BS: 77 @ 6:15a
– 2s bread w. SB (no honey) [34 carbs] + 2 chomps @ 6:30a –
Insulin: 3u @ 7:07a
– 7 mile walk / run –
Felt great during the run despite the heat.
BS: 201 @ 10am
Alternative could have been to skip the chomps and aim at 27-30 carbs + coconut water throughout run.
Because of the whole phone debacle it was an hour before I got home.
BS: 212 @ 11:15a
Had (flavored) greek yogurt and vitamuffin before rushing to catch a train [40+ carbs].
Did same insulin formula as in the past – 10u.
Had the perfect summer lunch put together by a friend :
Salad with chicken & avocado + fruit salad. Midway of eating it I went to 51 @ 1:32p. So I had to slices of bread (16 carbs) + GT. (stupid blood-sugar ruining a perfect meal)
Laid out in the sun …. 68 @ 3:36p. Went for the OJ
95 @ 5:02p (they’re going to have to up the number of strips I get …)
We went inside for fruit salad + chips and salsa (and I was really mindful of how many chips).
298 @ 7:06 … WTF ?
Was reminded to alway make sure you have enough insulin before leaving the house … I had 3 units. So not cool when we’re baking!
We went to a diner for dinner – I went for Omelet / skipped the carbs.
Then I gambled and did insulin once I got back to the city at midnight without doing a blood test first (which is just stupid) and went low (duh).
Aside from the late night, I felt like it was a really balanced day (I finally had that cupcake once I was near insulin) I was annoyed to have Glucose Tablets & Orange Juice crash the party.
And that is a day in the life of a (/this) diabetic.
