Last night I adjusted my basal rate to try to combat the dawn phenomenon. It worked well when I woke up perfectly in range but I wasn’t ready for the low it caused during my workout this morning. Luckily, I had my freeze dried bananas on hand and had about 4 slices. I love bananas and it’s so hard not to over-correct and eat the whole bag but somehow I managed to keep my self control this morning.

Despite being a little low towards the end of the workout, I felt pretty good. I tweaked my knee yesterday (after my workout) playing with the pup so I took it easy with the weight this morning and was prepared to change my workout, if needed. My knee held strong, felt okay and I was able to get through leg day today.

It’s not always pretty or perfect, the important thing is to keep showing up and do whatever you can each day! Happy Monday Everyone!

Pull ups are definitely a work in progress!
