Diabetes Blog Week Day 1: A Day in the Life...with Diabtes
First off- thanks to Karen for a late addition to Diabetes Blog Week! So happy I can still participate!
Here is a typical day...
6:15am- Alarm clock goes off...I hit the snooze. The Hubby rustles a bit.
6:30am- snooze one last time...Hubby get up to take a shower.
6:45am- Bob Nunnelly and the C-Team on NBC4i News....must see pet pics at 6:54am so Hubby and I can get a good laugh at stupid comments.
7:00am- Watch news headlines and finally drag myself...and my pump...out of bed.
7:05am- De-pump and get into the shower. I'm wondering what my BG is by this point.
7:20am- out of the shower and into the closet. Trying to decide what to wear and most importantly...where to hide the pump today. I'm pretty clever at hiding it in my bra strap, but most often settle for the pocket pager look.
7:45am- in the kitchen, pack my lunch,check the BG and bolus for a cereal bar and head out the door.
7:55am- finally eat my Strawberry cereal bar and occasionally hit Dunkin Donuts for a Decaf on my drive downtown (being Monday, this is usually the case).
8:25am- arrive at work.
8:55am- for the last month, I've been checking my BG after an hour...all is good!
Work work work work work
11:30am- start thinking about lunch.
12:00pm- check the BG- 107- bolus for the frozen pizza (lean) I'm about to eat.
12:15pm- eat lunch- so delicious. I also snuck a few mini-snickers as a little treat- sometimes having candy around at work is awful. I'm working on self-control- the baby factor is motivating.
2:45pm- BG is high- I can feel it- test and correct.
5:00pm- out the door and head for home...quick stop at the store (I got a new crock pot!)
5:45pm- finally home- deciding what to have for dinner. Trying to think healthy but the fridge and pantry have slim pickins since we are leaving for vacation on Saturday. The Hubby is working late so I don't have to worry about him for dinner- this usually leaves less healthy option because I go for the easy fix.
6:45pm-finally fix dinner, test BG, bolus and eat.
7:45pm- test again, and sometimes the Hubby gets home by this time!
8:45pm- usually ready for some ice cream (always :) but we don't have any in the house so I'll be good for today.
9:00pm-watching some TV and usually the Hubby and I have a LAN party.
10:30pm- test BG again before bed- watch TV, talk about babies! Hubby falls asleep!
3:00am- alarm goes off (I think it's 6:15am every time) and I test again....if all is well, I go back to sleep.
If it's high...it's a different story....and the cycle continues!
