Welcome to the Daily Drudge Report. This is where I’ll be recording how diabetes affects my day. Why? Because unfortunately, diabetes affects everything from when and what I eat to how I feel on an hourly basis.
This week has been pretty tiring since I worked around 35 hours for one client in just 3 days. We’re working to relaunch an entire overhaul of their website and it’s a monster of a job. The launch date will be in August so there’s a lot to prepare and manage. On top of that I do their book keeping, marketing management and lots of other tasks. It’s my biggest and most demanding client.
Needless to say, it’s taken quite a bit out of me.
I’m happy to report, however, my blood glucose has been in range for most of the day. Dinner is the only time I’ve hit 8 mmol/L (145 mg/dL) and even then it stayed under 9! (162)
Today’s food was a bit over my daily allotment (it’s not as bad as it looks, I didn’t actually eat all of dinner so maybe 400 calories surplus) but at least I bolused correctly!
I was planning on going to the gym, but honestly, I’m just too exhausted so I’ll go in the morning and hope I’m not fighting hypos the entire workout!
