Today I have an evening webinar scheduled so I had to get my entire workout in before work. When I woke up, I decided to start with my strength session since BGs were in a good place and do my bike ride once the dawn phenomenon hit. Amazingly, the timing worked out perfectly and I had super steady BGs with minimal manipulation. I did have one gummie towards the end of my ride when I saw my BGs starting to trend down quickly. Hindsight, I probably didn’t need it but that small adjustment kept me hanging nicely in the 110-120 range until breakfast so no complaints!

Today’s workout was courtesy of Keith*, one of my OTF coaches. He is an amazing trainer so of course the workout was a killer! I counted up all of my push ups after the workout and realized I did 105 of them today. That might be a record for me but I’ve never actually counted before so I’m not 100% sure. Either way, I’m sure I’ll be feeling it tomorrow! I took the bike as an active recovery for my legs since they were pretty sore again today. I’m really looking forward to Miles’s birthday next Thursday when the streak ends and I can finally take a true rest day. I’ve come this far though so I can’t quit yet!
