Put my basal back to the regular .70, and then decided to eat cereal and make a latte. The meal was around 53 carbs, so I bolused, then waited about 10 min to eat. I think I should have waited longer or maybe I need to change my ratio? Maybe I didn't need to lower my basal like that since I was planning on eating soon after waking up? Either way, I didn't do it right because it's an hour later and my sensor started showing double arrows up. 200 went to mid 200s, then to low 300s, then to mid 300s. As soon as I saw the double arrows, I checked my BG, and my reading was actually 20 pts higher than my sensor. OK, this means I need to take action. Insulin correction on its way! Still seems to be going up so I bolus a little more....sensor now reads 355 but only 1 arrow up. Ugh. I hate hate HATE going from being 80ish in the morning to over 300 in only a couple hours. It always feels like I'm doing so much damage to my body.
Cereal is a hard one for me...I generally eat a cereal with a lower carb amount, but it doesn't seem to matter....my BG spikes every time. I think I need to wait longer...maybe 20 minutes? I used to never wait for the insulin to kick in before a meal, but now I'm finding that waiting 15 minutes really helps even out my level as it rises.
It's funny how a success can turn into a failure real fast. I just have to not let it ruin my mood!
