I Have a Purpose, A Goal, and a Plan
Wednesday, July 10, 2019
Now that I am home most of the time I am out of excuses to consistently eat well and exercise regularly though there will be plenty of challenging days ahead. And I have to take the threat of diabetes seriously because it is a devastatingly sneaky and dangerous disease which too many folks do not grasp and for which they pay a terrible price later. Just this year a younger friend lost a second leg to charco foot, a devastating effect of diabetes. He consistently ignored the warnings of needing to change his eating habits and was posting lavish high carb meals and sweets that he was eating IN REHAB AFTER LOSING A SECOND LEG. Seriously. Seriously? That was a big part of my own awakening to the threat a prediabetes diagnosis really was. No more sloughing it off or denial of the facts.
Today was Day 4 of being back on the PreD Spark Program, the third day of gettting in planned exercise, and the first day of Bootcamp. It isn't really a team anymore but the videos are all there so it is just a matter of doing the daily video and adding cardio. It is a start and I learned 10 years ago that if I posted accountability blogs I stuck with the Bootcamp so that's my current plan and I hope to not fall flat on my face.
I am thankful for the support I have received already and pray I can be a blessing and an encouragement to those supporters as well as any others who pass this way!
