Diary Entry for Jan. 24, 2008

Went to bed last night with a BG of 118 at 9:38 p.m. Did some reading of the magazine "Diabetes Management" and lights went out at 10:30 p.m. Slept good until 4:45 this morning. Woke up to skunk aroma. Actually went to bed with skunk aroma in parts of house, but not bedroom. This morning skunk aroma had made it into the bedroom. Took a bathroom break, then went into kitchen. Got me a cup of water, then checked my sugar. It was 112. Now typing Diary. Next up is doing my 30-45 minutes gazelle. May do rower behind it.

Update on exercise: I did 30 minutes of rowing tonight for a total of 14.9 miles. Felt good.

Exercise: 5:15 am to 6:00 am = gazelle for a total of 2.8 miles at a speed of 3.8 mph

Menu =
Breakfast: Same as yesterday morning

Lunch: salad -
2 cups lettuce
1/2 avocado, diced
1 roma tomato, sliced
1/4 cup whole black olives
1/8 cup diced mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup olive oil-vinegar-garlic-herbs vinaigrette
1 oz. walnuts
hot green tea

1 slice leberkaese, steamed
1 cup frozen spinach leaves, steamed


4:45 a.m., 112
6:52 a.m. , 133
7:23 a.m., 123 (pre-bk)
12:07 p.m., 93 (pre-lunch) 
5:39 p.m., 98 (pre-dinner)

Note: The morning readings are puzzling to me. When I got up, I had a good BG of 112, so I was thinking that by doing my 45 minutes of exercise, my BG would be lower 1 hour later. But it wasn't. Instead, it was higher at 133. So I thought, maybe I wait until I get to work and check it again before eating my breakfast and taking my medication. It came in at 123. I wonder how me doing my rowing machine tonight for 30 minutes will do my BG. I'll find out then.
