Hi everyone,
Like many of you I'm sure, I am home from school for a few weeks for Christmas break.
Since coming home, I've notices some very high blood sugars at all times of the day. For the first few days I didn't think much of it, but then it sunk in that this increase in BG is probably due to being lazy over the holidays (I don't know about the rest of you, but I've spent a LOT of time lying on the couch). I'm on the pump, so for now I'm tackling this with a temp basal increase of 20%(10%wasn't enough), and trying to get a little bit of exercise in when it doesn't interfere with my one-on-one time with my couch.
I'm wondering if anyone else experiences these changes in BG during school breaks, and how you choose to deal with them.

Matt
