Do I track my food or my insulin shots?
Wednesday, April 01, 2015
I set a goal for myself of walking/ or elliptical w/ high resistance 20 miles this month. I did 31 miles. I started to exercise mid Feb. Not really wanting to- still not feeling the joy- but knowing I had to. I hired a personal trainer, cut down on going out to dinner, and decided that I would either pay a trainer or have to pay a doctor. Twice a week I meet with her. $40 bucks a week. How much would insulin cost me a week??
Then in march I set a goal of doing 20 hours of exerceise for the month. I did 13- and 31 miles!
The scale was still not moving. I went to get lab tests I was suppoosed to get in October. My doctor told me a year ago that if I didn't lower my weight (and therefore my glucose level,she would put me on medicines. I didn't go back in October. She had said I needed to loose 20 lbs. I hadn't lost any. Well I had, but then I gained them back :/ So when I went to get my blood drawn I remembered again-- something I had thought about before.
Do I want to track my food or my insulin shots??
Tracking my food intake is a pain in the ass. But having to track my glucose levels and my insulin shots would be a lot worse. So I tracked my food for 5 (or 6) days and already lost 3 lbs.
This is not easy. I asked the trainer if I will ever enjoy working out. She said yes! when you loose 30 lbs and feel so much better you will! She should know, she lost oover 100 and is 5'3" tall. It's not how many times you fall that makes you successful. It's how many times you get up.
