Corrupt MP3 . . . .

If I use the term "hate to sound like a broken record" would I be dating myself?  After all, in these days of CDs and instant music file downloads, who listens to records?  Surely there is a more current term.  (There is a more current term, and don't call me Shirley.)

Anyway, I hate to sound like a broken record corrupt MP3 file, but I must write another post about exercise.  Or my lack thereof.  Last week I was so gung-ho on getting back into an exercise routine.  Do you know how long it lasted?  That day.  Yup, you got it.  I haven't done a workout since last Tuesday.  Well, we did take that long walk on the beach on Sunday, so I guess I should give myself a little credit for that.  But honestly, this hit and miss exercise stuff just isn't cutting it.  My blood sugars have been a mess over the past week.  Lows that just won't quit.  Highs spiking up out of nowhere.  The past 24 hours have seen the best readings I've had in days - and that's only after running my basal rate at 130%.  This, while avoiding the spikes overnight and upon waking, also resulted in a 53 post-breakfast reading.

Pete and I have both felt like we are fending off some kind of germ this week.  But I know that's only a part of my lack of energy and blood sugar mess.  I know I need to get back to regular exercise.  I know exercise helps my body process my meals better.  It also helps me use my insulin better.  I don't see the big spikes after meals when I'm exercising.  So why can't I get myself to do it?  Am I just lazy?

I need help.  I need your best exercise tips and inspiration.  I don't want to keep writing this post over and over again!


  1. I am in the same boat, I go to the gym one day and feel amazing and can't wait to do it everyday, but then I miss the next week at the gym. I park a little further from the store or wherever I am going so I can get a few more steps, but if you do it everytime, it adds up to a lot of steps. Go to the mall and just walk around the mall.

  2. Can't help you - I'm in need of getting back to it myself!


Thanks for your comment!
