Excellence All Around! =)

Yesterday we had a softball game (varsity) and it was my chance to shine! This was basically my second start of the season. (Our current record 6-0) The starter is a senior and she was on vacation for spring break and didn't get to practice therefore, our coach started me! I was excited and came ready to play.

I started off in warm ups at 147mg/dl. A perfect start for physical activity. Then I didn't have much time to re check before the game actually started because I was starting, but i did as soon as i had a chance...this was at 4pm, about a half hour into the was 121mg/dl. - not bad, but not as high as i would have liked to continue the I ate a piece of a hard pretzel..which brought me up to 158mg/dl. in 20 minutes. That was the last time i checked in until I came out of the game in the last inning!

This was probably close to one of the best offensive games I have ever had! And I have been playing softball for about 12 years. My first time up to bat, there was a girl on second base...and i got a bunt single! My next time up, there were bases loaded with 2 outs and i got a 3 run Double! yay....THEN my last time up there were girls on 3rd and 2nd...2 outs...pressures on. I cleared my head, looked for a perfect pitch...and BOOM! The ball sailed out in between left and center...almost hitting cars in a parking lot (so i hear)...I GOT A 3 RUN HOME RUN--(stand up)!! haha it was the best feeling in the world!

Although after all this excitement, i think the adrenaline made my sugar go a little too high at 202 mg/dl., when i came out to let some other people play, so i bolused 1/2 of a correction which was 1 unit. That pretty much took care of came down to 164 post game...92 pre dinner...99 at 9:30pm...72 at 10:15...123 post fix...96 pre bedtime...and 122 at 12:40 before actually falling asleep..ALL IN ALL it was an EXCELLENT day for softball and for my sugars (they weren't too bad)!

This was by far the best game ever! and we won 14-1...i was 2-for-2 with a sacrifice bunt single, a 3 run double and a 3 run homer which came out to be 6 RBIs....and...after the game a reporter interviewed me for the first time in my high school career!!! THIS WAS A GREAT DAY!
