The other evening, I talked Pete into stopping by Crumbs on the way home from our ballroom lesson. I managed the tough task of picking out my cupcake (so many great choices). As it turned out, I was high before dinner (a little over 200), but I bolused a correction along with my dinner dose and ate anyway. And I came right back down into range! Was I going to ruin it all by indulging in half of a cupcake for dessert?
You bet I was!!! I swagged a bolus and ate my cupcake half. (If you haven't had a Crumbs cupcake before, I need to mention that they are HUGE. So eating half is really more like eating a whole regular sized cupcake.) I watched my CGM graph slowly start climbing again . . . but it topped out around 150! Then it headed gently back down! It stayed flat all night long and my fasting was 93 the next morning!
And that, my friends, was my perfect cupcake night. And yes, I blogged about it. And yes, now when I eat the other half, I'll shoot way the heck up out of range. Fine, Diabetes Bog Curse, it was worth it!!
