behaving this far

Woke up with bl sugar at 4.7mmol/L at 6:00AM
didn't eat anything
went back to bed when baby went to nap at 8:00AM (must take advantage of mat leave which ends next week)

At 9:30AM, woke up at low at 3.1mmol/L ate an astro cherry yogurt to fix (6g of carbs) then ate 2 slices of buttered toast for breakfast
Bread 27g carb
2 tsp Light butter 6g of fat
Forgot protein!  Meant to eat a light baby bell but got distracted

then played with baby and went for a walk
could have snacked but didn't...should have.  Went low again upon return
Hard to set pump these days with such an unpredictable schedule

Nighttime lows: always Dex4 glucose tablets to fix
Daytime lows tend to be at about meal times, so like to add a portion of milk or fruit

salad 10g carb
with 1/2cup cottage cheese 8g carb
and lemon black pepper FREE

Also, just put a cake in the oven (for breakfast)  My pears were overripe, so it was time for them to be reincarnated.  Love making up new recipes to use up fruit.  Hope this one doesn't fall!  Always a risk with low carb baking, though truthfully, I eat them no matter what! 
Vanilla Pear Loaf cake
1/2cup Robin Hood NutriFlour 44g carbs
1/2cup soy flour 22g carbs
1/2cup old fashion rolled oats 27g carb
1 cup Splenda 24g carb
2tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
All sifted together

Peeled and mashed my 2 overripe pears 31g carb  (weighed them on my salter scale to be sure)
and added to them
1 cup Almond Milk 2g carb
1/2cup canola oil (8 portions of fat)
1 egg
2tsp vanilla
beat all this with a fork

Poured the wet stuff into dry stuff and stirred to combine
poured it all into a sprayed loaf pan and put to bake at 325F for 40min
Total carb add up is 150g carbs for the entire cake
I will cut it into 8 slices.  Each slice will be worth 18g carb and 1 portion of fat

I licked the bowl and wooden spoon but that's free, right?
