My workout went very well; the most important part was that my blood sugar didn’t move. For an hour I was no higher than 125 and no lower than 112. My blood sugars stayed constant as I did set after set of deadlifts, lunges, rows and ab hangs. As I prepared to leave the gym I unsuspended my pump, I meant to put in six units to reintroduce insulin and to cover the protein shake I was about to consume. I’m not sure what or how I got distracted but I totally forgot to put any insulin in to my body. As I was driving home all of a sudden my breathes seemed very dry, I thought to myself I must be dehydrated, I can’t be high because my blood sugar was perfect and I took a shot. I drank more water but when I arrived home I looked at my pump and my last shot was at 7:14. I can’t repeat what I said but the sugar was about to hit the fan. My blood sugar was 139 and had the evil double arrows next to it. I quickly gave myself eight units, in the middle of the pump giving me insulin it began to beep. After the insulin had gone in to my body, my pump informed me that my blood sugar was over the 142 limit that I have set. I was now 150, my blood sugar had jumped 11pts in three minutes, I knew that I was headed for a high number before the insulin kicked in.
The next three hours were very annoying, I felt like absolute garbage. This could’ve easily been avoided but now I’m at 303 and my blood sugar isn’t moving down at all. Around 10am I gave myself another six units, I knew this may knock me on my ass but I needed my blood sugar to be below 200. As time went on my sugars slowly began to go down, at 11am I was 224 and now I had the double arrows again but they were pointing down. I decided to have an early lunch and gave myself 2 units to cover the peanut butter and jelly sandwich accompanied by almonds, yogurt, a fiber one bar and an apple. Time passed and my pump had not beeped, I took a peak at my blood sugar around 1pm and I was 112. Everything was back to normal after a very annoying four hour roller coaster ride.
