i love the 90’s!

Posted Sep 22 2008 10:59am

Yesterday, Jackie and I went to the UNLV Orientation and helped sing the UNLV FIght Song to 3,000 Freshmen! It was so much fun and we met some really cool people!   We got up pretty early to get ready and have breakfast and be there in time. However, it was pretty interesting when I tested my blood sugar after breakfast…

You see, I almost never eat Wheat Chex! [This is a rare occurrence.] It’s always been a cereal that I have trouble bolusing for. I know there are 38 carbs in 3/4 of a cup, I can bolus for that. I even had 1/2 cup of blueberries and milk in my cereal. Milk in cereal is a given, but the blueberries were so good! Any way, other than my love for fruit, I carb-counted my breakfast and added an extra 2 units.

Every time I eat Wheat Chex, I don’t know why, but my blood sugars are higher. At least almost every time…because when I tested my blood sugar 2 hours and 10 minutes later, I was 91!! There was a smile on my face but I was so surprised; I actually bolused correctly for this amazingly good breakfast!! :] Since we were no where near singing the UNLV fight song with everyone yet, I turned my basal down in my pump, and drank a couple ounces of juice because I didn’t want my blood sugar to be low while we were showing the freshmen our school spirit!  But, my number was 169 afterward and then 94 before lunch! :-)
