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.

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.
