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

Gym: 6/22

After my usual yoga class I had planned to knock out some cross-training. 

Blood-sugars decided to kill that plan just as it had the night before. 

I had only grabbed my keys, mat & iphone … leaving my meter behind (such a liberating feeling!)…. but atlas a stupid move. 

I  still knocked out 20ish minutes on the elliptical at a low intensity (apparently I didn’t record it). 

My blood sugars ended up being 141 – which means I could have put in a real cardio session.  

Lesson learned (two days in a row): if I’m going to do cardio must have meter and tablets/gus/$$ with me.  Sigh, I was just getting used to grabbing my keys and going.
