"Nodcom, sorry to hear about the moodiness. May I suggest taking a walk? I know the weather might not be the greatest, but I always feel better and clear my head with a 20 to 30 min walk, and it definitely helps in the bg dept."

"Stress can raise your blood sugar so if you're stressing/pushing yourself when you're active, that can be raising it. Even when the activity should bring it down!"
