Carb loading


It's after dinner on day one of three days of carb loading for my glucose tolerance test. I've had 200g of carbohydrate today (the equivalent of 13 slices of bread) and I still need to have another piece of fruit, a couple more serves of vegetables and a bowl of cereal before I go to bed (I could have pasta instead of the cereal but I don't see myself whipping up some penne for supper). Feeling very full and sleepy.

Major family disaster today. My daughter does dance (jazz funk) lessons and they have a concert in two weeks. I didn't get around to buying tickets, I was waiting to hear back from grandparents but also just didn't make it a priority, and they are sold out! I am on a list in case someone doesn't need theirs but as I am halfway down the second page of names I just don't see that happening. I haven't told my daughter yet. Horrible stuff-up on my part. I don't know what to do about it. I wonder if there is a chance I'll be able to watch her bit of the final dress rehearsal? She's only nine and very excited about the concert. We bought $60 worth of costume and $85 worth of make-up for it, plus $20 for a lesson on how to apply stage make-up. She is going to be very upset if none of her family can be there. I'm waiting to talk to my husband first but I don't know if there is a solution.

  1. I hope you get a ticket! You would think the families would have at least a couple reserved for them. I know nothing about dance concerts, though!
