Diabetes and the holidays …


So I have blogged about this before, but they are upon us now.

What should you be doing/not doing or doing differently during the holidays.

We all know that glucose control is one way in the week and quite a different way on the weekend and holidays. This is partly because we are human and life is well just not always easy and letting your hair down usually goes with a bit of alcohol (if you are old enough) and a bit of cheating (dare I say it).

So all things considered, where does this leave you with your diabetes?

Consider it. Be mindful of it. Carb count it. Accurately.

With the holidays come a little bit of time – that we don’t usually have. Choose to exercise – must be something you love. Be creative. Horse ride or bike ride or dance!

Factor the exercise in. IF you are not sure how to do this, consult someone. Even if you are on holiday – trust me most of us (health care folk) are at work : dieticians, GP’s, nurse educators etc.

Don’t just go ape on yourself. It’s so much harder to get back the lost ground.

Enjoy yourself but be fair about it. Restraint is required.

Give yourself a Christmas present of being present more often. This will carry through to the new year and be a wonderful asset.

Top sites that I feel are invaluable : http://www.fatsecret.co.za – south african ,excellent for carb counting and so much more!, pinterest has awesome pictograms of diabetes.

Feel free to share your best app, resource with me.

Merry Christmas.
