Beach season. Squint brain remember lessons of past D-summers:
-keep the meter/strips in the cooler but not right by an ice pack
-use the placeholder clip when disconnecting to swim
-bring a ton of drinks and snacks, esp. if boogie boarding
-bring a can of compressed air (to blow out a sand-clogged site)
-it is better to get buried with the pump clipped in place than to get buried with the placeholder clip in place or to not get buried at all
-removing the pump for swimming and plugging back in for land sports is a temp basal of its own. Remember that when you try to apply beach-math to your reasoning
Mr. Noodle’s Brother
First time zoodles. Spiralizer = little Gefu. Zucchini = diameter slightly smaller than that of little Gefu (maximum efficiency.)
Recipe went like this: spiralize one 7 – 8″ zucchini per person. Sprinkle with salt, toss around, and allow to drain in a colander (on a towel or in the sink) for however long you have. This is sogginess prevention. Heat up the biggest skillet you have over a medium-high flame. Add olive oil and a minced clove of garlic. After a few seconds, as soon as the garlic starts to smell great, add the zoodles and toss around until everything’s hot and steamy.
The end. Used this carb count: 7g CHO/medium zucchini. Subtract 2 of those g for fiber if belief system allows. So 5g CHO and yum.
Ate first zoodles with this thug salad. (<—good salad.) (Not low carb/paleo but vegan.)
Lunchbox Crap: It’s the Last Week of School
Tiny packet nutella + 15-ish gluten free Snyder’s pretzel sticks = 20g CHO. Bubs comment this pretzel taste like burned marshmallows. True. Better than normal people pretzel.

Didn’t know Spibelt: Dexcom :: pantyhose: old timey bank robber. Thought Bubs fake-look @Dexcom. Just tell me what it says. (I did, I swear, Mom.) Hey, great feature, Spibelt! Now that Bigfoot know about, unzip feels like: takes forever or even as long as starting a car with a key feels after you’ve had a loaner car that starts with a button.
