Another late post I'm afraid, but I am trying to catch-up! I WILL finish this #DBlogWeek!!!

Taking a cue from Adam Brown's recent post, write a post documenting what you eat in a day!  Feel free to add links to recommended recipes/shops/whatever.  Make it an ideal day or a come-as-you-are day – no judgments either way.  (Thank you, Katy of  Bigfoot Child Have Diabetes for this topic.)

Unfortunately I didn't take any photo's of my lunches... So will insert lovely MasterChef looking food instead! :) I chose my food diary from yesterday so here goes:

Stayed over at my Grandma's on Saturday night as she wasn't doing too well (her house seems to exude magical Diabetes BG powers... that keeps me in range!) so I woke a little earlier than normal and my first test of the day is 7.1 (woop). I had a lovely (almost B&B) choice of breakfast and decided to go for 2 Weetabix with warm milk and rather than sugar/sweetener, Grandma suggests a little bit of honey so I had about a tsp. My ratio for breakfast is always more than 1:10 so I injected 5.5 units pre-scoffing.

Next test is at 1pm (not a very active morning) and I'm 8.0. John and I are both exhausted from a shitty week so rustle up a quick dinner consisting of Turkey Dinosaurs (don't judge until you've tried them!), a jacket potato, mixed salad and 1/2 tin of baked beans each. Again I work out carbs pre-scoff and I jab 8.0 units. I knew I was going to have a slightly more active afternoon tidying up the house.

Due to belated birthday get together for a friend we're eating a lot later than planned, so next test is at 7.52pm and I'm up to 10.4 (not enough elbow grease obviously). I braved a Chinese takeaway, but got rid of the super sweet sauces and enjoyed the noodles and hors d'oeuvres :) Once I'd got my plate sorted, I jabbed for 8 grams of carbs with a 2u correction on top.

My next test is at 10.45pm (and I'm feeling very dopey by this point...) and hovering at 4.6 which I think has to be my best post-Chinese BG ever! As happy as I am with this, I don't fancy a 2am sweaty wakeup call from the Diabetes fairy so had a swig of my supermarket Raspberry flavour sports drink and hit the hay. Pleased to report no night-time hypo :D
