I was pretty annoyed with myself as I changed out of my pajamas and hopped into the shower while realizing it was almost time for dinner and I hadn’t gotten to the store to pick up something to cook. And I was starving, considering I hadn’t eaten all day. A whisper of a thought drifted through my mind…….”hadn’t eaten all day, great time to do a finger-stick and calibrate”. My finger-stick came back one point off from my CGM. And according to my graph, I had stayed between about 80 and 120 all day.
To which another whisper of a thought replied…..”well, look, a basal test got done today, and those daytime basals are spot on”.
Now I don’t recommend getting distracted and skipping breakfast, lunch, snacks and water all day. And I did make sure I had a (fairly) balanced and (somewhat) healthy dinner. But instead of beating myself up for failing yesterday, I’m going to cut myself a break this one time. After all, I did manage a very successful test of my basal rates.
