Quote/Christopher Reeve

“You should take some responsibility for the way you present yourself. But you should not be hung up on your looks, whether you are ugly or handsome, because it isn’t an achievement.”

It/Poem

There is something lurking for me

It takes a hold of my hopes and dreams

I cannot escape its powerful grasp

It wants me to cry and give up at last.

I will summon my strength and get back control

I do not like it here

What lies in the dark needs to stay hidden

Past debts that have been paid, they need to be forgiven.

Glycemic Index/Diabetic News

As some may have read, I am a Type 2 Diabetic. I try to help other’s that may not know a lot about Diabetes. There is a lot of information out on the web and it can get daunting and sometimes confusing.

I just want to say, I am not licensed nor I am a medical expert. Any information I use to share should be followed up with your own doctor, should you choose to follow it.

Any information I share is for informational purposes, only.

Below I have a glycemic chart to look at , the lower the glycemic index, the better for less impact on your blood sugars. The higher on the glycemic index  the worse it is for your blood sugars. This chart is very helpful, feel free to copy and share.

I also have copied the blood sugar readings that are standard for Diabetics. There can be some give and take to them, it just depends on what you and your doctor has come up with for your specific needs.

I hope this information will be helpful.

blood sugar levels

The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of the effect carbohydrates have on blood glucose levels. Understanding the GI values of specific foods can help reduce harmful spikes in blood sugar, as sugars and carbohydrates are broken down and your metabolism releases insulin to aid in digestion. Limiting your intake of high GI foods is a first-step towards controlling your cravings, increasing energy, and weight loss.

 

The GI is entirely based on the quality of carbohydrates and sugars you are in taking, not the quantity (although if you want to include portion control as well you can look at Glycemic Load (GL) of foods, looking for levels < 20). By it’s very definition, foods with minimal to no carbohydrates will have no measurable GI value — so in general carb-free foods such as most meats, seafood, poultry, and vegetables have no GI value.
Foods with a low GI (scores of 0-54) help you feel less hungry, provide you with a feeling of having more energy, and may lead to weight loss and provide a reduced risk of diabetes and improved heart health. While looking through these GI scores, please be aware by itself this does NOT constitute a diet — there are some fruits with higher GI scores than some less-healthy processed food snacks. The food list by itself is not a diet plan, it’s simply a measure on the effect of how your body breaks down the carbohydrates and that food’s impact on your insulin. To learn more, see our blood sugar chart.
Foods with a high GI score are associated with a fast, sharp spike in insulin. This often leads to intense cravings shortly after you’ve just eaten – for me a good example is after eating a toasted bagel.

So You Say

I am not a trained dog

I do not follow your every command

Look at you standing there spewing out demands,

I do what I need to

Not necessarily what I want

That is the difference you see.

You so do what you want

And try to dictate the rest to me.

Please do me a favor and fix that

I will respond better if you can.

Shadow People/Poem by MwsR

In a world where things seldom are as they seem,

There is a place where things are.

You can find a place where things enlighten you

Just like the one where shadow people become true.

Comical they imitate you and follow your every move.

They will dance when you dance, move when you move, and most certainly stay near you.

They see the land of dark and are not afraid to come out.

Always stealing a move when you are up and about.

They take each opportunity they can to get your attention

They see so much, it is hard to make mention.

Shadow people are among the few that like you just for who you are.

They ask no questions, tell you no lies, and like to be near.

What more could a person ask for?

They take on the forms of whatever is around.

Be careful what you show them though,

They will show it back to you

Even the excess weight  you might have and your silhouette too.

Shadow people are great for telling your secrets to

They won’t tell those to another or fuss at you.

I like this world of dark where my shadow people stay

Just don’t think I’m crazy for what I had to say.

 

 

 

Shadow Dancing/ Song

Ah, I love the Bee Gees! I don’t necessarily know any group of guys whose voices were that high-pitched and could make it sound great, in my teenage years. I have loved these guys forever. Too bad their group is no more but their music will live on and on.  Enjoy!

Andy Gibb – Shadow Dancing Lyrics
(written by Barry/Robin/Maurice/Andy Gibb)
You got me looking at that heaven in your eyes
I was chasing your direction
I was telling you no lies
And I was loving you
When the words are said, baby, I lose my head
And in a world of people, there’s only you and I
There ain’t nothing come between us in the end
How can I hold you when you ain’t even mine
Only you can see me through
I leave it up to you

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

All that I need is just one moment in your arms
I was chasing your affection
I was doing you no harm
And I was loving you
Make it shine, make it rain, baby I know my way
I need that sweet sensation of living in your love
I can’t breath when you’re away, it pulls me down
You are the question and the answer am I
Only you can see me through
I leave it up to you

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

And in this world of people there’s only you and I
There ain’t nothing come between us in the end
Ah, how can I hold you when you ain’t even mine
Only you can see me through
I leave it up to you

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more
