I'm trying to get back into shape after being sick for 2months..so I've been hitting the gym as much as possible and trying to get out for walks as much as possible. Just generally..getting more excerise than I was getting while sick because I had no energy too.
This morning I got up at 7:30am to go for a walk/run around a lake off the highway. It's about 3-4k around. I tested, I was 5.6. I didn't do any Novorapid for the toast and juice box I had..because I haven't actually RAN around the lake before, and didn't want to suddenly go low. I did my Lantus as usual (in the arm). I got to the lake and started my walk/run around just after 8. I did that once, and then walked around a second time to cool down. After, I tested my level and I was 13.5. Fair enough, I hadn't taken any insulin for the food I ate, so I did a correction dose of 3units(1unit for every 2points over 5 I am). I should've done 3.5units, but I can't do half units with my syringes. I took it in my other arm (have stopped using my stomach and switched to my thighs/arms)
When I was driving, I popped some Extra sugar-free gum into my mouth cuz I wasn't hungry, but I knew I needed to chew on something.
Instead of going home, I drove to the gym and did 120 ab excerise reps. I figured since I really want to tone my stomach, why not before I go home and get ready for brunch with the gang.
I just went downstairs to have some yogurt and find something with protein to munch on, since I have two hours til brunch. I tested. I was 20.4! I couldn't believe it, so I tested again and my meter read 21.4! I just did a correction dose of 7units in my thigh.
I know that excerise can make your liver kick in and produce glocuse...but I ate before I excerised, and I took a correction dose..and I only worked out for a total of like an hour and a half!
The whole point of excerising, besides getting into shape is to help keep my bloodsugars in normal range and drop how much insulin I have to take.
