Foody Friday

I was afraid that the steak would have raised my blood sugar overnight, but it didn’t!!  Today was my Sunday.  I have to work tomorrow and actual Sunday so I decided to relax and sleep in a little.  I met up with a friend to go running and had a pretty stress free day.  I wanted to try something new for breakfast.  So I checked out a few foodie blogs and websites and found an awesome recipe I couldn’t wait to try.

Breakfast: Apple Cheddar Popovers (I added a tablespoon of apple butter on top before I ate it)

-1 tablespoon of apple butter: 10 carbs

-1 cup of coffee: 10 carbs


Post Meal BS reading: 277

I gave myself a correction bolus when I saw that my sugar was up to 277 and it started going down, then I remembered that I was meeting my friend for a run in 40 min!  So I checked my sensor, saw it was at 164, suspended my pump and drank a 1/2 cup of juice.  As I started running I saw that my sugar was 154 and going down. So I ate a few glucose tablets.  Then it went down to 143 and I ate a few more.  Then it was at 139 so I ate every single glucose tablet in my tube (all of them).  It stayed at 130-140 for pretty much the whole workout, but I kept an eye onmy sensor and would have stopped if it went any lower than that.  By the time I got home, my BS was 187.  By the time I was ready to eat lunch I saw that it had gone down a teesny bit.

The rest of the afternoon was pretty chill for me.  I ran a few errands and got things ready for dinner. I talked to one of my oldest friends Sarah.  She’s starting grad school in the fall and I couldn’t be prouder of her.  She is so smart and such a hard worker.  NYU better watch out!  I also reconnected with another old friend, Dakin, whom I haven’t seen in 4 years. He has big things in store as well.

I don’t want my weekend to end.  I know that I’m probably going to work really late tomorrow and Sunday.  For now I’m just  going to relax and watch The Jerk.
