Gentle Flow Logging

I've been at it again...logging my blood sugars, carbs and insulin doses for a second week in a row. This could be habit forming, at least I hope so. Had a major relapse of my cold, so my activity level was way off, but since I promised myself no judgements about the numbers, I continued to enter every number. This week showed a slight downward trend. Avg BG was 161, 43% in range, 49% high, and 8% low, with a standard deviation of 65. Still not ready to make any adjustments until I resume my normal exercise this week.

Speaking of exercise, I went to Gentle Flow Yoga class for the second time ever today. I'm still trying to figure out how twisting my legs up like a maimed pidgeon, posing as an insecure, trembling warrior, and sticking my butt up in the air to impersonate a dog can be considered gentle. I'm officially convinced that I must be the least flexible woman on the planet. The only other folks in the class who seem to struggle as much as me are the guys. I know it's not good to compare myself to others. Surely that is interrupting the gently flowing-zenlike-warrior-pidgeon-depressed-dog energy that I'm supposed to be generating. But sheesh, a girl needs something to do while taking breaks to avoid a full body cramp.
