This morning, Marty and I had big plans! A local theater announced they were going to share some really old cartoons on YouTube. We couldn’t pass that up so we planned on getting up, having some coffee and watching cartoons that are older than we are. When I got up though, my blood sugar had other plans. My CGM was reading 166 and normally, I would workout to bring it down but I didn’t want to spoil our plans. I also didn’t want to correct with insulin because that would have been peaking during the time I actually wanted to workout. So Marty and I took Miles for a sunrise walk and played in the park while the coffee brewed. It was great!

After our morning cartoons, we got down to business. We did different workouts but in the same space which was fun. He would be running out the door as I was running back in or vice versa. Today I decided to take the combination strength workout that Keith* made for me and I added in some running in between the sets as opposed to getting my cardio in before or after the strength.

My BG management was obviously a bit wonky because of the dawn phenomenon this morning. Since I started out high and was planning a HIIT workout, I didn’t eat or reduce basal. I knew that it would take me a while to get through the workout so I figured it would probably lower my blood sugar, rather than spike it. I also took a few of the runs at an easier pace to help nudge my numbers down. When I was getting close to the end and still pretty high, I did a half unit correction for an extra push towards my personal target range. Normally, I would have made a smaller adjustment but since I did my site change right before my workout, I did a little bit extra**. Then a few minutes later, I started to drop rapidly so I had a sip of tailwind that I would guess was about 3g of carbs. It was just enough to even me out! You can see that my BGs dropped a little, then rose a little and then dropped back down into a great place. Happy Sunday! I hope your weather is as nice as ours is today!

*Keith crushed me, again! Feel free to hit him up on facebook if you’re looking for customized workouts to help you reach your goals.

**I don’t always trust a new site and sometimes I find I need just a bit more insulin than normal right after I change it.
