My glucose is all over the place. It's like nailing Jello to a wall - I can't get a handle on it. I have the same breakfast almost every day. Whole wheat bagel with Amercan cheese. I usually have some cucumbers in vinegar sweet and sour dressing mid morning. Don't judge. Lunch might be a salad or a small salad and something else, a sandwich on whole grain bread, whatever. Dinner, eh! Rarely the same, some days big - some days not. On days I think I've eaten very badly or been a total couch potato (okay, MORE of a couch potato) - frequently my glucose is better than I would expect. On my son's birthday when he wanted pizza and I gladly ate it, followed by cannoli (oh yes I did), my glucose wasn't that bad the next morning.
I can't think of a thing I did differently today from any other day except having a handful of peanuts (if I have nuts, it's usually almonds). Yet today I had the best reading I've had since I started bleeding myself on a daily basis. What gives?
