Round 3 - practice makes perfect
Yes, I can count another 30 min of cardio spent snow shovelling again... they say on tv we have had 158 cm of snow so far this month (or is it this winter) - guess I wasn;t listening that close.
I learned my lesson the other day, I make sure I... Read more

I did 80 min of cardio today in the form of snow shovelling... yes, when you get 60 cm you can count it as your exercise for the day... and the plow has been by several times since, so I know there will be lots more snow out there to shovel in t... Read more

10.5 today and I don't know why
Since I am new to insulin, I feel I need to still be measuring my b.s. at least daily, maybe not the 7 times a day I was doing it at the beginning, though my numbers were a lot better when I was keeping such close track. I still think this has ... Read more

This is getting annoying.... I had salad twice yesterday and stir fry veggies for supper, I did have some dark chocolate, but with all that shovelling yd, it shouldnt' have been anything... this really has to have something to do with holding th... Read more
More snow shovelling... and a big storm coming tomorrow
Well so far this winter, it's been easy, but now this is shovelling 3 times in 3 days and big storm due tm. It took me 45 to shovel out today, and it was freezing drizzle, so after only 10 min, I had to come in and get a dry coat. When I finis... Read more
This really has to be a low grade fever raising my blood sugar, the numbers are just out of whack and despite how hard I am working, nothing positive seems to be happening. But then again, I am expecting perfection. Someone commented that it t... Read more
