I reported a week ago last Monday. As always, during reporting week I had blood sugar problems. It's such a drastic change from summer -- even though this summer was full of workshops. This time I kept going low, partly because they had separated the meetings into three places, and those three places were as far a part as possible. And the restrooms were far too. Plus my room.

The worst part, is that I'd get settled in a meeting and the powers that be would decide that I needed to fix something. Broke projector, broke notebook, broke connection etc. So I'd have to walk from one far place to another, fix the broke then, then walk back. I was getting in over 10,000 steps a day.

This week has been interesting and I've been getting in about half the number of steps. I like the calmer though. Kids started back Monday, and they pulled the seniors out for 2 days, then the freshmen for two days. Very odd. And I found out that I'm practically a freshman teacher.

But I do have great news. My insulin usage has gone from about 120 average to 90 average. My weight has also dropped, at least 5 pounds, maybe 10. I'm playing with a new Beta device -- I am not sure how much I can say about it, but it looks like a useful tool.

Next blog post is going to be the Dexcom and happen in a few minutes.
