A New Nickname?

I am not a turkey person.

Sure the bacon wrapped turkey was awesome but I was more excited about the bacon then I was the bird. Turkey is like a big old chicken which also is not a fave of mine. So thanksgiving, for me, is all about the sides.

With the exception of green beans, my sides included a cornucopia of carb filled goodness.

Mashed Potatoes
Cranberry Sauce
Sweet Potatoes
And let’s not forget Pumpkin Pie for dessert.

I had stuffing and turkey for lunch on Friday, basically all the leftovers on Friday night dinner, and we had another Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday with the extended family including all the stuff I mentioned above. I was out of control.

As were my blood sugars. I do not think I had a reading below 300 most of the weekend. I just kept bolusing and bolusing all weekend long! It was awful as far as my bg goes but awesome for the taste buds.

Maybe I should call myself “LP” for Liquid Paper since all I do is CORRECT these days.

How was your holiday?

Not too bad. I had some RPS issues that kept me from overdoing it, unfortunately (in fact I was running low most of the weekend 'cos I couldn't keep food down...erk!). Today I'm feeling better enough to surf the OC blogosphere, so that's an improvement :).

Liquid Paper indeed. Do any of the kids in the computer era even know how to use it (ha ha)?!?!

Hope you're feeling better soon!

"LP" ... it rolls off the tongue ALMOST as smooth as "G-Money"... almost.

I swear I'm popping shirt buttons today. Not a good sign...

Ugh - Thanksgiving day itself wasn't too bad, but the leftovers on Friday and Saturday were ugly. I need to workout big time to burn these excessive calories!

LP is good, but SuperG is bettah. ;)

LP is a cool nickname, I hear ya on that front.

I made it through T-Day OK, but Sat & Sun evenings were LP big time!!!

Now repeat after me: 'Let's all just step away from the carbohydrates'.

(Hope the shirts turn out well... having they screened is probably your best bet.)

LP Ninja - It certainly has a nice ring to it!

Thanksgiving wasn't too bad but Friday night I had a glass of wine. Later that night when I couldn't get out of hypoland I remembered why I don't do that too often.
