When my blood sugars started to be higher than average I got a little worried. My diet is very simple and consists of the same foods day in and day out. I'm so scheduled that my blood sugars rarely change unless I "cheat" and eat something out of the ordinary. For the past week I would wake up with a great blood sugar, take my usual insulin and eat my normal meal. Less than an hour after eating my blood sugar I would be around 300!! I would take insulin to correct the high blood sugar but would never get lower than 200. I should've known I was sick when the guys at work and Leanne started to ask if I was ok. The guys at work noticed I wasn't myself, very quiet and short tempered. Leanne became worried when I would be in bed before nine and noticed that I wasn't writing my blog every night. I said it was a stressful week and that I'd be ok in a couple days.
After the half marathon I was coughing like crazy and felt horrible. I was very sore after the half marathon which is very rare. Not to sound cocky but I usually feel fine after any run or cycling race, no soreness just dehydrated. The day after the half marathon I couldn't walk, my legs were killing me and I felt like I had run for days on end with no rest.
Luckily this morning I woke up and felt like my old self. My energy was back and the guys were happy to see that I was my crazy energetic self bouncing all over the place. I woke up at 5 and was happy to see my blood sugar at 123 but expected to be up to 250 again, I took a little more insulin and was down to 70 at 7am. Blood sugar wise I was back to normal, all day my blood sugars have been around 130 which let me know I'm back. It sounds crazy but I'm ready to wake up at 4:30 tomorrow morning and head to the gym. I think next time I don't feel well I will bite the bullet and head to the doctor. A week of bad blood sugars and not being myself is not worth it.
