BEHOLD GYM WANNABE BUNNIES!!!!
I was so frustrated of constantly experiencing exstreme lows post cardio work out.
until a lovely type 1 diabetic American recommended I take a small bottle of natural orange juice with me (a 330ml bottle)
I eat a good breakfast to get me around 11-13. I then do 40 minutes intense cardio
half way through my work out before I get on my beloved cross trainer I drink half the bottle of juice, followed by 15 minutes on the cross trainer <3
then drink the rest of the juice straight afterwards. this keeps me from having a scary ass hypo in the changing room.
it takes me about 30 minutes to shower, get dressed and make myself look awesome!
I then go and get a almond milk coffee <3 and a light snack. the light snack stops me from dropping after the sugar high of the natural orange juice.
my snacks could be a small piece of gluten free banana bread (mmm yum) or a apple...
this will keep me good and stable until around 12.30 when I have my lunch....
I also find the days I go to the gym and do my circuit I can eat more and need less insulin (whoop whoop!!!)
orange juice, much healthier then cola and Lucozade. only one ingredient and the only days when I can indulge in a nice bottle of oj
has worked for me the past 2 weeks....which has been about 8/9 gym sessions...and my ass is looking sweet
hope this post helps someone else struggiling with the gym. its so important to keep fit. even more so as a diabetic.
big love people x
i have recently started to go to my local gym, i am not over weight however after almost dying at christmas due to necro panctritis, having to learn how to walk again. i havent been so active.
i joined my local gym over a month ago.
i go 3/4 times a week
i eat breakfast before i go, normally something carby and protieny with a banana. i make sure my numbers are in the high range around (11-15)
i have a fast 30 minute work out, and i build up a very good sweat.
i have a hypo almost every single time i go to the gym.
the only time i didnt was the morning i had a giant bagel with lashings of cream cheese and smoked salmon for my breakfast.
i love going to the gym but hate the hypos, and it genrally messes up my entire day.
any advice would be greatly appreicated.
i cant eat like a pig before i go as im going to get fit and tone up.
