I have seen KAOTIC’s posts about his workouts and his push-ups. One winter, I challenged myself to do push-ups. I got up to 47, and then for some reason stopped. I hurt my shoulder and needed to rest it so it would heal. The short rest turned into a permanent break. Well, I have changed that, and every time I see KAOTIC’s posts, I do 10 push-ups.
I hope to build up 5 extra push-ups a month. Last time, I increased by 1 push-up every day possible.
If others can do push-ups, why not me? Why can’t I be the one to succeed? It is all up to me. I hold the answer to those questions. I want to succeed and do those daily push-ups. If I succeed in little challenges, I can succeed in bigger ones like controlling Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) with food, exercise, and a minimum amount of medication. I can and I will.
If others can control T2D, so can I! I will use the SparkPeople Daily Challenges to help me! I will lean on my SparkFriends, and I will not give up! This is a life-long battle for quality of life. Every morning, I take about 20 minutes to visit SparkPeople, and track my food, exercise, and gain motivation from my SparkFriends. Then I take 25 minutes to do my exercises with The Classical Stretch. Later in the day, I get out for a walk and get in at least 11K steps. All-day long, I eat my very low carb diet and look for a new healthy recipe. Twice a week, I get in my Yoga and deep breathing exercises.
RKOTTEK motivates me to look very closely at the food that I eat. What I eat is as important as what I do. I've been struggling to keep my blood sugar numbers under control, and he has a great understanding of food chemistry, and how our food affects our body. I would be in a very bad place if I did not have his help in figuring out how to eat.

Now for the tough part: I have to take this great motivation and put it into practice. This has been a dilemma for generations!
