For Part One, click here.

So far I’ve covered all the events that happened up to Friday night. I did this on purpose because Saturday was it’s own adventure.

Vacation Prep & a Little Frustration

I’ve been slacking in the blogging department! I have a couple unfinished posts hanging out in the wings, but we’ve been busy packing and preparing for vacation next week. I’ve had several photo sessions to wrap up on top of work, church, and plenty of other activities. I’m not complaining – it’s been exhausting but I wouldn’t have my life any other way!

Accountability 8/15/14

Last week was great.

0801-0807This week was terrible.

0808-0814Partially due to completely incorrect sensor readings (showing 300 when I’m 190, or 50 when I’m 80). And partially other factors. Bad weeks happen, but I’m still pretty proud of myself. My average BG is right around 140, which is awesome!

I need to get in and actually get my A1C officially checked, but I just don’t want to. I haaaaaaaate getting my blood drawn… But if my average is really between 140-160 then that would mean my A1C is somewhere between 6.5 and 7.2. When I was on injections (and actually DOING the injections like I was supposed to, which is a story for another post) I pulled a 7.5 A1C, so anything better than a 7.5 is success in my book.

Capture

I am SO EXCITED. My sensor average was 131 for the week. Amazing! That’s the best average I’ve had since being diagnosed. Of course, today I’m riding hard on the diabetes roller-coaster with a few rage boluses, but I am so happy with the past week that it makes everything better. Plus I set a new record on my sensor… 12.5 days! Woohoo! Continue reading

The things we do to stay alive.

The past few days have been intensely frustrating. The minute you start to think you have this under control, diabetes throws a giant curve ball and you’re scrambling to keep up, to make sense of it all again.
