You have been kind to me today, thank you. You have kept my BGL’s steady again and within normal range, which I love to see. I’m enjoying my LCHF lifestyle. I seem to have a renewed passion for this way of eating, after months of not caring about what I eat or my diabetes management. You have given me back control of you, Dia-BULLY. I hope this can be so, and not allow you to beat me up again!?!
Went to bed last night with a BGL of 5.3mmol/L. Did my usual night-time finger prick and calibrated my pump. My blood ketones were 3.7mmol/L, which I am pleased about. A great end to another successful diabetes management day!
My FBGL’s on waking were 5.2mmol/L, so a pretty flat line all night. Did my morning finger prick and calibrated my pump. Then, I bolused for my 3 x morning coffees using dual wave over an hour. Sorted!
I skipped lunch today as I didn’t feel hungry at all. I’m tuning into my body more since being back on my LCHF lifestyle. So, no hunger = no eating!! I spent a couple of hours doing some more de-cluttering. Believe me, I have a LOT to do, as I am downsizing from a 4-bed detached house to a 2-bed bungalow. So, I need to be RUTHLESS!! 3pm arrived and I decided I needed a break from sorting, so went downstairs and made myself my afternoon coffee with cream and I had 2 squares of Lindt 90% dark chocolate with that (breaking fast after 20.5hours). Did a finger prick and calibrated my pump. BGL’s 5.2mmol/L. I’m happy with that. Then, put dinner in oven and went back to sorting! Urgh!
Dinner tonight was roast lamb, which was cooking whilst I was de-cluttering, followed by homemade cheesecake topping!! Yum! Yum! I finished eating at 6.30pm. That’s eating done for another day…none more now until after 1pm tomorrow.
So Dia-BULLY, another good diabetes day for us. We really are getting to be a good team, aren’t we? I like it, a lot! I feel so well when my BGL’s are normal and stable. I feel full of energy when I don’t eat carbs, and when I’m fuelled by fat! What an awesome time we are having together. Anyway, steady BGL’s all day today.
The 9% hypo's happened around midnight, which I was totally unaware of, until I had a look at my graph!
BGL’s currently 6.4mmol/L (8.30pm)
My TDD has been awesome too. I love not having too much insulin on board!
Another day of spot on macronutrients:
Net carbs at 9g today…WOOHOO!
So, tomorrow is CGM sensor change day, which I will do first thing in the morning. That means there will be a couple of hours of no BGL readings, whilst my sensor “warms up”! Then, I can calibrate my pump and we’ll be rocking again. Yay!
I think, Dia-BULLY, that we are working so well together that we both deserve a gold star.⭐ Let’s forget about the points and just concentrate on being kind to one another…we’ll take each day as it comes. Sounds good, huh??
Dia-BULLY, tomorrow is a brand new day…let’s continue to work together, keeping one another happy.
