Oatmeal and Blueberries: A 25 Carb Breakfast

I woke up this morning and tested at 92 mg/dL. Exciting!!  I am usually over 100 mg/dL so this was a chance to eat some carbs before working out.  I chose 1/2 serving of oatmeal, yes - I know - 1/4 cup, with blueberries and a splash of sugar free creamer. Although my breakfast only added up to 25 g of carbs, my usual breakfast is about 20. Fifteen minutes later at 7am  I tested at 133 mg/dL and I hopped on the Precor and did my 30 minutes. I try to break a sweat but not kill myself. I figure the interval training is probably the best for me!  So at 8:45am I was at 103 mg/dL. I really thought I would be lower after working out and then getting ready for work, but I have to say I'm okay with 103 mg/dL. At least it didn't go up, right!!??!!
