When the body fights an illness or a cold ....

Since getting over the flu and now battling sniffles, sneezing and a mild cough, the body can raise the sugar levels just from this fight. So, here are my readings to represent that fight.

As for the food, my menu has been rather simple this week. I eat eight 2 slices of WASA crisp bread with a meat spread or cheese slice OR 1 bowl of cold toasted cheerios w/ 2% milk OR 1 bowl of hot low-sugar oatmeal w/ 2% milk for breakfast, then either a tuna salad w/ crackers & apple sauce OR a home-cooked meal for lunch and for dinner usually a home-cooked meal. I have been drinking mainly decaf tea or coffee and lots of water.

I have slowly increased my exercise again. Yesterday morning I did 15 minutes rowing. The day before, I did 15 minutes rowing in the morning and evening, in addition to a 30-minute walk during lunch.

I plan on doing exercise again tonight, as well as this weekend.
