wedding day!

My blood sugar #s might have played nice for my friend's bachelorette party, but they were not so nice after the wedding. It was mostly my fault though...I didn't calculate right. And I may have done that thing where I eat without thinking, like when I tossed back several of those mint candies. I used to LOVE those when I was younger, so those combined with a couple bites of cake are what made my numbers spike up to 300 later that night. I'm always amazed that even the smallest indulgence or just a few missed carbs can do that. I try not to worry about what that level does to my body, but I can't help but think about it, even for just a few seconds.

Besides that annoying # later, I had fun at my friend's wedding, which I guess is what matters most. And it was also sunny and beautiful, so that made for a happy weekend. I've noticed once those warm summer nights start, I want frozen yogurt and gelato, which is not the best craving for me to have. I ended up getting frozen yogurt with my roommate and was pleasantly surprised when a couple hours later I was 200...not toooo bad. And after a small correction, I was within a normal range a couple hours later. I know they say you can eat whatever you want when on an insulin pump, but I don't think I should be making a habit out of eating ice cream every week. Sometimes I have to remind myself that it's not necessarily about diabetes, but it is about knowing what is good and healthy for my body so that I feel well overall.

Enjoying a glass of wine before the ceremony.

Before the wedding--on the bridge with the bf.


  1. You look beautiful and happy! What a pretty setting for a wedding, too!

  2. You are gorgeous! I think you are right on the ice cream thing. I used to eat a freakin' pint a night. A PINT! OF BEN AND JERRYS mind you. After I had Joe, I realized I needed to take control of my health and stop the nonsense. Now I just have ice cream once in awhile.

    We don't keep it in the house except for B-day celebrations. Joe loves it. It is a hard one to manage...even with a pump.

  3. Oh, I love, love, love those mints!
    Yeah, diabetes or not, treats should be need to remember that, too! ;)
