Blood Sugar Question

I have Type 2 Diabetes. This week I've been trying to watch my diet and started walking for about 15-20 each morning. My blood sugar has been lower than usual, around 118 - 140; assuming it was down because of the walking? However, yesterday it was 118 and this morning reading before eating or drinking anything and before my walk, it was 173!!! When I returned from walk, took it again and it had shot up again to 186!!! I did eat breakfast n coffee after the walk.

What made my blood sugar shoot up so much higher than first part of the week? Nothing really changed in my diet since Sunday?
