waiting for the big plummet to hit. Still on the upside...the world did not end!

((((Hillary)))) Been there, done that. Dunno what happens, but it's almost over before it starts . . . as you say, no forethought whatever. Just 'boom' over the cliff!

You will be hyper-carb-sensitive, for days to come -- and possibly craving, too.

Be careful and you can get back to your usual faster!

AND forgive yourself!

I fell off the carb cliff last night myself. It started at lunch where I scraped the tuna+mayo off half of the sandwich, but not the other. Dark chocolates as dessert. One piece of soya+linseed toast this morning.

Like you, I'm traveling. It's harder to keep on track when you're not in control of your own food or the timing. At home I eat a snack every 2-2.5 hours, so I'm not starved by the time I eat a meal. I haven't been doing that while away.

I've had 2 hour post-prandial highs in the 160s (around 9), but fasting still is in the pre-diabetic range (100-101). It's pouring rain, so I can't walk after meals. I'm going to try to get back on the wagon starting today, but if not, I'm not going to beat myself up. I'll just do better when I get home.

Oh, and the multiple cups of tea with milk instead of my usual black coffee isn't helping, but there's no way I'm going to ask for cream for my tea in England!

I just bought a small plastic bottle to travel with my own cream-- and keep the carton in the hotel room refrigerator. Traveling is a challenge!

Im not travelling yet, but eating out most of the time is the problem for me. Weekends are the worst. If Im good with the meal, Im stuck with what to drink and so it goes. Its frustrating.

Abra (on another thread) I take my hat off to you.
