I've just started getting back into regular exercising this week and what a difference it has made in my morning blood sugar numbers! They've been under 120 every day that I've exercised. This morning after my 4th consecutive day of 45 minutes of cardio/ST it was 91. That was very motivational. I have to keep it up!

Definitely keep exercising. Sometimes it's a matter of changing it up. I change things up weekly. Sounds strange, but it keeps my brain challenged and more focused, as well as physically challenged.

Have to be persistent. And sometimes there IS a period of time after exercise for me (like 1/2 hr. after) when my blood sugar will peak, but then in another 1-1/2 hrs. it is down in normal range. sometimes it just takes time for the body to react.

For the last 4 weeks I have been pushing myself hard on my cardio in the early morning. Monday through Friday I leave the gym drenched in sweat. My blood sugar numbers stay right in line the rest of the day with my diet. Today, I decided to experiment with the treadmill interval training settings. The 2 settings I tried, for about 25 minutes, were not even close to the intensity that I was used to. I also had decided to do some strength training today on the nautilus machines. I did not get my heart rate up or the sweat going like usual. By the time I got to test after lunch my sugar was 151. Normally it is under 120. Granted, the baked sweet potato may have been a little bigger today than yesterday but I have been having the same lunch for the last 2 weeks so I know what to expect. I eat a baked sweet potato with 5 sprays of Olivio and ground cinnamon on top and a small can of tuna with some dried onion and cayenne pepper (no mayo). So I am pretty sure that the cardio I normally do in the morning helps carry me through the afternoon. I need to maintain the intensity and keep the sugar down. The answer, for me, will not be more insulin.
