exploring the mix of fun, fitness & health…as a diabetic

A 6:30 min mile {lies}

Today was the return of morning runs outside.
After last weeks rough treadmill session plus the fall like weather it seemed like a must.
After a few snooze button attacks I woke up 90 which is perfect but my body felt low.
Mind over matter. 
The perfect am pre-run blood sugar, I just had to trust myself…and fight every urge to go for some gummies or glucose tablets.
I loaded up on some layers – probably too many but I get super cranky in the cold & mixed with pre-coffee crankiness that just didn’t seem smart.
Right from the start the run felt good, light and strong – a reminder of what it’s all about. At first runkeeper told me I was running an 8+ minute mile and I thought no way! but I was on a runners high so I just went with it.
And than it told me I was busting out 5 minute miles and covering 4 miles.
Lies. All lies. 

But I just kept the momentum figuring I was either breaking records or giving it my all.

It ended up only be 2.5 miles (I was aiming for 3 but it’s been so long that I forgot how far I needed to go to reach it). I could have kept on going but had to get back to shower & get ready for work. I didn’t want to let it ruin the endorphins but it kind of sucked that I came up short from my goal and totally could have killed that last 1/2.

Blood-sugars after: 124. {perfection}

Also – this whole trying to figure out strength training thing – I’m feeling it….I still get amazed how sometimes the littlest moves have the biggest impact. Now time to set up something similar for arms.

Time for some quick foam rolling and then must.go.to.bed.

On another note: another lunch out today! This time with the office bestie. We felt like real midtown-ers. I however didn’t feel so hot after my lunch choices.

Your turn:

Do you eat at the office?
Do you pack your lunch?
Suggestions for non-refrigerate-able ideas??

  1. yes, i eat at the office, too expensive to buy food every day/… Pack…

    • We always said we save a lot buy being provided lunch – I’ve realize just how true that is this week, especially since bringing something from home isn’t really an option.
