Not Today


40 minutes after 61 carbs
I started this blog in hopes it would help me manage my diabetes. By blogging, I would test, carb count, exercise, and write what worked and what didn't. Today, I didn't want to play. I didn't want to test. I didn't want to log food, exercise or numbers. So I didn't until tonight when I wanted sweet potato casserole from Boston Market where one serving is 80 carbs. Pretty much my entire carb count. So I tested ..... 105 mg/dL at 7:50pm. I ate 1/2 of the sweet potatoes,  some of the chicken, and all of the steamed vegetables. 61 carbs.  Yeah - I know.  Steamed vegetables to ease the guilt!! 164 mg/dL 40 minutes later and 197 mg/dL an hour and 30 minutes later. Ok, high enough glucose!! Hop on the Precor for 20 minutes and dropped that number to 136 mg/dL. Although I feel like I failed, I succeeded in getting the number down the only way that really works for me - exercise.  Tomorrow is another day.
