Insulin still decreasing

I'm still frustrated. I'm doing 45 min cardio or 30 min cardio + personal trainer 6 days a week and still losing the same 5 pounds over and over.

HOWEVER, some good news, and hopefully some light at the tunnel. Yesterday I was at 62 units of insulin and blood sugar levels stayed at good levels all day.

I'm going down to 60 today. That's from a high of 72 units!

One of the reason I'm decreasing insulin levels, is that I am very close to hitting some lows throughout the day (and did hit one on Sunday).

It's a fine balancing act, but I'm learning it.

I got to swim in the pool!

We have a pool. I'm STILL not sure it's a good idea. We've had it since we've had this house, about 2 years.

Anyway, I was able to get in the pool. It was cold. 78 degrees, but it was fairly warm outside and I was still hot from the gym.

I managed to get across the pool 3 times, so add that with 30 minutes of cardio, 30 minutes of resistance training. Not bad.

Hitting Low

I hit low this morning -- 40 to be exact.

I'm not sure what happened. My blood sugar was 136 before I ate breakfast. I ate a very low carb breakfast, but then I usually do. Started laundry, came upstairs to do a low, felt really dizzy, sat down at my desk and took my blood sugar and it was 68 using my arm. Took it again with my finger and it was 40.

Freestyle by Therasense

I'm linking to myself, hope that doesn't break anything, but I wanted to make sure people who use alternative site testing saw the post on my low this morning.

I first tested on my arm and got a 68. That's alarming in itself, but within seconds later I tested my figure and got a 40. Make sure when you are testing lows, you are finger testing.

Yeah, it's a real pain, and my fingers hurt all day afterwards, but this is needed information.

And it's days like today having a data port would be nice...
