I knew that when I went to the doctor asked for blood work their might be a problem. I haven’t been watching my diet as closely since I started weightlifting because I figured it would be enough. I must be getting older to the point one thing will no longer be quite enough for what I want to do. The blood tests don’t lie – I am diabetic and I have to deal with that. My main focus is to get my diet in check and get some of the fat off my body. Weightlifting will stay at low weight and high reps until I get my hernia repaired and I need to start hiking training. With school over I have decided I need to focus on my body for a while.
I guess the real thing that is bugging me is that this is a kind of a first for me. I have lived 47 years without a health label of any kind and now I have one – diabetic. A lot of things are still good – heart, lungs muscles and other things. It is the internal chemical crap that is giving me trouble and it is something I have to fight more consistently with diet.
I would appreciate some prayers for those of you who pray. I don’t feel let down by God, I actually feel the reverse of not taking good care of the body he gave me. Can’t really do much about it now but I feel like one of my goals is slipping through my fingers and I need to grasp it again and hold on tight.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
