Click for the One Thing to Improve – Wednesday 5/16 Link List. Yesterday we gave ourselves and our loved ones a big pat on the back for one thing we are great at. Today let’s look at the flip-side. We probably all have one thing we could try to do better. Why not make today the day we start working on it. No judgments, no scolding, just sharing one small thing we can improve so the DOC can cheer us on!
And that would be… Exercise
I know my BGs are better when I exercise. I know I feel better when I exercise. I know it’s good for me when I exercise.
When I was diagnosed, just over 7 years ago, we bought a treadmill. And I used it, sort of, kind of, sometimes… And every few months, I’d get on a kick to do better at using that treadmill, and I would. I really would. But then…
And now – my truth – I haven’t been on it in six months.
Even worse – due to the reconstruction going on – and on – and on, at our house, it’s folded up.
And we cancelled our gym membership this month. We aren’t using it. It costs money. And so, we’re done with it for now.
Once the construction stuff is done, I have promised myself that I’ll get back into an exercise routine. For now, when I’m at work, I sometimes take a break and just do the stairs for a few minutes, or when the weather is nice (still waiting), I’ll walk around the building a few times. It works but I need the routine of doing something consistently.
