We are kicking off the New Year with a reminder that routine is your friend! Consistency in the times you eat, the types of food you eat, and physical activity will help you manage your blood sugar and avoid highs and lows. Keep a health journal for a week or so-- tracking your blood sugars before and after meals, snacks, and exercise. You will learn how your body responds to certain activity or food at a certain time of day, and then you can work with your doctor to adjust your medication, insulin, or carb-intake to keep your blood sugar in your ideal range. Once you have a solid routine and meal plan that works for your body, stick to it! Rhodes eats roughly the same lunch, at the same time of day, almost every day. And, he's rarely high and groggy in the afternoons. It's not boring, it's smart management!
