Managed to somehow forget to take my insulin before bed last night.. My body’s been mad at me for it today :/
Took Kaitlyn to the fair for face painting and rides on Saturday :)

For anyone on a restricted diet, this handy app can be useful..
Back in May, a client contacted me to build this app based on his website, so I am happy to say that it is now in the iOS app store :)
How this works is you choose one type of food that a recipe may call for (like ground beef), then enter the amount it calls for, followed by what you want to sub it for (like ground turkey for example), and the result is you have how much you need to sub, and what the differences are in terms of carbs, calories, etc.
Like I said handy, and an app I was happy to work on.
Oh yeah.. Android coming in the next week or so too :)

My 4 year old has learned a new way to keep from sharing her food..
If she is eating a snack, and I ask for a bite.. She says “No! It has sugar!”
And later she’ll tell me I can’t have any of that type of snack anymore because I’m diabetic..
She’s also fascinated with watching me take my blood sugar and insulin shots, and ask if they hurt.
She’s 4.. I can’t help but feel bad that she knows about this stuff already..
I know I haven’t been as on top of updating this blog as I should be..
Things have been extremely busy with Kaitlyn and her year end things..
Starting Tae Kwan-Do..
And me, being the dad, of course, has to be involved in all of this.. So it’s been a busy few weeks. :)
