Oatmeal experiment part 3

I got some new McCann’s irish oatmeal which I’ve heard nothing but good news about. After running 2, I threw some in the pot with Kashi, flax, pumpkin and some cinnamon. It was outstanding. I was hungry again by 8, so I need to add some protein to breakfast. It is better for my sugar …

November…race month

I woke up with the run on my mind. I wish I could have jumped up and gone for it then, but I went to church, then had lunch with family and we sat around chit chattin for a couple of hours. Finally…I was off! I have a mental block with the first 2 miles. …

Happy Boo Day!

The oatmeal experiment was interesting. Oatmeal, Kashi, and some blueberries made for a very tart but filling breakfast. I used too many blueberries but I certainly ate more than I usually get when it’s just blueberries. Those things are a superfood and I need more of them. Also this past week, I tried 2 new …

Goal–sleep by 9:30

I think lack of sleep makes me ugly. I really do. Purple eyes, dehydrated skin, and butt ass tired. I didn’t get to bed until about 1. I had to get up around 6 but snoozed until 6:30. I didn’t have time to run, but I did manage a fabulous breakfast. However, the rest of …

Sleeping in on a Friday!

Usually, I’m up and at school early on Fridays because I don’t have to get all dressed up.  I didn’t sleep as good either, more sinus crap and dreamed my father killed my newborn. I’m sure there are some deep-meanings behind that but my head hurts too much to think about it. I’ll save it …

Thursday….blech

I woke up from a weird terrible dream. Since I was already in the beginning stages of a sinus infection, crying only added to the exploding pressure in my head. I got up around 6 and decided to try to run a little. It’s hard to believe I used the treadmill as often as I …

New ideas for food.

This isn’t exactly running related, but in a way it is. Eating takes on a whole new game with diabetes. Eating what I want and eating what I need is so very often not the same thing. And I get tired of the same foods. I pour over cookbooks each weekend looking for something diffrerent …

long run 5 miles

RR: 5 miles at 1:05:34 Pre-run sugar-154 Post-run SL- 87 (way too low) Shoe: Brooks Glycerine I think I figured out the shoe problem. Stability shoes were too supportive in the wrong spots. Cushion shoes were too squishy. So….today, I tried cushy shoes with those old custom orthotics. Bingo. The first mile had that nagging …

well, here we go again

Long story short. Got released from therapy. IT band still sucks. Trained all summer for the 10K and I kicked ass. IT/hip not happy after. Stomach ulcer ruptured during a 10mile trail race. That’s all fine now and I’m literally starting over with the Couch 2 5K plan. Going from long runs of 14 miles …

I'm running and I'm happy

Its interesting how deciding to do this race hasn’t really changed my outlook. I made a promise to myself during the winter that I wouldn’t get caught up in HAVING to have discipline to train. And I’ve stuck to it. I still look at each day that I run as a gift. I missed so …

Race…..dare I try??

Hmmmm…..okay, like any other OCDish person, let’s put it out there. Cons: may be too soon I know I’ll want to do the 10 miles like I want to breathe and eat donuts. ……. …….. okay, I got nothin’ else. Pros: it’s CAHABA!! My first trail race and my first and only half trail race. …

Well, this can't be good.

Just when I think that I’ve got all the kinks out of dealing with running and diabetes, I get my ass kicked. And it’s hard not to panic and have this sky-is-falling perspective. I KNOW the dangers and possibilities of dying, but people risk death everyday. I just happen to have a quicker access. I …
