This is ending my third week of exercise. I have gone to the gym about 5 times this week either to do weights or cardio. The big change that I have seen is that I have more energy. I actually look forward to going to the gym after work. I don't feel like I just want to take a nap all the time. I did have a bad day last week when my blood sugar just would not come down. It stayed around 300 most of the day. I'm not sure what was happening there.
This morning my blood sugar was 100, The mornings before that were Friday 104, Thursday 75, Wednesday 72, Tuesday 89, Monday 104, 164 on Sunday. I have split the Lantus that I was taking to 16 in the morning and 16 in the evening before bed. If I have a problem time it appears to be in the evening and that is why the Lantus was split. Also, I was dropping in the middle of the night quite often. Overall, I am taking 8 less units a day of Lantus since starting to exercise.
Overall, feeling better is great, but I would like to lose weight also and that doesn't appear to be happening. Maybe a pound or two, but not much more than that. I have to try and be patient which is difficult for me since I am not good at waiting.
