Yesterday I was on my tour of the golf course. This tour is a six hour walk that is over five miles. The tour has a ton of hills and does a number on my blood sugar. Yesterday was my first tour of the season, I will be takeing the tour challenge once a week for the next twenty-five weeks. My blood sugar always gets better but the first few tours are very difficult. I always have a Gatroade and a Powerbar with me when I go on my tour. Yesterday I did very well in the first three hours of the tour, I was at 90 when I took my break. I had my usual break snack and took .5 units of insulin to cover what i had eaten, that was a mistake. As I began to walk the machine in I started to feel low and I took swig of syrup to get a quick blood sugar rise. I felt good and headed in, I put away the machine and quickly ran in to test my blood sugar. My Dexcom read 64 but was trending down, I told the mechanic to get the Pixy Stix ready. When I saw 39 I cut open the Pixy Stix and downed some of it. Three years of avoiding the Pixy Stix was nice but I got my butt handed to me yesterday.
The good news is that a blood sugar of 39 is very rare, I learned from yesterday and know that I will not see a blood sugar below 40 again due to the tour. The tour and I have a love hate relationship, right now he loves that he has won. I will be back and I will be show the tour who the boss is!!!
