Getting Back on the Saddle

Getting-gack-on-the-horseToday will be the last day I spend on this non workout hiatus. Tomorrow I will getting back into gear with light workouts made up a 30 minute walk and just one set of weights per exercise. I feel as though my gut is getting much better and I am back on the road to good health. Exercise is the one piece of the puzzle missing and my body is ready to start working once again. My morning glucose number are on the rise as is my body weight and my body is telling me that it is time to get back to work. I will start off the first 30 days working light and allowing my body to acclimate to the changes, then maybe take it to a second level. But, I will always understand that my approach that I took not to long ago of working out in “Beast Mode” is damaging and will cause distress. So simply for now I am just getting back on the saddle.

  2. I wonder if you would mind telling me what the glucose level numbers should be. For example, what is normal? What is low? What is high? Thanks. I enjoy your posts.

    You know this has really been a nice inspo for getting back in there. I’m starting college in a few weeks and have to adjust my workout routine and this has calmed me and helped me know I can do this

    I haven’t even made it to the saddle yet. Still fighting to stay of meds but losing the battle. So, your posts are intensely interesting and important to me. Thank you for sharing.

  6. I’d be curious as to why your glucose rises without the work out, hmmmm. Meanwhile, I concur that your posts are indeed inspiring. I’ve got my plan written out, just looking for a decent log to use so I can track my results as closely as you do yours. 🙂
