You will probably get a ton of answers to this, but...

If you know your insulin/bg ratio, just bolus down. You get half way in 
an hour.  If you are going to eat, bolus 1/3 of your meal (guess) bolus 
and eat when you hit 150.

Don't forget to spread normal meal boluses over the digestion time. 
Usually 4-5 hours. Otherwise, you will get real low and then real high.

I am assuming you are using humalog.

Constantly, every check (3 - 6 hrs).
