My brother was going back to college this week, so we celebrated with him and had lots of big meals the day before he left. Here is my track for that whole time:
Wednesday night we had a big Ethiopian meal where I used the Force. Then Thursday we had to go to Chicago to get visas. We left really early to catch the train. I had to get up around 4:00am so I did not do very well over breakfast (I am insulin resistant when I am tired).
At lunch in Chicago we decided to have Chicago-style deep dish pizza, I had two big slices! That was a challenge. I used 100% pre-bolus, then 45% extended bolus over 2.5 hours. That was not quite enough and I still peaked some but not too much (158).
Then for dinner we had French fondue at home – also a big challenge because it has lots of carbs in the bread and a lot of fat in the cheese. This time I used 100% pre-bolus, then 70% extended bolus over 3 hours. That worked perfectly for me!
What I learned:
when I wake up early I need to pre-bolus more
next time for deep-dish pizza, I’ll do what @Cody does: 100% bolus followed by 75% extended bolus over 4 hours. It looks like it might work for me.
Still, I am happy with the day. It was a very hard day for dosing. I still peaked some but I think I know how I can deal with it better next time.
