Remember how I said on Tuesday that I needed to blow off some steam? Today made Tuesday seem like nothing. Don’t get me wrong: I had a good, productive day. But I had so much to do that I felt like a coiled spring by 5 pm. Finding a whole section of papers that I had forgetten still needed grading didn’t help. Man, I needed that jog. I plugged in my iPod using my new earbuds…
…and headed it out to the tracks, listening to “The Bare Necessities” as I warmed up. As I headed out, I remembered something:
I met my first goal!
Life is good.
Pre-workout blood sugar: 118 mg/dl
The workout: Same as the last two days.
Post-workout blood sugar: 75 mg/dl
I’m thinking that I need to start my temp basals an hour ahead of time so I don’t go down quite so much. Overall, I’m happy with how steady my numbers have been.
The Bare Necessities
Reasons why I love this song:
- It’s a jazzy song that has a banjo in it.
- A song about “bare” necessities sung by a bear? Very punny.
- For such a light-hearted song, it’s got a lot of truth in it. Why worry about something you can’t change? Cool it, little britches.
