The finished product. The big stuff goes up with lots of huffing and puffing but never shows. It's the detail that is easy, muscle wise, but shows to everyone so it takes lots of time.
My training hasn't gone as well. I'm having a motivation problem and can't seem to get myself out the door for my runs. I got a few in but I procrastinate and when I do get out my mind tells me to cut it short even after mile 4. I would take a break and switch to cycling but I have a marathon in 6 weeks. Will keep you updated.
The blood sugars have been terrific. Since I've been home I've only gone to a fast-food place a couple times and my dinners have been healthy works of art. The diabetes doc emailed and wants me to wear a sensor for a week that tests my blood sugar several times a minute. I would love to have one of these full time but the insurance only pays if very severe conditions exist, maybe some day.
Well off for my long run. You can tell my motivation that I'm updating my blog instead of running.

My mothers favorite is gumbo So my kids decorated Mardi Gras style. I'm making fried catfish, gumbo, fried okra, and king cake.
My run today was very hard but I got through the 12 miles.
I've been building a sundeck all week and running. Lots of activity has kept my blood sugars low and quite a few lows. But my body is super tired and sore. Funny thing is I've gain 4 lbs, not lost any weight. I hope it's new muscle.

We got the windows and sliding glass door in today. A lot of water proofing. Interesting day for the diabetes. I had 3 saperate lows, not fun. I guess it's this type of heavy lifting work and running 5 miles in the morning and another 5 at night. Physical activity is the key to keeping sugars low.
