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).
