This weekend is our first Jack Russell Terrier trial of the season, Sat and Sun. The last was in October, I didn’t have my pump or dex then and just SWAG’d everything.
I’ll be on my feet walking or running or carrying dogs or… for a good 6 hours or more. Waaaaaaaay more than I’m used to. I plan to eat a large, mostly protein breakfast, and something with some carbs when I arrive (an hour after bfst maybe?). I’ll have my dexcom taped to my nose all day so I can monitor. Plan on bringing peanut butter and honey to treat lows, and my bag of skittles. Mostly protein again for lunch, depending on where I am then. A small snack every hour or so? I’d really like to avert the lows I anticipate, but gotta say I’m somewhat nervous about the whole thing.
Maybe I should lower my basals?
I’ll be doing this many weekends this summer, so really want to get a system in place ASAP. Any input welcomed ;).
