It's been 42 days since I've started the 4 times a week of movement (working out) for no less than 45 minutes a pop, and I've noticed a few things:
1. My daily amount of insulin (for the most part,) has gone down - Except of course for those times when it's gone up.
2. Riding my bike is a hell of a lot of fun!
3. I find myself changing my abdominal infusion sets more often - And I think it's because my workout skort (a workout skirt with built in shorts & so much more flattering then workout shorts,) is causing friction right where my infusion site is. Has anyone else experienced going through infusion sets like crazy when they workout?
4. I feel happier after I work out.
5. I feel more awake after a workout, which has the potential to be a really great thing.
But right now....not so much. I'm working out after work and I have a rough time falling asleep at night to begin with, and working out makes it even more difficult.
6. I don't know if I've lost any weight because quite frankly, I haven't gotten on the scale. Moving four times a week in the cardio sense wasn't just about weight, it was about being healthy and fit. But I did try on last years jeans and they look good!
7. It's a lot easier to workout when you don't think of it as an actual workout.
So has anyone else experienced a new found appreciation for "moving," and if so how did you/ do you keep the momentum going?
For those in the know, how does one winterize their bikes? Does one winterize their bikes?
And finally, how the heck to I force myself to get up before work to "move?"
