UPDATE: My visit with the endocrinologist (diabetes doctor) - another video log
I had an appointment with my new endocrinologist yesterday because my primary care physician prescribed that I visit him. I was pretty nervous going into the appointment because I wasn't sure what he would want or need to do to me, or what new "coming to Jesus" message he might have for me. (I've had a few of those recently, if you recall.)
So good news for a change. More than good news, really - validation that what I'm doing, what I'm trying to do most of the time, anyway, is working. Such relief. And motivation to keep going, to press forward, even to go further then I've been going.
I hit the treadmill at work today. On a Saturday. On a holiday Saturday. And I'd already gone Thursday and Friday, too. I want to do something for at least 30 minutes every day. It's so easy to see how much better my blood sugars are when I make cardio a priority, so let's just do it. Perhaps not EVERY day but as close to every day as I can get it. And it won't always be moderate-to-high intensity...sometimes it might just be a walk with the dog or a bike ride around the neighborhood, and that's OK
Wow, it feels so good to be alive. Today is a good day.
