So things have been a little hectic in my life. I was happily “promoted” to my new position of Temporary Administrator at my parish about two weeks ago. Same pay, more work. Since that point it just seems like the dookie keeps hitting the fan with issues I need to be involved with. This has made me a little annoyed, whiny, and moody. Which is something I am not fond or proud of. I however am trying my best to work on that situation.
One thing that always relaxes me is exercise, so I decided to go skiing on Tuesday. Which was great. Granted I was all by my lonesome, so I could not take great pictures of me doing tricks (which I don’t do), having fun, and just being me. I had to settle with chairlift pictures and a video.
The thing is that skiing was easy for me, at least on the diabetes front. My pump was in my pocket next to my warm legs and all the tubing was tucked in, warm, and unexposed. My Dexcom was in the front pocket of my jacket to keep track of things. I had snacks and stuff in my little Nike bag, that I ski with. (I also keep my sandals in there, that way when I am done skiing or take a break I have something to slip on.)
I was good to go. I had fun. My glucose levels and myself played well together which was nice, so I didn’t have much to complain about there. I do wish I had taken a picture of that graph. I can say I was relatively planked for most of the run. I did have to correct a little at one point, but no major issues. This just led to an even happier Brian. Well that and the fact I did not trip or fall at all. So that makes for a happy me as well.
Because it adds joy when you see this.
Or this. Happy Brian.
Yes I took a video, why not? Thank goodness for video stabilizing. Do you know how hard it is to try to record something and keep your arm straight to avoid bouncing? It’s not easy. Yet I enjoyed the day.
Note to self though, never check the blinking voice mail on your inbox when you come back home. It is normally never something fun. What an idiot I can be!
