Have a Drink and a Snack

Drink water before, during, and after exercise, even if you’re not thirsty.

Exercise can lower blood sugar, so if you have type 1 diabetes, eat a light snack 1 to 3 hours,  depending on the type of insulin you use, before a workout.

Keep items such as 3 to 5 glucose tabs, a small carton of fruit juice, a few pieces of hard candy, or 2 tablespoons of raisins with you to quickly raise your blood sugar if needed.

Do you wear an insulin pump? Ask your doctor for tips on working out with it on. If you use injected or inhaled short- or rapid-acting insulin, talk with your doctor about lowering doses before exercise.

Focus on Fun

Think beyond your workout. How can you be more active all day long? Take your dog on an extra walk, wash your car by hand, or lift weights between shows while you're watching TV.

Text a buddy and ask him or her to join you. The time really does go faster when you have good company and someone to cheer you on!
