A Week in Review – Sunday 11-30-14 to Saturday 12-06-14

Week-in-Review1
After reviewing last weeks progress I have learned that I do have a very low tolerance for any type of carbohydrates other than fresh vegetables. Even though I haven’t included my diet for each day I have made notes to reflect on those days. A strict adherence to the paleo diet is the most important part of this journey to get healthy and stay on top of my blood sugar. The second most important part of this journey is walking. Walk until you start sweating and then commit to 30 minutes after that. And the third being resistance exercises. Work each muscle or muscle group to exhaustion on each set.

I can finally do shoulder exercises without pain. I had to totally blow my last routine, but I have dropped the weight even more to get through this series today. Today I am starting to do situps on the bowflex instead of the ball. I need more resistance and less reps for my abs.

Blood sugar this morning is up to 97 and the only thing that I can attribute this to is the fact that I went back for seconds at dinner last night. It was just meatloaf and pea’s, but the added protein must have converted to sugar.
