Now, it’s just a matter of waiting for the results. I’m very hopeful that I’ll hit my A1c target this time around. (And let me tell ya: I’ll be dancing a jig if I do, and crying to fugues if I don’t).
I’ve been working my ass off to get my levels as low as possible, and I really want to see that the effort is worth it. I’ve gone through basal tests, I’ve been eating almost the exact same breakfast and lunch everyday during the week, I test my blood sugar 12-20 times per day (but I’ve been doing that for years, now), I’ve been taking meticulous notes and keeping detailed logs, I've become acquainted
Honesty is the Best PolicyI was tempted to write "reacquainted" there, but to be honest, I have NEVER measured my food or kept track of the quantities of what I was putting in my mouth.
Don’tcha think?Starting a blog should lower one’s A1c, shouldn’t it?
I kind of get this feeling like I want to cut loose on my management for a few days after I have my blood drawn. Leading up to the trip to the phlebotomist I want to have my control as tight as possible (almost like I’m cramming for an exam). And then afterwards, I want to celebrate.
Go ahead, kidHave that ice cream sundae, it’s unlikely to affect your next A1c reading at all.
I know it’s dumb, because I know the A1c isn’t the real test. The real test is everyday.
