11-14-14 – Friday – Good T2D Day

Another good T2D day. The morning glucose reading dropped again and is now down to 74. This is a good sign, but now I have to be careful and may have to consider lowering the medication sooner than anticipated. Today I will get back to strength training with chest exercises on the bowflex. My shoulder still has a small amount of discomfort in it, so I will keep the exercises slow and at a minimum.

I have noticed that it is more difficult to get those weights up this morning. I don’t know if it is because of the lower blood sugar or the fact that it has been about 3 days longer since I normally do chest exercises. At any rate I feel as though I am still making the same amount of progress as far as working those muscles. Doing fly’s brought about pain in the right shoulder so I stopped at doing just one set. As much as I don’t want to do it, I will have to give the shoulder more recovery time.

3:30 AM – Blood Sugar – 74, Weight – 170.4
Bowflex – CHEST
Bench Press – 310- 12, 13, 12
Incline Press – 310- 8, 9, 9
Decline Press – 310- 10, 10, 8
Fly’s – 80/80- 8
Situps – 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20 = 240
