The east coast was hit with the 15th snowstorm of the season today - A State of Emergency was called and my office was closed.
After it finally stopped snowing this afternoon, I got my #sweatabetes on & went out to dig and de-ice my car with glucose tabs in hand, a blood sugar of 187 & a temporary basal rate dialed back to 60%
Yours truly worked for an hour digging the snow out from around my car and de-icing all my car windows - which was much more difficult than shoveling the almost foot of powered snow because of my bitchy wrists.
And every now and then I'd take a break for a few minutes and go sit in my car as it was defrosting, listen to some tunes and pop some glucose tabs even though I felt OK, I was worried about dropping fast.
I just came back inside and my wrists feel like spaghetti and the muscles in my back, arms and neck are letting me know rather loudly that they are less than thrilled.
Yep, my body hurts all over - but #sweatabetes totally works - And sometimes a little to well~
My #bgnow is 66 - I just downed a juice box and have another on stand by.
Still…. today was a good reminder to get back to the business of #sweatabetes!
