I feel like I've been gone for 2 years, not 2 weeks.  I was in Italy and only ate a very small crust of bread twice during that time and ate no pasta whatsoever.  I chose to eat the bread consciously about a week apart so the blood sugar could recover.  Not sure if that's valid but that's my explanation and :P to anyone who wags a finger.  Hope everyone is doing fine here.  Now, back to real life.... shocked

Well, I didn't miss the pasta because there's so much other food to eat! Lots of eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, salads, olives, cheese, cured meats like salami and prosciutto, chicken, fish, game. And - I might add that portions are not as large as we expect here at home.  I'll tell you what, though - it was tough resisting the bread to sop up the juices on the plate.  cry   However, I behaved.  Somehow, I think the wine sort of made me forget about the bread? tongue

Italy, eh?! So that's where you've been :-) Good for you (I envy you). I'm glad to hear you had a great time. Glad you're back, too!

Cheers,
Kris

P.S. There was a post while you were away, inquiring about the home A1C tests. Wondering if you ever did the one you bought and what your results were?

Yeah, in the Piedmont west of Torino but they were having a warm, dry summer.  At least the nights were cool.  I haven't used the Relion A1c test kit yet.  Actually, I'm afraid of the results because I've been 'off' a bit because of my MIL's visit in the spring/early summer.   mad   And I'm not blaming her; if I changed my habits it's my fault. In any case, I might as well do the test now (after I go exercise for a few hours.....will that help?).
