My Journey to a Healthy Me, Day 17

Whew, today has been a roller coaster.

This morning we took my son in for evaluation to see if he falls into the Autism spectrum. 6 hour appointment, but lasted about 4 1/2 hours. Looks like he is what they would call a High Functioning Autistic. A very slight level 1. It is more the little nuances that get him in. They said if he wasn’t as social as he is, then he would fall into a deeper category.  There are classes he can be put in to help with trying to correct some of the social nuances he has. They are minor, but there. So catching it now, and trying to work on it will help him greatly in the future.

I’m actually feeling alright with this. Now they we know what we are dealing with, it will be easier to get the correct help that he will need in the future.

Since I knew things would be a little crazy, I tried to prepare a bit. I just had some chicken meatballs for breakfast, and took some pork rinds to snack on there. Plus my trusty water was by my side. I felt like it would have been very easy for me to slip into the “Just grab something I want” at a fast food place. We did get Mcdonalds, but I went with my normal salad, and a double cheese burger with no bun, onions, or ketchup.

On the blood sugar front, my numbers are returning to normalish numbers. This is without taking the medication for a day. I probably won’t get in bloodwork tomorrow, but I will get it on Friday.

Tuesday recap

Tuesday felt like a good day for me. I think not taking my diabetes meds actually helped too. I felt much better waking up. Go Go Keto :)  Felt good enough to get in a small walk.


MyFitnessPal Food Diary.  1438 Calories, 12 net carbs.  No issues with food. It feels like I am still going strong here. I don’t feel like I have to eat all the time. Not as bad on the impulses to want to eat something not in my plan. Last couple of days, I am eating more of the chicken meatballs, and pork rinds


1.35 miles in 22 minutes. It was shorter, but I tried to maintain the intensity a bit more.


Sleep was alright. I tried lying in a different starting position last night, and I think my body wasn’t having it. I also had to get up early, because we took my kid into his appointment.

Now I am off to read, and get ready to some sleep! Good night all!


  1. First off I appreciate the fact that you are so involved with your family man that’s huge! I hope everything works out for your son. Good job with handling everything with keto food and not letting everything lead to eating unhealthy, you got this homie!
