Weird Delete and a Medical ID

A couple quick things to talk about, I will definitely update later today or tomorrow on my new workout routine, but here is the deal. Something happened from my Sunday post and it left! It just flitted away and it makes me sad. That is okay though, I will just say that this past weekend included a run and chores, and the move Now You See Me (which I quite enjoyed!). 

As for the past two days, I haven't been up to much. I was dumb Monday night and worried about my sugars going low (I was at around 5.5 (99) with 4 units of active insulin on board), so I took some measures. I am really trying to be on top of my sugars since being on the pump, and sometimes I over compensate to correct. Ya, that did not turn out well. I reduced my basal and had about 6 grams of carbs. I woke up at 3 in the morning to a whopping 18.4 (331)! It felt awful and I quickly bolused and went back to sleep. I woke up  at 10.2 (184), which is better, but still not ideal. Tuesday I felt tired and terrible all day, accompanied by sugar issues (likely caused by the bad night), so it was a lazy day. 

Today, I get back to everything. I have a run today, then the man and I will be heading to the gym to get summer passes! And then we plan to start doing classes at the gym two or three days a week (on top of the running) and some weights! I am excited, though apprehensive about weights. I have NEVER been into weight lifting. This is not to say I have anything against it, actually I think it is important, I just enjoy the high of cardio over the burn of lifting. My man, on the other hand, loves it! So for him, I am trying again, but I have assigned him the duty of being my coach and finding weight routines that are ideal for running and the like, not for bulk (I am his coach for running :)!). We will see how this week goes and I will definitely update on that.

Other than that I don't have much to say today, other than a delay in shipping allowed me to finally get my birthday present from my man! A beautiful sterling silver medical ID bracelet with a gold plated emblem! It was so thoughtful as my last one was falling apart and scratching me when I wore it. I am very happy and it means a the world to me. I always like to have medical ID, and I advocate for people to wear it (I am sure I will post about it at some point).

The beautiful ID
I hope you have a good day and I will definitely update coming up. Though I have a question to present to you before I go: when do you decide you need to take preventative measures for your sugars? Or do you just wait till you are at the bad point and then correct? 


  1. I love the medical id! Very nice!

    I think I'm a lot like you with the preventative measures. I freak out when I should just wait and let things work themselves out. It's so hard to know when to take action, or when to be patient.

    1. Haha, I am glad I am not the only one who jumps the gun! And thanks about the medical ID, I am glad I have a new one!
