Let's get moving!

Friday 5/14 - Let's get moving. Exercise . . . love it or hate it? Do you have a regular exercise routine? Or do you have trouble finding your exercise motivation? How do you manage your insulin and food to avoid bottoming out during your workout? Today is the day to tell us all about your exercise habits, or lack thereof.



Since Nate is only 23 months I don't have just a ton of knowledge on exercise and diabetes. What I do know is Nate is a crazy man! For such a small person he runs REALLY fast. At his gymnastics class they call him the ROADRUNNER. Funny! Anyway, exercise and a lot of physical activity does have a tendency to make Nate drop like a rock so for gymnastics I set a temp basal for 2 hours of -50% and still give him 10-15g of uncovered carbs. It usually works out but I do have to check him at least once during class to make sure he is not going low. Nate loves him some gymnastics. Watch out summer Olympics 2024!!

There are some things I can't prepare for as far as Nate's activity is concerned --- just chasing his sisters around the house can make him drop.

Although I can't prepare for all of Nate's crazy adventures I can check, check and check and carb, carb and carb to keep him from drop, drop dropping too low!

Oh you have the cutest kids and your house is spotless woman! My criteria is the show 'Hoarders' and if you have anything less than that, I proclaim you are WonderWoman - hee hee hee. I love Nate saying 'bum!'

Hi! I just found your blog. We're Texans, too!

My 9-year-old son was diagnosed with Type 1 in early March. I'm just getting to know everyone blogging and trying to learn.....such a big learning curve!

Looking forward to getting to know you!
