It is not always easy coaching with diabetes however. Today I have practice from 6pm until 8, that makes my dinner time an hour earlier. I was just 103 and took 1.5 units to cover a mixture of quinoa and vegetables. Honestly I have no clue how that will workout, will I be so wired at practice that I go up to 200 and take small doses of insulin all practice or will I be running around like crazy and spend all practice sipping juice. When coaching I'm very intense, if my blood sugar is low or high I'm not myself. Tonight is the first night of tryouts and I need to have perfect blood sugars, I will leave shortly with two apple juice boxes, a Nature Valley bar and glucose tablets. I hope that I come home with the same but only time will tell, I'm excited for the year to begin and expect great things as a coach and as a diabetic.
