Pulling the Wild Card!

Welcome to #DBlogWeek Day 4.

Today I'll be doing a running Blog, to cover the Wild Card Topic I've chosen for today:

Some people track every bite they eat, some might not remember at lunch time what they had for breakfast or if they even had breakfast. For one day, document everything you or your loved one with diabetes eats and drinks. The good, the bad, the ugly, the proud, the ashamed, the...whatever. We promise not to judge!!

I'll be keeping track, as the day goes on, as to what I eat, not just for meals, but for lows (and snacks!).

Breakfast today at 6:40am:

Eggo Blueberry Waffles with Butter (because nothing says today is going to be a great day like starting it with Real Butter. Mmmmmm).
Beverage - Mix from work I do - Diet Mountain Dew and a reddish fruit water that I just spent 15 min searching for - but it's yummy!
29 Carbs extended over an hour to cover the butter impact.

Mid morning snack (ok I hit 34 and had to EAT!!!)

Six GlucoLift Cherry Glucose tabs (18 carbs) which probably would have done it but 34 causes a bit of panic...  so followed that up with about 12 Ritz crackers (24 carbs) - followed by a unit of insulin a bit later to cover that spike.

Lunch at noon   ------------------------------>>>
Salad with chopped egg (15ish carbs)
Chocolate chip cookie (26 carbs)
Sobe lean cranberry grapefruit

Snack at 2:30p - remainder of my Ritz as sugars slowly sink to 82. This kept my sugar up around 90 at the 5pm end of day.

About 1c white rice - 45g carbs - treat with 3U Humalog
3 oz seasoned salmon
7 brussel sprouts

AND - dessert - ok not quite but it's yummy!
1oz Grey Goose Vodka with 1oz  Buttershots Dekuypers Schnapps...
OK maybe 1.5 oz of each - hey it's a stressful week - ask me about it!

Hopefully I won't have to add a snack for miscalculation with alcohol later but we'll see, won't we? :-)


  1. Any day that starts with Blueberry waffles is a good day :)

    1. Right? And with real butter Mmmm.
      Makes me regret my energy bar breakfast today... Sigh... :-)
