5.6.19...DAY FIVE

Published by Geordie lass in the blog Geordie lass's blog. Views: 112

Dear Dia-BULLY,

Why oh why did you let my body hypo overnight??!! :mad: I was so exhausted this morning with not sleeping due to that hypo, then, I slept in and was late getting my DD off to school. Not a great start to the day! :wacky:

Went to bed last night at 10.30pm with a BGL of 5.0mmol/L, blood ketones were sitting at 0.6 too. Not as good as what I would like, given that I’ve been LC for a few days now. Oh well, I will get that fat burning soon.

Hypo’d at midnight, so came downstairs and had some peanut butter. Urgh! That’s all I had as I had ran out of glucotabs…note to self….must get some more glucosetabs?? Felt awful for the rest of the night. Soooooo tired.

Anyway, FBGL was 8.3, probably from the PB I downed at midnight! I always overshoot my hypo’s. So, corrected with my breakfast insulin and calibrated my pump. Had my usual coffee with cream this morning then I took my DD to school as she missed her bus due to sleeping in! Then, got home and made a banana cake for my DD as a treat. I usually lick out the bowl, but as I’m on a health kick with my LCHF, I took a rain check and resisted the temptation. Yay! Had 2 more coffees with cream, and remembered to bolus for the carbs/protein/fat in the cream, as well as 2 squares of Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate.

Dia-bully, you’ve not been too bad with me today. I have been quite active and was heading for another hypo after lunch, but had a couple of spoonfuls of double cream and that seemed to steer it away. Anyway, I had lunch at 2pm (14hr fast), which was 75g of roast beef that I cooked yesterday. Had some left over so just warmed it through and had that with a little mayo! DELISH!

Had an appointment this afternoon which was quite stressful, hence my BGL rising to 9.5mmol/L by dinnertime…6.15pm. Dinner was slow cooked Ox Tail. OMG! First time I’ve tried this and I LOVE IT! Will definitely be buying that again. DELISH! I could only manage to eat 55g. I wasn’t feeling particularly hungry, but I thought I should have my dinner as I am trying not to eat after 7pm and time was cracking on. Note to self…only eat when hungry!!! :rolleyes:

My macronutrients have been good too: Macronutrients...5.6.19.jpg

TDD for today: TDD...5.6.19.jpg

My pump says that I’ve had 8g of carbs today, but I’ve actually had 12g. The 4g difference relates to the double cream I had to treat my lunchtime lowish BGL. So, numbers add up again! Sorry, I’m a bit OCD with numbers. :banghead:

Overall, BGL’s have been ok-ish today. Currently (9pm) sitting with a BGL of 9.7mmol/L:

Anyway Dia-BULLY, I think that’s another point to moi! Or, let’s say 0.5pt each!
