All week my blood sugars have been erratic. I check, I bolus, I change my infusion sets, HIGH Blood sugar! What the heck? I am doing all the things I always do. (Ok, maybe I am slipping a bit .)
After all the hard work I have been putting into having such great numbers I should not be having high blood sugar.
It could be because I have been working A LOT and getting less sleep.

I'd developed this bad habit one year ago, during a summer where I was filling all of my free time with mile-long runs to the gym where I'd spend at least an hour weight lifting, taking yoga classes three times a week and jiu-jitsu classes twice a week. That all sounds dandy for a healthy diabetic, but the problem was that I was trying so hard to never go low that I was far too often running a regular 200+ blood sugar. We all know a low blood sugar in the middle of a run or a jiu-jitsu class basically puts a big RED LIGHT on the activity. My other issue was that jiu-jitsu classes were so intense that I was worried I wouldn't be able to feel the low blood sugar symptoms until it was too late, so I compensated in the most unhealthily way: a decent-sized bowl ...
