No, not hog, log! Not a Yule log, or another log on the fire, or a logarithm. You know the kind of log I'm talking about. Yes, I know it's kind of lame to do the new year's resolution thing, but I've got to start somewhere. So start yesterday I did.
Goal is to calmly log my bg, carbs, and insulin without judgement or stress. Just log them and that's it. No good or bad numbers, just numbers. Log now, analyze later. Just do it! And use whatever prayers and motivational slogans I can to get those numbers in that log. It's been a LONG time since I did this. I test regularly and bolus accordingly, but logging has eluded me like a greased pig! OK, so maybe this does have something to do with a hog afterall.
I have been dancing with denial. I have focused on exercise, but ignored the fact that my blood sugar swings have gotten worse, not better. I have focused on training for a half marathon, but gotten really sloppy with carb counts. Treating lows has gone from glucose tabs only to whatever I can chow down on and then some. I can see now that I have been trying to distract myself from focusing on the one thing that is probably most important health wise....proactive diabetes management. So here's to 2008, the year of the log!
