My diet this weekend has been a little crazy, with a 8pm dinner last night it was difficult to find the right foods to hold me over until the late dinner. Other than my breakfasts my meals have had foods out of the ordinary for me. The meals were not my ordinary pasta, grains, and vegetables which I'm accustom to eating day in and day out. This in turn could effect how my body reacts to the insulin and also I'm not 100% that I was covering these foods correctly.
As the marathon approaches I can already feel this odd calmness coming over me. My shutdown process has already begun, by Friday I will be very quiet and very focused on the task at hand. With that attitude comes severe diabetes OCD, I know that my blood sugars will not go above 200 from Monday morning until next Sunday. It is hard to explain but this week I will take my diabetes control to another level, I will be eating the same thing day in and day out and taking the same insulin for each meal. That is why I can shake off this bad diabetes weekend and not worry about the week ahead. Now if my blood sugars stay around 200 tomorrow then the anger will come in, which is the last thing I want.
