I started the day on the high side. I attribute this to the fact that yesterday was a genuine lazy day with no virtually no exercise (the weather killed the motivation to get outside). Because of this I continued by lazy-day-basal until mid-morning today. By that time my BG seemed stable and in range.
I am still trying to get to the bottom of the work piles I have at work. Today this meant sitting in front of the computer all day, gathering results from one of the projects. I had my usual afternoon snack around , and continued working on these result. At 4:00 PM Jimmi sent me a message, asking when I would be coming home, and I answered him that I would just want to finish those results and then I would be heading home so that we could have dinner together before he would leave for a general assembly in one of the unions he is a member of. Around I finally finished the gathering of results, and mailed the resulting excel-file to the PhD-student in need of them. I was satisfied having finished that off, and started getting ready to go home. This implied a test: 1.8 (32). Damn!
I drained 1/3 of a bottle of OJ (ca. 100 ml), and called Jimmi to let him know that I was getting ready to go home, but that the BG was holding me back. 15 minutes later I retested, hoping to see the BG going up. No such luck, it had dropped even more, now giving me a 1.5 (27). More juice, some chocolate-covered raisins and more waiting and testing. Almost an hour after the first low reading, I had had a whole bottle of OJ (330 ml) and a lot of chocolate-covered raisings, and frankly, my patience was up. I wanted to go home. I would normally not get on my bike with a reading below 4.0 (72), but I made an exception today, as I figured that at least the BG-trend was heading upward and I should have plentiful carbohydrates on board.
When I got home, Jimmi had started eating because he only had 15 more minutes at home before he had to leave for the general assembly. I tested: 3.1 (56) and sat down to eat. I didn’t bolus until after the meal, but still 90 minutes later I was 2.6 (47). The low trend apparently continues, and I am still awaiting the anticipated rebound. Maybe it will come during the night?
I am up for a test before bed time. I am looking forward to see if this damn Monday will continue, or if I have finally managed to get the BG up in safe range.
