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

What a morning !

  • I picked snooze button over run (yeah this trend needs to end)
  • I dug out my iron to put together a professional outfit for an out of office meeting
  • Just as I was headed out the door I learned meeting was moved to tomorrow
  • Jumped right out of that outfit and into jeans so that I could wear it tomorrow (we’re a super casual office)
  • Than as I was headed out for the 2nd time (already missing the bus) my blood sugar crashed
So now picture : me grabbing my gym bag, purse & iced coffee, pouring out glucose tablets & downing them, ripping open a Cliff Z bar , and trying to fix my strappy sandals while I was on the move (ie: each landing point on the stairs).
Pretty sure that’s what you describe as a hot mess. 
This is what I was going for toned down a notch (pinterest)

this is more my everyday style (but not me: pinterest)

Do you get thrown off easily in the morning?

Is your office casual or business?

{weekend recap} : Running Record, Lows & More Ryan Gosling

There was more of this:

It was the final day of Summer Streets and after my PDR last week I decided to give it another go. Only this time my (stranger) friend wasn’t there to motivate me and it started out rough. I felt like there were more runners out there this time, compared to all the bikers last weekend. More shirtless guys too might I add. I’ve given up the whole comparison of people passing me thing for the most part and realized that this run wasn’t going to be about speed. But I kept on telling myself to just keep going and if I needed to stop I would but until then just keep trudging along. And I did. For 8+ miles. That’s the longest I’ve run without any breaks or walking yet. I had one moment fighting my phone of incoming work texts but kept it brief and trekked on.

I definitely didn’t stretch enough and there was no foam rolling. I know better than that. Gotta work on not coming home and going straight for the shower. Stretching in the shower doesn’t count. But that’s what I did on Saturday, and then walked to a new cafe and got a smoothie and enjoyed a lovely pile of September issues.

My new thing when icing (this I am very good about)  is to watch silly sitcoms on Netflix & Hulu. Think ABC family. This week it was Switched at Birth. Silly plot lines aside, I found it pretty interesting in how it taught about the Deaf society; I took American Sign Language senior year of high school.

Swapping smoothie for coffee had me crashing hard Saturday late afternoon. I gave into a nap. And when I woke up my blood sugar was on it’s way down…further draining my energy & killing my plans to head out to Brooklyn for a co-worker’s birthday party. Instead I went over to a friends and watched :

Not at all what I thought it was going to be like but I enjoyed it. And still love Ryan Gosling.

And that was my weekend.
