Tomorrow I will be attending four NCAA tournament games in Providence. I'm beyond excited and can't wait to attend one of the greatest sports tournaments in the world. I will enjoy the games, I will have some food I shouldn't (pizza, burgers, fries, etc.) and I will have a few beers with my buddy as we wait for the second session of games. Sounds like a perfect day, it will be a perfect day but I will be doing my best to keep my blood sugar in range while enjoying the games and food I very rarely eat. The buddy that I'm going to the games with knows all about my diabetes and how passionate I am about keeping my blood sugar in range. He is honestly the only one (besides Leanne) that is allowed to ask me how my blood sugar is. He will be happy that I have my CGM on and will give me a very hard time if my blood sugar is below or above my set range. He will also keep an eye on my beer intake, I rarely drink so two beers will have me feeling good.
I will be in good hands tomorrow, I will be putting pressure on myself to stay in range and will be getting pressure from a friend to be in range. This will not take away my enjoyment of the day or the games. If I didn't care about my blood sugars tomorrow I wouldn't have fun, I passionate about basketball and my diabetes. That passion will allow me to be at my best diabetes wise and at the end of the day that is all that matters, not the basketball games!!
