Great start today

My weight was down 3 lbs from yesterday.

Set a New Basal Rate of .25 units per hour less.

Woke up at 5 AM to a Blood Glucose of 111. Did the bolus to get me from 111 down to 105 (just a few tenths of a unit). Took my number two hours later and it had jumped to 143. Rather than doing a 3 unit bolus I decided to do 2 unit bolus. Will be interesting to see the results I get. Wonder what would have happened if I had not done the few tenths of a unit bolus.

Yesterday’s Meal

I did a (rare for me) calorie count of my dinner last night. At 1661 calories. Did the percent of calories from various sources and got:

Carbs – 16.9%
Protein 11.31%
Fat 36.6%
Alcohol 35.2%

That’s a day of counting calories and taking into account the types of calories.
