Today I actually took my bike outside and went to a trail near my house. Unfortunately, everyone else in the world had the same idea and the trail was so crowded I couldn’t really get any decent speed since I was dodging people, dogs, and other cyclists the whole time. Even at this easy effort/slow pace, I still got over six miles in less than 30 minutes, giving me confidence that I didn’t unintentionally break my streak before it started the past two days.
After the bike path, we went to a local park that has a pull up bar since the gyms are closed. I couldn’t reach the high bar (I’m only 5’3″) so I ended up using the kids bar. I committed to doing nickles & dimes once per week though, so I wasn’t about to let closed gyms or pull up bars at odd heights stop me.
Earlier today, I had some protein at lunch that I forgot to dose for in the midst of a very busy work day and my BGs spiked to 195 before I caught it and brought it back down. Whoops! By 5:00, it had come back down and I had a little active insulin in my system when I started cycling. After the ride, it began to drop quickly so I had a single gummie but corrected for it when I saw BGs going back up again before the carbs even hit my system. Sometimes one little mistake can throw you off your game for hours and it can be incredibly frustrating. Oh well, there is always tomorrow!
