Pop Quiz: Are You Holiday-Ready?

No, really.  Are you ready for the season of making merry by way of overeating and drinking?Holidayeatingsign_1

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about “eating diabetic,” it’s that I only feel deprived when I’m around others who are munching away, carefree-like.  Crap!  I can’t just eat that.  It’s not that simple, you know!  Well, yeah, I could eat it, but my whole BG day will go to hell.  Oh, nevermind…

Want to find out how ready you are?  For a little something different on this month’s dLife column, I have prepared the Essential Holiday Season Prep Quiz.  Here’s an excerpt:

Q) What’s the first thing you do when it hits you that the Holiday Season is imminent?

  1. Start an immediate crash diet, from Nov.1 till Thanksgiving Day
  2. Volunteer to do all the cooking yourself this year, in pursuit of a
    healthy menu, and then stay up nights stressing as you surf the Net for
    recipes 
  3. Make an appointment to hassle your nutritionist about what the heck you should do for the next three months?
  4. Book a strategically timed getaway to Club Med Ixtapa

And guess which one I picked?  Read the column to find out.  And don’t forget to report back here with scores.  How ready are you, People?? (How ready can we ever be?)

    Great column Amy (as usual!).

    I LOVE the logo!

    Thank you for the announcement! I’m very honored to be in such great company with you guys.

    You’re making me blush over here…

    Thanks Amy!

    I too love your logo, and look forward to seeing how it will be changed once you give up the syringes and become a pumper.

    Thanks, CB. At that point the image will stand for me jettisoning syringes right out of my life for good! Neat.

    Thanks for the reminder, Amy, that Holidaze are here. Now I must go buy myself a bottle of rum, so I can drink eggnog with rum. It’s my holiday tradition.
