My wake up call
Sunday, November 08, 2015
I haven't been on the site as much lately, but I'm still around. I've been busy getting acclimated to my new job and shift. So far so good, I'm adjusting to midnights quite well.
I had my physical and labs done for my physical and my labs were not fantastic. My cholesterol is ok, it's not high but the numbers definitely could change for the better.
My fasting blood sugar was not good. I am heading towards being pre-diabetic. I know that I can turn this around with diet and exercise, but it's going to take some work. Diabetes does not run in my family, so this is really scary for me. I see it every day at work and know the harmful effects it can have on your body and overall health. I know that I have contributed to this by not eating right or exercising, so now I don't get to have an excuse of why I can't eat right or exercise. Yes it will be a struggle, but it beats the alternative of daily blood sugar checks and insulin and all the other things that diabetes can cause. I teach this to my patients on a daily basis and have always said I would never want to become diabetic.
So this is where I make my choice, and I choose to be healthy. I have the support of my husband. I would appreciate any support you may have to offer and any suggestion are greatly appreciated.
Thank you all in advance and thanks for reading my blog. Have a great day.
