A Typical Day?

My friend Karen, over at Bitter Sweet Diabetes Blog, kicked off an idea to post on a certain aspect of diabetes on specific days, posting each day of this week. I love the idea, and so have a lot of other people! Last I heard there were over 90 bloggers participating! That is fantastic!

Karen describes our topic for today:
Day 1 – A day in the life . . . with diabetes. Take us through a quick rundown of an average day and all the ways in which diabetes touches it. Blood tests, site changes, high and low blood sugars, meal planning, anything that comes along. This can be a log of an actual day, or a fictional compilation of pieces from many days.”

Honestly, today I had a very boring diabetes day. That is something I’m simultaneously thrilled about (because that means things were pretty good) and a little disappointed about (because I don’t have some exciting tale to tell).

Last night I had a list of good intentions for my activities today. I’m currently not working (again), so I have a lot of flexibility with my schedule. I was going to wake up at a decent hour, go to the gym for a workout, fertilize the lawn, and do some cleaning.

Instead, I slept until noon and sat in front of the computer for 95% of the day. The weather was cold and rainy here, and I swear that just sapped me of all my motivation. I need to break out of it though, because I don’t think the weather is due to change for a couple more days. Plus I know if I can get to the gym and get a workout in, I’ll feel motivated and energized. It’s often that first step that is the hardest though.

BG’s cooperated for the most part, and I was able to get my Symlin dose in for breakfast and lunch, which helped my BG’s stay pretty steady, and curbed the snacking for most of the day.

I did manage to burn the crap out of a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner though. I do this a lot. It’s not a complicated sandwich to make, I’m just easily distracted.

And yes, I admit, I ate it anyway. Wasn’t THAT bad.
