Health And Fitness Red Blue Green

I haven’t posted since week 4. There’s been so much going on with work, death, and other things.

Here’s the deal.

I’ve lost 4 1/2 lbs. That’s not as much as I would have liked by now, but I’m finally doing some serious things to promote my health. Some of you have read earlier posts and know some of this stuff. Feel free to skim.

1. I started drinking Shakeology shakes from Beachbody. This is a meal replacement shake which has more nutrition than any other shake on the market as far as I can tell. This is from their website: “You’ll get protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants, super-green foods, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and just about everything else your body could ever need.” I can honestly say I have more energy.

2. I’m doing PiYo, which is a workout that’s a cross between Pilates and Yoga. It’s really kicking my butt, but it’s going to be worth it! I also got this from Beachbody.

3. My blood sugar is staying really good. I just wish it would stay that way without insulin. I actually forgot my insulin the other night, and 24 hours later (when I realized I had forgotten it the night before), my blood sugar was only 167. That’s really not bad for no insulin. When I was first diagnosed, it was almost 400 without insulin.

I fully believe I’ll be able to kick the insulin by the end of the year. I’m really going to try hard. Wish me luck!
