Well, I made it through Easter and all of the wonderful temptations that were presented before me. I did eat a few and did have a few drinks, but I did not go overboard. My blood sugar came way down from where it was yesterday, but still remains over 100 so I have some work ahead of me. The funny thing is that I have been putting on weight. In fact I am close to 10 lbs. heavier than I was six weeks ago.
I worked through a routine yesterday morning that I know helped bring my glucose down because I really ripped some muscles. As I was finishing up my routine with situps I noticed a little discomfort in my back. By bed time last night I really started noticing the pain in my back and here I sit with a big old question mark on my face… Now it wasn’t like I didn’t know this might happen as I felt a slight discomfort the day before, but still I pushed through both chest exercise one day and then arms the next. I have to always remember that working out like an athlete brings about the same problems that athletes go through, like injuries along the way. And at 54 years old I am certainly no stranger to these problems and know that as we age they can come for frequently. I am healthy and I know my back will heal quickly.
So it looks like I will be looking at some time off from strength training for a while. I have been writing quite a bit of negative things about my problems with fighting Type II Diabetes lately and don’t want anyone to think that I am being a downer. This is just my way of keeping tabs on my feelings at the time as I move on this mission. The truth is that there have been way more good days than bad. In fact I could honestly say that it has been probably around 80% good, and 20% problems. Not so bad. So I will keep on, keeping on.
