I take a blood sugar reading first thing after getting up, and ideally it should be under 110. I've been flirting with higher readings in the 11x range, but my doctor isn't worried about that, as morning highs are not unusual, he says. But this morning I had a 131, which really worried me. I'm working from home this morning before flying to Portland this afternoon, and things are lightly loaded, so after breakfast, Cheryl and I went for a walk down to the train station (incidentally confirming at which platform my train is scheduled to call) and back. I was rewarded with a nice, normal, reading of 101 an hour after breakfast.
