For my sister's birthday bash they have reserved a box at the Rockies game this evening. Included in the plans are special baseball fan favorites. YIKES!!! I hope i survive without a bad BG spike. My sister only said she knew for sure there would be famous Rockie Dogs on the menu with other items.
I am planning on eating a high protein mini meal before going. Then hope for the best while at the party/game. Any short notice advice for what to avoid at the game?
This is big family event #2 out of three in 6 days.
Event 1 was a niece's wedding, with cake from The Cake Lady (AKA Mom). Event three is a nephew's wedding with Mom's cake.

I know I'm late in my reply but the best thing to avoid is "eye contact." :)

Sure now you tell me. Eye saw the brownie, I almost resisted. I only ate about a 1" piece. Thank goodness there was salad, celery, and chicken wings.

Thanks. My dog will be bunless. I broke down at the wedding and was going to eat just a bite of Mom's chocolate cake, ate almost half a piece. But it was the only bad carb I ate with the dinner. I haven't heard if she has found a way to get cake into the balllgame.

Take lots of water with you. An easy out is "no thank you, my tummy is a bit upset today. I am sure it is nothing serious." There is always this one "That looks very good but it would make my blood sugars soar." If your blood sugars are under control a small spike though not good may not be too harmful. Remember small portions of sinful items.

I'm just hoping there are not too many sinful items. I will need to grab som bottled water on the way, thanks for reminding me.

Most of all Gaylin have a fantastic time. Don't forget your camera. If you are snapping memories you cant be munching too. :)

Get a bag of peanuts. They are in the shell and last a long time. Enjoy the game and company, it's not all about the food.

Thanks for the reminder. I normally have some almonds with me at all times. Forgot them at my niece's wedding and discovered my mistake just minutes before the bride came down the aisle aand felt a bit like a low was starting. Luckily I did have a fruit leather that held me until after the long ceremony.
I will make sure I have some nuts (besides the family) with me for the game.
