I have always enjoyed sports. Long before diabetes came into my life, I kept myself busy by doing a sport each season. I played soccer, basketball, volleyball and ran cross country and track.
In college I ran two seasons of cross country and one of track. After college I found that I had to work a lot harder to stay active while busy working full time. I also missed the convenience of team or intermural sports that I enjoyed while in college.
The endorphins that exercise provides my brain are so needed. These days, walking is my go to sport as it is easy on my body. I am thankful to have beautiful views of mountains to take in as I walk around a lake.
Wearing the Dexcom CGM helps me to see when the effects of my exercise kick in which is so helpful.
Now I just need to get out for a walk regardless of the rain or the lower temperatures.
