  1. Because I also have attention span problems I am actually reading three books right now. Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography The Queens Gambit And, Legion (a Warhammer 40k book)
  2. There is actually a method to the madness. The kindle stays next to the bed and only ever leaves that spot is when I travel or in the middle of something good and I take it to the living room with me. In either case I always return it to that spot which is why I was so confused that I had lost it since it never moves. I have difficulty sleeping and frequent insomnia and my wife does not. A lamp would disturb her and the back lit screen of a kindle doesn't. Hince the storage location. It is not uncommon for me to need to grab it in the middle of the night without having to get out of bed and wake her.
  3. I FOUND IT! I turned the house upside down for the umpteenth time and no sign of it. Finally I reached the acceptance phase and was just going to buy myself a new one. To console myself I went to my bookshelf to go analog and there it was under another book. It was not a place that I would put it so I suspect my spouse cleaned up and forgot about it. Regardless I found it and I'm off to read to celebrate.
  4. So I have lost my kindle. I have turned my house upside down looking for it and it is nowhere to be found. Logically this isn't that big of a deal. It will probably turn up and worst case I buy a new one and my library is backed up on the cloud. Illogically I am losing my mind over this. I cannot describe how much this is bothering me that I can't find it. I don't know why I am fixating on this but I keep stopping what I am doing every few hours to search for it in the same places I have already looked.
  5. Training Jump Rope Halos 5x3/4 Push Press 24 kg 5x3/4 Goblet Squat 24 kg Sphinx pose Shin box Good workout but this kettlebell is not freaking getting any lighter. Might lock it in on 3 reps and just work on adding sets. So cold in the garage this morning. I hate insurance. The CGM I got from the doctor has run out and I have a script to get more but my insurance company wants preauthorization and they are of course, Why do you need that? So irritating.

  8. Training Halos Shin box 10/17 Incline Pushups 10x4 Swings 24 kg Sphinx pose Child pose Decent workout. I have not been sleeping much this week. A lot of late nights and screen time.
  9. Yes, you use the metric system and we use Eagles per freedom. Yeah, most of the world uses mmol/L and the US uses mg/dL to measure glucose. Gotta be different I guess. You can divide my numbers by 18 to convert to a range that you might be more familiar with. When looking at control charts flat is good!
  10. Training Halos Shin box with hip extensions 2x1/2/3 Push Press 24 kg 2x1/2/3 Goblet Squat 24 kg Sphinx pose Child pose Pigeon Pose Figure 4 with rotation Good workout. I was tired and thinking about skipping but felt good once I got going.
  11. I know that this graph doesn't mean anything to anyone else but I tried predosing my insulin before I ate lunch at 11am and this is my blood sugar. It's flat! It didn't spike, like at all. This is absolutely amazing. I've always been too scared to do this and not go low but now that I can see what's going on is a game changer.
  12. Yep. Insulin resistance varies throughout the day so insulin and exercise hits quicker and harder sometimes more at one time than other times. It is different for everyone and can suddenly change for no reason. The body is weird. A lot of people with diabetes exercise first thing in the morning because of dawn phenomenon. Early morning hours the liver starts dosing the body with glucose I guess because it is trying to get us ready for the day. In practical terms it means that my blood sugar is high when I wake up and tends to be stubborn and not want to come down. Perfect time for exercise which burns glucose on its own and less likely to result in lows. Some activities I have found really difficult to do. I used to love running but my BS drops so hard and fast I have to basically eat a meal with no insulin before hand and it is just not worth it to me.
  13. It did. I got a good check up from the doctor. He said that I had the circulation of a much younger man, which I attribute to exercise. Then the nurse gave me some love by being surprised by my age. We were the same age but thought I was about 10 years younger. It made me feel good about myself. I do not look young but most people are surprised when I tell them that I am 44. They also put a continuous glucose meter on me. It is good for 10 days and I am trying to get in a supply for more now. It is interesting to see my numbers in real time. Watching my dawn phenomenon explains why early morning exercise and skipping breakfast works so well for me. It is disconcerning to watch it go up so fast after eating and waiting for the insulin to kick in and bring it back down with such a longer delay than I thought. I see why some people predose meals. So a lot of insights already in a short amount of time. Should be interesting. Just getting started honestly. The shiny new kettlebell is exciting to play with so easy to motivate myself. I still think of the next day as a "off day" which adds a extra hump to get over. Once I get going I know it will be easier but I just need to get my mind ready first.
