A Week in Review – Sunday 12-14-14 to Saturday 12-20-14

Week-in-Review1Another week a another weeks work of data to review. This week and for now on I am including my diet and little notes for each day. I walked 10.85 miles this week and watched my blood sugar and weight go up and down. My diet stayed pretty steady other that a few mistakes which I certainly are learning to correct. I have been able to get back to pushing and pulling heavy weight on the bowflex as certain joints have pretty much healed up.

The biggest problem I had this week was with Oregon Craft beer. It is delicious and I should not be drinking it with type II diabetes. And certainly should not be drinking it in excess like I did a few times this week.

I finished Jason Seib’s – Paleo Coach on my Iphone and started Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey. I am learning a lot and taking notes and actually applying many proven techniques to my mission to see if they work out for me.

Overall I am pleased with my efforts this week and will build on what I learned from my mistakes to make next week a better one.
