Why I Love Snow Days

So, if you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen this picture I shared yesterday:

I was so excited, I was, quite literally, jumping up and down.  It's hard to tell, since Medtronic CGM doesn't have numbers on their display, but that was my 24 hour graph yesterday afternoon. 

Why, yes, yes, it does show that the highest I had been was in the 150s, and the lowest 68.  Holy amazing blood sugars, Batman! I couln't believe it!

Unfortunately, my bliss was shortlived.  Here's my 24 hour graph this afternoon.

And yes, that one does show that I spent AN HOUR in the 50s last night, and consumed way too many Lemon Heads trying to get back up.  Yes, my pump woke me up at 5am with a high alarm.  Stick confirms bg 339.  Sigh.  Oh, and look, before lunch, I was 68.  Awesome!  And after treating that (low bg + chasing around small children at work = trouble), I now have double up arrows. REALLY!!?!?!?!

So what does this all mean?  Well, I had 2 snow days this week.  Stayed home Monday and Tuesday and my bgs were amazing!  Go back to work, and it all goes to crap.

So, apparently, I should just quit my job and stay home all the time, no? ;)


  1. Gotta love having those perfect days followed by days from, well, you know. But, that's diabetes for ya, right?

  2. Ha! No worries, I love the little graph on my MM as well. Sometimes it looks like perfection others it looks like a 3 year old drew the graph line!

  3. Is it weird that these pictures make me miss my blue pump? The perfect numbers look so much prettier when they're colorful!
