I am ecstatic to see my blood sugar coming down once again and know I should be back under 100 by the end of this week. With this said I am really starting to question whether or not I want to start lifting weights again. I know I have been through this same thing before, but maybe this time I will learn that sticking to simple calisthetics and walking is enough.
Each time I go into a new hard working routine I end up in the same boat. My blood sugar escalates and I take time off to watch it come back down. How do I know that this in itself is not damaging and I am sure that it is.
I am taking the rest of the week off to allow my body to get back to square one. In the mean time I will be working to get past my first week on the job and sit back and think about all that I have learned over the weekend. I have notice my weight on the constant rise and each time I look in the mirror I see a better physique and it is driving my ego to push harder and build faster. But in reality it really is not helping my situation with dealing with Type II Diabetes.
I have to take a step back and build a daily routine that keeps my body active, but does not punishing. The problem with lifting weights is that each time I do it I feel driven to bring each routine to the very limit. The results that I am actually looking for each day is to wake up and see my blood test showing under 100 and preferably under 90.
I never want to give up exercising, but limiting the high intensity workouts prevents the liver from releasing too much glucose into my body. I have to establish a moderate plan of action that will keep my body in balance.
