have you ever found that after many trials and errors with food or exercise or anything for that matter, that you have finally found a way to make things work. you know what i mean: you love pizza (or your child loves pizza) and you go to the local pizza place and you try again and again to fine tune how to bolus for this one particular food in this particular pizza joint. you are thrilled. you want to go there more frequently, your child wants to go there more frequently, etc etc etc… then for some reason, you are pre-bolusing for your slice and soda pop; you use your “formula” only to find that it doesn’t work at all.
you are planning on going exercising. you have finally found your preparation work; you know: lower your basal rate for X number of hours, eat this or that, make certain you have no IOB, etc etc. then there is a glitch. your BGs are not in line with what you usually do. for example, typically when you start your prep, your BGs are in target range. but, this one day, not so close. now you must make a quick decision about how to navigate the change in your prep. why now? who knows. YDMV day to day. the nature of this disease.
point being, what are some of the things that you enjoy doing, but have trouble with managing the “formula” for it.
this can mean what it is you do to continue on your mission or how you feel emotionally. what is your frustration level…
