87 for me. I'm not sure I'll ever see the 70s for any protracted length of time, but I like the 80s just fine.

5.1 this morning, I guess only having steak for dinner & no vegies plus some Lindt choc has made a difference.... Bad bad Catherine

4.9 this morning, and I was sooooo good yesterday. I did have two Optimist crackers for lunch, but with butter and peanut butter on them, and my F:P:C ratio for the day was 77:15:3, so I was hopeful for both a BG close to yesterday's, and a drop in weight. My weight was exactly the same, so I can't complain, I suppose.

Way high this morning. Wound up getting stuck at the muffler shop for 5 hours. This was bad as I missed lunch and couldn't find a private place to inject myself. Result was a 348 before dinner. Hopefully the Novolog will kick in and get me down at least to 200. Really need some better strategies for public shots and emergency food.

Do you use pens or syringes? I've been out plenty of times with my brother-in-law and he just lifts his shirttail beneath the edge of the table; a quick pop with the pen & he's done. I think some people even inject through their clothing.

I never looked for a private place when injecting. Just turned away, lifted my shirt and did it. Even with my students in the room. I have to have insulin to live. If others don't like it-oh well! That's just me!!

I was looking for a specific amount of fat and carbohydrate, hence the butter and peanut butter. It worked, too. Just unusual in my diet. I should have checked my bg afterwards but didn't, so I'll have to just try it again today.

I used to look for bathrooms etc when injecting. Now I take your approach. You don't wanna see me inject? Don't watch. Lol
