Count to 20
Doesn’t it always happen this way: as soon as I mentally give up on something, things take a sudden turn for the better. After my terrible highs’n’lows weekend when ended with me going to bed in the 200s Sunday night, I woke up Monday morning with a normal fasting and have been sailing smoothly in the sweet 80s to 120s ever since. What changed? Counting 20 carbs per ounce of bread instead of 15. This did the trick on both my 1/2 whole wheat hamburger bun at dinner last night and for my 1/2 a bagel this morning. Insulin (and small amounts of whole-grain bread!) and I are friends again. 🙂
Looking forward to my body re-adjusting – right now I feel a bit hypoglycemic in the 80-90 range. It’s amazing and a bit scary how fast your body gets used to higher blood sugars.
