*falls down* Unf.


1. That big shiny ball appeared in the sky again! \o/ And the foretellers say it will come back tomorrow!

2. Big shiny ball = compulsive time outdoors = no rest days. Even though I've strained my hamstring and my knee hurts...I never feel like not running. Or that I ought to take a rest day - I never think I've worked hard enough, and my new heart rate monitor has crashed me back down to earth (thought I was burning 600 cals/hr in Circle Step? Ha. Or 1000cals on an 8-miler? Nope.). My metabolism seems to be really effed up, or this damn thing is broken.

Or I'm a cyborg.

3. Re: #2, my hamstring is getting better and so is my knee - watch those hamstring exercises, y'all.

4. In other health-related news, I've been reducing my insulin incrementally. Down from 25 to 20 to 18 to 15 to 12, and now I'm ready to take 10 units of Lantus in the morning and see how it goes. My little pen (if I need a "bump" around meals) has dust bunnies.

Seriously, though - how was I even ALIVE taking 25 units a day?!?!? I'm not eating less, or eating fewer sugars/carbs. It's no wonder I quit losing weight - everything that went into my mouth was going into the emergency shelter for immediate use.

Today, 12 units. Post-lunch (complete with a big naan-like piece of bread from Firdous) = 82.

This needs to be researched, but not by me, I freaking hate endocrinology.

5. Weekend = run, run, eat good foods, maybe go to the Spring Game (or just jog by), meet up with my nephew for clothes buying. Then, I will keel over and die. :P

re: #4 isn't that the point of getting healthier overall? to reduce your dependence on artificial insulin?

I am not concerned as I know you keep on top of your sugar level. I think it speaks to your overall fitness level (even if your weight is higher than what you would like).

BTW, I am going to try and use a little more of the Sparkpeople site. I am the same there as I am here in LJ land. *grin*

Of course, the goal is to take as little synthetic insulin as possible. I'm just amazed that my body was able to handle such a large amount of insulin (25 units Lantus = ~1 unit per hour = 15g carbohydrate per hour) without my going into a coma.

Sparkpeople is a great site, I use it every day to stay on top of what I'm doing. :)

Hurrah for downgrading your insulin intake! That's so awesome :D
