For me, the grind is about dealing with the dips and spikes rationally. In our first example, the high plateaued and eventually returned to normal. In our second example, I didn’t bolus appropriately for my meal. The results speak for themselves.
The grind is about accepting the moments that get a little out of control and finding the balance as quickly and as safely as possible. The grind is about self control. The grind is about having a short memory for the times diabetes doesn’t play by the rules, but the memory of an elephant (because they don’t forget, right?) for the trends that you can rely on.
This stuff really isn’t fair. But that’s the grind.
