75. 5 Tips for Optimal Blood Sugars When You're Out of Routine

August 1, 2023

It's undeniably harder for us all, including myself, to manage our blood sugars when we are traveling, going out to eat, or any other spontaneous events that come up. Afterall, diabetes thrives in a routine. 

BUT that doesn’t mean that we can’t feel good about our blood sugars while living with freedom and flexibility to enjoy life’s out of routine moments. 

I feel like this is a perfect time to discuss this topic because I'm coming off four weeks in a row of being more out of routine than in one. 

In today’s episode, I’m sharing the 5 key factors that helped me maintain 86% TIR throughout a month in which I… 

✅ Traveled to San Diego, Newport RI, Montauk, and Chicago
✅ Changed time zones
✅ Sat for long hours in the car/plane
✅ Had different food, exercise, and sleep routines
✅ Spent time in hot, humid weather
✅ Enjoyed a few drinks

You will learn both the tactical pieces to consider when you're going out of your routine and the one major mindset shift that has helped me and over 600 coaching clients at Risely.
