I had to miss my workout today due to Dr.’s appointment. I am diabetic and on a mission to take good care of myself. I told the Doctor of my intention to do a Tri in September and she said by all means go for it. Since 2009 when I began to see her I have lost over forty pounds and am no doubt in better physical shape than I was in my forties. Having said that I know that I will have a long training road. Several people have visited my blog in the last few days and I will be following their journey’s this year as well. I hope to do at least one run/walk a month as part of my training. I will also be raising money for different organizations at the same time. It’s all good. We will make this trip together.
I went to a wake today. I have known this young woman since she was a child. She died Christmas day of complications of a life with diabetes. She was 41 years old. She was a wife and mother and one of the nicest people you ever want to meet. It was really sad. Her mother said to me please take your diabetes seriously and do every thing that you can to keep it in check.
Point well taken. None of us know if what we do will be enough. Enough to prevent, enough to reverse but one thing is for sure. Doing nothing will get us no where. I must be my priority to be of any use to anyone else. I wanted to mention this to all of you.
I know that many of us are going through financial , relationship, family, school, job traumas but you have to suck it up and make sure that you are first. No guilt. Take care of yourself. Need to visit the doctor, do it. Automatic withdrawal for the gym and you don’t go, start now. Need a time out take it. I scheduled my workouts for the next eight weeks. Can’t forget, it’s on the calendar. Hope some of you will join me.
