11-13-12 – Thursday – I Broke the Type II Diabetes Code

weekly-menu-for-diabetic-diet-46420
Well today’s readings certainly are cause for celebration. My blood sugar is back in normal range at 82 and weight dropped once again to remain under 170. These are the results that I have been waiting a long time to see. I think I have broken the Type II Diabetes code. Now all I have to do is stay positive, stay focused and stay the course.

I am taking note here that staying on the treadmill each day and doing just 40 minutes at a much slower pace than before has yielded great results. The weight training has added to better physical health, but I am finding out that I should keep it at a minimum and try not to become an NFL Linebacker. It seems that with resistance training the gold can be found in the recovery and ample time is needed to allow this process to happen. In other words, lift heavy and allow time to heal. The next important step is just around the corner, and that is getting back into low intensity sports like basketball or tennis. These are two sports that I really enjoyed at one time in my life and the benefits of doing something that is actually fun will help with the body, the mind and the soul.

As I strive to move forward I will start to reduce my medication and keep things properly balanced. I believe that I am still another year away from declaring that I have conquered the battle with Type II Diabetes, but when I do reach that point I will start writing my book.

    That is AWESOME!! I am so happy for you. My husband struggles with this as well. Can’t wait to show him your update this evening. Do you feel that the Paleo lifestyle has also made the difference? That’s something we’re redirecting ourselves towards. Congrats! 82…WOW!!!
