I thought About It At Least

What's that you ask???? Cycling. With all the craziness in my life between work and family, there are two things that help me relax: 1. Molly and 2. Cycling. However, my bicycle has gotten lost between 50+ hour work weeks, brother's chemo treatments, Christmas shopping, etc. I'm pumped for the holidays and new year!!! I think I will be turning over a new leaf, I'm not sure what exactly that is but I feel happy and excited. Now all I need to do is finish my video and photo shoot by Jan. 7 and I can take a deep breath and relax. No, it's not that glamorous, we are shooting new tires for a large tire corporation located in Akron, OH.

On a health note outside of being expensive the insulin pump has been amazing! It's made winter and the holidays so much easier to manage my diabetes! No more digging through layers of clothes to find ripe flesh for injections. My blood sugar numbers have been a little crazier lately but that's what happens on a 14 hour work day. Throw in vendors sending me way more cookies, chocolate and sweets than any person should eat. Let alone a diabetic! After the holidays everything will settle back down and I can get back into a better groove. I would say my average right now is probably around 160, up from 130 a few months ago. My goal is to bring that back down by 2/1/09.

I will keep everyone posted on my blood sugars and cycling/fitness progress as we head into 2009. Happy Holidays everyone!!!
