I cooked a full Thanksgiving meal all by myself. I am very proud!! I wasn’t going to cook at all because a Turkey is way to big for 3 people. I can only eat Turkey so much…lol turkey sandwich, turkey hash, turkey tacos…lol You get my drift? I cooked dressing, mashed potatoes, greens, green beans, yams, rolls and a chicken. The meal I cooked tasted GREAT!
This year I decided to enjoy my Thanksgiving meal, after all Thanksgiving w/o carbs is not Thanksgiving. I bolused for 80 grams of carbs which gave me about 7.50 units of insulin and I extended half of it for about 3 hours. I was anxious to see what my bg reading would be and 3 hours after I ate all of the things listed above my bg was 141!!! OMG! I couldn’t believe it. I screamed and my Husband couldn’t believe it either. I was happy and from that point on I realized I can let go and enjoy Thanksgiving…lol if I bolus correctly.
I hope you all had a great Turkey Day, I know I did!
