This past week, I got some blood work done on a whim. I fasted for 17 hours, did a legit CF Football workout, then went and got the work done. I was shocked when my blood glucose came back at 106: pre-diabetic indicator. WTF! My total carb intake is minuscule: A cup of berries, a glass or two of red wine, and whatever residual carbs are in almonds and walnuts. Robb Wolf, coincidentally, put up a post that addressed this very issue. Type 1 Diabetes and CrossFit.
Finally, a long overdue post for Lori's cat. Hard wired to the past.
