Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Today on Sensible Splurge Friday Aug. 31 2012

The dangers I face in my daily efforts in reversing type 2 diabetes.

The Dangers of Riding a Bike

Dangers of reversing type 2 diabetes

Just before the pain starts

Reversing type 2 diabetes and staying healthy can be health hazard.

This morning a car passed way close to me this morning.  I am still healing up from my road rash of a month ago and the last thing I need right now is to tangle with a jerk in a large pick-up truck.  I am going to lose every time.

I know the guy could see me.  I have a very bright red flashing rear LED light and a very bright flashing LED headlight.  He either was not paying attention or just wanted to give me a bit of scare. Any more accidents and I am going to seriously consider just putting the bike a trainer and move the battle for reversing type 2 diabetes indoors.  It’s not as much fun and I think the exercise value is less.  My legs feel it more when I ride for real on the streets.  But it’s hard to get hurt on a trainer.

That made me start to think about bike safety and my lone bit of protection, my bike helmet.

I don’t like wearing my helmet.  I would rather wear a little bike cap as cyclists used to wear years a go.  I think they’re cool looking.  But I wear my helmet because it’s good for me.  That made me think about the question of, how much protection does my helmet give me?

I really don’t know.  Just about every magazine, website and blog recommends that I wear a helmet, the skid lid, the brain bucket.  So I do.

I’m taking it on faith there is some protection there.  Not much, but some.


The Numbers:

  • Fasting Blood Glucose Level:  102 mg/dl.  Not bad considering the late night pizza carb fest.
  • Weight:  186 lbs.
  • Exercise: 45 minute bike ride.  Way past 10 miles this morning. I feel so proud.  Burned off a bunch of carbohydrates.
  • Mood:  7.0

The Menu:

  • Breakfast:  Usual morning fruit medley and oatmeal with craisins.
  • Lunch:  Tomato basil soup
  • Dinner:  Tex-Mex!  My Sensible Friday Splurge
  • Snacks:  A small handful of almonds.
