Default 18 Hours of Blood Sugar Levels

I was busy with work so I have not been on here much. But I just wanted to say that this forum has helped me learn so much about diabetes. Thank you everyone!

I thought it would be interesting to log my blood sugar for an entire day. I took my blood sugar each hour for 18 hours. Just as some background info, I had an A1c of 6.5 a few weeks back and an OGTT confirmed that I am pre-diabetic.

I am on zero medications.

Some may find this information interesting:

8 AM - 84
9 AM - 91 (Breakfast - left over chicken soup, toast, and an egg)
10 AM - 107
11 AM - 104
12 PM - 84
1 PM - 91
2 PM - 93 (Lunch - chicken salad, ranch dressing, almond flour muffin)
3 PM - 106
4 PM - 109
5 PM - 93
6 PM - 89 (45 mins of cardio at the gym, 15 mins of weights)
7 PM - 72 (Huge drop after working out! This happens everyday.)
8 PM - 88 (Dinner - Broccoli cheese soup, crackers, steak, sour cream)
9 PM - 110
10 PM - 112
11 PM - 98 (Late night snack - almond flour muffin)
12 AM - 105
1 AM - 105

On Saturday, I was at my girlfriend's work promotion party and had four fried eggrolls, a baked potato with cheese, fried rich with sweet and sour chicken, red velvet cake, and icecream. Saturdays are my cheat days but I definitely went over-board last weekend. My blood sugar was at 194 after an hour of eating. It then fell to 105 after two hours. That was the highest reading I have ever logged. So no more cheat Saturdays for me.

i would say keep the cheat day as i know they help, but just be mindful of what cheat your having. For example, maybe try pork rinds or something instead. Cheats keep you sane if your strict on diets, so by all means keep it, just choose 'better cheat foods'
