Blog 30 Days of Diabetes--Day 11

Veteran’s Day – Veterans Day marks end of World War 1 in 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Is there something you do every day at the same time to help with your diabetes routine? 

Well, I am not the one with diabetes....not yet, anyway. But my daughter usually takes her Lantus around the same time each day. We try to have our meals around the same time each day, to the best of our ability. Which also means she checks her blood sugar about the same time each day. And I think she goes to bed about the same time each day.

If we want to talk about someone who did certain things at the same time each day, that would my grandfather. He ate his meals at the same time every day. Breakfast consisted of the same foods, pretty much: half a grapefruit, small bowl of cereal, small glass of juice....

Breakfast and supper he'd eat in his apartment at the retirement center, and lunch at the cafeteria. Every afternoon, he would go to the laundry facility, where they had weight lifting equipment, and would work out (and he was in his late 90s!!!). He went to church every week.

Others could have set their clocks by his activities!

I miss him, very much....even though it has been nearly 12 years since he passed away. Pin It Now!
