I screwed up via my blood sugar testing & bolusing.
Me, the woman who's OCD when it comes to testing, decided to play bloodsugar.bolus roulette and lost!
Today's numbers had been great- actually, a bit on the low side - I'd been in the 80's (not the actual decade) all morning, and yesterday I didn't go above 142.
Most of the morning I was running around for work, but did manage a snack of peanut butter and banana with soy milk & didn't bolus for my snack.
By the time I was ready to eat lunch, I wasn't hungry, but was looking forward to some left over Greek salad with chicken. I was in a hurry and decided not to test, and bolused a unit.
Normally, I don't bolus for a Greek chicken salad, but since I'd eaten a big old banana and peanut butter 1.5 hours earlier, I thought I'd play it safe.
Cut to the past hour - I've been popping SweeTarts like crazy and have been unable to get my numbers above 64.
1. When in doubt, test - especially when your running low or high
2. 1 unit of insulin makes a BIG difference
3. Sometimes we win at Blood Sugar & or Bolus Roulette & sometimes we lose- but we always learn~
