rather than running up hill! (This is going to be quick, I have exactly 6 minutes left on my lunch break!)
I’ve walked the route I ran today before, but I guess I never noticed how hilly it was before! I ran 26 MINUTES WITHOUT STOPPING! 😀 Not sure how far I went, I am going to map it in my car after work.
I checked my blood sugar before I left and it was 133. That’s okay if I am not about to go running – what to do?
Okay, not the healthiest choice, but at 63 calories and 11 carbs it was perfect. And it worked. I walked 5 minutes to my “start” ran 26 minutes, and walked 5 minutes for cool down. My blood sugar was a wonderful 125!
The only problem with running outside, is that I wasn’t able to carry my “diabetes bag.” I carried glucose tabs in case I needed them, but it would have been hard to carry this – my daughter made it for me so everything is in one spot (my blood sugar testing supplies, disposable needles, etc.):
I have a fanny pack at home, but that is so 1980s! Does anyone have any suggestions on what they use?
- red lentil soup
- salad with 1 ounce salami, carrots and light balsamic dressing
- 6 tortilla chips
- lots of Tabasco!
Lunch break is over, see you after dinner!
