Before I left the house I tested and was 154. I was happy and gave myself 6 units. Giving myself insulin in advance is a bit risky but knowing the restaurant I knew the food would come quick and I always order the same thing so I felt good. Breakfast was great and the company even better. After running a few quick errands my wife and I decided to stop by the high school and check out the wrestling tournament. After about 45 minutes I had a new respect for real wrestlers, I still have no idea how it works but it was interesting to watch.
Returning home around 11 I tested again before I headed out for a hill workout on the bike. I was 182, a perfect sugar to have going in to a workout. I knocked my basal down to 9% and began stretching. Heading out on the bike around 1130 I felt really strong on the bike. As I rode the 2 miles to my workout hill I began thinking about the possibilities ahead of me on the bike. It's January and my body is in mid-June cycling shape. I'm excited for the first race of the season. Do I think I can win, of course if I didn't why would I enter a race. I just have to keep up with the daily work to stay in peak shape.
Returning home around 1230 I felt off. I quickly looked at my pump which read 77. I thought this can’t be good, my pump is always off by at least 15 when my sugar drops below 80. I quickly got all of my cycling gear off and headed upstairs with a juice box already half gone. When I tested I was 49. I think my workout took a lot more out of me than I had thought. I began eating my post workout power bar and finished up my juice box. I tested 15mins later and was 93, I could now worry about lunch and get some insulin in to my body. Not feeling to hungry I poured a bowl of cereal and gave myself 4 units.
After a long nap I awoke around 330 feeling rested and a lot better. I took a peak at my pump and was 132. I poured a bowl of cereal for an early dinner. I would be heading to my nieces birthday party and really didn’t want to put pizza in to my body. I gave myself 5.4 units knowing that I would have a slice. The party was very nice and it was great to see a lot of my wifes family. My blood sugars stayed right around 120 for the 4hrs. I was happy with my day thus far and decided to meet a few friends out to watch the NFL game and just catch up. Other than a quick low around 10pm the day was a success. I would return home around 11pm and test to make myself feel better before heading to bed. I was 110, that works for me. Time to turn in and call it a day.
