Luckily I work with a fellow type 1 diabetic, I wrote about him back in February. John is as competitive as I am, everyday we test our blood sugar at break and at lunch. Whoever has the better blood sugar gets bragging rights. All of the coworkers get a kick out of it as well, they even try to guess what blood sugar will be. On Friday John and I decided to make our blood sugar competition official. From today until Labor Day we will keep track of who has the better blood sugar at break and at lunch. We hit a little problem when we discussed if 65 is better than 160, to solve this problem we decided that whoever has the blood sugar closest to 120 will win. That way a low blood sugar doesn't guarantee victory.
Today John kicked my butt!! He has taken the early 2-0 lead and honestly I'm pissed!! Our all star break is July 4th, whoever has the lead on the 4th gets a free dinner. The last thing I want to do is sit with John and listen to him talk about he beat be while he is enjoying a free steak dinner.
