Hiking the Keystone Trail

We decided to take a hike today. I started out at 108 mg/dL. The trail we took was fairly level. Supposedly we walked about 4 miles and at the end I had 8115 steps but I forgot to check how many steps I had already taken that morning. This is such a learning process and I hope you will stay with me on this journey as I figure out how to keep track of all the numbers that would help us!  After the hike I was at 98 mg/dL. I thought I would be a lot lower since we didn't eat while hiking, just drank from our water bottles.  Later that day I made the mistake of having a few bites of Boston Markets sweet potato casserole and tested at 142 mg/dL 30 minutes later. I jumped on the Precor for 20 minutes. Sweet potatoes are not my friend.
In my life it isn't Live and Learn: it is Eat, Test and Learn!!
