Imagine: a silhouette that could save your spot when you have a diabetic emergency. Well, let me back up and tell you the reason as to why I feel this would be an important necessity in my life.
Sitting on the stage steps in the workout room. Watching everyone else involved in a group workout session of my favorite exercise class, body combat. I have to test my blood sugar because it's about half way through my work out. Damn-staring back at me on the meter is a big..fat..ugly......66. I didn't even feel that low! I quickly grab my fruit snacks...inhale them straight out of the package.
Wait. Watch the class. Ugh, this sucks.
I'm a regular in the class; everyone knows that I'm a diabetic. Looks of concern...
"Are you ok?" many people ask.
Wait. Watch. Repeat.
Ok, so I probably shouldn't have gone back into body combat as quick as I did...but I love the class. I reassured myself that I waited long enough and that I was feeling a bit better.
Before I went back on the floor, I glare out at everyone once again. What? People steal my spot? How aggravating. So, I get a low, and people think it's ok to take over my workout area? C'mon people, really? I go back out to my original space and make my way back in. I'm not losing my awesome workout spot because of my diabetic needs. I didn't look to my left or right, but I'm sure I got some evil looks for "making my way back in."
If only there was some way to "hold" my spot while I take care of myself. This is where an invention of a silhouette space saver would come in handy! It's only fair! How is it my fault that I need to suck down sugar and wait a few minutes to continue my work out? Should I be punished because of this?
Diabetics who enjoy working out deserve this kind of invention! :)
