Whew! Today my husband and I hiked 16km in the Northern Black Forest (Nordschwarzwald) near Bad Herrenalb. It was beautiful for many reasons. So, for day 11 of the happy diabetic challenge, I’m extra thankful for two things. First, the nature.
Second, my diabetes played along VERY nicely. I started the hike at 156mg/dl, followed by 86, 96, 96, and 112 throughout the hike. I used a 40% basal for the entire duration (4 hours!). I even split two bananas with my husband and didn’t need to bolus for them.
I wish every day could be like today. Beautiful weather, beautiful nature, and beautiful blood sugars.
