What's so important about exercise or interesting about It. Well doctors tell

us that we're supposed to exercise three times a week for 30 minutes and that

exercise we normally are looking at things like running or going to the gym.

But that's not the exercise that I'm talking about. This exercise that we tend

not to look at and we don't recognize this as exercise, is important to pay

attention to. Many people don't look at these little teeny places we do exercise.

Like looking for our keys, even taking a shower. If we're standing still in the same

spot for an hour we burn off carbohydrates. They're usually carbohydrates we're not

considering or managing our blood sugar. When we're giving our insulin we're not

thinking about that we're gonna be rushing out the door, we've misplaced

our keys, we look for 15 minutes and we've just burned off maybe 10 carbs.

Because we are rushing around all of a sudden we have a low blood sugar.

We started off at 80 mg/dL and now we're at 60 mg/dL and this is why it's so

important to pay attention. I live in New York City so I take the subway and if I

don't pay attention to that I have to walk a block or two then get on a subway

train and walk a couple more blocks and if I don't pay attention to that

then my blood sugar can go low before I even get to work. I've calculated over

time, it burns off about 15 carbs for me. That's a lot! So, if I leave my home at a

hundred or 120 mg/dL, I could be down to 60 mg/dL or 50 mg/dL by time I get to work. If, I don't eat

something that's 15 carbs before leaving. So these are the little subtle things

that it's important for us to pay attention to. What is exercise and What

is exercise for you? And, think about how you could adapt management to include

the extra little tiny exercises that we do every day. My name is Eliot LeBow. I
