It is nice having some time off of work since I am still waiting for my renewed license to arrive in the mailbox, but it is turning out to be a little too much time off for me. I think I may be going a little stir crazy. If the weather was a little nicer outside I would be searching for trails to visit on my mountain bike, but with the rain and dampness in the air it just chills you to the bone. One of the good things about being home is that I have been able to get a lot of those little projects completed that I have been putting off for so long, and I do have one major project left that needs attention.
I want to go through all of my financial paperwork that I have organized in a file cabinet and get rid of just about everything I don’t need. I am one to save all paid bills and receipts and I just don’t believe that there is much of a need for it anymore. Of course I will save those documents that I need for taxes, but I don’t need to save everything. It is just too much clutter, and that whole system I have in place is driving me crazy. I found an app for my cell phone that acts as a scanner, where you can scan a document by taking a picture of it then sending it to drop box. I think that this may be a better option where I can save many of these documents in digital form. One of the best things about paying of debt is that I don’t have as many documents anymore, but still I have enough to see the need for increased organization. I will start this project today and see where it takes me. It brings me great joy thinking about going completely paperless. Many of the bills I get are through email. After paying them I save the receipts in a folder in my email program and I am seeing great benefits in trying to take this even further by doing it with other accounts.
There is one great benefit to being home this week and that is the Diabetes Summit. It is an online event sponsored by Dr. Brian Mowll. Dr. Mowll believes that T2D in completely reversible and is hosting 40 guests from different area’s of health to discuss how this disease can be conquered. Yesterday was day #1 of 7, and the good thing is that it is free. All I had to do was register. I look forward to today’s talks. There is the option of purchasing the complete set of discussions for anyone who can’t find the time to view the Summit right now, but as I am out of work I don’t see it in my budget right now, and hey, I do have the time.
I am not happy with my blood sugar and I know that I opted to change my routine to include more cardio, but I am starting to think that this may be a mistake. I believe that I was doing much better when I was doing just weight resistance exercises, but it still may be too early to tell. I will give this new routine a few more days, but if I don’t see any significant results I am going back to strength training alone and try to get some cardio in later in the day.
