Life changes so quickly sometimes that it catches you by surprise. A position I have been working for some time now was just a temporary position and will come to an end this Friday. I still have another position to fall back on and although less desirable it is in my best interest right now to step in that direction. Just like any relationship that comes to an end moving from one career to another leaves so many memories of people who we worked with, goals we set and accomplished and all of the changes we go through in that career. I remember all of the changes I went through after retiring from law enforcement, and here I am once again feeling the same way. It’s hard to say goodbye, but I have to keep faith that when one door closes another door opens. So I will stand up tall, dust myself off and move on to whatever lies ahead.
In the mean time I must remember to keep pushing forward on my mission to finding the key to living a healthy life with Type II Diabetes. So right now I am looking at my blood sugar under 100 again, but I feel that it should be a lot lower based on my current diet. I believe that due to all of the resistance exercises my body is staying in a state of small inflammation. This is not bad inflammation, simple the inflammation involved in the muscle recovery process. I am on day #6 of taking creatine and yes, it has made some incredible changes in the way I am lifting. I am not getting the joint pain I used to get when I lifted heavy and I have the ability to lift heavier and longer which will help to build muscle fibers. So far it’s a win, win.
