I’ve been clawing my way out of an exercise funk that started around the first of the year. It’s been a terrible fight so far, and full of speed bumps.
About eight weeks ago I started getting back to the YMCA for basketball. About six weeks ago I twisted my ankle while playing. Worst sprain [...]Continue Reading →
December 24, 2012. Christmas Eve day.
I felt blessed to get in a couple hours of basketball, even on a holiday. We played hard. I had a lot of fun, and wore myself out quickly. Blood sugars were pretty normal for most of the session, with a slight spike as I was finishing.
We got [...]Continue Reading →

While vacuuming down all of this food, I kept saying “Hang tight Scott, you don’t need much”. That kept [...]Continue Reading →
Since my dLife article hit the page I have been getting e-mail after e-mail about people who have had their medic alert jewelry completely ignored, or reports of their loved ones being put in harms way due to their information being ignored, even when very clearly displayed.
It scares the crap out of [...]Continue Reading →
I was hungry for dinner and I wanted to eat soon after getting home. My wife has been graciously helping me with dinner (one of my trouble spots) and was cooking a portioned serving (a.k.a. [...]Continue Reading →
