A bowl of pasta last night for dinner started my day of a little rough, I was at 223 but feeling good. No CGM today due to it falling out while getting dressed for work, just before break I felt a tad low and was excited to test and see where I was at. I got in and went to my designated diabetes shelf in the break room and realized that I used my last strip on Friday afternoon!!! After letting out a curse word I regained my composure and reminded myself that I'm a creature of habit, I have been in that situation before. I may not have known my blood sugar but I can guesstimate and be just fine. Obviously that is what I had to do, I very cautious the rest of the day, I made sure that I had a soda with me just in case I was low. I felt great all day long and even went to the gym before going home and testing my blood sugar. I'm not proud of that but I believed in myself and took the extra precautions just in case, again I don't want to do this ever again and would not recommend that others try it.
When I got home from the gym my blood sugar was at 197, I had my post workout snack and was back to normal. I made sure to test a few more times in the two hours before dinner, I did not have a day of blood sugars to judge how my evening would go. I will be using duct tape to make sure that I don't forget my test strips tomorrow morning. I was thinking about taping them to my leg but I decided to put them in my car, that way I will not forget them.
