Today I was at work before the sun came up so I decided to workout after work. I kept my carbs low all day* and made sure I was done eating by 12:30 so I would be ready for a 4:30ish workout. Unfortunately, sometimes life will throw you curveballs even when you plan and prepare. Today, out of nowhere, my sensor died (around 1:30p). At first I panicked and texted Marty. I was going to ask him to drive to my work to bring me a new sensor (and he would have) but as soon as I calmed down, I realized I had already brought my “T1 work emergency kit” into my new workplace and had everything I needed for a sensor change hidden in a drawer in my office. I told Marty I was good and proceeded to charge my transmitter and do my sensor change.
Just after I got home from work, my sensor was ready to go. When I checked my BG I was thrilled to see it was at 80 but I also knew it was slowly drifting down and I wasn’t ready for a workout. I decided to have some yogurt with about 6g of carbs and 17g of protein. Definitely a weird pre-workout snack but pretty solid for blood sugar management. I waited for my trend to switch from heading down to going up and Marty, Miles and I left for the track.
When we got there, it was packed with what looked like a high school sports team. So we changed our plans and went to a local football field. Since no one was there, we let Miles off leash and he ran my sprints with me. I’m not going to lie, my mind was getting to me today. I was tired and cranky and the last thing I felt like doing was working out. After about 3 rounds, I relaxed into it and everything improved. By the time I was done I felt like myself again. As much as I sometime dread my workouts or things don’t go my way…
Nothing feels better than a finished workout!
*I had “breakfast” for breakfast AND lunch today. It was amazing! I made these egg cups with turkey sausage in muffin tins and they were bangin’! Maybe I’ll have Marty take pictures and share a recipe soon. I love things that are easy to meal prep and delicious. 🙂
