okay, so i knew that before i had to go in for the torturous three hour glucose tolerance test, i had to be on a "Strict Diet" (as the info sheet said) for three days. the thing is, i didn't look too closely at the sheet until i actually had to start the diet on saturday. it was a terrible, horrible, awful three days. all 3 meals of the day were laid out precisely as to how much to eat (eg. 2 oz of meat on bread for lunch...that's a third of a can of tuna...WITHOUT mayo!) and there was no room for snacking, which was probably the hardest part, since i'm so used to grazing throughout the day. no, i take that back...the hardest part was not being allowed to eat ANY fruit!! (unless you call 1 cup of fruit juice with breakfast fruit). i was literally hungry for three days straight. so, i had the test yesterday, had blood drawn 4 different times in the course of 3 hours, and, having fasted for 12 hours before the test, i felt slightly foggy as i stumbled out to my car. thankfully, i made it safely to the nearest mcdonalds, where i scarfed down a "healthy" chicken blt sandwich and some golden fries. ahh! the relief! then, when i got home, i finally gave in to that sweet, juicy pluot that had been tempting me for days. oh, and let's not forget that it was halloween, so....i ate a lot of candy. just making up for the past 3 days!
i find out the results either today or tomorrow, i believe. i dearly hope everything is normal because right now when i think about the holidays coming up and not being able to indulge, i could literally cry.
in happier news, i get to go on a date with gramps this friday (that's josh's grandpa). he is taking me to babies r us to do some shopping...yipee! i've never actually been to a babies r us store yet, and i'm really excited. the crib is all put together and the bedding is on. i'm going to take pictures soon. okay, that's all i have time for right now because i gotta get to work. oh, and happy november everyone!
