I think I’m probably fighting off some kind of cold virus or maybe a really attenuated version of the flu, who knows. But I’ve been running higher numbers than usual–fasting numbers in the 130s, which is higher than I like to be at ANY time. But I’m not on any meds and of course I don’t have access to insulin except that which is produced by my stupid pancreas.
So under the circumstances should I:
Eat or not eat? I know that if I am going to eat I should stick to protein but since I’m already higher than I like to be I wonder whether I should just not eat at all. I do know to keep hydrated.
Exercise? I’m not running a fever, and it seems like exercise is the only other tool I have besides food choices. I worked out for 40 minutes on the exercise bike this morning and brought my number down to 116 but I wonder if I should be resting instead?
I just know I feel crappy.
