I have been working endlessly on some new projects for some new sites. I also found out that I am pregnant with my third child. I am thrilled but pregnancy is rough on me because of my Diabetes. It makes what I eat become the most important thing of the day and it is exhausting.
I was recently put on restriction so that makes it a little worse but I started adding in more exercise. The exercise keeps my blood glucose levels stable. I also have been trying to cut out refined carbohydrates like white bread which seem to wreak havoc on my levels. It isn’t just sugar that affects a Diabetic even starchy veggies like corn and potatoes can be detrimental to maintaining proper glucose levels.
The last few months I have just been taking care of me instead of worrying about what I was making or what I needed to post. Instead, I have been pinning like crazy all the new baby stuff I want to make. I also have been taking care of me because I need to. it suddenly stopped being about me doing it for everyone else and finally just doing it for me.
I think sometimes we just have to take care of ourselves even if you don’t have an illness like mine. I am excited to share my journey with all of you!
