After having my Bad Diabetes Day it would be easy to get frustrated and put in a little less effort. I’ve been feeling pretty depressed lately too, so that makes it even easier to just throw in the towel. But instead I’m trying to fight through. And for some reason, I decided my mission of choice would be to conquer cereal.
A bowl of cold cereal is near the top of my list of foods I can’t seem to work out a bolus for. I have such a difficult time eating it without a huge post-meal spike. I’m not a huge fan of cereal, so usually I’m happy to just choose something else for breakfast. But for the past few days, I’ve really wanted some cereal for breakfast. So I set about to finally work out a bolus for it once and for all.
I don’t quite have it down yet, but I’m definitely making progress. For the past two days I actually ended up too low during my post-breakfast blood sugar check. So I’ll keep dialing down my aggressive bolusing bit by bit until I get the formula worked out.
Eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast is such a minor thing that most people wouldn’t think twice about it. But when diabetes is in play, the smallest things can become a challenge. I’m on a mission to make cereal work for me, and I think I’m almost there.
What diabetes missions are you taking on these days?
