I'm envious. We're probably about 3 1/2 months away from my first ride....

It was in the 50's and a little windy, but I overdressed. I'm good for riding down to mid 20's if I keep moving. With what I wear below freezing, I can still move pretty much unrestricted but I think if I had a breakdown I might wish I had on more, with my feet being the most susceptible.

I've had a horrible cold the past 5 days - lots of congestion, lots of coughing, and next to no sleep as I wake up coughing - needless to say I haven't been to work, which means I haven't been going up and down the stairs to the 4th floor or walking around.
Today I was feeling pretty good - stopped coughing and I can breath thru my nose again, so I went down in to the basement and chopped some firewood. I use a 15 pound maul, a 2.5 pound wedge and the average log is about 1.5 feet in diameter. I stopped after chopping 5 logs ...
Guess what? I'm still sick - that was hard!!!!!

One of the parts I hate about being sick like that is how long it takes to get back to what you used to be able to do.

Well I started out for a bike ride this evening but cut it short when coming up on a broken glass bottle on the shoulder of the road. Fortunately I avoided running over a shard and getting a flat. The time it took to pick up all the little pieces, I could have come home and got a broom and went back and it would have been quicker. I don't think it was a "good ole boy" just riding around drinking and tossing a bottle out, because "they" would have been trying to hit a road sign. The signs are off the shoulder of the road around here and there was no sign near there. And most don't drink Hennessy Cognac. I rest my case.

Came home and finished early getting my steps in for the day.

Today was my day off, so I got out of bed at 11 am, and sat on the couch all day.

Today will make me 75 days in a row of getting my daily step goal. Since I'm working today, I should make it.

etherea and itissteve like this.

Need to get back to an exercise pgm. In a bad motorcycle accident last September (broke my back in 3 places, 4 ribs, 2 bones in my hand, bruised both knees, etc.). Car driver came around a corner and crossed the double line and came right at me. Did my best and avoided a head-on collision but couldn't stay on the bike. Woke up against the guard rail with someone crouched over me. Thank God there are still some good samaritans left in the world. Couldn't walk
or raise my head to even see who was helping me.

Being down for so long - seems like just coming back from the mailbox I need to stop for a nap. Had to give up backpacking also.

Lack of exercise and lots of pain meds took a toll on my BG. Getting better slowly, but it is mentally tough from being in pretty good shape (did 4 backpacking trips this year) to awful/no shape after literally over night.

Maybe I will reward myself with a Fitbit or Apple watch to keep my going.

Learnings from a diabetic perspective I want to share with all -
1) Paramedics don't always check to see if you have a medical ID necklace. I could barely talk and they didn't check. So - I now wear a bracelet instead. I figure they will probably see it if they put an IV in my arm.

2) Insulin/snack bag. I had one in my motorcycle saddlebag, but it was tough getting people to find it and realize what it was. So, I sewed a big medical patch on it that says "I have diabetes". Can't miss it now.

3) I also sewed a large "I have diabetes" patch on my daypack. If I have problem out hiking (it is pretty rugged and remote in the mountains of NC where I live), people may know how to help.

My advice for exercising and getting back in shape:

Start light and easy, do what you can do today, try to do a little more tomorrow. Don't worry if you don't do more every day, sometimes its good to take a step backward or days off to recuperate. When I first started walking, I too would get tired walking down the driveway to the mailbox and then the walk back up the driveway to the house, and I had not had the beating it sounds like your body took. It has taken me a while to build up to walking 5 miles in a day, and while longer to do that multiple days in a row.

Set goals that are doable and repeatable. It doesn't matter so much how much you do, its more important that start to do. Tracking devices do help keep you motivated, but it is odd that even after reaching a daily step goal, followed by riding 20 miles on a bike and doing some yard work, etc. then the thing tells you that you need to move. I do like to do competitive stuff, but I like it more participating in the challenges to making your set goal.

Starting out it seems like it will be forever to get to where you want to be. After getting there and looking back, it wasn't really that long at all.

i like your innovative ideas of increasing awareness of medical conditions and treatment. I got Road ID bracelet with medical and emergency contact information for those very reasons. My bracelet tells I'm type 2 diabetic, meds I take, and don't give me a glucose IV.
