So I have a long way to go and a short time to get there, so to speak. I’ve been looking at my routine, and, to add to it, I either need to extend my morning workout or add an evening routine. I’m already getting up at 5:45, and don’t want to up that too much (although heat will make it essential to move it up some), an evening routine makes sense. Plus, it will help maintain the blood sugar even better.
I’ve waited for the reveal on a dirty little secret: I am in between dr. visits, and because of my declining blood sugars, decided to try cutting one of my medications in half. I’m still monitoring my sugars closely, and the plan was/is that if they start to climbm I will adjust accordingly.
I’ve been doing it 2 weeks. They are still within target.
As I mentioned elsewhere, I try to get my postprandial blood sugar an hour after the evening meal rather than two, because I want to know just how fast my body is responding. Again, thosse numbers are coming in strong as well.
I am looking into video options because I want to show you just how far I’ve come in a short amount of time. Here’s a “tale of the tape” between February and now:
weight: 292 then, 250 now
Blood pressure(average): about 160/100 then, 120/75 (or below) now
A1C: 11.1 then, 5.7 now
Blood sugar: above 300 then, below 90 (fasting), below 100 (postprandial) now
Cholesterol: 237 then, 189 now
Triglycerides: 232 then, 139 now
