I mean, I guess I could have gone to the gym. But when there is an almost 200,000 acre national conservation area with over 30 miles of hiking trails, I think I am going to hop off the elliptical while the weather is still good.
I started the hike with my blood sugar in the 170s. The conservation area is a one way loop that can take up to an hour to drive through, and I wasn’t quite sure where the trail head was for the hike I was planning. Once I found it and got a sense for the elevation, I set a temp basal. When the CGM showed me continuing to drop for a while, I reduced my basal a little more and had a granola bar. At the halfway point, I had another granola bar and a juice box. I ended up hiking just about 5.5 miles and while I would have liked to do it with a few less calories added, I am officially calling this first attempt a success.
