The fun started as I began work just after 7am. With the hot weather it was important to get all of the grass cut early before the real heat kicked in. I figured I would be mowing greens which we do by hand, when I mow greens I walk about five miles and my blood sugar is always around 90 when I finish. When I was told that I would be mowing fairways I knew that my blood sugar would sky rocket. When mowing fairways I'm sitting down, I can't complain I very much so enjoyed sitting all morning. I had only taken one unit of insulin to cover the bagel thin and peanut butter I ate after my ride. I quickly put in six units when I found out that I was sitting all morning.
My blood sugar would quickly raise to 240 by 8am. I knew this would happen but I was still angry. By 10 I was down to 130 and all was back to normal. It just goes to show you how one little change can make things crazy for a good three to four hours.
