Happy New Year – blah blah blah

Scary night. I was up late watching re-runs of RoboCob 2 and 3 and ate a whole bag of popcorn. It was salty and greasy and delicious. I checked my BG at 9 PM and it was over 150. Hm… damn those carbs. So I took 2 units of Novolog and finished watching Robo fight off the Nazi-ish Rehab troops. Then I crawled my ass off to bed. Woke up around 3 with stiff muscles and feeling very odd. I think I may have had a late night low. Woke up this morning stiff as a board and my morning BG, which is normally in the low 100s was in the high 80s. Hm….. no more insulin before bed.
